Some iPhone 3G S Smartphones Overheating

Apple's iPhone 3G S takes the heat

Apple boldly advertises the slogan "It just works", but Apple has its share of issues just like any other tech company. Among the recent problems included Mac display issues (which have been ongoing for over a year) and iPhone signal issues (also a year old problem).

Now another familiar problem has been reported. Apple's hot new iPhone is not just getting hot figuratively, it's getting hot literally. Reports of Apple's handsets turning toasty and colorizing from white to a toasty brown or rosy pink have been widely reported.

Reportedly, the phones are more likely to overheat when playing games or using the GPS. The iPhone 3G S packs a much faster CPU and graphics processor than its predecessor, a likely source of the heating issues. However, Apple thus far has denied the reports and refused to comment that there is a problem with the handsets.

Apple's IPhone 3GS Suffers More Signal Problems

Many users are reporting signal oddities with the new iPhone 3GS

Apple's problems, like history, seem to have a way of repeating themself. The iPhone 3G S launch, like the 3G launch of a year before brought more crashed servers and more unhappy customers. And just this last week Mac Pro users began to experience display problems with their new computers, echoing problems that have been reported for a couple years in various models. Now iPhone users are reporting reception and signal problems that echo the iPhone 3G's problems last year that were eventually traced to/blamed on faulty chipset firmware.

MacWorld's Ted Landau reports that his own research with his 3G and 3G S phones revealed that the 3G S is perplexing switching to the slower EDGE networks, while the iPhone 3G shows no problems accessing the faster 3G networks.

Apple claims that this actually shows that its hardware is working better. Writes Mr. Landau, "Checking online, I found others reporting a similar situation. So I contacted Apple Support for an explanation. They said they were familiar with this matter and that there was nothing wrong. At least not with my iPhone 3GS. According to Apple, the software behind the status bar on an iPhone 3GS does a better job of showing when a switch from 3G to EDGE has occurred than does the comparable software on an iPhone 3G."

Apple Support claims that increased traffic is to blame for the 3G S switching to EDGE when the 3G has a high (four or five bar) signal strength. Apple also claims that it switches users to EDGE first who have been connected to 3G for the longest.

Sexy iGirl iPhone App Funds a Startup

The true story of how one goofball iPhone app saved a company and funded a new MMO game.

You can't really take iGirl seriously. It's a goofy (with an emphasis on sad and borderline creepy) iPhone app featuring a pasty-looking, scantily-clad virtual girlie that you can customize according to your...ahem...interests. "We get e-mail complaints from conservatives that think [iGirl] is too perverted while kids complain that there's no nudity," says Resistor Productions CEO, Toby Battan. But that 99-cent joke helped kick-start a company and fund a new MMO (massively multiplayer online) fighting game, Disciple.

In the past, I've spoken with a homebrew coder who built games on the side, but Battan's story is a little different. He's a serial entrepreneur who got tired of courting venture capitalists in pursuit of his browser-based fantasy fighter (and I'll get to that game in a few seconds, promise). "I loathed having to go around to VCs asking for money," says Battan.

Obviously the economy is hurting and people aren't as quick to part with piles of cash as they once were, but he paints a funny scenario: "It used to be that they'd invest if they saw a good plan on paper. Now VCs want to see a company that's profitable before they invest.... Why would I come back when I'm already profitable?" In the end, it's a painful six-month-plus process just to get money with a whole bunch of strings attached.

Developers Can Make Money from Free iPhone Apps

How does an iPhone application developer make money when giving away a free app? Well, before today, they mostly relied on users upgrading to a version of the app with more features–and a price tag. Now they have a new beta program from Google to test.

Google AdSense for Mobile Applications just launched and application developers–for either iPhone or Android–can apply to join. Already onboard are Backgrounds, Sega, Shazam, and Urbanspoon. The latter shares its story on using AdSense in its iPhone app in the video below.

