TmoNews is reporting that some unlocked iPhone users may be picking up T-Mobile's 3G network in small areas of the Pacific Northwest -- specifically limited pockets in Nevada, Utah and California -- due to spectrum reallocation under the 1900MHz band.
Most unlocked iPhone users are relegated to 2G due to most of the T-Mobile 3G network running on the AWS spectrum of 1700MHz/2100MHz. We're not exactly sure what they're reallocating the spectrum for, however, multiple reports have surfaced from Howard Forums detailing a jump in speeds and, more specifically, the 3G network indicator popping up in the statusbar on their unlocked iPhone.
Famous Chronic Dev-Team member, pod2g, has confirmed that his untethered jailbreak is working on pretty much all devices with an Apple A4 system-on-a-chip running iOS 5.0.1. On top of A4 devices, he's also got an untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3.3 on the AppleTV 2 working.
If you shattered the glass on your iPhone 3G or 3GS, a screen replacement is a relatively easy repair to perform. You'll just need a few tools and a new digitizer assembly to turn your broken iPhone 3G or 3GS from broken to good as new.
According to industry sources, the ever popular iPhone 3GS is set to hit manufacturing quantities of over two million units in the final quarter of 2011. The reason for the huge numbers is apparently down to Apple’s increasing penetration into the entry level smartphone market.
Fairly or unfairly, Google's Android often gets knocked for having a lagging or stuttering user interface when compared to Apple's iOS on iPhone and iPad. TiPb's previously guessed that this stemmed from very early architectural decisions made by Apple, who had a full screen, multi-touch UI -- albeit it a highly limited one -- in mind from the outset, as opposed to Google who originally had Android set up as a BlackBerry, Windows Mobile Standard, and Nokia competitor that had no need for high performance, sophisticated UI rendering.
If you've updated your iPhone 3GS to iOS 5 or 5.0.1 and lost your unlock we can help you get it back. The actual jailbreak will be tethered but you'll still be able to unlock and continue using your device in the mean time until an untethered jailbreak solution is released. iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users should steer clear of this as it will not work.
If you're currently running iOS 5.0.1, you can jailbreak via RedSn0w 0.9.9b8. This one is also tethered like the previous beta versions of RedSn0w for iOS 5. It's also worth noting that unlockers should stay away from this one unless they're okay with being tethered. iPhone 4 users should stay away from any newer stock iOS firmware versions altogether in order to preserve their baseband.
A bug has apparently been discovered in iOS 5 that allows a way to carrier unlock the AT&T version of the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS without the need to jailbreak or alter any hardware. The unlock will of course only allow you to use your iPhone on the T-Mobile network with Edge data speeds in the US however this is still a popular avenue for many iPhone users. If you want to try it, you will need a T-Mobile MicroSIM card or cut one down to the same size as a MicroSIM and follow the steps below:-
Thanks to chpwn and Steve Stroughton-Smith, Ryan Petrich has successfully shown off a proof-of-concept Siri port on iPhone 3GS. It doesn't work as well as the iPhone 4 port, mind you, but that's easily overshadowed by the sheer coolness factor.
No word on how or when, if ever, this will come to an iPhone 3GS near you. Whether due to beta-status, server load, Nuance licensing restrictions, or simple product differentiation, Apple has chosen to keep Siri exclusive to the iPhone 4S
