Question please about this whole APN thing.

We know from what information we have that if you got a hacked 3G iPhone, that the $1/day casual data rate will not apply to you (let's say you are on Prepay) because the iPhone uses some specific APN that Vodafone won't allow the $1 to apply on. Ok.

How easy/difficult would it be for a hacked iPhone using unofficial software to change this APN thingameebob?

Question 2: Regarding iPhone 1.0, does this APN exclusion thing also apply? Or is it only relevant to the 3G iPhone? And let's say that you upgrade the 1st Gen iPhone to 2.0 software - would this then create the same problem above of an APN being used which would not apply for $1/day cap?

Sorry for the n00bness - I don't have a clue about what APNs are or do.

No one in the world can answer your 1st question because no one yet owns a 3G iphone to even know what settings are there + the fact there is no hacked 3G iphone since no hack is available due to 3G iphone not being released anywhere yet.....so no one can answer this....

pretty sure you can use the standard iphone on the $1/10Mb plan....




Do whatever you want to do man.

I suspect the iPhone has it's only special APN, judging by various comments about data & not working on pre-pay etc. I guess similar to how the Blackberry's are locked into a special Blackberry plan and goes through their own server (something like that anyway)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