Apple Makes Over $400 Profit per 16 GB IPhone, $500 per 32 GB Model

Apple is making a handsome profit on its new phone

Apple has reportedly the world's strongest brand image, and yet manages to maintain some of the industry's largest profit margins, a rare achievement. Now that the iPhone bill of materials (BOM) for the iPhone 3G S has been divined thanks to an iSuppli tear down, it appears that Apple has another business success story on its hands with the iPhone 3G S.

The hot new phone's components cost $172.46, for the 16 GB model, according to Andrew Rassweiler, director and principal analyst, teardown services, for iSuppli. The most expensive component is the 16 GB of NAND flash memory, produced by Toshiba and estimated to cost $24/unit. Least expensive is the audio codec chip, which costs a mere $1.15/unit, produced by Cirrus Logic.

The phone costs approximately $6.50 to assemble, bringing the estimate cost to $178.96/phone.

The 16 GB iPhone 3G S costs $599.99 for returning customers with less than a year on their contract, and as little as $199.99 for new customer or returning customers with 2 years on their contract. However, according to reports, Apple sells the iPhones to AT&T at approximately $600 per phone, and the carrier provides the discount. Apple is also rumored to get a small cut of the subscription fees.

States Mr. Rassweiller, "Although the retail price of the 16GB iPhone 3GS is $199, the same as for the 8GB version of the original iPhone 3G, the actual price of the phone paid by the service provider is considerably higher, reflecting the common wireless industry practice of subsidizing the upfront cost of a mobile phone and then making a profit on subscriptions."

Adult IPhone Apps Approved for the First Time, Then Yanked

Censorship at Apple's App Store may finally be letting up

It took the Baby Boom generation to revolutionize America's views on sexuality, and it looks like it took three iPhone generations to accomplish a similar transformation. In what some are hailing as the end of Apple App Store censorship, Apple has allowed a vibrator app and a pornographic app to enter the holy ground of its App Store.

Previous apps had offered softer content, showing somewhat provocative pictures of models in swimsuits. The new app, though is the first to show nudity. It definitely falls under the NSFW category.

The app is rate 17+ for "frequent/intense sexual content or nudity" and "frequent/intense mature/suggestive theme". According to the developer, "We uploaded nude topless pics today. This is the first app to have nudity."

Apple decided to tolerate the new apps, reportedly, due to the new parental controls in the iPhone OS v3.0. With the entrance of such apps into the App Store, many are predicting that Apple's censorship of such "offensive" adult applications such as the Me-So-Holy app and the South Park app will be forced to end.

Update 1 (Thu Jun 25, 1:23 PM): It appears that Apple may have reversed its decision after the wave of popularity, though no official word has come yet. The app is currently not available in the app store, according to users.

Update 2 (Thu Jun 25, 1:30 PM): The developer's webpage states that the App wasn't whacked by Apple, but rather was temporarily taken down as the overwhelming popularity placing too much strain on the image server. They promise the app will pop back up soon, complete with nudity.

iPhone Hack Enables MMS on iPhone OS 3.0

The non-availability of tethering and MMS features in the U.S at the time of the launch of iPhone OS 3.0 was probably the most disappointing news that was announced at the WWDC 2009 Keynote address.

Some folks had figured out a simple hack to enable tethering on iPhone OS 3.0 without the need to jailbreak their iPhone.

In case you didn't know, Aaron Krill over at Krillr.com has also figured out a way to enable MMS on iPhone OS 3.0.

Before you start, you need the following things:

  • Modified version of ATT_US.ipcc which can be download from this link.
  • iPhone running iPhone OS 3.0
  • iTunes 8.2
  • Another AT&T Phone (not an iPhone)

You then need to enable IPCC updates for iTunes 8.2 and copy the IPCC file to your iPhone.

Can you manage the iPhone like a BlackBerry?

The iPhone OS 3.0 adds improved support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync policies

Users love the iPhone, but IT does not. The biggest complaints: The iPhone can't be managed for security and access policies like a BlackBerry can. Businesses can buy a BlackBerry Enterprise Server or Motorola Good for Enterprise server to manage user profiles over the air, ensuring that users conform to password policies, encryption policies, app-installation restrictions, and so on, as well as have their e-mail, VPN, and other settings preconfigured to reduce hands-on deployment effort.

