"Want to break the 10MB limit for downloading podcasts over 3G on the iPhone? It's easy, and I'm going to tell you how to do it.

The iPhone's recent 2.2 firmware enabled over-the-air downloading of podcasts, either by using 3G or Wi-Fi. The only problem is that if you use 3G, you're limited to shows 10MB in size, or less -- and most are often considerably more.

There is, however, a workaround. At least, there sort of is. Safari is a fairly full-featured Web browser, and can play MP3 files natively. And as it allows you to play files before they've finished downloading, it makes it quick and simple to use it as an on-the-fly podcast downloader.
