Thread: Who has the new iPhone???

  1. #1

    Cool Who has the new iPhone???

    OK OK OK so you all knew this question would come sooner or later...and sure...maybe somewhere this question has been answered. I couldn't find it.

    Here is my question. I want to get the new iPhone. My concern is not necessarily to sync my music to it, but to make sure it is up to date with the latest and greatest. Is there a way in SuSE to do that???

    Am I completely missing the boat here and that option need not apply? IE, updates over WiFi?

    I have heard that when you connect (sync) with SuSE for media it acts like an external HDD. If so, I should just be able to drag and drop and then sort in the phone....right?

    Lemmie know cuz I really want to get my hands on one and use it with SuSE...it is my default desktop after all....

    Any help would rock

    Thousands and thousands of people have them, and thousands and thousands more have upgraded their old iphones to the new brickphones OS.

    None are able to activate them

    LOL This is true!! But if you remember, last time they had the same problem. I was wondering if I could use all the features of a new iPhone with SuSE

    As for PIM related problems: Funambol seems to have a plugin.

    No need to "hack" or jailbreak the iDevice. openSUSE 11.3 will natively work with iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad devices. Until then one can install related 11.2 packages using the 1-click installer. Read more information and watch a video of the functionality here.

    No iPhone for me. When my current phone breaks I'm going to buy Nokia with MeeGo or Android based phone. They will have no problems with Linux because they are Linux
    openSUSE 11.4 | KDE 4.6
    AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ | 2GB RAM | ATI Radeon HD 3450 | Gigabyte M68SM-S2L | 320 GB HDD

    Given all the bad press that Apple have received for their iEverythings, it would would be a rather chilly day in Hell before I would even consider buying one. The fanbois would have you believe that Apple are the saviour of the universe and it is only heretics and luddites who don't support them but, given the increasing need for Apple to completely control all the software that goes anywhere near their stuff, I think that they are totally suffocating innovation in all manner of areas. Jobs make Bill Gates look like a fluffy bunny.
    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
