Well my wife ordered me the iPhone 4 for my birhtday. It should be here in the middle of July.
Trav - yes you do need to jailbreak the iPhone but it's a simple literally two minute process(that includes the time it takes to download the software) and after that the possibilities are limitless
my otterbox case for my iPhone makes mine virtually waterproof and damage proof. I've already dropped it, dropped hammers and wrenches on it and not a scratch
i know how to do it.. i did it a bunch. The point is that i should not have to jailbrake it to get some of the simple things like tethering. And the reason why ? its not hardware or software its all because Steve Jobs dont think it should have it... I am sorry but i am not down with any product that is SOOOOOO controlled by 1 guy and what he thinks is moraly right or wrong. I paid for the phone so i should be able to do what i want with it without voiding my warranty.
what is tethering
its the ablitly to use your phones 3g connection to access internet on a pc or laptop.
I know lots of people who NEED this option for work. They all said they would like an iPhone but cant get one cause of this and those people also do not want and will not hack things.
i have to admit they are adding some things the old ones should have already had like tethering .. even if you do have to pay for it... and multitasking but still ... they did not engineer this phone very well at all.. check this out
These phones are so over hyped... i admit i fell into the hype i had the first iPhone and the 2nd iPhone as well but they were my first ever "smart" phones ... now that i have got something different i am noticing how shitty they really are... I know nothing i say or post here will change your minds but someday you will notice what im talking about.
