so can I download / stream, whatever the term is something on iplayer when I'm in a wifi zone and then watch it when I'm not pls? That is on the Itouch.

Not unless you jailbreak

Shoreditch CPFC 11-09-2008 01:09 PM

is jailbreaking reversible? I.e. if it all goes wrong can you restore factory defaults and thus still use the guarantee?

Short answer is yes, longer answer available if you want it.

Shoreditch CPFC 11-09-2008 01:52 PM

yes pls to longer answer.

So when you jailbreak there is a small chance you could lock yopurself out of the phone or 'brick it' - so bear that in mind. Seems to be very rare though.

The other issue is that if you go > standard firmware --> jailbreak --> standard then I *believe* you may lose your settings and have to add them again.

Personally I think you would have more love for the Skype phone than this

Shoreditch CPFC 11-09-2008 02:59 PM

well I've got a blackberry & a touch. What I want is to be able to make Skype calls occasionally without carrying a 3rd device around. It isn't really a money thing, it's a functional practical thing.

Jailbreaking is breaking to iPhones security and code to make changes, and install a applications that apple either don't support, or don't approve of..

You mean like unlocking a vodafone mobile phone to install apps on it that vodafone doesn't approve of?

No but they lock them down to restrict the software you install on them

Dave 12-09-2008 08:07 AM

If vodpaphone locked down the phone and the phones were unix based then yes it would be called jailbreaking.
