2G vs. 3G

Is the 3G signal selectable or will it ALWAYS jump to the 3G. I stopped using 3G phones for this reason a few yrs ago. I would constantly have 0-1 bars of 3G and my other phones would have 5 bars edges(2G)..... Any help here would be appreciated as I really want the iPhone!

How I got mms working

I'm still on 3.0.1 cause 3.1 isn't jailbroken. U have yo google it but there is a carrier bundle u have to update, it changes AT&T from 4.0 to 5.0. I did this a while ago and I'm not home so I don't have specifics, but that's how I got the mms feature available, but it didn't work till they released 3.1. I hope this helps

iPhone 3.1 finally announced.

AT&T got quite some heat to not support MMS when the iPhone 3.0 OS got released back in June. Now AT&T officially announced this week to launch MMS for the iPhone on September 25th.
You actually need to update you iPhone as the MMS feature will get enabled through it. The update will be released on September 25th.
AT&T is defending the delay that they needed to prepare the infrastructure to handle the gazillions of MMS you will send from your iPhone.
If the iPhone software update is only AT&T specific or rolled up in the upcoming iPhone 3.1 release is not clear yet. »

iPhone 3.1 released!

iPhone 3.1 firmware is officially out! Check iTunes for the update for iPhone and iPod touch. Mms is still planned to be available on September 25th 2009 via AT&T for those of us STILL waiting. If you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch be aware that you will remove the jailbreak by updating. You may not be able to jailbreak 3.1 since apple is removing the ability to downgrade to previous firmware which is part of the jailbreak process.

Yelp! app Augmented Reality

So apparently the latest update of the Yelp app included a hidden feature for those with the iPhone 3GS.
When you open the app, and shake your iPhone 3 times in secession, an icon will appear in the top right corner of the app. when you touch the icon ,called monocle, your iphone camera will activate. using the compass of the iphone, the Yelp app will show you what restaruants your looking at and whats around u and in what direction.

I have the yelp app but cant get this to work, does anyone know what version of yelp has this feature? i have version 3.0

any help would be great, it sounds so cool but IMO frustrated cuz i cant get it to work. thanks

Is this phone worth switching from Verizon?

For those of you who have switched from Verizon to AT&T for this phone, is it worth it? I am in the Atlanta area. Thank you.

unlock iphone 3gs

Two questions:
1. By jailbreaking & unlocking the iphone 3gs will I be able to use internet with T-mobile? I'm in an edge area with T-mobile, but they will be turning on 3g next month. Will I get 3g speed?
2. If I get this setup with T-mobile can I just use the $10 data plan they have or do I have to pay for the smartphone data plan. Thanks for any help!!!

Iphone contact list

Some of my contacts have a map (contact address) in the location where the photo is supposed to go. How did I do that so I can do it for other contacts, it's driving me nuts not to be able to do it at will.

SIM card question

This may be a stupid question, but I heard the sim card in the 3gs gets registered to the phone. Will that keep it from working in other ATT phones?
