Go to itunes. There, wait for itunes to recognize your iphone. It will then ask you if you want to upgrade. Click yes. If it doesn't ask you if you want to upgrade, try to find the manual button that says upgrade. Don't try to upgrade without using itunes

SOURCE: What jailbreak iphone 3g program makes the iphone think it's on wifi?

You can get that app on cydia and it's called tricker threeG. The app is known to work well and great for skype and sling box. That's the advantage when you jailbreak iphone 3g, it allows the user to download extensions, applications and limitations which is not allowed with Iphone devices. Although it still consider illegal, a lot of people are doing it to enjoy the many benefits it brings. Who wouldn't be interested to install useful applications that normally cannot make it to Apple's app store. If you choose to use the full potential of your iPhone then you need to jailbreak it.

How To Save Battery On Your iPhone or iPod Touch


<p><span><span> </span>Is your iPhone or iPod Touch's battery level always depleting quickly? Do you not have enough juice to get you through the day? Here are some quick tips to conserve your battery life and help you get through the day while you are Facebooking, sending texts, and calling.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>First, lets make sure you can monitor your batter level. This is how you will turn on the percentage of battery display.</span><br /> <p><span>1.<span> </span></span><span>Go to your home-screen.</span><br /> <p><span>2.<span> </span></span><span>Open up the Settings App.</span><br /> <p><span>3.<span> </span></span><span>Tap General then Usage</span><br /> <p><span>4.<span> </span></span><span>Where it says battery percentage, make sure the switch is in the on position.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>Now that you can monitor your battery life, here are a few things you should continually do to save battery.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Don't keep multiple apps running if you don't have to. iPhones and iPod Touches have multitasking to run multiple apps at once, but this can use a lot of battery. To delete tasks, double tap the home button and then hold down an icon at the bottom of the screen. Once the apps begin to wiggle, tap the X by the app to stop the task (note: this won't delete the app, it will only stop it from running).</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another battery saving setting is not fetching email quite as often, I mean, do you really need to check your email every 15 minutes or hour? Fetching data uses a lot of battery, to disable or not as frequently fetch for data, go to the Settings app again. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Fetch New Data and set it to Manually so to check email, go to the email app and click the refresh button.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Your iPhone has an adjustable brightness, and a higher brightness wastes more battery, to change the brightness: go to your Settings app. Go to Brightness and turn your brightness down. You don't necessarily need to turn it all the way down(especially when you are in bright lighting conditions, kind of ironic that you need higher brightnesses in brighter environments), but if you are in a pitch black room, then there is no reason to have the brightness above the minimum level.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good habit is turning off bluetooth and wifi when you are not using them, to do this, go to your Settings app again. Go to Wi-Fi and turn of wifi. To turn of bluetooth, go to General then Bluetooth and turn it off.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>If you don't necessarily use an app a lot or at all, turn off Push Notifications. To do this scroll all the way down on your Settings app, and choose that particular app. This will only be useful on an app that gets information from the internet. In the particular app that you chose, usually there will be a Push Notifications option, and you can disable this, this will help your battery because your iPhone constantly tries to search for data with these on. Also, when installing apps, you can disable this then.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good way to save battery (iPhone only) is to switch from the 3g(fast internet)radio to Edge(slower internet) radio. On the iPhone, you have twice as much battery with Edge radio. To change between the two, go to your Settings app once again. Go to General then Network and where it says Enable 3g switch it to off. You can/should do this when you aren't heavily surfing the internet, checking Facebook, or downloading apps. Don't use this with apps that require heavy internet usage.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>One final tip to conserve battery is changing the amount of time until the iPhone/iPod Touch goes into sleep mode. If you forget to put it in sleep mode, it will stay on and waste battery in your pocket, etc. To change the amount of time to save battery, go to your Settings app again. Go to General then Auto-Lock and change it to something short such as 1 or 2 minutes.</span><br /> <p><span>These tips will significantly prolong your battery, use them to your advantage.</span><br />

How to use make video call on an iPhone 3G using Live Link

Using the back camera, people can make video call over wifi using Live Link 3G, from Yudo, Inc. <br /> <br /> This app is now available for iPhone 3G users in the US & probably the whole world. <br /> <br /> To make a video call, you must install the app on both the caller & the receiver's iPhone. The app also works for the iPhone 4 & iPhone 3GS. <br /> The app is approved by Apple so you don't need to jailbreak your iPhone to install it. The only requirement is for your iPhone to have iOS 4.0 or later versions, installed. <br /> <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/live-link-3g-fine-3/id360021071?mt=8"><b>CLICK HERE to download Live Link 3G</b></a> or use thie link below: <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/live-link-3g-fine-3/id360021071?mt=8">http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/live-link-3g-fine-3/id360021071?mt=8</a> <span><br /></span> <span><br /></span> <span>Once you've installed the app, here are the steps on how you can make video calls on it.</span> <ol> <li><span>Open Live Link 3G and register your account.

I don't have record vedeo in my iphone3 8gb I can just take photo coud u help me please


The iPhone 3G did not initially come out with video recording capabilities, but the functionality was added through a software update. If you connect the phone to iTunes, and click on Check for Update, you can update it to the latest firmware, and then you will gain recording functionality. To use it, open the camera app and press the switch in the bottom right of the screen to switch to video recording.

My iPhone stop ringing. It only vibrares. Also the keyboard does not sounds. However I can listen to the radio . What can I do? Thanks a lot. Dolores


Chances are, you turned ON the Silent switch on the side of the iPhone. You'll know that it's turned ON if you see a little red dot (for iPhone 3G & 3GS) or a red line (for iPhone 4). To locate it, refer to the image below: 16aae05.jpg
