Found 24th May 2009
1. people tell me the headphones that come with the phone dont do it justice at all. What headphones have people purchased that they would suggest? how much were they ?

2. my 3g signal bar is currenttly fluctuating between 0 and 3 on a regular basis. is there any ways to improve signal strength? I've tried a software update, restore, reset and full battery charge but none have improved.

3. I've uploaded my mp3 collection to the phone via a program called sharepod. However every time Itunes loads up (which currently has no files) - it wipes the mp3s on my phone. How do I stop this ?

4. What applications/games do people give the thumbs up ?

5. The phone is 2nd hand. Can applecare be purchased on 2nd hand phones? Is there anyway to insure the phone if not ?


Thanks in advance

thanks 4 questions to go now lol

there is no applecare for iphones,only the standard 1 year warranty

ah right, i didnt know that.

That seems like an extremely poor service in my opinion. Surely anything with a retail value of £300+ should be deemed to last at least 3 years

Is there anyway to check the date purchased of a unit and how long is left on the warrenty ?

There are a few companies that offer after market insurance for iphones - starts at about £6 a month

Singal I would say was down to your area, all phones are different one may have full signal the other none, depends on build of phone etc, nothing you can do as far as Im aware

Headset that comes with it is pants, the only decent set I have seen are the V-moda ones, thye come with the built in button / mic - all other headsets don't have the button / mic

I currently have Goldrings GX200 using Comply foam tips which do an excellent job of insulating all other sound and have great bass but no mic so when the phone rings you have to unplug the headset

re apps, it's all down to what you want, most apps I find ares useless and novel so i would recommend jailbreaking so you can trial apps before you buy, there are also many decent apps on Cydia such as Instinctiv Shuffle, Categories, pdanet, xGPS, MMS, winterboard, aptbackup, fontswap, ibluetooth, status notifier to name a few, you can also customise the look once jailbroken

At the moment I have

App store apps, I currently have

Tiger Woods, Mobile Allowance, Tube Deluxe, F1, Skype, Sonic, iexpense, Vicinity, Shazaam, ITN News, ebay, Flixster, Night Stand, Wunder Radio,

Not really it's more what you do after that affects the phone i.e. you can run programs to run in the background which uses ram, can install keyboards and themes, some of which really do hog the systme (trial and error to find out which ones)

Just google Iphone insurance for the offers, I just checked and the cheapest is now £4.41 a month

Theme is i'elegance with some personal amendments!
