    Is bluetooth supposed to be this bad?

    I was considering buying a set of stereo bluetooth headphones when I won a set donated to a local charity by Jabra :) I believe the model I have is the Jabra Sport. Unfortunately, their performance is barely acceptable. They seem to work almost line of sight... If I set the phone down and walk...

    What is the best car kit for bluetooth audio streaming?

    I am looking for a car kit to wirelessly stream audio from my iPhone. I will be using the line in on my car stereo. It needs a microphone, mainly to use Siri.

    Can I sync my new iPhone without activating it?

    It's going to be tough but I think I am going to wait until I get a case before I take my iPhone 4 into the wild. Can I sync it with iTunes without activating it? Can I use the same backup for both my new and old phone so it will be up to date when I am ready to use it?

    WTF - Playlists that start with a symbol now sort LAST.

    I use symbols at the beginning of my favorite playlists to make them show up first. Like >-: etc. Now these playlist show up last :mad: Is there any way to change this? Any work around? Starting playlists with AAA looks stupid and is distracting. I guess I could use a symbol in front of...

With google maps all I see is a blue dot in a blank area, not as helpful as...

    I am looking for a case that will allow me to physically secure my iPhone 3g like this . I have seen the one by targus and it not only blocks the dock connector port, it does not look like it would slow down a determined 3 year old...

    Itrip autopilot FM transmitter sucks, did I get a bad one?

    I recently bought an iTrip Autopilot FM transmitter for my iPhone and it performs very poorly. I have a Belkin FM transmitter that blows it away in a side by side comparison.

    Strange smart Playlist behavior, and track -2147483648 of 9.

    I mainly use two types of smart play lists, for my podcasts 'Play count is 0' so podcasts drop off the list as I listen to them. For my music I use nested play lists by least recently played to keep music I haven't heard in a while in the list. When I listen to podcasts and return to the...

    What 'free' At&t Phone has the highest resale value?

    As I understand it signing up to AT&T with an iPhone requires a 2 year contract but changing to an iPhone does not extend it. To me the obvious thing to do is get a 'free with contract phone' and the sell it to offset the cost of the iPhone, then switch the sim card over. Any Problem with this...

    Does the iPhone work with the TuneFM transmitter by Belkin? Are there any transmitters that it will work with? How well does it work with an FM transmitter with phone mode still on?
