But let me step back a second and explain.
According to the many terms and conditions (T&Cs) I’ve agreed to down the year I, and most likely you, are indulging in alleged criminal behaviour. Let me give you an example or two.
- Have you ever bought a CD and then copied t to tape or even your MP3 player? Yes. Then you’re a criminal.
- What about your iPhone / iTouch. Have you jailbroken it? Then yes, you’ve just broken the law again.
- Ever bought a DVD? Then ripped it to place on your media player? Guess what? … You’re a criminal.
But in reality, occasions like this are highly unlikely to get you arrested, let alone face a judge or fine. These are some of the many absurd ‘restrictions’ that companies place in their T&Cs.
But, I digress.
My main reason for this is to reveal that I ‘jailbroke’ my iPhone. There are any number of reasons I’ve done it but to obtain “pay for apps” for free is not one of them.
And here’s one of those reasons: WiCarrier.
Simply put, it displays the name of the WiFi network your iPhone / iTouch is connected too. Why is this so necessary when I can drop into settings and see the same name there? It isn’t but it does make life that one step easier and adds to my security at a glance that I am actually connected to the local coffee house’s network and not some hacker hotspot.
If you want this tweak then fire up your Cydia app and search it out – install and job done.
What about you?
Are you a criminal too?
I promise I won’t hold it against you.
