Multipath TCP is nothing but the ability to send data packets via multiple interfaces (3G, Wi-Fi etc.). for example, i'm browsing Team-BHP using the app on my home Wi-Fi network and suddenly there is a power failure and my router shuts down. using MPTCP, iOS 7 will seamlessly connect to the Team-BHP server and allow me to continue doing what i was doing on the app using alternative interfaces i.e. GPRS or 3G (and 4G if available).

if you've noticed in iOS 6, when switching over from a Wi-Fi network to a cellular network the Team-BHP app would often display a Connection Timeout error. i've rarely seen that on iOS 7 (unless i don't have cellular network too). this could be MPTCP in play.

now here's a test you could do - connect to your Wi-Fi network from your phone, check the the counter is running on the router and then switch off (not disconnect) WiFi on your phone. wait until the counter expires (and then some) and then switch on the WiFi on your phone and see if your phone connects automatically to the network.

when you first connect to the network, the DHCP server on your router assigns an address and your phone gets connected to the network. the CLT (Client Lease Time) is 3hrs. however, when it reaches the midway mark (1.5hrs), your phone enters renewal period for the leased address and the address is renewed for another 3hrs (counter reset).

however, if you were to switch off your WiFi (after initially connecting to the router) and don't activate it for lets say 4hrs and then try to connect to the network, it would definitely ask for your credentials because there was never a renewal process of the lease time and the router, as it should, terminated your connection to it

remember, your phone might support MPTCP, but your router may not (MPTCP is an ongoing effort, so i'm guessing current routers are not equipped with this feature as yet).


fact: did you know that the operating system used in Cisco routers is also known as IOS? Internetwork Operating System

ps: sorry for getting carried away *green grinning fella*

Now that is some knowledge, thanks. Will try out what you described and post the results.

Btw I have also experienced this seamless transition from WiFi to 3G (wifi signal strength in my room and it keeps fluctuating). I had never noticed it earlier.

I used PhoneClean to free up space on my iPhone 4S - http://www.imobie.com/phoneclean/

I usually don't keep any junk on my phone. I remove and add apps that take too much of space on a regular basis. In spite of this, I got back over 700 MB of space with this application.

I've 1.92 GB of "Others" in my phone. One of these days, I'll restore the phone and this should come down to about 700 MB.

My friend recently got a fresh iPhone 4S from apple US, he got it replaced as his 4S was not charging when it's ON. He already bought Lumia 920 and now planning to sell his 4s for 29k

The price of the iPhone 4S was reduced to 31.5K two weeks ago. Whether its actually available in stores, that I'm not sure of.

Hello Recompose.

Thanks for this info, I have been tracking the iphone prices as my sister wants one, if the price is negotiable then I will check out the piece.

I missed the offers on Amazon when iphone 4 was retailing for 18k last week.

It is not a pure contract model as followed in the west. The EMI schemes already existing in the market have been cleverly disguised as contract plan.

Am sure that you'll need a fully loaded credit card to be able to avail the benefit. Rcom will only act as a facilitator. The good part is that Rcom is planning to offer free unlimited data, voice and text along the 2 year contract period.

Lets wait and watch the fun that unfolds tonight.

If only it turns out that Rcom is gonna offer the pure contract model, am sure it is gonna burn its fingers quite badly.

Finally got the 5S 32GB in Gold .

Had to go mall hopping all over Chennai to get it in Gold.
Apparently, it has been sold out in all places almost immediately.
Silver and Space Gray is readily available almost everywhere.

Looks and feels awesome!

How much does the iPhone 5s 24k gold edition cost. It's a limited edition. I'm not talking about the regular gold colour.

Howdy Folks!

Need a recommendation for a good case. For the iPhone 5S.

Looking for cases that are soft, and won't scratch the aluminium on the sides.

Leather is not my preferred choice, and would prefer to avoid something that adds a massive bulk to the phone.

Any pointers? Price is not too much of a concern, as long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The cases made by Apple for the 5S are not available yet, so looking for a temporary case.

Thanks in advance! Cheers!

There are many cases available online and in malls, check and see what you like.

Good and protective cases are a must IMHO for an expensive phone, but to be honest very few are willing to spend the money on a protective case/cover for the phone even though they are willing to spend multiple times on the phone itself.

Ahh and one more thing -- Apple doesnt makes any cases, they are made by other product manufacturers, for iphone 5S buy any case which is suitable for 5, its same dimensions isnt it.
