    4G iPod touch
    As of 3pm today I no longer own an iPod Touch. I sold it to a 17 yr old kid who I pointed to this website. He'll be joining you guys with newbie questions and youthful excitement soon.

    However, I am NOT giving up on my work or this site, completely.

    Because...

    Someone gave me a Gen 1 iPhone. It had a small portion of the bottom of the screen which didn't respond to touches so he bought the 3G.

    But the story gets better.

    I take it up to the Apple store and tell them the screen is messed up. I had researched it online and found it was a well known fault. 15 minutes after I get to the Apple store (which I lovingly refer to as the Land of OZ - where everything is magical and happy)...

    The Apple Genius hands me a brand new phone...IN THE BOX. Of course it is STILL the 1st gen phone, but I don't give a crap. It was free. And not a scratch on it!

    So I get home, charge it up, then call AT&T and ask them if I can buy a SIM card. They said they don't sell them...THEY'RE FREE!. I chose the PAYG option. 10 cents(US) per minute. No Plan. No Contract.

    I pick up the SIM card 2 blocks from my house, take it home, jailbreak the iPhone, put the SIM card in...and it friggin works.

    So now I have a brand new 2.5G iPhone with service and without a contract. And to top it all off...EDGE works.

    The point of all this is to show that:

    1. I will still be contributing
    2. I will try to be more active on iPhoneFanatics
    3. PAYG does work with the iPhone
