Unlock iPhone SIM PIN Lock without Restart

Enabling the SIM PIN lock on your iPhone is a great way to minimize unwanted charges on your calling plan in case you lose your phone. If anyone other than yourself gets a hold of your phone, they will be able to use it until the power goes out. After that, even if they charge it, they will need to enter in your SIM PIN code to use the phone again (at least with your SIM card).

Unfortunately the request for the SIM PIN is fleeting and requires your full attention as you power on the phone. After waiting for the Apple logo to disappear you need to be ready to high that “Unlock” button and enter in your code, otherwise the dialog disappears you end up not being able to make calls or connect to your network unless you restart to bring it up again. I’ve found a simple way to unlock the SIM PIN without having to restart the iPhone. Read more »

Fees for heavy Internet use “inevitable”, says AT&T

/* Posted June 16th, 2008 at 11:13am [Comments: 2]    */
/* Filed under News    */

AT&T representative Michael Coe has said the company believes it is “inevitable” that heavy Internet users will eventually have to pay some sort of surcharge for the extra bandwidth demand placed on the network.

The ISP along with other providers have been seeing a huge surge in traffic for its DSL services, which can be attributed to a small group of users. Coe added that only 5 percent of customers are currently accounting for 46 percent of overall bandwidth used per month. These users may need to be charged extra. Read more »

Verizon shuts down access to Usenet

/* Filed under News    */

Verizon has announced that they will be stopping access to tens of thousands of Usenet discussion areas including the very popular alt.* groups that have been around since the late 1980s.

Verizon spokesman Eric Rabe said only a select few newsgroups/discussion groups would be offered to customers going into the future. It appears the decision is in response to political “strong-arming” from New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo who wants strong restrictions on all newsgroups. Read more »


3G iPhone to sell for 1 euro in Germany

/* Filed under Apple, iPhone    */

T-Mobile has announced today that they will be offering the new 8GB 3G iPhone for 1 euro (about $1.50 USD) in Germany when purchased with a 69 euro monthly contract for 2 years.

Since Apple has dropped its insistence on revenue sharing and made the phone available non-exclusively in over 70 countries worldwide, carriers now have the option to subsidize the cost of the phone in an effort to lock the consumer into expensive data plans for long periods of time.

The original iPhone, which went on sale last June, sold six million units despite high prices and carrier exclusivity deals so at least on the outside it appears the 3G model will sell better.

T-Mobile added that the 8GB model would cost 170 euro if bought with the minimal data plan, of 29 euro a month and that the price would range between those prices for other data plans.

The 16GB model will sell for similar but with a range of 19.95-249.95 euros.


Pricecut for 60GB Xbox 360 Pro coming at E3?

/* Posted June 16th, 2008 at 10:57am [Comments: 3]    */
/* Filed under Hardware, Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox    */

Last week we reported that analyst Jesse Divnich had said he strongly expects either a price cut or a model introduction of the Microsoft Xbox 360 before or at the E3 event.

According to new sources, it appears Divnich will be right and there will be a new model introduced at E3. If the claims are to be believed, the oft-rumored 60GB Xbox 360 Pro will emerge and replace the 20GB HDD model when it begins shipping in August.

It was unclear whether there would be a price cut as well or the addition of more HDD capacity for other 360 models.
