Apple's iPhone software v2.0 available early for brave users - Page 4

post #121 of 137
I'm confused about the iPod touch and the iPhone 2.0 software. I know it's a $10 charge, but will it always be this way? Will there be a time when you can buy a new iPod touch and it comes with the 2.0 software?

his may not be of much help to those of you experiencing problems but I believe I know why you're experiencing such problems. I read on another forum that this firmware is intended for 3G iPhones. If this is true, it could help explain why you're experiencing problems with bluetooth and wifi. I'm not positive, but I believe the new may contain different Bluetooth and wifi chips. If that's the case, it would certainly explain your problems. Then again, you think that the lack of a GPS chip would also cause some problems. Is anyone experiencing problems in maps?

My iPhone 16 GB 2G phone works great with the 2.0 software. The 2.0 software is the same for all iPhones.

Likewise my 8 GB, not problems, lots of fun.

Cheers,

Down loaded and installed early version. Installed ok, but mail not working. Tried to get official package today, but message is that I have the latest version. How do I get the official release and restore to that.

If I start a chat and then go to the home screen and some body sends me a message I do not get a notification that i have an IM waiting... Anybody else confirm this.

At the WWDC, Apple stated that the push services for third parties would not be available until September.

Thanks. Did it, but had to trash the unofficial version first.

I had a smooth install to my 2.5G 16GB from my PC. No issues at all, everything was restored nicely. I sync with two PCs so I had to sync both of them before I was all the way back, but nothing but smooth progress along the way.

I set up my work exchange email successfully without any issue. I notice that the phone is stilll missing some typical PIM functionality.

The calendar is definitely not quite sorted out. The biggest missing feature is that when you create a calendar entry, it is not possible to invite other people to it. (as in to schedule a meeting)

The calendar notification feature is a little flakey. I had numerous notifications in the 'maybe' status that I had previously accepted on my PC. Accepting these again on my phone resent accept notifications to the scheduler. (ugh)

New time proposals from others are not handled at all, they show as an email in the mail app. I suspect that accept & decline return notifications don't work either, although I don't have any proof of that yet. This isn't great, can't put down the crappy blackberry yet.

Finally, the work calendar items show under 'Calendar' rather than 'Outlook' as I would expect.

Am I missing something as far as the exchange stuff?

In the mail client, using exchange functionality, it has become much more necessary to view email in landscape. I hope that gets added soon.

The remote function is great, works awesome with my appletv! Perused the app store but didn't see anything that made me want to spend money. I'm sure that will change.

"We could not complete your iTunes Store request.
An unknown error occurred (-4).

There was an error in the iTunes Store. Please try again later.
I feel more like I do right now than I did

One small fee gets a Lifetime of iPhone downloads So far 29,298 happy customers use iPhone-Express

I take it you are paying copyright holders royalties?

If not, why would I pay a fee to access stolen stuff when I could do it for free if I were so inclined?
Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.
