Other than that, syncing is much faster and no stability issues so far.


I am having same difficultl-y-
never had it before-
after 2.1 frequent switching between 3G and Edge- and after having 4-5 bars Edge- then "No service" for 20 min at a time.

I still have sluggish app response and text entry at times-

i'll try to search the forum for ideas on fixing
( e.g. for sluggish- total wipe and restore? total wipe, reinstall OS, then reinstall apps singly? anyone else have ideas?)

The other issue is that and SMS cost money, money better spent else where. Especially when you have better alternatives.

What a ridiculous comment. My 61 year old mother and 68 year old father both regularly MMS family and friends from their travels and in day to day life. Are they part of the 'up skirt crowd'? Just because you dont use it doesnt mean it isnt worth using.

Theres a snobbishness about MMS. i think people see it as beneath them an not worthy of their fantastic iPhone. iPhone is for everybody.

Thats a silly comparison though really. Of course people arent going to use MMS on a daily basis in the way the do SMS, just like people dont attach files to every email they send.

Id call 46 million MMS send in the UK a good reason to have an MMS facility.

Not me. Across previous phones that I've had that were MMS capable I must have used it about three or four times in total. My GF's phone (a cheap Nokia, no camera) doesn't support it either.
One time when I tried it completely failed to work, but (so the intended recipient told me) kept failing to send to his phone.

In the early days I think the UK networks were bundling in a small allowance of MMS messages to get their customers to use it (in the hope that they'd use it more, like SMS, and it would make them more money.) But the cost they charge per message, compared to the actual amount of data required to send a picture, is such a rip-off.

So, sure, it could be a nice 'tick-box' feature to have on the phone (and it would mean the whiners need to find something else to complain about), but it's really no huge loss. I don't miss push-WAP messages either - they just seem to be used by phone spam fraudsters.

What I would really like is the ability to highlight/select text in an email, reply, and only get that included text though! (Or, to be able to select text and delete it in one go.) I dislike having to include the entire previous text of an email when I reply.

I agree. It would be a nice feature to have, but even without out the iPhone is still the best phone Ive ever had.

In terms of email Id like to be able to create one from scratch and then attach a picture. Is it me, or is this still not possible?

It is astounding that attitude that some people take toward MMS...

Some feel that simply because they don't use it, it must not be very popular. Others are waging a dogmatic and political smear campaign because they feel the business model is unjust. Then there is the crowd that offers up hopelessly cumbersome workarounds. Finally there are the theoretical arguments which take the long term view, wanting to replace MMS with something better.

None of that addresses the fact that MMS is the most convenient and popular way to send pictures to other phones. While apple may eventually replace it with something just as easy to use and superior in other ways as well, that doesn't help in the here and now. It doesn't help people who actually want to send and receive pictures to their friends and coworkers... today.

Please don't reply by suggesting workarounds involving email and gateways and etc... While I have degrees in CS and manage server rooms, none of the people I'm communicating with have those credentials. Their expertise is elsewhere. If I were to send any of them a MMS, they'd receive and view it with no training or difficulty. It is unfortunate that is impossible without wasting a bunch of time. If I were to email a picture, they wouldn't see it until later in the day or even later in the week. If they were to send me an MMS, i'd have to use a pencil and paper to view it.

Lack of MMS is a huge shortcoming. It may pay off in the long run if apple succeeds in switching the industry over to something better. That is a quite debatable subject. But what can't be argued is that the lack of this functionality is preventing iPhone users from joining the rest of mobile phone users in conveniently sharing pictures with each other. This isn't a theoretical assertion. It is the way things are today, not tomorrow, but today. iPhone users are not sending pictures to other phones. iPhone users aren't jumping through the hoops to receive pictures from other phones.

I still love my iPhone. But let's be honest about this shortcoming.

It really bugs me how apple devotes defend FLAWS in apple products. Thats not how we evolve and improve people... Nothing is perfect, but we have to try to get it perfect. Defending a products obvious shortcomings isn't helping anyone

This was posted however specifically for a windows user. And before people complain, windows people use iPhones too. And mac's aren't perfect, there are some benefits of having windows, don't be so naive. I just prefer to deal with apples faults, than windows.

you need the latest Garageband though. My Santa Rosa MBP came with GarageBand but doesn't have the "Send as Ringtone" feature.

Totally agree and whatever anyone says in terms of statistics I have to agree it is a shortcoming! Not really sure why they didnt but I do really think Apple should have upgraded the camera too though (although maybe why this is why MMS is not included??). I guess as much as I say MMS would be nice (and it would) what would be NICER is a camera that actually has an autofocus system and flash which would increase me using it to send photos AND to have MMS! Interesting to see that BlackBerry are increasing the camera to 3.2mp and adding Auto Focus to the Curve replacement. Would just be nice to have MMS in this update!

