  1. Please let us know if it works with the iPhone because it has been reported at http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/
    on reported not working and being finickey with the iPhone 3Gs. The FAQ link seems to say it should work but kind of leave it up to using the correct batteries.

    At any rate I ask because I got the mintyboost from adafruit for my Daughter and she put it together yesterday. It’s working great for her ipod but not sure yet if it will work for an iPhone. We don’t have an iPhone yet but it might be on a wish list or two.

  2. Todd, original iPhones original and 3G have been tested to work. 3Gs were somehow modified to be pickier and some customers say it does not work. ipods work just fine.

  3. Thanks.
    You going to be working on the 3Gs to pin down the issue, if any? I don’t have one but most poeple I work with have the 3Gs and they would like to know.

  4. we’ll check it out.
