Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2009 12:52 PM (in response to ale3is)After being thoroughly confused by this myself, I believe I found the source of the poor image quality: Your cellular service provider is re-encoding the images you load before sending them to you to save bandwidth, but trashing the quality. You should google for instructions for how to disable this with your carrier.Macbook Pro C2D, Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2009 1:23 AM (in response to Charles Conway)This is happening for me on O2 in the UK as well - I spoke to O2 about it, and they say that there's nothing you can do - there IS a trick out there where you change your APN username (under Settings - General - Network - Cellular Data Network) from 'vertigo' to 'bypass', but unfortunately this only works for the iPhone itself - when you use 'bypass' as the username, it disables tethering.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2009 3:37 AM (in response to BlackBookMonster)I like this feature. I'd much rather have the speed than wait for ages for high resolution images to load when it's not really necessary.MacBook 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.7), iPhone 3G
