ah, will try that.

when I push the button on the top that turns the screen off, shaking doesn't wake it up again.
I have to press the button on the face to arouse it.

Is that right?

The screen turning off thing is fantastic! If you look at the screen (move it away from ur ear) whilst on't phone and it lights up! Genius I think!

That is normal - the shaking thing is just for when the screen turns off when on a call

Apple are great.

The Ipod I brought off some one at work worked fine for a little bit but I downloaded something which was destroying the Battery.

I went in and even said it was second hand yet they still gave me a new one :)

Right - so Teaser has a new Mac - when we plug in the iphone it recognises it Ok and backups up however how do you make itunes copy the existing stuff from the iphone back to the mac so that becomes your primary source of data?

does that make sense?

what do you do if itunes is empty and you want to copy the data back from the iphone?

Dave 17-10-2008 12:04 AM

It seems you can't

Tomo 17-10-2008 12:07 AM

I didn't think it could but would be interested to know if any one does find a way for when I get my imac.

Thats correct, its always been that way officially, its an apple anti privacy measure which is pretty lame. On the old ipods there were ways around it, not sure if its been hacked on the iphone though.

Best thing to do Dave is to copy it across your network from one Mac to the other or failing that have a network in the house that every device refers to (obviously doesn't work if you aren't in). You can both point at the same network iTunes library.

We can't copy the itunes library from the old PC and that PC won't boot.

In general we keel all our music on a central fileserver running Linux then copy whatever we want to have on our ipods into itunes. However there seems to be a few missing albums on Teaser's iphone that we don't have on the filseserver.

Itunes is basically junk IMVHO

Mrs Smoz is considering getting herself an iphone (after seeing my recently acquired iPod Touch).

In your experiences what are the weak points of this device?I know that battery life is not great and that it cannot handle MMS, are their any other things which you thnk could be better?

Battery life is poor.
3G can be patchy on 02.
The software keyboard isn't as good as a real qwerty
I have found the exchange support to be poor compared to blackberry

Ridcully 19-10-2008 11:22 AM

No cut and paste, no forwarding of texts, no tethering options to use your phone as a modem (unless you jailbreak) and no IM capability.

Battery life wise, it equals the Vario I used to have but against mobiles its low.

Smoz 19-10-2008 03:43 PM

Cheers chaps, will let her know.

Tomo 19-10-2008 03:59 PM

What happens if someone tries to send you a picture message via MMS to an iPhone?

you get a link to 02's website and you login to view.

No MMS is no big deal for me, I'd rather email.
