Maybe this isn't the venue to ask...nor is it appropriate...nor does anyone want to answer this; but...how do you unlock an I-Phone, change carriers, and what about continuing Apple service? I assume that would void any warranties. Has anyone done this?

Not iPhone app(s) related, but nice tip for Airstream owners that want to play their music inside their AS.

This weekend I tried my FM adapter inside my AS, and worked beautifully. All you need is to tune your AS stereo to the freq of the adapter and start enjoying iPhone/iPod music.


Happy trails at the tune of your favorite track!

Communism?

I would characterize it as monopolistic capitalism. Verizon might be even worse. $300 plus smart phone disconnect fees? But that is the state of mobile phones in the US. And yes I want my tethering bad! I had full AT&T 3G coverage at the 4CU rally (not too far from 1-10). And the speed test showed 900k plus. Would have been nice to use the full keyboard on my Mac. And yes, you will lose Apple warranty coverage if you're caught unlocking. Key word caught.

I am clueless, but whenever I want to learn how to do something, especially something "techie" ~ search YouTube. It is probably there.

Here is a link that gives the skinny on unlocking your iPhone. It states that the only other GSM network (the only type of network that an iPhone will work on) in the USA is T-Mobile. Personally I'm happy with AT&T.

How To Unlock an iPhone - PC World

If you Google "unlocking iPhone you will get multiple references.

Based on someone's suggestion on this thread, I downloaded iGasUp. How cool! I was looking to tank up (I have a total of 80 gallons fuel capacity) and used this app - found a gas station 10 cents cheaper, maybe 3 miles out of my way that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. Very cool!

Trapster, EasyWriter, iFirstAid, Read It Later, Free Photo Filters, Pandora Box

Thanks for sharing what apps you've downloaded on to your iPhones everyone!

Janet, thanks for starting this thread. It's great!

In addition to some of the apps already mentioned we have (all are free):

Trapster – Trapster will notify you of red light cameras and speed cameras around you. It also stores location where police often hide. As you drive, it will notify you by voice when you are approaching any of those camera or police hide out locations. Pretty cool application, just imagine your mobile telling you that you are moving towards speed traps.

EasyWriter – This app is particularly useful when composing emails. It provides an alternative typing interface in the iPhone’s landscape view. It also allows you to pinch and zoom text to adjust its size and keeps track of your text when incoming call or text message comes in.

iFirstAid – This app could save lives. It provides all the basic information you need for handling an emergency situation and applying first-aid properly. The app was developed in cooperation with the White Cross Rescue Association, so know the information is reliable

Read It Later Free – Read It Later, a cross-platform browser extension for saving online articles for later reading, has just debuted their newly updated iPhone application. This latest version introduces a number of useful features for voracious mobile readers including support for articles spanning multiple pages, support for sites requiring logins (like WSJ or NYT), new sharing features, and a lot more.

Free Photo Filters – Free photo filters app provides filters include Lomography Filter, Poloarizing Filter, Black and White Filter, Retro Effect Filter and more.

Pandora Box – This app will let you to stay up on the other iPhone apps hitting the iTunes Apps Store every day. You can view apps that have discount offers or paid apps that just became free. Use it to create your own list of favorite apps, track apps you need most, and search for apps by name.

Yes, we might have to upgrade our iPhones to 32 Gigs from 16 Gigs.

Does anyone know of some sort of iPhone insurance that covers damage, loss or theft (besides standard homeowners insurance)? We were informed that AT & T does not offer insurance for their iPhones, just an extended warranty plan for manufacturer's defects.

I posted this on another thread, but seemed appropriate here:

AAA (and perhaps others) has an iPhone app called AAA Roadside that allows you to request service - and identifies to AAA where you are (via the iPhone GPS). Really cool - happy to say I haven't needed to use it, but this really could improve identifying to AAA where exactly you are requiring service, and all without needing to make a phone call.

There is also a second app called AAA Discounts that, again using GPS, identifies businesses nearby to your location that offer AAA discounts.

Here are a couple of other iPhone apps that I have on my phone that I recommend folks want to look at ~

There is a app called "Truck Stops" that gives lots of information on truck stops along different road routes.

I use the "Weather Channel" app on a daily basis.

I have the free version of "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) they also have a paid version.

There are also several apps for winery locators I have the Winery Quest Pro Lite version and it covers California wineries. There is also a Winery Quest Pro that is kind of spendy for a app ($6.99) so I downloaded the cheapie version first to see how it looks!

I also have Taxi Fight a quick and easy little game from Glu Mobile.

Tonight we are sitting inside (yes, inside) our Airstream watching and listening to our campfire. In fact we have 2 campfires. Sort of our own personal firedancer... A cute little free app for the iPhone called "eternal fire".

Favorite iPhone apps

These are my personal favorites, especially when camping or on the road (all available through iTunes):

-Knot Guide: pretty exhaustive tutorial on all knot categories

-iBird Yard: great for bird identification

-Ocarina: fun app for music around the campfire

-If Found: puts emergency phone number on opening page of iPhone without the need to go into applications or unlock the phone if it's found, but in a locked mode.

-Astronomy:
1. Sun 'n Moon: handy if you want to get up in time to photograph sunrises.
2. In addition to Star Walk, "Distant Suns" is a good app for stargazing
3. "Perpetuum": For calculating moon phases that will either light your way (full moon), or if a new moon, allow for maximum star observation.

Kudos to the originator of this thread! Gotta go download some of these other apps!

-Jerry

Photogene

Sorry, almost forgot: Photogene is an excellent app for editing photos on your iPhone, whether downloaded from your computer, or taken with the iPhone's camera.

Walmart. If you type in Walmart in the search window, it will provide you an app called Walmart (go figure). The cool part is it has a store locator, so if you are sans a campground and looking for a place to crash for the night, I can see this being pretty useful.
