After 7‑hours of hard work (standing in-line and being back at my pad from Apple Store Emeryville), the SMS Texting feature on my iPhone 3G doesn’t seem to work. At first, I thought it was an iPhone 3G issue.
Since opening the box, and activating ate with Genius Hugh’s help, it hasn’t been shutdown at all. So I tried re-powering it thinking that it might solve the issue and have SMS updated and turned on. That didn’t work.
The next step I then took was to call 611 and filtered on to iPhone support. After about 30-minutes of hold time I was finally able to get through and talk to a tech. Seconds later, I was told that it possibly is on AT&T’s side and was transferred to the AT&T After-hours Support Line 866–801-3600
That’s the first thing that I got from an automated answering machine Op (as if I haven’t waited enough). Anyways, the tech support person was able to review it and it seems that the SMS plan activation never made it, even though it says I have/am on for the 1500 monthly plan.
That did it regardless. So, I hope this helps out people who happen to be in the same boat.
It seems like the current Software Update nullified my tweak (YMMV). I think this might be helpful as most of the results showed only how to “disable sleep when the lid is closed” vs. disabling wake on lid open.
Anyways, to do so, do the following in your Terminal (Application > Utilities > Terminal.app):
Check current state (i.e. “lidwake”):
$ pmset -g
$ sudo pmset -a lidwake 0
Or put it back to normal (re-enable):
$ sudo pmset -a lidwake 1
Check the current state again to verify (i.e. “pmset ‑g”). You shouldn’t have to restart. I hope that helps. Would’ve saved me a couple of minutes for sure.
Meanwhile, my first impression of Skitch in adding it to my workflow of documenting sites/design snippets is pretty good. The auto upload feature to Flickr alone is good. I just hope it provides another feature, well a couple:
Tags, Title, and Description dialogue/input-box
and a way to just specify a URL so Skitch can take a screenshot of the actual page itself
With the latter, what I am trying to say is that currently, I still use Paparazzi to grab the actual webpage, and then “copy (the) image” into Skitch’s canvas to upload it to Flickr; at least I haven’t found out a way for Skitch can do it automatically as I’ve only spent 10-minutes on it so far.
Anyways, Skitch is providing to be better than I expected; especially when I need to do snippets vs whole webpages. I guess the only application I can compare it is with ScrnShots.com’s tool, ScrnShot Desktop. However, I would give point to Skitch as it can just upload to your Flickr account and others, while you’re just stuck with having it ScrnShots (respectively).
PS. I do give a point to ScrnShots.com’s tool as it work with Windows as well.
