bbc iplayer problems=delete cache and cookies reset network settings and try changing your http proxy to auto that should sort it
This is how to solve the iPlayer and cookie problem on ziphoned Iphones.

Go to installer from the home screen.

Go to 'sources' on the bottom right.

Press 'edit' on the top right, press 'add' on the top left.

Then it'll pop up with a box for adding a weblink, add

appledailytimes.com/ins…ler

click ok and it'll refresh the resources. (all this has to be done with internet on)

Go to the Apple Daily Times section in 'Install' and the safari patch for the cookie issue will be in there.

That will solve any iplayer issues you have.

Enjoy people!

official email from o2 to all concerned
You won't enter the contract by purchasing an iPhone. If you want to unlock the iPhone, you've to be on a contract for 12 months or you can pay the termination charge. We'll then unlock your iPhone.

You need to purchase the iPhone by making a one off payment of #169.00 (8Gb) or #329.00 (16Gb) including VAT and then activate your O2 account using a PC/MAC via iTunes.

You'll be asked to choose one of three tariffs (#35.00, #45.00 or #75.00) and to sign up to an 18 month Pay Monthly consumer agreement exclusively with us when you activate your iPhone via iTunes

Out of Stock @ CPW online, and O2 online are listing it as 'no longer availble', so iphone 8gb is only availble in high street stores now

if this is true then the £100 O2 quidco cashback makes the iPhone potentially £69 plus a **** contract.
BTW still better buying one and unlocking it yourself

Where did this info come from?

you still have to get a contract!!!!!

Very hot if true! :?

Mmmmm, I can smell a new iphone update coming on!!

would like to know where did you get that from

you cant get the cashback unless u sign up the 18months contract

has this been substantiated yet or is it still rumours?
this obviously shows that with the purported 3g release in June, that apple have bigger memory phones to be released?

Is This True!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this has been confirmed just went into moorgate and the said its being dropped tommorrow god save quidco 69 squid i love it!

For me still too expensive for the phone when tied to a £35 a month contract but I suspect that some will take it up

For me it would be free + £35/month or £169 + £25/month contract

Apple are only doing this with 02 for two reasons

a) the sales are disappointing as the UK market is built on primarily giving the phone as part of the deal ( even new phones become such after a short while )

b) The "copy" phones are on the way such as sony xperia etc and apple are trying to get as much out of the situation as they can before future adjustments

A step in the right direction but probably not far enough ( and I have a ipod touch so not a applephob!)

I thought you dont have to be tied into a contract to buy one, if dont online at cpw and unlocked via ziphone??

i'm a total technophobe.. can someone tell me what 3g is please?

can anyone just confirm if you get quidco for real?

for all those people who took advantage of the £/$ exchange rate (me included) will prob have to sell at a loss with this announcement.

simple high speed internet on the move.:-D

any site offering cashback, or are they all only if you activate the phone?

but doesnt it have internet browsing on the iphone already???? sorry for being ffffick

Voted cold. It will never be a good deal unless it's free on the contracts offered.

Does this mean, i have to purchase a contract? If it is, then wth is the point? Also how long is this "offer" on for?

This isn't really a "deal" until tomorrow

:pirate:CJ:pirate:

thanks.. i may just indulge then.. why buy an i pod when you can have the whole phone, camera, internet and mp3 in one unit. heat and rep added

how can you vote cold? this phone can be unlocked to all networks with a few simple mouse clicks
this phone and interface blows away anything that is currently out there-
granted that you have to initially lay out for it, whereas most contracts you get the fone FOC, but, but, this is an iphone!

I bought on like 2weeks ago

isheep : )

am i missing something?
so how do u get out of buying the phone without paying for the contract?

o and do u not get the cashback if u dont have the contract with it?

the porter;1895672

nooooo buy it then ziphone it unlocked put what you want in it



looking at the site it says that you HAVE to have a contract with it??? i would just want to buy it and then get it unlocked.

Is there going to be a price drop for the ipod touch now then, because this is going to be a bargain considering the touch costs that much!!! WOW

nice, cant wait for the new one

hmm interesting, thats a decent price and i may now think about getting one.

£169 for an iphone and just unlock it an have it on pay an go, guess ill have to sell my phone now to raise the funds

i might have to invest in 1 then....if i unlock this on ziphone will it take my current simcard as its on 3 and they dont always work with many phones?

Would not have thought so, the main reason for the iPhone price drop is to clear stock as there are VERY strong rumprs on a new iPhone in June that will support 3g. Also the iPhone sales in Europe have been alot less than forecast so they are hopeing this will stimulate sales.

It's only an iPhone;-)

It's really not all that, unless you are a rabid Mac fanboy or distracted by bright colours.

o rite, i will have to look into it, unless anyone can try it form me and confirm this will work....please work!

Bit of a question for those that have unlocked it:

Is it possible to set the iphone to not connect via GPRS or edge - just with wifi?

I don't have any sort of unlimited data package on my current deal and wouldn't want to rack up huge bills. I'd jsut want to browse etc when I'm using free wifi.

For those people who just bought one don't you get distance selling protection, or in case of a contract don't you gat a 14 day cooling off period ?

just listed my iphone on ebay................hopefully can still flog it for 250+

im on a 3 contract, am i right into saying this sim will not work in the iphone once its jailbroken?
