After a brief hiatus, I’m back with Ask Jeff: Episode 09. In this episode I answer tons of questions ranging from data usage monitoring, to Twitter clients, to possible Siri ports.

A lot has changed since Episode 08. iOS 5 was released, iCloud launched, the iPhone 4S launched, and much, much, more.

Was your question answered? There’s only one way to find out: head inside and tune in to the latest episode…

We hope you enjoyed this week’s episode. I’ve tried to keep things as technical as possible, although you guys still love asking me auxiliary questions!

Be sure to checkout the full backlog of Ask Jeff episodes, and don’t forget to submit your question below.

    hay jeff! just wanted to add to the data usage q.
    if you are jailbroken the SBSettings toggle called ‘data usage’ now lets you set the roll-over date and the amount of data you have for your plan from the Settings app.

    pretty useful. although im always a bit skeptical about how accurate the native or 3rd party data usage methods really are cuz they all say something different every time. but thats just me.

    keep answering jeff!

    Jeff, in your video you showed that the battery percentage for the iPod is built into usage, but it’s not there by default. Is there a way to get it there without jailbreaking?

    • dudester

      when jailbreaking you have to select battery percentage…..i didn’t and i don’t have it either. Jeff did you checkmark the battery percentage in redsnow?

  • John Nguyen

    Hey Jeff!! Do you know how to put contact picture on the top right when you calling??

  • Hey Jeff, in posts that I’ve seen from you on iDB, the screenshots have an IPhone around theme. I was wondering how you did this. Is it a jailbreak tweak, or do you do it in photoshop?

    • I believe it’s a stock iPhone frame image that’s been layered on top of the screenshot in Photoshop.

  • Telejeesus

    Why no news about how iPhone 4 screws you when winter time comes???
    At least my iP4 iOS 4.3.3 JB DID NOT change the clock. Then I did it manually and ALL calendar meetings went 1h too early 🙁

  • jbudke

    Jeff, All these iOS 5 jailbreak tweeks are cool and all, but really how many people beyond tweek developers are running an iPhone with jailbroken iOS 5? I’m still running 4.2.1 with the greenp0ison jailbreak. I have no intention of going to iOS 5 until the untethered jailbreak gets created.

  • Karan

    Hey jeff!
    I have a weird problem. After updating my iPhone 4 to ios 5 I’m not able to use iMessage. In my friends iPhone there is a setting in message as “mms settings” which is missing in my phone!
    I don’t know what to do? Or how to solve it…
    Any help would be appreciated…!! 🙂
