Just in case anyone else who is on Virgin is thinking of buying an IPhone and sticking their sim card in it then dont bother! Although the calls and texts will cost you the same you cannot get any internet allowance (even if you have allowance for it) as Virgin does not work with Apple and they do not deal in IPhones. So just got to put up with it until my contract expires or pay 150 to get out of it.

I put this on the hotukdeals thread, but thought it might be good here too, as it's an amazing deal

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just signed up for this

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sim-...228566?aui=425

I was already on the Sim 300, but on a month to month. Am happy with it and happy to commit to a year. Will now be getting 300 mins, 3000 texts and 1Gb a month for only 20 for the whole year!!

Hope it benefits some of you.

My iphone emails will not open anymore, they arrive, I can see them as normal but, cannot open any of them. The screen is frozen it seems yet all other functions of the phone work. I can open on the desktop and they then loose the unread blue dot on the handset...I am a tad thick when it comes to technology. Any suggestions please?

Try a soft reboot. It tends to fix a lot of things.

Hold the power button and home button for ten secs, then it should turn off, turn it back on and see if that is any better.

Why, thank you very much - it has worked. :lux:

Another problem I have (one of many) is, I get email attachments which I need to open (perferably on desk top) but can't, no idea how to make them open even after reading all kinds of 'help'.
The files arrive as DbMail.tif and try as I might, I cannot convert it to something readable! I can however, on my phone.

Cant help there I'm afraid, but if reading it right sounds like a PC issue not iPhone?

.tif are image files, found this.

I imagine someone more computer technical would be able to help, try one of the other threads.

Oh yes, of course. Will look at the link and if I can't understand (probable) I'll post in another thread. Thanks again.

When they sort out podcasts in iTunes I'll go wild. Abysmal.

Nice app though :)

Dave 27-06-2012 08:17 AM

Podcasts need never go near iTunes again, that is the point

Yee ha!

I don't want to be unnecessarily confrontations (again), but having downloaded this App, I cannot see how it improves podcasts on iTunes.

I don't much like iTunes, and there is much that could be improved/done better in a separate App, but finding and downloading podcasts is the one thing that iTunes has always done fine - for me at least.

So, perhaps I am missing something. What exactly does this App do which is an improvement on the iTunes version?

I can subscribe within the app, I don't need to plug into iTunes to add a subscription.

Also, podcasts will auto download

In summary, podcasts without plugging into iTunes, sort of useful in the post pc age

First of hopefully more apps that remove the need to plug in. With Match, podcasts and OTA updates I can't think of a reason why I need to plugin again for audio. Once TV launches they'll probably have a video match service too.

I still like using my Mac to search for stuff, which means I'm stuck with iTunes. I have a lot of podcasts, and want to be able to organise them better on my computer. Some stuff I search for comes in a combination of podcast and iTunes U as well, and it's easier to that in one search than through two apps.

I like the app though. It just doesn't resolve my main issue which is about a decent podcast/iTunes U catalog system.
