Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Turn your Phone in a - iPhone

Are you thinking about buying that new shiny iPhone? Do you like that pretty new interface, and cool touchscreen interface? Well guess what you don't have to wait in line to get those features, lets mod YOUR phone to emulate it!
For these instructions you will need a touchscreen phone running Windows Mobile 5 or 6. We will be using an HTC Mogul 6800 for our mod. Let it be known that you can also mod a Palm based device to look like an iPhone but in this article we will only be focusing on the WM based phones.

1) To add the iPhone look to your dial pad, you will need to find and install: iPhone_dialpad.cab; Simply serch in google - download iPhone_dialpad.cab.


2) Next in order to get the nice slide unlock feature, we are going to need to install the Slide2Unlock program. This is freeware and you can download it from below link -

You will have to reboot once the slide2unlock has been installed.

3) Last but not least we will need to install the iPhone GUI. You will need to find a file called iPhone-0986.zip.
Simplay serch this file on google.

You will need to extract and drag and drop to a folder of your choice.
I used My Documents\iPhone

Once installed on your pocket pc; Navigate to that folder and highlight iPhone and click menu ->edit->copy


Once you have the copy in memory navigate over to the startup folder Windows\StartUp
This time select Menu Edit -> Paste Shortcut


You know have installed your iPhone skin on your Windows mobile phone.
You will need to configure some of the buttons by editing the "config.txt" file located in the iPhone folder that you copied to above (\My Documents\iPhone)
It is in the Following Format :
1. It first has the 16 icons paths as in \Icons\*.bmp
2. Then 16 Names for the icons
3. The then 16 application paths that will run for the apps as in \Windows\calendar.exe for example to launch the calendar
At the point where you have configured the buttons, your phone is pretty much iLike. If you would like to exit this interface, click on the battery.

The last couple things you might want to find would be the official iPhone ringer & maybe some extra icons for you to use.

So Enjoy you'r new iPhone.........

Good Luck!!

Is the iPhone 5 scratch easily?


Yes it is!
Apple replaced the backplate material from corning glass to anodized aluminum. Aluminum is a softermaterial than glass, so this means that everytime the iPhone falls on the floorit scratches. People complain that their new iPhone already looks like its warnout and old. I guess it gives it a vintage look&feel...

Iphone touchscreen not working:(


I think my solution for my Viewty will work for the iPhone

I found a solution for the LG KU990 Viewty touchscreen not responding problem. After thinking about twisting my phone, I came up with another solution which actually works every time. The touchscreen works via layers of plastic that when contact is made, a signal is triggered from the coordinates of the contact. However, when the phone has pressure, these layers of plastic stick together somehow. So, to fix it.... Get a small strip of adhesive tape that will not leave a sticky residue on your screen. Apply that tape in several spots on the surface of the screen, and lift it away from the phone with light pressure. Repeat this in several areas of the screen. That's it. You're done. Your screen should function properly. Simply recalibrate the touchscreen at this point in your settings menu. I hope it helps everyone with any type of touchscreen. I know it helped me. The touchscreen phones are totally useless using only the hard keys!
