My 3GS has been terrible these last few weeks. It drops almost half of all calls, it loses reception entirely for minutes in areas which should be brilliant (2G vs 3G also makes no difference). And I've had to do a full restore twice in the time.

I am looking forward to using this new version!!!

I'd like to run a SIP VoIP client in the background.

But I'd much rather Apple's standard dialing app had SIP built in, so outgoing calls could be routed via either mobile or VoIP, with all the niceties of an Apple app.

No I just don't care for Windbags that feel a forum is a means of expressing their journalistic wanna be articles. Adult enough for you.

Android & Palm are free OS updates over the air. See how simple that is?

Are you living in one of the others where HSPA+ is being deployed? http://www.cellphonenews2.com/storie...g_to_HSPA.html

Somehow the announcement by AT&T for rollout of HSPA+ into those markets seems to coincide rather closely with the AT&T 5.6 profile update.

No... No I'm pretty sure its your router, dude. I have two linksys routers at home, one WPA 2 and the other an isolated WEP (for older computers only). Both of them work just fine on my iPhone and have been for a year and a half now.

However, my friend's router, about two years old with outdated firmware, drops my iPhone like crazy. It sometimes even does it on a laptop.

I'm fairly confident that its your router.

Lets see if it fixes the 'no content' bug which appeared with the last update, and the hideously jerky scrolling on the podcast list.

Do they charge over the air too? Because if not, sounds like you still have to plug your phone in every night like every other phone user in the world.

Lucky you. Gonna get HSPA+ before the rest of us.

On that note though, I have to ammend my previous suggestion that the update enables HSPA+. It appears that both 3GS and 3G users are getting the new carrier file (5.6). Since the 3G does not support HSPA+, and also considering that quickpwn is reporting that the baseband is the same, then I guess that means there's some other reason for the carrier file update. A lot of writers/bloggers suggesting something to do with VOIP on 3G...

I agree. I have a harder time attaching to different models of different routers since 3.0. I can no longer attach to my parent's router since 3.0 and above and my signal strength varies heavily in my apt using an AEBS. I can have one bar of signal sitting on my couch not even 7 ft. away from the router and then the next second have full bars. While it did vary with anything below 3.0, not nearly as much. There could be environmental issues or interference from neighbors as well, but who knows.

I've found for 2 or 3 routers I use regularly, it simply doesn't connect reliably (last 2 months or so?).

Always, going into wifi, telling it to "forget this connection", then re-connecting will get me a connection that lasts a while. Not sure if new update fixes this.

(ps. just on a call on 3G and had it drop out with new update. I have switched to 2G and had 2 calls, no prob YET)

I know that techstud is a bit abrasive and at times less than knowledgeable but that doesn't mean you have to ignore his highlighting real user concerns. User multitasking of apps is one of those features that many could leverage positively. Mote importantly it doesn't impact those that don't need it one bit.

Thank you Dave- I would never buy that plasticy thingy so don't worry.See I take a lot of pictures and constantly am launching and relaunching apps. It would so easy to just back-swipe and get to my last opened app. An update for that now rather than next June would be a real deal sealer for many converts. Everybody on here says "It's already available, Apple just need to unleash it"- I say walk the walk don't just talk the talk.

I hope this update does fix the freezing problems. My iPhone went into some dark, death-like coma a few days ago. I was sure it just died, it wasn't responding to anything. But, then I tried the hard reboot buttons and it came back to life. wtf?

Now if only Apple would fix all the problems they introduced into the last update to OS X Leopard. My iMac is like a Dell lately. It has to be rebooted once a day, otherwise, it become sluggish and weird shit happens, like Finder decides to restart in the middle of editing a Photoshop file.

And before someone decides to be a smart-ass and tell me to buy a Dell or a Pre....save your vitriol for someone else, like perhaps, tekstud.

Because if Apple doesn't, I will be sadly in the market for a phone from a different company (can't say I would miss ATT much though).

by most accounts, these other smart phones are prone to more crashes than the iPhone. I'll take the stability of the latter, any day. so i have to wait at the most 30 seconds to finish what i am doing, then reply to an SMS? zomg, it's the end of the world!!

multi-tasking between, for example, my japanese dictionary and the pdf notes on my iDisk would be handy, but i'm not crying on the internet every day in every thread i post in about it, now am i?

