All BBC and ITV channels (and channel 5 but no ones ever that desperate)

Would love to know if this works down under, needs 3g but very good quality streaming. My account allows unlimited internet access so its free of charge.

Last time I tried Urbanspoon there wasn't a lot of Australian content on it. Has it improved much?

Doesn't work on 3G or Wi-Fi. iPhone has built in VPN support though and would probably work okay with that.

You just need to install the desktop Documents to Go application and then run it at the same time as the Documents to Go app is running on the iPhone. Then just drag and drop and hit the Sync button.

Fairly simple free way here.

Thanks for those. I use DtoG all the time on my Palm so it sounds pretty much the same. I was anxious that it would involve clouds in some way like the Palm Pre has ended up doing.

Will check out toodledo as well. I was surprised that iphone didnt come loaded with a task manager

Yep and it works well, but you need a car charger becuase it runs down the battery.
And depending on the car you have to mount the phone on the dash to get a strong signal.

They just did an upgrade and it now goes online to download speed camera info

I've got Sygic on mine. It was on discount one week for $59AUD so I ponied up. I think it's a great app, but it gets lousy reviews on many sites. Mind you, those are all prior to a recent massive update that added traffic updates, speed cameras and all sorts of cool downloadable goodies. I have a TomTom Go 720 in the car as well and I prefer the Sygic to the TomTom which takes a frigging eternity to lock on (five minutes start up time at best with clear skies). I had the TomTom mobile maps on my old Windows Smartphone and I thought that sucked too. I think TomTom products are the most over-rated and over-priced in the GPS market.

I get a 1GB quota with Virgin (Optus) and about $560 of phone credit for $79 per month.

Yea, I can get 5Gb for a fairly reasonable fee on Optus down here, but there's sweet F.A. reception round these parts. If you want a 3G connection of any sort in the regions, it's basically Telstra or nothing.

I dont have any trouble with that - maybe there was something that needed to be enabled? It would be worth giving them a call because you should be able to do it without any problems.