I work for a camera manufacturer so before anyone says "you need to learn how to take photos, mine are great"...yes I know, in certain circumstances outside with lots of light its OK but try and take a picture inside or somewhere remotely dark and it's a nightmare!

I guess we can't have it all and don't get me wrong I have had LOADS of phones and none are perfect, just would be nice to have all the iPhone 3G is now with a decent camera (3.2MP/5MP, AF and Flash), MMS capability, Bluetooth for something other than Audio and also COPY AND PASTE!

Guess some things Apple want to focus on and others they dont and the next gen iPhone may address some of these things but as has been commented many times before the iPhone is percieved as THE phone to have and whilst I wouldnt go back to any of my other phones and love it to bits, its suprising some of these things that certainly I took for granted are missing!

I really don't get this, you've completely misread me. I know you were helping people, but some bits looked to me that you were pulling people's chains. I certainly never said couldn't help people. I was only pointing out that you quoted someone asking about Bluetooth and you reply to that post a tutorial about how to unhide extensions. You don't see how that's confusing? I think it's a bit much to get angry about someone pointing that out.

Oh now i feel sheepish. Apologies.

But a little more tact in future would be better. An ORDER for a simple mistake is a tiny bit rude.

Arrhhh.. thats why. The word should. Quite a useless word, that I've never really liked. People should do this, people should do that. But should doesnt matter.. Because people WILL do what they want. It's almost like the word can't.

And yes i "should" have posted to the correct reply. But i think it's fairly obvious it was a mistake. So as I say.. Should doesnt matter, as the same mistake could happen in future, no matter what I "should" do.

Should is such a Box word. I like to think out the box, which makes me slightly scatty.

Well the numbers tell a different story. Someone already posted the numbers for the UK, for Germany I have these numbers:

Every German sends approx. 300 SMS per year.
Every German sends approx. 0.5 MMS per year.

Only 1% people pay for mobile data services is for sending MMS.

I don't have numbers for any other countries, but I'm quite sure that they're pretty similar. And you're telling me that MMS is popular? Not really. I've sent ONE MMS in my whole life, just for the sake of it, and the recipient (my girlfriend's cell phone) wouldn't display it correctly. So we're talking about convenience. MMS doesn't really work. All people I know that have cell phones tell me they don't use MMS because it doesn't really work. Cell phones either fail to display it correctly or they can't display it at all. There are EIGHT MMS protocols out there (MM1 trough MM8) and you never know which version your cell phone supports.

I think the problem is that you have to enable it in iTunes first (by clicking the Genius button, then waiting a long while for it dig through your songs), then sync your iPhone, which will be able to have new Genius information. After that, the Genius playlist will show up as the first playlist, and while you are playing a song, a Genius icon will appear when you tap the screen.

The reason for this explanation is that I also experienced no Genius functionality when I first installed 2.1. I was very impatient and wanted to experience 'teh snappy' right away. I found the Genius button in iTunes, but when it was taking a long, long time to progress, I cancelled it and said "hell no!" However, after I started playing around with my iPod touch, there was no sign of Genius. I plugged it back in, let iTunes chug through its Genius fact-finding tour, and then synced again. After this second sync, Genius showed up in the playlists.

Actually, my experience was that the Genius icon was on the phone from the moment I updated to 2.1, but it wasn't activated (needed to be started in iTunes). I have tried the process of starting Genius in iTunes 3 times, and each time it has crashed iTunes. I did all of the usual stuff (restart, reinstall iTunes 8, permissions repair, etc). I'm running 10.4.11 on a MDD dual G4, everything up to date, maxxed out on RAM, etc., so I don't think this related to a system issue. Anyone else having crash issues with Genius?

Yes, sorry to be unclear. What I meant was that when trying to do it before 2.1 it was very erratic (on my iPhone at least). Often the page refused to move or moved just a short distance before stopping.

Now it seems more responsive (though not 100%).

over all solid upgrade (bug fixes)i.

battery life seems to be same, 50 mins of talking 30 mins of browsing and day of standby battery drained in the night. (btw i restarted and recharged completely after the upgrade)... will monitor today ...

Yes, much the same argument was made regarding Compuserve and AOL not needing email gateways to the general internet. Today we regard those people as having been hopelessly backwards and limited.

You again missed the point. iPhone email -> SMS. You email, they get it *ON THEIR PHONE*, and they get immediately. From their end, reception of an SMS looks *EXACTLY THE SAME*. There is no difference. There is no CS degree required. I send my brother 140char emails to his phone all the time - he never knows the difference, other than the sending number isn't mine. Just select their phone email address and send. It's just like regular email from your end, just like regular SMS from theirs. If that's too complicated for anyone... I dunno, perhaps they shouldn't be using SMS. "OMG! It's just like before! It's *blowing my mind*!"

For them to send you an email, show them how to do it from their phone - hell, just teach them how to send an email to anyone. I have yet to meet someone who didn't think it wasn't the slickest thing. "You mean I can *do that*?" Show them how to save a template with your email address, and use that as the seed instead of your phone number. (Who punches in a phone number? Almost no one - you save it, you look it up. Looking up a pre-saved gateway address is just as simple.)

