what phone do you have?  There are apps for the iPhone that will soon allow you to view your wallet.

haha, i highly doubt that.

Why would you doubt it?

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

Not worth it but you can use bitp.it and put it on a HTML page and load up that HTML page a few times.

Six cents per month at the current level of difficulty. Four cents per month from the day after tomorrow. From the generation calculator.

Apple won't allow it, it's been done before.

It would kill your phone, my HTC Desire costs £35 a month for 18 months so no point wasting all that money for getting a few pounds worth of BTC lol

CPU mining even on a desktop PC is a no-win game. You pay more for power than you get in BTC. Unless you have your PC running 24/7 anyways it's not worth it.

On a smart phone it's even worse because now you have to charge your phone every hour and it's not as efficient as your desktop CPU.

... this can't be a serious question that requires serious answers.
It sounds like a reasonable question to me.

But there's no point mining on a smartphone. Running bitcoind on my Nokia N900 yields 0.13 Megahashes/second. On average that would generate a block once every 335445 days (about once every thousand years).

You might do slightly better on a smartphone with a GPU, but the next difficulty increase due in a few days will take care of that. The GPU on a smartphone is nothing like the GPU on a 5870 card.

Where do I find a mining app for my N900 phone? How to setup mining? I wish to complement what I already have in mining ability.I know the implications of mining on a phone so  please don't debate with me about that as I am aware but I choose to experiment and use auch an app on my N900.CPU id OC'd from 600MHz to 1150MHz.Now if only there was a GPU miner for Nokia N900 phone.Also how to overclock N900s GPU to speed up GUI?

Has there been any update to CPU mining in smartphones? I don't care about any debate about cost vs mining from a phone. I don't pay for any of it. I would be happy submitting 5 shares an hour if it meant me getting them for free.

There is (was?) a LTC miner available for Android, beta but worked.

Even if you could get it to work ... you would have SO many problems.

Heat, because you have no vent.  Speed, it would take you a year to mine one BTC probably.  Value, your phone probably costs 600 dollars.

I'm not trying to re-coup the cost of my phone and charging it would be done at work as in I planned to only use it while I mined at work.

I've already got back what I paid for my phone through use of the services it provides me with daily.

The LTC miner is not on the marketplace. There are no miners on the marketplace sadly. :0P

I also though about doing it while I drove places in my car. I'm already running my A/C and the charge will be fine because of my cars motion and battery warranty.

I planned to remove at least the back cover while mining, but was going to gauge it if it worked out.

You could try contact the dev:
http://simrandev.com/  or   https://github.com/Simran

I however got a feeling that he canned the project.

Of course everyone would love to go around knowing to have a money generator in pocket  Grin

But it's not even worth the headaches to set it up -even if you have free hardware and electricity. I tried for some time to run the bitcoinplus web java miner, both on my pc (both it and electricity are paid by the university) and on my website's visitors', but I've stopped it since I probably wouldn't even have reached the 0,02 BTC (minmum amount to cash out, and 0,01 BTC is fee) this year... and 0,02 BTC is an amount I hope to find laughable soon now that I am on GLBSE  Wink
