iOS 4 Officially Out

So I have been using iOS 4 for about a week now, and it’s a nice step forward for the platform. Today it officially came out, and according to Engadget it is the same as the GM release. I have been having trouble with updating my carrier settings to Rogers 7.1 and as a result my data connection is not working. I am now restoring the phone and will not restore the backup I have a feeling that might be the fix. I will update this post if that resolves the problem.

Update: Yes it solved my problem.

I finally got my iPhone today, Here is the screen that I saw in iTunes, Since not many people in North America get to see it I thought I might share. I’m really excited for the 3gs since I got the data plan from Rogers. I will be taking full advantage of the capabilities of the phone and data plan!

Avoid long distance charges with skype

For a while now I have been avoiding long distance charges from Rogers, Fido by using skype. In the states I think there are no long distance for calling another number in the states. However there are for calling Canada and other countries. This tutorial will teach you how to escape these fees by using skype to call numbers in the US, Canada and other countries. Firstly you have to be located in the US or Canada (Trace IP).

1. Go to Skype Subscriptions and buy whichever subscription is appropriate for you.

2.If you want the caller id to display your cellphone number Set it up in Skype Settings

3.To use this on your cellphone you will need a data plan or wifi(does not use much data though). Download iSkoot(Blackberry,Nokia, Windows Mobile) or Fring for iPhone

4. Setup your phone with your skype account, and your number.

5.Whenever you want to make a long distance call, just open the skype application you chose on your phone and dial it from there and save money!
