    So, can Voda(s)care sort me out? Got the phone May this year....
    How long will it take to fix?
    How much (if anything ?) will this cost me? Besides some of my dignity

    Thanks for your help in advance....
    Vodacom may help you but will want you to pay for it, which could be pricey, but worth a check. You could try get hold of this person (you may need to ask on one of their other auctions) and see if they can still source them : http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/15109...ray_black.html. There may be other places that do repairs (guessing) that could also source it for you.

    Does anyone know what the packages in SinfilIphonerepo "Internet Tethering" are for?

    Will it be possible to use Internet Tethering on MTN with that installed?

    Default SUCCESS! How to enable Internet Tethering!!

    This will work on MTN and Vodacom (unauthorized iPhone APN) - tested and working!

    Just follow this tutorial to patch your CommCenter file.

    Then go to this address on your MobileSafari to generate your own MobileConfig file to enable tethering.

    You could try iFixiPods, they pretty good

    it's when you use your phone as a modem whilst connected to a PC.

    If you with Vodacom and your number is registered to work with the iphone.vodacom.za APN you don't have to worry about this - internet tethering will just work.

    I'm with Vodacom but I use the APN 'internet', the other one didn't work...

    I don't see the point of tethering though because I have internet on my computer...

    Hi guys

    Thinking of updating my software on my iPhone 3G 8gb. It is currently jailbroken on 3.0.1

    Just wanna make sure I've got the correct procedure.
    I first backup my phone in itunes then update normally to 3.1.2
    Then download and run Blackra1n, Install Cydia
    and everything should be cool...?

    Will all my contacts sms's etc be fine? Also don't suppose it will keep cracked app data...

    Lastly is it worth upgrading, I heard there was a performance boost too, is that true?

    Thanks

    Obviously you will use your internet on your computer, but what happens if you on a laptop away from your router and you quickly want to check something on the net? Or in my case, my ADSL line ****ing out every time there is lightning?

    Call your service provider and tell them to add the iPhone 'iphone.vodacom.za' APN to your number.

    You've got it right.

    Backup in iTunes (This procedure backs up: Pics,SMS,Notes,Application Data,Contacts,Call History and Settings) - make sure you've also got the latest version of iTunes.

    Once phone reboots after restore of 3.1.2, you can restore your backup onto the new firmware.

    Download blackra1n and you good to go!
    Yes, all your Cydia apps will get erased and you will have to re-install them.

    It's always worth upgrading! 3.1.2 is solid.

    So that problem where you upgrade a jailbroken phone and loose space because of the partition made for jailbreaking is no longer a problem?
