Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Not a problem affecting me, but for those of you struggling with the dictionary in a language other than english, you may want to look at this.

Workaround.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Here's a tip for y'all: with the new 2.1 firmware, you can now triple-click the mic-clicker to go to the previous track, as was advertised with the new in-ear headphones.

This makes me hopeful for the future of the new volume buttons as well.

If anyone gets the new headphones a review would be nice, please.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

They are "coming soon", and no-one, not even high profile tech sites, have tried them, or have had the iPhone compatibility questioned answered for that matter.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

Apple just announced a product recall for their power adapters, it doesn't affect buyers from Switzerland, but if you bought your iPhone, or a spare power adapter, in the the US, Canada, Mexico or some Latin states, it may affect you.

And if you use iTunes to deliver the music at your party, you can control it with the Remote app on the phone, thus guaranteeing it even more attention!

Remote, and some remotely connected speakers with Airport, makes for a fantastic app. My iTunes collection sits in the study, and is beamed to my living room (soon bedroom too), where I can control it all with the iPhone, thus turning me into the ultimate couch potato.

?? You have the iPod function, syncing should put your music on automatically, unless you have more music than the phone can handle, in which case it would have asked you to create a playlist.

Look under the syncing options, you can choose which playlists should sync, I have one called "Cyrus's iPod Selection".

That iTunes icon is for the iTunes store, to buy music (I personaly wouldn't recomend it, unless it's iTunes plus). It's not the same as the iPod funtionality, which is to play music, and should be the icon in the bottom right.

That weird popup with the funny characters are the available wireless networks. Do you have you're own wireless network? If not, you need to pick one without the little padlock symbol.

Edit : You need to go into iTunes on the machine you sync with, and check the syncing options, there should be a tab for music, you probably just don't have it turned on.

Do you have wireless at home? If so, each wireless network has a name and a password. You have to provide the name of your own wireless network, and the password to access it, the iPhone will remember and automatically connect whenever it finds it.

Just to be clear though, do you want to play the music you have in your iTunes collection at home, or do you want to buy music from the iTunes store?

I'm looking to set that up in the spare room at the moment - any particular speakers you would recommend? (Sorry, a bit off-topic )

I plugged it into the Aux of my Hi-Fi. Don't know what to get for the bedroom yet. Really depends on how much you want to spend!