I for one am happy with the iPhone and it's gradual rate of development rather than cramming in too much, too soon.

fwiw, i never use MMS, never have as it is an absolute rip-off. i just email photos from my phone - same on my old nokia and NEC phones prior to getting an iPhone.

You actually have the audacity to give that response after the ***** that OS 3.0 has been since day one.
You really need to apply as an Apple Tech Support person because you actually believe the line of crap you just spewed.

Better yet, Apple's marketing department. Just give them a little and keep them wanting and paying for more with the "NEXT" phone.

3.1 broke my WiFi and it's still busted under 3.1.2. Can't connect to any WiFi hotspot. It won't even detect the hotspots around my home any more, where before it would fine 2-3 every time.

Disappointed...

After updating, there is a dialog box asking permission to update the carrier settings. This is different than the carrier settings that enabled MMS.

I had been having trouble with my visual voicemail (read: it stopped working completely) after enabling tethering and then updating to 3.1. I eventually deleted the mobileconfig file I downloaded from benm.at, and visual voicemail was working again. Of course, tethering was gone, but my visual voicemail was more important. Now, I've updated to 3.1.2 and applied the carrier settings afterward. Believe it or not, the tethering option is back! Does this mean AT&T will be enabling tethering very soon? I have yet to try it out, but it is interesting.

I've used Channel 11 for years. That's not it. I'm literally 10 feet from my Wireless N router. It won't even detect it or any other WiFi near my house. It's totally borked.

You don't have to hook up to a computer and download a 2-300mb file every time Apple puts out an update.

Get out of your little Apple box and do some research before jumping my ass.

If Apple did the same you will be here whining and screaming about it and how Apple is forcing us to update and bricking your jailbroken iPhones to force you to buy from the app store

If your router doesn't support finding the fastest (or in Apple's Case) the only channel then you need a new router.

Set the channel to automatic. Any router worth the price will have the ability to handle this simple task.

And it doesn't work. I've already gone through this with Apple tech support. Set it to Channel X. No my router finds the best signal. "Read from response" Please sir set the channel to channel X. OK. WiFi just dropped. Have you thought about an Airport Extreme?

It's not the Channel, it's not the router, it's the fricking OS.

Of course it does. I have another 3G that connects to the very same router without issue. Auto-channel is not a requirement for a 3G or any wireless client to connect to a router.

I am saying if your router doesn't support auto channel selection then you need a new router. You are supposed to "in the non Apple World" you get the fastest channel available. In Apple's Case it doesn't work as I told the Knucle Head Genius I was talking too.

3.1 borked wireless on my phone and it's still not working.

It’s one thing to prefer or dislike a product, but to keep buying a product that he vehemently despises so much that he continually comes to internet forums just to say how much it sucks despite having to change usernames due to be being banned often for his nasty comments is just plumb crazy. Sane people stop supporting a company that doesn’t make products that suit their needs.

I think he was referring to the complaints that would ensue in general, should Apple start pushing out OTA updates.

So Keep your smart ass comments to something you know (which apparently by your forum comments are praising Steve Jobs and Apple).

Shut the hell up. If I had a Jail Broke Phone I wouldn't be Bitching. I'm using the Apple Software that "JUST WORKS".

In the case of the iPhone it the OS that doesn't "JUST WORK" it "JUST SUCKS" and can't multi task on top of it.

Don't pile your shit on me if you don't know if my phone has been Jail Broken.

Kiss Steve Jobs Ass Good Night, get in your Steve Jobs Jammies and put on your Apple Cartoons and go to bed.

No Sloppyism, it's a case of fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on you.

I got fooled twice, so in part Sloppyism it's a case of shame on me and I'm pissed that Apple continues to put out Shit OS updates for their iPhone.

I'm not the only one that wants.

1. A Stable OS to get me through my contract.
2. Multi Tasking to catch up with the rest of the mobiles OS's on the market.
3. Not having to hook up to my computer for simple things that should be handled via WiFi or Bluetooth. I travel a lot.
4. Taking accountability for the countless problems with iPhone OS that, until a Class Action Law suit is filed or the press gets wind of it Apple ignores.

So take your comment and I'm calling you "plum crazy" for being an sheep an putting up with it.

Thankfully I was smart enough to get out of the Mac OS when I entered corporate America. If I had to deal with the Shit of OS Snow Leopard I'd shove my computer up Steve's Ass and have him buy me a PC.
