iPhone 3G Unlocked? Yessim!

iPhone 3G Unlocked? Yessim!

Hmm. YESSIM has claimed that they can unlock iPhone 3Gs using a YESSIM SIM card for all the unlocking purposes. They have video-proof complete with convoluted instructions and a dodgy FAQ on their website. The Sim Unlock was developed in Europe and requires a jailbroken iPhone 3G. Are we taking this with an ordinary grain of salt or a Mt. Everest sized one?

What raises TiPb's eyebrow is the fact that their website has common spelling and grammatical errors. Plus it seems like they're pimping their product more than showing the process. But hardware Sim Unlocks do seem to be from foreign countries and use some mysterious, voodoo magic to unlock the iPhone. So I guess if they're right, we can forgive them for everything.

White iPhones Cracking? Take a Look

White iPhones Cracking? Take a Look

So there have been some reports that the white iPhone 3G has been showing cracks in its plastic housing already. From the pictures shown, some look like it could be scratches while others look almost, definitively cracked. I knew that the plastic would not be as durable as the original iPhone's but cracks in the casing? That's a lot worse than I ever imagined.

Is this a case of internet propaganda or could this really be happening? Anyone with white iPhone 3Gs like to tell their side of the story? Source: Nowhereelse

iPhone Gaming: Carmack Gets Graphic, Torque Gets Ported, and NES Goes Tilt

First up, legendary id Software founder and Doom and Quake mastermind John Carmack spoke to Forbes about iPhone gaming:

"We wanted to do something for the iPhone, but we just didn't have the scheduling or the resources available. I really regret not having something at launch. We have a title we want to develop exclusively for iPhone. I'm not announcing anything specifically, but it would be a graphical tour de force."

AT&T's Hearing-Impared Plan Costs more on the iPhone 3G too

AT&T's Hearing-Impared Plan Costs more on the iPhone 3G too

AT&T has a plan developed specifically for the hearing impaired who'd like to own an iPhone: Unlimited SMS, Unlimited Data, Visual Voicemail, and 40 cents a minute for calls. A good deal all around for $40 bucks a month. Scratch that -- it's $50 now for iPhone 3G users, but like the standard plans, iPhone 2G users can still get the plan for ten bucks less. All you need to do to apply is fill out the requisite forms from AT&T. Also notable: corporate plans of the same clock in at $65, but hey, at least the company is paying that bill.

Palringo Now Available for iPhone: Multi-Client IM FTW!

Palringo Now Available for iPhone: Multi-Client IM FTW!

Folks who've transitioned over from Windows Mobile (or BlackBerry) to the iPhone (or folks who, like me, are dual-wielding) take heed: one of our favorite IM apps from those other platforms has finally made its way into the App Store. It's Palringo (iTunes Link) and it's free. Palringo is an instant messenger app that's able to talk to AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, etc. It will also let you send media files (like photos). There is one downside -- you do need to set up a Palringo account to get it all going, but for now at least, if you want multi-client IM, Palringo's your best option.

MobileMe: Losing Contacts, Lost Reviewers?

MobileMe: Losing Contacts, Lost Reviewers?

"Another day, another MobileMe problem" is rapidly becoming a -- very tired -- cliche. This time around its with contacts and calendars. Or more accurately -- without them. Yesterday TUAW covered how some users' data would disappear from their iPhone after syncing from MobileMe (to be clear, it would disappear from the iPhone but remain in MobileMe).

Late yesterday evening, Apple posted a status update addressing the issue:

Some MobileMe members may be unable to sync new, edited, or deleted contacts, calendars, and bookmarks over the air between computers and mobile devices (iPhone and iPod Touch). Service will be restored ASAP. We apologize for any inconvenience.

An hour or so later still, Apple updated again:

Apple identified and resolved an issue with MobileMe Sync on iPhone and iPod touch. Although no action is required for most members, some may need to reset their data from MobileMe to sync normally again.

Is it safe yet to call MobileMe the "rockiest" launch in Apple's history? Read on to find out why it just might be...

Lightning Review: Units

Lightning Review: Units

(cjvitek is back with a review of Units ($.99 at the iTunes Store), a straightforward unit conversion app. It's currently sitting pretty at #4 on the bestseller list, but does it belong? Read on to find out!)

On my old Treo, I had a great conversion program which I used frequently. When I switched to the iPhone 3G, I was hoping to find a similar program. The best I have found so far is "Units".

Units is a conversion program that allows you to convert currencies, length, area, temperature, energy units, volume, time, speed, and weight. It has a simple, straightforward interface. First you select the mode you want to convert (say, currency), then the "from" units, then the "to" units. You select these options be repeatedly tapping on the "mode", "from", and "to" buttons until you get the selection you want. Then, using the calculator style interface, you type in the number you want converted. While I haven't used the currency converter yet, the currency values are updated daily (automatically) or you can update them yourself manually.

Facebook on the iPhone: 1M Downloaded, "Connect" Service Launched

iPhone users sure love them some Facebook. In just two weeks following the launch of Apple's App Store, Facebook's Director of Mobile, Jed Stremel announced that the Facebook App for iPhone has been downloaded over 1,000,000 times. Whether those are unique downloads, and whether all downloaders are now using it consistently aren't known, but Facebook remains in the top-ten list for free apps and doesn't look to be going anywhere anytime soon.
