Are the boxes beside them in iTunes ticked?
Yeah mate which is bizarre.
Everything is ticked yet certain apps won't load onto my actual iphone
You're paying around £40 a month and you're happy with just getting 300 minutes?? Aren't you a student as well van?
EDIT: why don't you pick the following deal up from Tesco:
Handset price: £229.00
12 month contract: £35 a month
1GB mobile data
Comes to a total of £649.00. Shorter contract, more of everything, seems a no brainer to me. That's a pretty good deal, I know what I'm gonna ask for Christmas from my gf.
Does anyone have any new apps that are good?
Not downloaded anything in ages tbh. Only the occasional freebee like Plock. Don't have to be games, just something to keep my amused, want something new on my phone.
Also, for all those interested, Gamesloft are doing a free app every day of December. Today's free app is Driver, usually about 3 quid I think. May as well get it!
Have you installed the new appsync file from cydia?
dunno how I didn't see that deal, if tesco ring me to tell me its in stock within the next week i might cancel vodafone deal, ive got 7 days or something. i dont need the minutes, i rarely phone people up, i just text. Another thing that convinced me with vodafone was the signal, my flat and the local pub has rubbish signal on most networks but vodafone i know is perfectly fine.
Answer is above Pexbo.
Veetle developed their site to be compatable with iPhone. Not all the streams work, just the iPhone compatable ones.
Half tempted to get one of these before Xmas, i manage to get 40% off orange line rental at the moment which makes it look a hell of a lot more attractive
Copied this from another forum - basically my problem...
"I'm having the same issue. I recently updated the firmware. I tried to restore from a backup, but only some of the apps synced. Drag and drop does not work. Same behavior. I already tried unchecking "sync apps," removing all the apps from the phone, then manually adding them back. When I did that, again only some of the apps were installed, and were spread across 9 mostly blank pages. I have already tried wiping the phone and setting it up as a new phone, and when syncing the same thing happens. Only some apps install"
I updated to the new 4.0.2 or whatever it is and this has happened.
My phone is not jailbroken...
Currently I have 42 apps and only about 30 odd have loaded onto my phone.
Have you tried downloading them from the app store again?
Will that incur a charge as I have paid for them already?
No it will recognise that you have already paid for them. I know this as the missus has my iTunes account on her iPhone as well as mine so any apps I get she gets too for free
I have a picture but don't know how the hell to get it in here because it's in paint from a screenshot ha x
Save it as a jpeg, sign up for a free account on imageshack and upload it there and then paste the code it gives you on here.
You're going to regret showing some of those apps!
Take That.....ffs Viva.
In short, I dunno why they won't sync.
Angry birds won't move you see I drag it in and it won't go it disappears
Any idea where to get HD United wallpapers?? Or Cantona ones??
Fucking twilight as well
OK so as I mentioned a page or so back, my phone has been playing up a little so I've decided to restore it and then just re-jailbreak and only add the few things I really want. However when I go to reset factory settings to enable me to install the backup I made a month or so ago it wants to install 4.2 firmware.
Is there any way of restoring to my backup and retaining 4.1 so I can use the same jailbreak again?
You'll have to restore to 4.2 then roll back your OS. There's internet tutorials on doing the latter.
Will have a look, cheers.
cancelled my vodafone order, (it had been delayed due to stock shortage anyway) gonna go with tesco, i think the reason i didnt bother looking to the tesco thing was originally i was thinking you HAD to get the iphone insurance for £13 then when i realised i could get it for £6.99 or whatever i thought fuck it, ill go with vodafone, neglecting the fact tesco had an offer for £35. anyway, now i just have to wait for tesco to get them back in stock, they only have 32gb ones at my local extra store which is probably too much
Haha good choice, happy to have been of some help, I think I'm going to get the same deal in the next few weeks, so a few updates from yourself about the quality of Tesco mobile's coverage would be much appreciated.
Got mine down to £489 for 18 months with Orange and the various discounts/cashback i've accumulated. Will be ordering later this week.
A question regarding Iphone 4 reception
Can someone answer the following question for me please?
Once I made the decision to buy an iPhone 4, I decided to skim through the pages in this thread, around page 65, people start mentioning a problem with reception due to the way the phone is held by the user, to which apple gave a BS explanation, has this problem been fixed now?
Never was really much of a problem. It only affected certain phones and only was an issue if you were left handed.
see the small gap at the bottom of the side panel.. if you hold the phone tightly in a way which closes that gap, the phone can drop a bar or two
i tired it a few times just to see what happens and i went from 5 to 3 at the worst . not really an issue for me , affects the left handers more because of the palm covering that area.
and a case/bumper solves it if needed
It doesn't make a difference on mine.
tesco rang me this morning to say they had 2 in stock, i was top of the list (only cos the guy who put my name down put it there rather than bottom haha) and they held in for an hour so i have it
With all the hysteria about the "grip of death", a much more annoying problem got overlooked.
At launch, the iPhone 4 had a dodgy proximity receptor which meant that it didn't always lock the screen when you held it up to your face. This caused your ear/cheek to press random buttons while you were on a call. I'm covinced this caused most of the dropped calls put down to the aerial problem.
Thankfully, it was fixed with an OS update.
I'm still paranoid about getting the camera lens scratched. For me that was a major flaw in design.
Lads, my phone contract is up so looking for a bit of advice. I've narrowed my next phone down to a Iphone4 or Galaxy S but not sure which one to go for. The galaxy is only 1/3 of the price of the iphone so thats a plus but is it really worth the extra for the iphone? I've a ipod touch but i'm fearing it could be on its last legs as its 3 years old the battery life has gone to cock recently and the side volume button has stopped working, so maybe the I can kill two birds with one stone. Anyone know whats the music player like on the galaxy and is it much more hassle downloading podcasts? I take it the apps are much of a muchness with both.
if you sync everything through itunes such as music, podcasts, movies ect then iphone 4 is 100% the way to go, i cant advise you on what the galaxy is like as i dont have one and have never used one before. however although it may be a lot less you mention that the ipod is on its last legs, may be better off getting the iphone 4 and killing 2 birds with one stone. i imagine the galaxy has decent media quality on it. in terms of apps people argue both ways that apple is better or that android is better. you can find similar apps on both stores but personally i find that because apple requires apps to be approved by them it is better than the android open source market, i had a htc for a few months and i found going through the marketplace on android very frustrating and tedious as there is just way too much crap on it, anyone can put anything they like on it regardless of whether it is good or not whereas apple has a standard for the app store, you still get shit on the app store but not as much
I'm tempted to buy white housing parts. Anyone here converted the colour of there iP4?
nope, i heard of a guy doing it online and charging something like $100 for the conversion, was more if you didnt want him to return the old parts to you, i have spent enough on it and i dont want a white iphone that bad
Cheers Sparky, pretty much what i was thinking
