Then you will overwrite what is on your iphone with what is on the new PC

paf 27-11-2008 04:01 PM

my 3 contract seems never ending, anyone know about these sim gizmos you plug in alongside your own sim and effectively unlock the iphone to any network.

rebel sim is the product.

LOL, actually, that is not a bad plan, I think it's 25 per month, but last months bill was nearly 90 squids, so I'm not really sure, I'm a bit rubbish with bills and things.

Has anyone heard when a 32gb version might be out.

I've held off from getting a iphone for so long, and my contract is up next month, so I was wondering whether I should wait for a v2.0 32gb version, or bite the bullet and get a v1.0 16gb.

Dont they let you upgrade if you have one already ??

From what I gather on here there wouldn't be an announcement until January if they do plan to bring one out and even then they wouldn't release anything until around July time.

Most people on the forums advise to just get one now. I agree - you won't regret it.

Really enjoying the Wunderadio that was recommended by James, only disappointing thing was that the cricket on Radio 4 LW and 5 Live Sports Extra was not playing on it due to broadcasting rights or something. Is there any way to get around this?

Not with WunderRadio - it's a problem with Internet radio. Because it is streamed round the World, certain broadcasts cannot be transmitted that way.

You can get Palace Radio if that's any use - I was listening to it this afternoon (with only a basic, Edge, connection). You need to type in the URL, but it works perfectly.

The solution is to use Orb - and stream digital Radio via your home PC. I do this and can get all the Satellite Radio stations on the Road (as well as Sky Sports News and all the other digital terrestrial TV channels). Obviously you need a digital TV tuner on your PC, but these are as cheap as chips these days).

I'm struggling with converting iTunes files to ringtones, even after consulting the sages on this thread. When I go to Windows Movie Maker to clip the relevant 30 seconds from a track, it does not recognise the song files (.m4r) as audio files. I can attach them to a clip, but not play them. Any ideas?

can't you just use itunes to convert and create the files rather than use windows movie?

Swanny32 01-12-2008 02:02 PM

All you have to do is find a 30 second segment of the song you like and clip the song using itunes, then copy the file, convert to the relevant file type and move it to ringtones.

I have got an email at home with step by step guide on how to make a ringtone using Itunes

Okay, I'm still struggling. How do I clip a song using iTunes? Where's the option to clip it?

The only reference to ringtones I can find is by right-clicking on a song and press "convert to ringtones" but that doesn't work because it says I can only create ringtones from songs purchased from the iTunes store. 99.9% of my songs have been copied from CD and I'm sure someone on here has mentioned how to get around this.....

Silly question but I'm about to replace my computer and I'm wondering if there's any easy way to have my iPhone sync with the new computer and keep all my stuff.

Is it as easy as copying my iTunes information over onto the new computer or is there something a bit more complex I need to do?

I find the feature useful - but I can see how it might be a bit awkward if your mistress sends you a saucy message while your locked phone is on the kitchen table as your wife is cooking the tea ...

They will stop over time, usually about a week. The mailserver will keep trying to deliver for a period of time (usually referenced in the email).

You could write to google and see if they can help earlier.
