You do need Tiger (OS X 10.4.10) or above to connect to an iPhone, 10.3.9 does not have the appropriate software to connect to your iPhone. Do not forget however that Leopard (OS X 10.5) will be released soon so hold off upgrading until it is, you'll be glad you upgraded anyway and you'll also be able to connect to your iPhone. There are in fact 1 or 2 ways you can connect to you're iPhone from 10.3 (or any *NIX for that matter but they are very technically involved and will not provide the functionality you are looking for.

My phone will take a picture but not display it


If your iPhone gets to the Silver logo but restarts from there again and again then it is an indication of problem with the booting system. This often results due to Jailbreaking or updating your iPhone to latest iOS without enough battery life. You can fix this easily by entering into DFU Mode.

A DFU mode stand for Device Firmware Update mode which helps you to make small changes to the software that is exactly responsible for running your device. It is most often confused with Recovery Mode but it is very comprehensive than that. To enter into DFU mode follow these steps

Step1: Connect your iPhone with Computer

Step2: Since your device is turned off you need to hold down the sleep/power and Home buttons at the same time for atleast 10 seconds. Be patient in this step and make sure you hold these buttons for exactly 10 seconds because otherwise you will enter into recovery mode.

Step 3: After 10 seconds have passed, let go of the sleep/power button, but keep holding the Home Button.

Step4: Now Apple Logo will appear on you iPhone but you should not stop holding the home button until recovery warning pops up on your iTunes.

Step 5: A difference between DFU and recovery mode can understood by observing your iPhone screen. If it is black then you are in DFU mode and if shows a cable connecting to the iTunes icon then you are in recovery mode. The latter cases you will need to repeat all the steps and this time you should lay more emphasis on Step 3 and Step 4. It is normal if you don't get there in first few tries.

Once you are in DFU mode you can downgrade your iPhone iOS in case the new version has created the problem.

Iphone 5 charging and connection problems


You need to figure out the amperage of the usb port in the Veracruz, the dealer should have access to that. If the port isn't putting out more than 500ma the iPhone may fail to charge. I recommend a charger atleast 1amp or higher. You either need to connect using bluetooth to the audio system or a hard wired aux cable to the input of the veracruz.

Where can I find one ?


Regardless of what you are looking for, my suggestion (to save some dough) is eBay. eBay will have all sorts of Operating Systems for all types of computers, a lot of which you can bid on and win one for cheap or, one that you can buy directly ("Buy Now") option, for cheap.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I bought the Text Free Unlimited app as an alternate way to send SMS messages w/o having to pay per each message, and whenever I receive a message, I get notified via the Mail app. However, I get notified...


Is your email push? As far as I know, only MobileMe and Yahoo offer Push service.
If you have gmail and hotmail or other email service, iPhone checks around every 15 minutes. So, that may be the problem.

No install disc or administer pass word for OSK 10.5.8.


John, I am sorry to say the best way is go buy either Mac OS 10.5 or the upgrade to 10.6. As you get a couple of screens into the install process you will see the Menu Bar appear across the top of the screen. There is an option to reset the password.

How can I create a group SMS on my iphone


I know that if you sync with a OSX, you can create groups for your contacts. As far as I know, you can't do that with iTunes running Windows XP.

My Iphone wont turn on


If you are comfortable with opening devices you can take a multimeter to the battery. If the phone doesn't turn on if you battery has 3.7V or more you have a logic board issue. Oh, did you do a hard reset yet? Press menu and sleep/wake button together for 5 sec. If after all revival attempts you still don't get it to turn on It's usually an issue with the logic board, so ultimately if you want to resolve it, the logic board needs to be replaced. There are iPhone Repair guides that show you how.

Error 300


OSX support for Powerbooks is VERY sloppy. Try installing the iP90 in "Classic" (OS9.2.2) instead. 922 has built-in drivers for every port on Powerbooks. OSX can't even load a SCSI card on laptops. Or iRda, or any USB above 1.1 etc.... very shabby. Apple was sued for "abandoning" Powerbook support with OSX and LOST a BIG class action. Alternatively, partition your HD with TWO operating systems, and load 9.2.2 as a boot option (with OSX as the other). OSX is "emulating" 922, but this method allows OS922 to "run itself". It is MUCH faster (boots in 10 seconds, compared to MINUTES for OSX) and your iP90 will work on USB or irDa -both! 922 will only need a 700mb partition at least... OSX needs 4gb or more (to accomplish far less, far slower)
