Re: Anyone else have problems with iPhoneModem? - 03-12-2009, 05:52 PM
Why did I do it?
1) I hate the fact Apple is selling a phone that can record video, and refuses to release the app for it. This works great on a jail broken iPhone.
2) No tethering?
3) No theming? I would be willing to pay Apple for themes. Instead, I have to jailbreak, and create my own themes.
4) No ability to change the received text/sms tones? So Apple, let me get this right, you want me to buy ringtones from you, but not text/sms tones. Hmmm ok.
5) Better 3rd party apps for SMS support, and landscape text entry.
6) Different choice of keyboards.
7) Make it easier for my wife to swap from her Instinct to a iPhone, by adding a vibration every time a letter is typed. the best of both worlds.
8) A free GPS app, with directiong announcing, etc.
9) No copy and paste?

I haven't tried iPhoneModem yet. I probably will since I cannot get PDANet to work with my Mini 9 running OS X. Anybody have any tips for PDANet. I don't want to pay for it yet since it does not work, or maybe that is why it doesn't work.

Can't offer an tips for getting PDA Net to work (it just worked "out of the box" for me). If you're willing to wait, there have been a number of rumors that iPhone OS 3.0 will contain a tethering capability, although being an official Apple app no doubt it'll probably be charged at some stupid extra rate.

Yes there will be a charge for tethering. But i doubt Apple gives a crap about it. ATT eyes are glazing over and wringing their hands for the money they'll be making. Apple just wants to sell phones.
