Find my iPhone works with any browser as well. I agree that the boundaries are set but I am happy user with iPod, iPad user. Note: I am a power user on a PC doing most critical work on servers but now I am a convert

There are no unlocks available for BB 04.12.01 right now. You need to wait and pray that some one comes out with an unlock for it.

hi friends
i am a newbie when it comes to i phone, will apreciate any help you offer on my doubts and questions.
i phone 4 - 32 GB purchased was factory unlocked as sold by retailer. The software details show version 5.0 (9A334), model MC605ZP.
He also charged me Rs 1000/- for downloading loads of HD songs video/audio and movies whilst selling, with a promise to jail break it when jail break will be available.
Now he has jail break code available but i am not sure if i want to do it? As i am not clear about the advantages and disadvantages of jail break?
Although i have downloaded i tunes on my computer, I have not yet done any sinking of the phone with my computer. Someone told me that i will loose all the data of songs and the apps that i have purchased if i sink it with any other computer. Is it true?
so basically i am stuck up with just downloading pictures clicked from my phone to my desktop and not other way round, neither can i load any personal choice songs or videos on to the phone.
what do i do to sink it with my computer and have seamless transfers of data without fear of loosing any.
Any help in this regards will be very much apreciated.
thanks and regards

^^ Yes if you sync your Iphone to another computer, all your data will be lost. Even I dont have any clue about how we can sync to another computer without losing our data. Advantages of jailbreaking are that you can install various themes and,many games and apps from Cydia store. Rest for your knowledge you can google and find it. Hope this helps.

jail breaking voids warranty on your iPhone (if Apple finds out ) but it opens doors to customization that apple abhors. Chose your pick. I personally do not recommend but if certain softwares don't work, go on. It's not complicated either, but be cautious for security.

You have a sinking feeling to sync your iPhone to PC. Don't worry, yes the will be lost but there's a way to everything. Dude seriously no one spends a grand for songs, he ripped you. Just use torrents :P

There are a number of PC application for transferring your phone songs and load it on your PC. There are loads if you google them, chose the one suits you. Once you have all the data on the PC, sync on.

No unlock as on date for 4.12.01. Unlock for 4.11.08 is in testing phase. In my opinion, the best you can do is keep it with you and pray that an unlock arrives.

If you wish to sell it, then it wouldn't fetch more than the equivalent ipod touch.

PS - In China, they replace the baseband chip to one which can be unlocked. Mind you that this is a hardware unlock that costs well over US$60 and it is something I wouldn't recommend.

alright, i just about had enough with the iP4!

sounds all messed up; earlier it was just the notifications, but now sometimes the calls get garbled (when taken on the phone/speakerphone). sometimes even the phone is not on silent/vibrate mode, there is no sound for events such as email/sms/calls!

how do i reset the phone to what it was when i bought it (iOS 4.something) and what am i gonna lose when i do this?

assuming it is factory unlocked. Backup to iTunes and when connected to comp then restore.
Alternatively, try erase all settings.

Once done restore from backup.
All this is for factory unlocked pieces.
