If you have regularly used the incognito mode on Google Chrome or Private Browsing mode on Firefox, you may be aware that such private browsing functionalities are not available on the Mobile Safari web browser app on your iPhone. Of course, unlike the computer, not too many people will need such features on their mobile phones. But if you are one looking for such a solution, here is an iPhone app for you.

The new Covert app brings a ‘Private Browsing‘ option to Mobile Safari. The functionality can be accessed by tapping on Tabs and selecting the option. While this feature is enabled, the web browser history does not get recorded giving you the feature that had hitherto been missing on the iPhone. Also, during this time, the browser turns grey in order to indicate that you are on a private browsing mode.

Covert is free though it is unfortunately a jailbreak app and is hence available for download only from Cydia.

How To Use FaceTime From Unlocked iPhone 4

As you are probably aware, Apple’s new FaceTime video calling feature does not work on unofficial carriers (like T-Mobile USA). This is because of the way these carriers handle the SMS sent from/to the Gateway for activation of service. So, if you are on an unlocked iPhone 4 looking to use FaceTime, here’s a way […]

As you are probably aware, Apple’s new FaceTime video calling feature does not work on unofficial carriers (like T-Mobile USA). This is because of the way these carriers handle the SMS sent from/to the Gateway for activation of service. So, if you are on an unlocked iPhone 4 looking to use FaceTime, here’s a way to get it done.

PushFix, a jailbroken iPhone app developer has released an iPhone app named MiTime that will help you out in this regard. The application fixes the inherent issue with recognizing the SMS from the gateway so that FaceTime is activated. However, because this procedure will require the developer to send you two international SMSes, the app itself is not priced cheap and is available on the Cydia store for a price of $5.99.

Do note that this app will only work on authorized devices though users from across the world (except Cambodia) can make use of this app to activate FaceTime on their unlocked iPhone 4. Here’s a video on how the process works.

How To Forward iPhone Voicemail To Email?

Carriers like AT&T allow users to access visual voicemail. Visual voicemails are different from the regular ones in that they reside on the phone very much like text messages or emails – you don’t have to listen through all the unheard voicemails at once. Instead, you can surf through the voicemails and tap and listen […]

Carriers like AT&T allow users to access visual voicemail. Visual voicemails are different from the regular ones in that they reside on the phone very much like text messages or emails – you don’t have to listen through all the unheard voicemails at once. Instead, you can surf through the voicemails and tap and listen to the one you need.

Now if your carrier allows visual voicemails, then here is a way to make it possible to forward these voicemails to your email account so that you may access it even without your iPhone in hand. The procedure sadly however needs you to jailbreak your iPhone. Jailbreaking is pretty simple these days with websites like JailbreakMe. If you have the latest version of the iOS, you can rather check out our tutorials on jailbreaking your iPhone. Do however remember that this procedure can void your warranty and could cause serious performance issues on your device and hence proceed at your own peril.

Update : It appears to be incompatible with iOS 4 as of now.

So, if you do end up jailbreaking your iPhone, all you will require to get started on voicemail email forwarding is to download the Voicemail Forwarder app from Cydia. With the app installed, visual voicemails will now carry a button against their listing that can be tapped to fire up an email with the current voicemail tagged as an attachment. You can access these files now from any internet connected computer.

The app costs $2.99 on the Cydia store. It is not clear if the app is compatible with the latest iPhone 4 though.

Jailbreak iOS 4.0.2 On iPhone 3GS With PwnageTool

If you own an iPhone 3GS with the old bootrom and have already upgraded to iOS 4.0.2 that disables the popular JailbreakMe.com exploit, then PwnageTool just makes it possible for you to jailbreak your device once again.

If you own an iPhone 3GS with the old bootrom and have already upgraded to iOS 4.0.2 that disables the popular JailbreakMe.com exploit, then PwnageTool just makes it possible for you to jailbreak your device once again. Of course, this is not the only solution. I had also recently written about the alternate fix from RedSn0w for users on iOS 4.0.2.

Before you proceed though, remember to backup all the contents of your iPhone via iTunes. Also, do note that this is an unofficial release and may contain bugs. So, it’s not advisable to do it if you are not savvy to take care of complications yourselves. Also note that jailbreaking shall void your warranty and so you are going to do this at your own peril.

Update: Some readers have commented that the process doesn’t seem to work. Do note that this is an unofficial release and is likely to have issues. So, proceed if you are still keen to give it a try.

So here’s what you’ve got to do

  • Launch PwnageTool. You will be asked to pick your device. Click iPhone 3GS
  • The appropriate firmware will be automatically selected from the desktop. If not do it manually
  • When asked “Do you have an iPhone contract that would activate normally through iTunes?“, specify NO. This is for those of you who also have unlocked devices. Those users on officially supported carriers like AT&T may choose YES
  • PwnageTool will now build the custom .IPSW firmware. When it’s done, you will be displayed a message that reads, ‘ihaz success
  • Now, connect your iPhone to iTunes and while pressing the alt/shift button on your keyboard, click on your iPhone model on the iTunes sidebar. Choose to “Restore” your device and specify the firmware saved in the computer desktop
  • iTunes will now restore your iPhone with the custom firmware. The process will take several minutes. Once the process is complete, the iPhone should reboot.

This completes the jailbreak process.

How To Enable Tethering On iPhone

If you are in the United States, there is a legal way to enable tethering on your iPhone – subscriber to the DataPro plan from AT&T and sign up for the $20 a month tethering fee.

If that sounds costly, you can alternately use a jailbreak iPhone utility to enable tethering. That’s going to cost pretty less if you are still on an unlimited data plan – just $1.99. TetherMe is a utility available on Cydia that will help you achieve this. What the application basically does is to tell the iPhone to allow tethering on any APN that is used for the iPhone data. Consequently, you will not be charged extra since it is seen as being accessed from the phone itself.

Additionally, the utility will also allow you to bypass signature checking. This is especially useful if you are unlocked to T-Mobile and want to enable MMS functionality. TetherMe works on iOS 3.X and iOS 4.X devices. Since this is technically not an app, you will not see a trace of it being available on the Home screen. You can instead change settings by navigating to Settings -> General -> Network and toggling the tethering settings.