For some time now, Apple's offered its free iPhone Configuration Utility for Windows and Mac that lets IT set up and install configuration profiles on iPhones in BlackBerry-like breadth. But it doesn't provide the over-the-air reach, the granularity of control, or the visibility that BlackBerry Enterprise Server offers. Lacking these key needs of larger businesses, iPhone Configuration Utility has been dismissed as a toy application.

Fandango’s iPhone App a HUGE Hit - More than 1 Million Downloads in First 90 Days

TransformersLos Angeles, CA –(RPRN) 6/24/2009- Fandango’s application for movie showtimes, ticketing and information on the Apple iPhone and iPod touch has been downloaded more than 1.3 million times since its launch on March 13, 2009. With Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opening tonight at midnight and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opening July 15, Fandango’s popular application with mobile moviegoers is sure to continue its amazing growth.

The Fandango iPhone app rocketed to #1 among free entertainment applications in Apple’s App Store. The app has consistently been in the Top 25 in that category since its launch, and has ranked as high as #8 among all free iPhone and iPod touch applications overall.

Due to popular demand, a new and improved version is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch, offering Fandango users greater convenience via the ability to access their online accounts from the app.

Fandango’s iPhone app is also proving to be a popular platform for marketers looking to reach tech-savvy entertainment enthusiasts.

“We are thrilled to work with Apple to make moviegoing easy and convenient for people on the go,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer of Fandango. “With so many highly anticipated films out this summer, we expect downloads to continue at a very brisk pace.”

iTrivia: Five free iPhone/iPod apps to know your facts

If you're a trivia addict and have some time you need to kill, the App Store at Apple has more than enough trivia apps to meet your needs. Most are reasonably priced at around 99 cents to $1.99 and there are lots of categories including science, space and the United States.

If you're type who just likes random trivia, there are also several free apps that provide a nice range of trivia. I've listed them in order of what I think are the best to the worst. If you like to fill your iPhone and iPod Touch, then get them all. If you're just looking for one, this may help you pick the one that will make you happy.

FACTS
Mark Montecalvo

PROS: This was my favorite of the apps based on the fact that it separates its trivia into nine categories, so you can choose depending on what you're in the mood for. It has a smaller font, but is still easy to read. One button let's you choose if you want to move in sequence or randomly. Moving to the next fact only takes a tap of the picture on the screen.

CONS: The pictures take up half the screen, sacrificing the chance to make the words larger and they are pointless since they never relate to the trivia. A fact about Ewan McGregor was accompanied by a picture of a baby. That same baby also appears on other facts. If the app dropped the pictures and bumped up the font size, it would be perfect.

There are two apps in the store named Facts. This one has a button with a light bulb in in.

CRAZY FACTS

Charles Jamerlan

PROS: 6,001 facts that each have a number, so you know how far you've progressed through the list. This app also allows you to save your favorites to look back or share with others. It has a fairly large font that isn't too difficult to read. Two buttons make it easy to move forward and backward through the trivia and you also have the option to go through them randomly.

CONS: Once you hit the "Random" button, you have no hope back of getting to a specific fact. You have to keep hitting random until you get near or go forward or backward from there. Facts are written on a chalkboard graphic, so it has a matching font. If you're opposed to comic-book type fonts, you won't like this.

An ad-free version is available for 99 cents. The paid version is also updated with more facts to take you beyond the 6,001 mark.

UltraSn0w: Software method to Unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 Released

The iPhone Dev Team has released their much awaited software method called Ultrasn0w to unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0.

It's also makes it the world's first software solution to unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0.

The iPhone Dev Team had released their PwnageTool 3.0 for Mac on June 19 to jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 and then followed it up by releasing Redsn0w for both Mac and Windows users on June 20 to jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0.

