    Contacts birthdays and calendars...

    Just a quick question. Is there a way to automatically reflect a birthday data added to a contact onto the Calendar? That is, when you add a birthday data to a contact, is it possible for the data to show up as an all-day event saying "XXX's birthday" on the Calendar? TIA, Dai

    Changing the sound for new mail notification?

    Hi. I am wondering if there's a way to change the sound of the new mail notification. I find it odd that you can freely change your ringtone (i.e. the incoming phone call notification), but not the mail notification sound. I'm pretty sure it cannot be done as-is, but I'm wondering if there's an...

    "Simplify Media" application is great! I've just tested the "Simplify Media" application. It lets you listen to your music stored in your home computers remotely on your iPhone. Sure sounds like Apple's Remote app, but Simplify Media has a lot more to offer. It works via 3G/EDGE as well as via Wi-Fi...

    Does Pandora block access from abroad?

    Hi. I have a question about the Pandora application. Several people in Japan have told me that they can't access music through Pandora, getting an error message that says "Unable to sync stations." In the meantime, I've had no such trouble. Does Pandora only allow access from within the U.S.?

    YouTube quality difference between Wi-Fi and 3G?

    Hi. I've noticed that the same YouTube movie shows up with a significantly lower resolution when my iPhone uses 3G compared with when it uses Wi-Fi. I tried three different movies and saw the same pattern in all of them. Is it because the YouTube site has two versions for the iPhone, or does...

    Question about international phone roaming...

    Hi. I supposed I could call AT&T, but I'd rather get help from the kind souls like you than wait on the phone for 20 minutes for a rep who has no idea what he/she's talking about... I live in the U.S. Naturally, my iPhone has a U.S. phone number (206-xxx-xxxx). Now if I took my iPhone abroad...
