Got an iPhone?

If it's been Jailbreaked, you can now play XM radio on it. Sirius has been out a while, but they just released the uXM app that'll let you stream XM to your iPhone. And it works over the Edge network!

Re: Got an iPhone?

And if it ATT legal and not Jailbroke, can I stream Sirius over Edge? How where etc. is the app. I plan to upgrade to 3G on Friday if the line is not too long.

Re: Got an iPhone?

The phone has to be Jailbreaked. Then just use the installer to load it.

Keep in mind that the new 3G iPhones will be running 2.0 and cannot be Jailbreaked....yet, anyway.

Re: Got an iPhone?

I don't care about the jailbreak thang, I wants one! Using the old Edge is kind of like dial up and the GPS function on the new one is downright slick.

Can I do Excel?

Re: Got an iPhone?

I've heard the GPS is slow, but until I hold one in my hands and try it, I'll never know. Plus the data plan is $10 more a month and texting is on top of that. Way too costly over time, and not enough benefit for me to upgrade.

When you're lost, who cares how slow it is? I've never understood the texting thang. Hello! It's a phone. Talk on it. Stoopid leetle shits that text on the highway deserve to be beat.

I'll pay the 10 smackers to be able to read the board faster and not have to lug the laptop around for that reason. Besides, think JOB security. You're not moving to Dallas, are you?

Think of texting as having a private conversation in a public place. Nobody ever hears what you say.

Nope. Staying right here.............as far as I know.

Re: Got an iPhone?

Wish the iphone would work over a good network, for a change! Say Verizon?