PwnageTool and Redsn0w can also be used to unlock iPhone 2G.

They have just released their much awaited software method called Ultrasn0w to unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 which can be installed via Cydia or Icy.

Dev Team has published the following instructions:
  1. Ensure you have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0.
  2. Jailbreak your iPhone 3G using redsn0w or PwnageTool (this will also install Cydia/Icy).
  3. Run Cydia or Icy.
  4. Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia or Icy. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
  5. Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w.
  6. Reboot your iPhone 3G.
  7. T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w.
Please note that UltraSn0w currently does not unlock Apple's new iPhone 3GS.

But please proceed with caution and don't forget to tell us if you were able to successfully unlock your iPhone 3G.

Mobile Flash 10 Coming to Smart Phones in October, Except For IPhone

Still no support for the iPhone coming

Apple single handedly reinvigorated the smartphone industry and spawned a plethora of touch capable devices when it launched the iPhone. Since the original iPhone debuted, Apple has offered two more updated models of the device with the 3GS hitting the market last week.

One of the major missing pieces in the iPhone for many users is the ability to run Adobe Flash technology. iPhone owners have been crying for Flash support since the iPhone launched and still there is no version of Flash for the iPhone.

Adobe's CEO Shantanu Naraye announced at an investors conference that the next version of Flash will be Flash 10 beta and it will hit in early October. The new beta version will support almost every smartphone platform out there including Android, webOS, Windows Mobile, and Symbian. Notice the lack of iPhone support.

The availability of the beta coincides with the Adobe Max conference. The news is important for the newer Android and webOS devices that have lacked a good Flash player so far. Symbian and Windows mobile have been able to play Flash content for a while.

Adobe doesn't mention Flash support for the iPhone at all. With all the hubbub about Flash on the iPhone, the odds of something of that magnitude being pre announced are slim though. That sort of announcement is something that would take place at a press conference most likely.

Customers Use New IPhone Feature to Locate and Confront Crooks

Apple scores a win with its latest innovation

The iPhone OS v3.0 officially launched last week. Among the many improvements was beefed up security. Along with encryption and a remote wipe option, the phone features a promising security tool called "Find my iPhone" that lets users track their lost iPhone and potentially confront the crook or crooks who took it.

The key weakness to the feature (and the remote wipe) is that it can be easily disabled by removing the SIM card, if the iPhone thief is that clever. However, as the average episode of Cops shows you, many criminals are less than clever.

Already reports have emerged of iPhone users recovering their lost phones with the feature. A LiveJournal user named Kevin (LJ s/n happywaffle) posted a blog bragging of such a confrontation. He writes:
Last night, after seeing Second City improv, we ate at a pleasantly sketchy dive bar in uptown Chicago, where the food was mediocre and the characters were questionable. I definitely had my iPhone while at our table, and I definitely did NOT have it (whoops!) when we were 100 feet down the street.

I raced back into the bar, not even particularly concerned, but it was gone like baby. In less than five minutes, with very few people in the small place, my beloved JesusPhone had managed to vanish into a black hole. Our waitress was sympathetic, and I left a number, but I was immediately glum about my prospects of seeing it again.

Turn Your iPhone Photos Into Postcards With HazelMail

I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do when I’m traveling is track down a post office so I can send family and friends postcards. I often buy postcards that I intend to mail, but I’m always trying to squeeze so many things into my trip that I never end up sending them. So I decided to try HazelMail, a new, free iPhone application that turns your iPhone photos into personalized postcards and even mails them for you, too. My verdict: It’s a fun and easy — but you might get home before your postcard reaches its destination.

The application lets you upload photos already in your iPhone photo library or new ones — your first postcard is free, each one after that is $1. HazelMail doesn’t give you sample pictures to send, so you have to use your own. I chose to send a pic I’d taken of the San Francisco Bay and mail it from SF to family down in nearby San Jose, Calif. Once I uploaded my photo, I edited it by changing its width and rotating it horizontally, which took a couple seconds and definitely made it look better (The simple click-and-capture function on the iPhone camera doesn’t take perfect photos). Then I typed up a short message to my family and clicked send.

