iPhone: mod, BattleFleet

In brief: One iPhone customer recently discovered that prepaid SIM cards are permanently bound to one particular phone, one user has modded an iPhone by replacing all of Apple's default icons with custom designs, a Web developer has released BattleFleet for iPhone, and the iPhoneWx weather application is updated with performance improvements as well as an interface style that matches the iPhone's native programs. Prepaid iPhone users are stuck with just one iPhone and cannot switch devices for any reason, according to one wary customer. "If you activated an iPhone with a new AT&T prepaid plan, you must keep using that iPhone. You cannot replace that iPhone with another iPhone." The decision was made by both Apple and AT&T, which both say that the restriction is a security precaution.

iPhone mod

One iPhone owner has successfully modded an iPhone using a set of online instructions, replacing all of Apple's default icons with custom items. The mod even changes the AT&T text at the top of the screen, but maintains the cell tower and Wi-Fi connectivity states.



BattleFleet, iPhoneWx

A Web developer has released BattleFleet for iPhone, a new revision of the classic BattleShips that is playable via the iPhone's touch-screen interface.... The iPhoneWx weather application for iPhone is revised with performance improvements as well as an interface style that matches the iPhone's native applications; the software can track weather for up to 20 locations and display up to 20 weather maps/images.
