Reading files in your iPhone

What's nice about the iPhone, it supports files like word doc, pdf, text, excel and html. But unlike the other phones, iPhone doesn't have a file manager.

I had to install Apache, scp to iPhone with u:root and p:dottie credentials and move the stuff to /Library/WebServer/Documents/ to access the files. Then, access /<filename.ext>. Note that your iPhone has to be unlocked before doing so.

It works fine but I think a file manager would still be better.

Update (12/11/07 11:31): This also applies to iPod. See howtos in the internet on how to unlock it.

Update (12/06/08 3:06): You can try "alpine" as your password if dottie is not working.
