......the iPHONE will NEVER be fixed. It also explains why a minority of phones NEVER have any dropped calls (although they will not escape the inevitable cracks
ASWELL, just like the exact same problem with the iMAC anyone who still has a current 3G in one piece by next year will be extremely LUCKY).
THe FIX for the connection problems to be released in Semptember was actually rushed out to solve the problem ie. 2.0.2 The incredible irony is that while the fix was in theory designed to help the problem the NIGHTMARE reality that it made the problem EVEN WORSE for a majority of updaters. While in theory it is still possible for the fix to do what it was originaly INTENDED to do, it would need the majority of ALL iPHONE owners to UPDATE to 2.0.2 which of course in practice is impossible too many IPHONE owners will be too computer illiterate to update a phone even if they are told to. The older fimwares are causing the extreme issues (including EVEN more rediculously short battery life) for a majority of phones with the new 2.0.2 (that they interact with on a local transmitter network - so the 2.0.2 that works will be lucky not to be sharing with any other iPHONES OR one(s) with the older firmware).When owners saw what 2.02 was killing off people's phones they avoided it at all costs and will be cautious in the future of upgrading firmware. There's no legal enforcement to update, if they tried to shut down phones that haven't updated there would been a MASSIVE RIGHTS outcry finishing off Apple/ATT as serious business concerns forever.
The RESULT being the majority of 3G iPHONE owners will FOR its ENTIRE LIFE have a DEVICE that doesn't have 3G, isn't a working PHONE , is practically NOT mobile due to non-existent battery life or any usable internet connection as its just too slow and in a few months will have cracks in it like The GRAND CANYON
- if its lucky enough to be in one piece at all. It may not have been a hardware issue after all, a faulty chip but ironically the resulting fcuk-up has become as permanent a problem as a hardware issue would have been if NOT more so - how difficult/expensive/legal nightmare would it be to force everyone to return their phone EVEN those that have had no problems as opposed to just a recall?? NO CHANCE! They have to start from scratch all new phone new hardware set up, new design of firmware which is fine as long as Apple want to make themselves go bust before they even have chance for their mkt share to COLLAPSE.But of course its STILL a superior FUN to use product and they STILL LOVE IT (and if that isn't an example of fanatascism to TERRORIST levels i don't know what is).

No its you
thats "pretty disengenuous

Nokia have aquired YEARS of experience and knowledge with( exclusively on) mobile technology ( from work, spending money on R +D etc and overall making successful business decissions to remain the top of their field/successful) . cf Apple have no history of mobile phone making, they started only 2 years ago with a technologically backward phone of poor call quality + battery life. A year later they take an evolutinary leap of years forward in mobile technology by allegedly releasing an EFFICIENT 3G phone (ROTFLMAO) only 1 year later that in reality included endless dropped calls,poor data transfer and a battery that holds the record for shortest "life"
(and beaten all competition by several orders of magnitude) to make its one of the GREATEST disasters apple has ever seen. Its clear they haven't a clue
and merely try to mimic what Professional mobile phone makers do and as usual put in in a pretty flashing box and hyperbole and properganda it to death as per every product release. Integrity? Reliability? Practical use? Who needs those to sell to the braindead, shallow, clueless about technology STYLE over SUBSTANCE target market?
The point is NOKIA SOLVED the PROBLEMS BEFORE they sensibley with INTEGRITY released the product to the public UNLIKE GREED above everything and anything (including customer suffering) Apple who rush released their 3G product as a BROKEN Alpha test (much worse than a Beta test) model to the public arrogantly assuming they could cut the corners and save $$$$$$$ and make $$$$$ more quickly while the hype from the first Phone was still around + would help carry the second $$$$$$ ( they guessed their customers wouldn't even notice if something technical worked or not as long as its looks nice and it can more importantly STILL been shown off to equally gullable shallow friends). Not only is that utterly STUPID biz decission by Apple LMAO funny they also are trying to compete with companies that are MOBILE TECHNOLOGY GIANTS in superiority over clueless apple yet they have the stupidity/blind greed/ARROGANCE to try to compete with someone like that
because they can sell average (but now cheap components + bad design unlike old apple) computers at a MASSIVELLY inflated price to people who don't use computers. They thought they could get away with filling a mobile with any old s.hit and their customer base would buy it - unfortunately all their customer base had used real mobile phones before and even they were not amused at the non-functioning device it became(except the insanity
bois, of course, Jobs could give them a bullet thru the head/Mac and they'd still be pleased)For more details on this see following Apple support forum thread;http://discussions.apple.com/thread....6266&tstart=45
Its OVER for the iPHONE and Apple will now pay for their EXCESSIVE HEARTLESS GREED...... i can here Apple fanbois tightening the noose around their neck as we speak
I hope it's not true that people running older firmware are causing 3G issues for the rest of us. When I think of all the computer illiterate people who own an iPhone and who have no idea that you need to connect it to a computer it gives me little hope that this is ever going to go away. If this is legit, AT&T should find a way to force the phone to upgrade to the latest firmware by a certain date. Make it stop working until it is brought up to date or something. Don't expect this go go away any time soon. There are just too many iPhone users who only charge it in the car or with some other adapter and will never see the update notice in iTunes. There will still be many people who will get the text message from AT&T about the update and have no idea how to do it. Trust me, I know people like this.
I'm afraid that getting all iPhone users to upgrade their firmware is like expecting traffic on the highway to get better by having people who tailgate, cut people off and weave in and out of traffic stop driving like idiots. It's just not going to happen.
