When my iPod arrived I looked at jailbreaking it because I wanted the mail app amongst others that weren’t on it. I added a couple of games and was well chuffed.
I’ve now upgraded to 1.1.3, only to find out that the applications that were supposedly in the upgrade aren’t free. So I have the free version of 1.1.3 but to get Mail etc I need to pay £12.99. However if I was able to I could purchase the US upgrade for $19.99 dollars which according to google is £10 rather than £13 – now ok £3 isn’t a big deal but it’s the middle of the month most people aren’t paid for another 2 ish weeks.
If they make upgrades like this every few months is it going to have worked out better to buy an iPhone from eBay where i would have recieved the upgrades for free.
