I know this will sound funny after I have complained Appletards not fixing the sms exploit BUT Downloading whole 3.0.1, restoring then Jailbreaking with 3.0 and performing cydia upgrades, then personalizing the phone, adding applications all over, customizing ringtones and music is too much hassle for me to do for two phones now. I mean who is going to send 500 text messages to me to crash my stupid phones, I barely use them and only my close friends have my new numbers plus I don't have that much of a jerk friends or enemies. So until a worth for it update, it is a pass from lazy me.
PS: Title is not a challange it is an actual question
Since I have been using my SIP and VoIP integrated Nokia my sister got jealous and wanted to use (my old) her new iphone as an internet phone as well. I have installed Fringe for SIP and Skype just to face that you can only use them if you are connected to WiFi.. well that sucks!
As you all know by now, Fring has made it’s way onto the AppStore two days ago. The big limitation that most of us found out is that it’s main functions of interest that made it stand out of the crowd, it’s VOIP capabilities, could only be accessed using Wifi. Most operators would very much prefer not giving the opportunity to its users to get a hand on VOIP Apps over their network. Why? They might lose money.
Well sorry for them since there’s now a way to Patch Fring so it can be used over the 3G or EDGE networks that’s been explained in detail on Fring’s message board.
His way will not work and SSH way is tooo long.
So here is my way.
- Download the patched Fring from http://www.iphonetechzone.com/2008/10/a-patch-released-to-use-fring-over-3g-networks/
- Have or Install AppSync 3.0 for iphone OS 3.0
- Sync with iTunes
you are set to go Well of course quality and delay depends on your network speed. In my test over vodafone 3G UK network with Iphone 3G, I had received good results with skype.. Not much delay or noise at all, and btw I live in a crappy reception zone.
Finally it made it through. Agile is on the way also

Lots of you already know about xGPS but this post is for newbies. xGPS is the "currently" only "not apple supported" navigation solution for Iphone. As usual of crappy apple, device has GPS and google maps but no navigation!! And does not work without internet connection! What is the point of having a GPS in the device some really wonders.
Anyhow Tomtom is making a satnav application for Iphone but of course like Adobe making flash player, it is still making... and still will be making I guess. Plus you will need to buy Tomtom deck and software inorder to use it.
Fortunately we have xGPS. Lets go with the xGPS in short bullet features.
- You need a jailbroken phone to use it
- It is FREE!
- It supports offline usage also meaning you do not need to be connected to the internet
- It is pretty accurate ( not as much as commercial SatNavs cos apple's internal GPS sucks like all of its features)
- You can also use it with external Iphone GPS mods and casings.
- You can download maps from google, meaning you are uptodate with free updates and do not need any map packs.
- Supports routing, rerouting, zooming, searching, history
- Provides graphical interface with voice instructions (only in english I guess)
- It also comes with a manager so you can download and manage maps from your pc to iphone wirelessly.
- Track your positions and create roadmaps
- It is just great for you in an unknown city
