    this is the ONLY think i miss from the iTouch. i was able to download torrents directly to my iTouch. so far i have only been able to find a remote client that controls the torrents on your computer.

    anyone know of a way to torrent directly to your phone?

    Sucks. Froze my phone for ten minutes, then force closed. Tried twice. Not sure if it's VZW blocking it, as a comment on that site has mentioned, or if it just simply doesn't work. Not wasting time with it, though.

    The problem arises when you start to download a torrent. It opens it fine, it won't start downloading though.

    ya. i saw some comments on there that mentioned some issues finding peers. im going to let it run all night and see what kinda progress its made by morning. if nothing then uninstall. hopefully it works though, this so far has been the only feature that i miss from my old apple days.

    Especially TPB. lol. And even if you were on WIFI, it's certainly not gonna be as fast as a real computer considering read/write speeds are nowhere near the same. So in retrospect, it would be more beneficial, and quicker, for you to download to your computer, then transfer.

    im so scared the FBI is listening in to our forum conversations.

    those dudes are just as understaffed as the rest of the world. they got better things to deal with than me downloading the new coheed and cambria CD before it comes out

    besides...i use peerguardian so either way i dont trip.
