Information  Bittorrent on a mobile phone!
I just got a HTC Wildfire / Android 2.1 with an unlimited mobile Internet plan (flat-rate, no bandwidth limits).

There is actually a Bittorrent client for it, unfortunately, it is not free.

I am going to install it and see if it works.

Clap

US$4.99
+/- 3.35€
+/- £3.05
+/- ¥458.75

Make the most of your unlimited data plan!

aBTC is a full-featured BitTorrent client for Android. Open a bit torrent file to download TV and music mp3 albums straight to your phone! Features DHT and downloading while sleeping. Now with in-app search.

Now that is quite random. I wonder what the capabilities are over a mobile network?

RE: Bittorrent on a mobile phone!
im sure its aweful. i can imagine 50 clients trying raise your IP constantly after you finish the download...only to be bounced back with a "no".

One thing i cant stand about bit torrent clients is their need to hang onto ip addresses. you can have requests from others blasted down to you from hundreds of clients DAYS after you stopped.

Not to mention he ping times associated with "mobile" internet. with all those requests you need to keep sending little bits of data back and forth. cloggs up even a wired dsl. on mobile you are lucky to get a you-tube video to connect. the RF frequencies are going to have to be powerful and close for any reasonable usability and that means baking the population. personally i think most broadband internet should be banned. Its getting noisy out here.

Interesting that this happens, because it shouldn't. Clients are supposed to get regular updates of the IPs in the swarm from the tracker. The tracker is supposed to purge IPs that don't check in. In our case, if a client doesn't refresh within 30 minutes, their IP is discarded. Of course, if the client isn't braindead, when it closes, it is supposed to send a message to the tracker to drop it from the swarms.

Then there is the problem of DHT - if a client is using it then it doesn't check the trackers for swarm info, it uses IP lists from other DHT users, which need to be accurate, but often aren't...

arg its aweful on mine. cuz my ip is static. really sucks. you have to be careful where you dl from.

However even on a good tracker you will have to watch your packets. lots of back and forth with bit torrent.

RE: Bittorrent on a mobile phone!
Have been using abtc for a while now i grabbed a free copy of it though, it is only useful for small files i found. What kind of speed are you getting?
I cant select individual files within a torrent though. For example if a torrent with 2gb of files and i only want a 2mb file from id have to get the whole thing. Sure in time new versions will be released though.