They got it a full seven days later — not terribly impressive, given that the same postcard would have been there as early as the next day had I mailed it myself. HazelMail said it uses a global network of printers in North America, South America, Europe and Asia to print and mail the postcard from a location that’s closest to the recipient. My postcard, however, was mailed from Phoenix.

Has anyone else tried the HazelMail app? If so, please share your experience in the comments section.

iPhone Hack: Enable Free iPhone Tethering On Any Carrier

Just a few hours after Apple released firmware 3.0 to the public, some smart guy already figured out a way to hack the iPhone to allow free tethering on most carriers, including AT&T. What’s even better about this hack is that you don’t have to jailbreak your iPhone.

How to enable free tethering on iPhone 3.0?

1. On your iPhone, launch Safari

2. Go to the following website: http://help.benm.at/tethering.php

3. Find your country, select your provider, and tap “download”.

4. Go to Settings > General > Network > Internet Tethering Bluetooth or USB

5. Done!

Is this legal? Well, not really… I suggest you don’t tether your iPhone too much using this hack as carriers have a way to find out and can very well overcharge you or simply disconnect you, as UK carrier 02 reportedly said it would:

Under those terms we reserve the right to charge customers making modem use of their iPhone or disconnect them.

Use with caution…

Live blog: iPhone 3GS launch day

The rolling rollout of the iPhone 3G S is under way. Apple's latest iPhone has been going on sale Friday at 7 a.m. local time in each time zone where it's available.

We've got a team of people covering the launch. In the East, CNET News' Caroline McCarthy and Marguerite Reardon are reporting live Apple and AT&T stores in Manhattan. Out west, Erica Ogg, Josh Lowensohn, and James Martin are keeping tabs on iPhone sales in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Are people lining up the way they have for past iPhone launches? Is the phone everything they expected it to be? Does it really take just 10 to 15 minutes to get set up? Tune in and find out as the day goes along.

T minus 3 hours

(Credit: Caroline McCarthy/CNET)

McCarthy, 4:14 a.m. EDT at the 5th Avenue Apple Store: Things are awfully quiet with less than three hours to go before the iPhone 3G S launch, even at the flagship Apple Store on 5th Avenue and 58th St. As of 4 a.m. there were only about 20 people in line: almost exclusively young and male. The store, normally open 24/7, was closed at midnight in preparation.

Engadget reported Thursday that a group of college students had shown up with 24 hours to go, but it doesn't sound like they had much competition for a while. This is reportedly one of the coldest and wettest Junes on record in New York, so the weather may have deterred many--as well as the mess that ensued last year when AT&T activation took up to an hour. For now, at least, the weather is holding up: it's chilly and foggy, but no rain.

What would you do for a free iPhone 3GS?

Free iPhone 3GS

Would you be willing to sacrifice this cute little puppy for an iPhone 3G S? Or de-friend your closest friends and family on Facebook, for two years?

Given that today was iPhone 3G S review mania day, I’ve given up all hope of publishing anything meaningful today on ZDNet for fears of it being buried in the cumulative iPile. Apple product releases are like the Britney Spears or the Paris Hiltons of the tech reporting industry, the irrational obsession with them seems to monopolize virtually all the screen space on the various tech news outlets when some new development or enhancement comes along.

So rather than beating them, or resigning not to post anything at all, I’ve decided to join them. That being said I think it’s a given that people LOVE iPhones. But how much?

YouMail’s free iPhone app adds to Apple’s voicemail

youmail

Apple’s built-in voicemail app gets raves for allowing users to pick and choose messages from a list, like email rather than being forced to listen to them in order like a 1980’s tape-cassette answering machine. But there are extra steps still to be taken to make voicemail as powerful as email.

Prediction: Google announces Twitter acquisition?

YouMail’s free iPhone app is, business-wise, a loss leader for the company’s transcription service, a subscription that starts at $3.99 a month. The app ties into YouMail’s Web-based service, which allows users to manage their voicemail from a browser.

