Is the iPhone making its way to TELUS?

HowardForums’ member “RileyFreeman” is reporting that that TELUS will be launching the iPhone in October.  The leak is courtesy of “… a(n) executive at Telus.”  The iPhone would be launched on the HSPA network that is going to be completed around September, not the current CDMA network.


What do you think-is TELUS going to score the iPhone when the HSPA launches later this year?  Leave your thoughts below.

Shh-Don’t Tell AT&T

Although AT&T does not officially support tethering your iPhone (running OS 3.0) to you computer does not mean you can’t, MacMegaSite has found around the carrier restriction.  This workaround is only compatible with a Mac, sorry PC users.


1. Download the carrier update file. Then extract it. (file hosted at

2. Launch the Terminal app and type the following command:

defaults write carrier-testing -bool TRUE

3. Now launch iTunes. In the iPhone window,  hold the Option key while clicking Restore. Then select the ipcc file in the disk image you downloaded and click OK.

4. iTunes will update the carrier settings. Now under General settings, tap the Network tab and an internet tethering option should appear. From there on, you should be able to easily tether the iPhone via Bluetooth or USB.

Fido to Sell “Refreshed” iPhones

Fido, a subsidiary of Rogers Communications Inc., has started to sell previous used iPhones through the loyalty and retention department.  Refreshed iPhones were purchased and returned within the first 15 days of use.

Pricing for the “refreshed” iPhones is as follows:
$149 – 8GB on 3-year term
$249 – 16GB on 3-year term


Only customers on a price plan before the relaunch of the Fido brand (November 4, 2008) are able to get these “refreshed” iPhones.  Also note, “refreshed” iPhones only have a 6 month warranty, not the full 12 months that new ones do.

Game Boy iPhone Case


This could be possibly one of the coolest iPhone 3G cases we have seen yet.  “That Girl” over at That Girl’s Site snapped this shot on a recent trip to Japan.  As you can see in the photo, the clear hard plastic case is snaps onto the rear of the iPhone-looks good on the white model, not sure what it would look like on the black one.

No word on where you can purchase your own-if you know post a comment below.
