you just download the "free case" app from itunes.

then you choose the free case from a big list and they ship it. incase is around 6 weeks lead time though.

Just unlocked my out of contract 3GS to sell. Very easy to do just follow this form. They said it'd take a week or two but actually only took a few hours. http://shop.o2.co.uk/update/unlockmyiphone.html

I want to buy an unlocked iPhone from an apple London store on Friday - can anyone advise how easy this will be? Says first come first served on apple website, do they have them in stock? Do you still have to queue for hours?

Very straightforward. I had the pack of 3 discs, you just load them in order, takes a while though

snow leopard only works on intel processors, check that first.

Snow will not work on a legacy PowerPC processor.

You need Leopard (10.5.Cool which WILL run on a Power PC. Make sure you get the Power PC version though as there is also an Intel version.

1) They provide a liquid solution so if you cock up you can re-apply - Shame they only provide enough so you can apply it once.

2) Air bubbles galore - Tried using the provided squeegee to no avail.

3) Provided squeegee leaves rubber residue/marks all over the protector so your screen will look like it's blurred in certain areas.

4) It doesn't fix the signal issue as stated.

Funny I was looking at this the other day, thinking it's decent. Won't be buying it now!

So you get reception problems, whereabouts are you, you on o2?

Signal is fine, as long as I don't touch the bottom left corner. I got a free bumper from Apple, but it adds a bit of bulk and kind of kills the aesthetics of the phone so I was hoping this Zagg thing would alleviate that problem. $25 down and I was wrong. I've complained and mentioned sections from the 'Sales of Goods Act' (i.e.Not fit for purpose, unsatisfactory, etc), wonder if it'll make'em refund me Laughing out loud

yeah that's exactly why I never have a slip on case always a pouch. always despair when I see someone with an iPhone only to have all covered up. So I thought too that this would be a smashing idea.

25 notes is a lot for something that doesn't work and the fact that doesn't work you should get your money back!

I got the zagg shield, but used a zagg discount code to get 30% off. Fixed the signal problem for me (in swansea)

only if they're streamed via veetle but veetle take down games pretty quick. most of the other ones seems to use flash based streaming but obviously flash isn't supported on the iphone.

sky are doing a deal on the iPhone app where you can watch the content for free until 31st Dec.

one catch I'm pretty sure you have to be a sky sports customer to take advantage of it.

Just got my free case through the door. It's the clear plastic one that protects the back and sides and it isn't too bad. Will get one of those plastic screen protectors and it will be great. Cover didn't arrive wuik enough to stop be dropping it and scratching the back though Sad