I caught YouMail CEO Alex Quilici on the phone Tuesday. A few minutes after we got off the phone, he sent me a transcription of our talk. Clever.

Q: How is YouMail different from what iPhone offers?

A: With iPhone, the basic idea is that you can see who calls and pick what voicemail you play and in what order. YouMail has provided users with the ability to unlock voicemail and give you more choice – play or read it, have transcription embedded in app – very useful in meeting, etc.

Q: Is transcription a paid feature?

A: Yes. If you want to be able to read your voicemail, transcription is a premium service.

Q: What are the biggest differentiators between YouMail’s app and what iPhone offers:

A: Three big differentiators:

Transcription. We offer users the ability to read their voicemails.

Forward your voicemail to anyone. We’ve unlocked voicemail so you can forward it to anyone you want – you can click forward and it generates a URL for voicemail that you can email, post or do whatever – completely unlocked from carrier – do whatever you want with the voicemail.

Status greetings. With one click, you can change your greeting to let callers know you are in a meeting, on a plane or out surfing. Select your own personal recorded greeting or select from YouMail’s massive library of pre-recorded greetings.

Finally, it’s important to note that YouMail’s Visual Voicemail Plus app is a small part of the YouMail desktop online service. If you are at your PC, you can pick up a voicemail and surf for greetings on the computer. The app is simply a convenient entry point for the other functionalities. Standard iPhone voicemail does not offer this.

Easy iPhone Tethering for AT&T users

If your iPhone is running 3.0, it’s very easy to enable internet tethering on AT&T’s network with no ugly hacks. First you’ll need to download this carrier settings file from gizmodo.

Next, quit iTunes and enter the following command in terminal:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

Contrary to many articles, you don’t need to install a pre-release version of iTunes.

When you restart iTunes, connect your iPhone and you’ll be able to option-click the Restore button to choose the .ipcc file in that disk image. Rather than doing a full restore of your iPhone, it will simply update the carrier settings. If the update is successful, the Network page under general settings will show an Internet Tethering option.

iPhone Tethering!

NEW iPhone 3.0 Firmware is out! Here is the review

Apple's first-generation iPhone OS was revolutionary. Its second-generation version introduced iPhone and iPod touch users to the App Store, which unquestionably was a much bigger hit than even Apple expected, as well as adding Microsoft Exchange support for enterprise users. By comparison, the brand new iPhone OS 3.0 doesn't initially seem to have a single home run feature -- many users will remember it as a consistent base hitter, or "the version that should have shipped with the first iPhone" -- but it actually packs extremely significant under-the-hood improvements, some of which won't be fully appreciated for weeks or months to come.



We’re highlighting many of iPhone OS 3.0’s new features in depth through two extensive iLounge articles—the Complete Guide to iPhone OS 3.0, and Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iPhone 3.0—so we’re not going to rehash their content all here. Instead, this review looks at the 10 key changes iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod touch users can expect from iPhone OS 3.0, as well as issuing a recommendation to iPod touch owners regarding its current value for Apple’s $10 asking price; iPhone and iPhone 3G users will get the new OS for free and thus have little reason to skip it. We also note iPhone 3G S-only features at the bottom of this review; though they’re implemented in software, they will be discussed in our separate iPhone 3G S hardware review since they’re specific to that device.

Please note that the list below is not in rank order; it is merely designed to highlight features of special interest to our editors and readership.

1. Spotlight and Search

Though the iPhone’s Home screen remains virtually untouched from earlier versions of the OS, a tiny magnifying glass option at the bottom of the screen clues you in to a new screen that sits off to the left of the main page: swipe over to it and you activate Spotlight, a feature that can search your iPhone’s database—everything from e-mail headers to apps to iPod media—for words you enter into a search field. Spotlight works quickly to show you multiple types of content that are all available to you from a single touch of any of the listing buttons; you can limit the parts of the device it searches using Settings.
