iPhone Hotspot

Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another
    platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    The movements are hard to keep track of unless you
    have developed codes and symbols for a particular movement.

  10. I have an older computer That is not wifi compatible. is there any way you can hook up your iPhone and use it to get Internet to the computer (I am in my house and there is wifi my computer just can not use it)

  11. And so I have to comment here as I did elsewhere, if you are using 1GB of data on your phone, you are entitled/have paid for that usage, what is the difference if you view that 1GB of data on your phone, or send it wirelessly to your computer for easier viewing?  It’s still 1GB.  As I wrote elsewhere, if I bought a small can of spaghetti and paid for it, what difference if I eat it from a teacup or a mixing bowl?  It’s still just that one can of spaghetti and it didn’t somehow become a gallon of spaghetti instead of a small can just because I’m eating it out of a different dish.

    FYI if you do jailbreak your phone you can add additional sources that will allow you to get mywi for free. Rather then list them here for you its easier to google “top sources to add to cydia” Also I don’t believe making it a hot spot is illegal. The only part of jail breaking that is illegal is downloading things for free that you normally would pay for I.e. apps, movies, music etc. Apple went to court over this and they ruled that freeing your phone is not illegal. The link provided above for jail breaking iPhone will not work for those using version 5.0 or highe so when you go to the link just go to that page on your PC and go to bottom of page and click the link to see more ways to jailbreak your phone. You will need your computer and iDevice USB cable. Once you select the correct version (you can find out which version you have through settings then about) be sure to READ THE DIRECTIONS ENTIRELY before starting. There is a button sequence you will need to know about ahead of time. After cydia installs make sure you add winterboard from the cydia.

  13. Just some info to think about… Im in a campground where there are numerus hotspot networks running speeds from 54mbps “which is what my Android Verizon HS is running” to 144mbps on various other phones/networks…HOWEVER this may be interesting to some of you folks…   Im picking up ONE network thats running a solid 300mbps on the latest Att Iphone HS  “hotspot”     I didnt think it was possible to run that kind of speed on a cellphone HS of any kind…  but folks its out there…it sorta makes me want to buy another Iphone on Att and add the HS data feature.. mmmm   Im WGA@aol.com if you have any questions or comments    have a good week

  15. Wait so I have unlimited data. And if I go the illegal route to making my phone a hotspot does that mean it will still strew with my data thing. Or i forgot it only if I go the legal route?? I’m not sure if you meant if I make it a hot spot either way I’ll forfeit my unlimited data thing????

      If you jailbreak it nothing changes with your carrier. They don’t know what goes on with your phone. They only know the legal way cause your asking them to make change for you.

  16. someone help me i downloaded mywi 4.0 cracked and now it messed up my wifi (i cant go on any networks) i’ve deleted it and rebooted but NOTHING HAPPENED

    Jailbreaking the iPhone DOES void the warranty. It happened to me a year ago when someone sold me a jailbroken iPhone and then I needed to try nd get it fixed. It was well within warranty age but the Mac “Genius” wouldn’t do it because the phone had been jailbroken. He sited the reason being that Jailbreaking phones void warranty.

      Well you shouldn’t take it into apple jail broken…you have to unjail break it first. It’s completely irreversible. I mean….it’s common sense.

      Dude, put the phone down, slowly back away, and try not to touch anything sharp on your way out the door. Now run down the street, look for a brick wall, run as fast as you can and try to break through it using your big thick dumb head.

      By the way, did the two thousand misspellings in the article rub off on you posters???

    • Maynardgrohl

      are you sure that every single person that works for Apple knows everything, and that everything that that one rep told you was correct? I swear. People assume that these people know everything. its just like when someone comes into my store and says, AT&T told me that i could do __________… and i say, im sorry thats not true. the person you spoke to was incorrect. their reply is, “well, AT&T said it.” no you idiot, AT&T didnt say it. One person told you that.  Yes he represents the company, but that doesnt mean that there arent new people in training every day that dont necessarily know everything.

  18. i downloaded this application via cydia ..and it was installed ..but when i restarted iphone didnt turn on again and freezed what should i do now ?

  19. If the cellular carrier realizes that I’m using my phone as a hotspot and begins billing me, will I loose my unlimited date plan that I was grandfathered into?

  20. I don’t believe even wifi hotspot is hard with those Iphones…
    (I am now reseachig if possible to migrate to ihpone and to keep my htc sensation funcionality. Result: negative, I have to live with much less functionality….)
