^^ Hey Navan, my friend uses the nike sensor ! He used it with his iPod and now he's bought the new 4S which uses the GPS. But for that you would need to purchase the Nike app for $1.99.

He uses the sensor right now with his 4S with the inbuild Nike+ (not the priced app) and other apps like Runkeeper.

The thing with the "Special" Nike Shoes is just that it comes with a inbuilt slot in the soul where the sensor fits in perfect. Nothing more special about those shoes ! He right now ties the sensor to his shoelace!!

For you guess the best would be to purchase the Nike app for $1.99 which would basically do that same thing as the sensor would since iPhone 4 comes with the GPS.

Hope that helps

I went to purchase two iphones yesterday, best price for 4s was 41,500 with bill and to my shock 36500 for iph 4 with bill. Without bill iph4 is for 31,500, i remember when i went to buy BB torch iph4 was for 28,500 with bill. I asked the shopkeeper about the rise in iph4 price, he said sir APPLE is the 1st company i have seen that doesn't go with the market trend but makes the market to move on their tunes.

Anyways, i have decided that i wont buy 4s but will go for iph4, i want two handsets with bill, anyone aware of any direct dealer in Delhi? Not the retailer but the wholesaler, believe i can get it cheaper from him.

Do let me know, need it urgently.

Ravi, if the rates are same its better to buy it from Apple store directly ! That way you are rest assured you will have your phone under their 1 year warranty !

This jailbreak is entirely new when compared to the fixes available for 3GS, 3 etc. So its better to wait for some more time till the jailbreak stabilizes.

True that. What I have got is a INR 50,000 brick! So much for having fun. The 3GS runs perfect. I have even got iMessage and Siri to work
The good part is that I am getting a software flash from Apple to get the 4S back to stock after pleading ignorance

Hi
I have a 3GS with me and was wondering if Siri can be activated?
It's factory unlocked on iOS 5
So no jailbreaks for me
Thanks in advance !

Siri is not available for iOS5 on 3GS, so you need to wait patiently for some more time before some one hacks it. Another issue is 3GS phone requires a validation token from a 4S phone for it to connect to the Siri server. Lets hope Apple comes with a new build iOS for 3GS phone with Siri once the initial euphoria of 4GS phone die down.

I have a 4S with me as well. Any help on generating the token, if that solves the issue would be appreciated...

The home button issue is hardware problem and cannot be repaired. Apple is offering me a new phone instead. I gave a tight press to the button and it started working fine. Maybe I will get the phone replaced before the warranty runs out.

I have not tried this, so not sure how safe this is. Try it at your own risk and please post the results here for the benefit of others.

Apple will not repair iPhones. They'll replace them. It's a good idea to get it replaced. I've done that twice. Would be also worthwhile to get apple care and extend the coverage by an year.