No one has to do anything different to receive anything from you.

To send to you, they just have to select a different phone number entry from your contact.

Hmm, maybe you're right, that's *entirely* too complicated for people.

No, it's not. Lack of information about how to use send email to an SMS account is the problem. The phone is fine. MMS is not. It's a horrible kludge that is being used as a scam.

Bollocks. I send them from my Mac, through email. I get them on my Mac, through email. An email client is an email client.

Only ignorance of how to append the carrier domain to the recipient's phone number is preventing iPhone users from doing so. Ignorance is easy to fix, as long as it's not willful ignorance.

And yes, I've heard the "ZOMG, I have to ask them their carrier *too*?" response. Uh, yes, just like you have to ask them their domain for the email. How ever do we survive doing that, I wonder?

Here's a quick solution: set up some email templates that massage your email address into the form needed for various carriers. (What's the most there, half a dozen for most people?) When someone asks you for your phone #, send it and the template for their carrier. (After all, you did ask for their carrier, right?) They save the info just like they would any other phone #, and voila. Their work is done. Now they have all the info to MMS to you, and they had to do no more than they would otherwise. You sent it, they saved it, they use it. Done.

Because no hoops are needed to be jumped through. It's right there in your email.

I still love my iPhone. But let's be honest about this shortcoming.

It's only a shortcoming if you refuse to recognize that there's really little difference other than how you look up the address for an email, or a phone number, from an address book. This isn't complicated, it's not some arcane workaround. It's simple, straightforward, and turns the knife just that little bit more on SMS.

Hell, who's up for writing a tiny little app for the iPhone that hooks into the Contacts DB and lets you select the carrier when you enter a phone number, so you get the corresponding email gateway info entered in as an email address marked 'SMS/MMS', automatically? Couldn't be simpler in that case - ask them for their phone #, ask them for their carrier, pick from the pop-up list, it creates the entry *and* creates the proper return template for that carrier, and sends to them. They save, and you're both done.

Anyway, it's obvious you're never going to convince me that MMS is a necessary feature, and I'm never going to convince you that there are alternatives that don't require advanced technical skills... the carrier marketing is apparently pretty good. How about we skip this topic, and get back to the iPhone 2.1 update?

Hey guys

I seem to have a big problem.

I updated my iphone with the latest software update and ever since I haven't had 3g connection at all. I had it before with no problems but with the latest update I don't seem to ever have it.

Any clues or tips you may be able to share to get this issue fixed?

Thanks a lot.

Maybe Apple is turning into MS.

PS: Safari on my iPhone is having more keyboard slowness and freezing up the whole phone... But it hasn't yet crashed.

Hey what do you mean by restart ?

I did go ahead and shut the iphone off and
turn it back on again but still had the same issue.

As far as I know, that is the only way to force a restart.

This was posted however specifically for a windows user. And before people complain, windows people use iPhones too. And mac's aren't perfect, there are some benefits of having windows, don't be so naive. I just prefer to deal with apples faults, than windows.

I agree with you and this one of the reasons I have Windows on my Mac. There are some engineering programs that are not available on Mac. Those programs usually cost $7000 to $10,000 a copy and they are a must in my profession. The good thing is that I don't have to buy them, they are provided for my for free

Anyway...Update feedback! I am glad that for me it seemed to go fairly stress free on my install but I have to say....I don't really notice any difference except backup is indeed faster.

Contacts load time have never really been a problem and text messages take as long to load as they always have. I've never had a problem with dropped calls but I still get the "error sending message" occassionally when I send texts. There are a few new options which is great but I haven't needed any of them yet!

I like Genius and I think someone else commented the same when I say it has made me rediscover my music library and songs I had forgotten.

Most annoying for me is that battery life is exactly the same, I haven't noticed it any better! Although I would be interested to know what "...Significantly better battery life for most users..." actually means....who are the users???

All in all I hope that now on the whole from what I have seen from feedback we are on a playing field now where things "appear" to be more stable, hopefully we can start to see some features that everyone has been asking for and start increasing functionality!

Also wondering about battery life - it's about the same, though I'm relieved it doesn't seem to be any worse. I'll have to wait until Monday when I'm back in the office before I know if there's been any improvement in the 3g reception (fortunately I've always had great reception at home & around my neighborhood) - I'm hoping for it to have an easier time finding 3g after it drops off (70% of the time I have force it by turning 3g on and off).

The 2.1 upgrade fixed my accelerator problems. I have seen little attention to this problem--maybe not so many have had it--but now the accelerator works all the time and I am ecstatic.

Turning it off and then back on it not a hard reset.

Hold both the "Home" button and the button at the top(the one that turns the display on/off) until it shuts off and you see the Apple logo appear. That is a hard reset and should fix your issue.
