Although I often hear reports about how many people have Jailbroken their iPhones (meaning they “hacked” their iPhone so they can install 3rd party applications), I’ve yet to meet ANYONE else with a hacked one.

Anytime I use my phone in front of someone, they are immediately impressed and wowed by the amount and variety of applications, it’s custom look, and the enhanced functionality added to my iPhone (well… and the Otterbox, but I’ve covered that already).

Instead of breaking it down time-after-time, explaining what every application does, I’m using this forum to explore all details of my phone – page by page; app by app (except the pre-installed ones).

My iPhone came installed with firmware 1.1.3. I’ve jailbroken it a couple times, but the last time I used ZiPhone (I’ve also used iNdependence, iJailbreak, and jailbreakme.com). ZiPhone is especially nice because (if it works correctly) it installs a program called “installer.app” — the gateway to most iPhone applications.

I currently have 5 pages on my phone:

Page 1 : Frequently used apps
Page 2 : Less frequently used apps
Page 3 : Springdial phone numbers
Page 4 : System Tools / Tweaks
Page 5 : Games

Today I’ll be showing you Page 1 : Frequently Used Applications

I’m going to show you how to use some lesser known features of iCal and 1Password to AUTOMATICALLY launch your web browser, open a specific web site, and login to the site – at a specific time or recurring date.

Every other morning I post my computer repair ad on Craigslist. The earlier the better on Craigslist, so I like to have it ready and waiting for me when I wake up. You may want to have your bank account, stock portfolio, and myspace page open every morning; or your cable provider, electric company, and car insurance page open when it’s time to pay your bills.

You can drag-and-drop an e-mail message from Mail into iCal, but only in iCal’s Month view! I wish I would have tried this sooner, but I never use month view.

Drag-and-dropping into Month view creates an event with the Mail message link/alias that, with one click, opens my e-mail message in Mail. Perfect for setting a reminder to read an e-mail at a specific day/time.
