    ..Instead Apple has also given me another opportunity to buy more shit off them. Sweet.



    Oh Apple, you are Sooo cool. Thank ou Stevei, thank you. Thank you for listening.



    Cue juvenile Apple pom pom waving geeks & fan boys. Tell us again how wonderful Apple is, what foresight Steve has and why we just can't appreciate how wonderful his phone is!



    One thing I am proud of; I have persuaded 5 people I know of to NOT buy an iPhone (they went Nokia and HTC instead, and encouraged 3 kids who otherwise would have bought a Mac to go straight Windows laptop instead. I'll buy mu kids Windows.



    This one switcher who is switching back!



    What a bunch of self-serving drivel. Those "5" people you convinced to buy other phones have been well served by your objectivity.

    Update was flawless took about 10 minutes on a Mac. Works great although the new iTunes previews sound really distorted through the iPhone speaker (too much gain, clipped etc.) at least the few I tried on the featured list did. I don't know what's up with that, but the regular iPod sounds just fine.

    Yeah, took me about the same length of time and no problems. It makes you wonder how so many people can have so many problems. Whatever ...seemed drop dead simple.



    The only thing I had hoped for was to be able to use my outgoing corporate email server. The update added new features to Exchange Advanced settings like ports and such. I'll have to experiment. Can't wait for Leopard when To-Dos will also be able to sync.

    The longest part was waiting for the 152MB download over Cebridge/Suddenlink's "mediumspeed" internet.



    I DID get the "Updating iPhone firmware..."



    The actual update took less than 5 minutes.



    Notes are all still there.

    Favorites are still there.

    What a bunch of selfish whiners. This is a great device, and a great update. They are not going to give you the world all in one update. I'm surprised we have gotten as much as we have since this phone has been released. Have some patience. By the way, my update went perfectly -- and the enhancements are awesome. Especially the volume tweak and mobile iTunes is incredible.

    Please don't make stupidly arrogant comments that reflect your personal experience, and insinuate that people running into problems are somehow worthy of your inane 'wonder'ment.



    Thanks!

    no problems with my update. It didn't erase my notes, or cause any other glitches.

    Who exactly are you painting with that broad brush?!



    Don't overgeneralize. It detracts from what you are trying to say. (It is quite possible that Apple fixed the problems thanks to all the comments about the lousy software update experiences chronicled here and in many other forums).

    No offense to the non-whiners, but a lot of people are complaining that they didn't get all of their wish list items in this update. The things they gave us are awesome, and they aren't going to give it to us all at once. Like I said before, it's incredible that they have given us so many new things since the iPhone release. People should be grateful.

    Stocks and cities in Stocks and Weather can be re-ordered HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT HOW

    Apple Bluetooth Headset battery status in the Status Bar N.A. (YET)

    Support for TV Out HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT HOW

    Preference to turn off EDGE/GPRS when roaming internationally HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT HOW

    New Passcode lock time intervals NOT USED

    Adjustable alert volume NOT USED



    *"Haven't figured out how" means accessing this functionality was not obvious; have to check the iPhone website to figure out how, which is a bit unlike Apple......



    It took me a while to figure some of these things out. When you open the Stocks and Weather apps, go to the little "i" at the bottom of the widgets. It will bring you to the your list. See the three lines on the right? Tap and drag, it moves it in a specific order.

    Bluetooth Headset, don't have an Apple one.

    TV OUT, go to Settings > iPod.

    Turn off EDGE/GPRS, go to Settings > Network (at least I think)

    New Passcode lock time intervals, don't know yet.

    Adjustable Alert volume, go to Settings > Sounds.



    I've seen that you can choose the sound when you get a text message. They also have a Developer > Debug Console under the Safari setting.

    My iPhone worked exceptionally from June 29th, until this drastic update tonight! A non mod'd AT&T locked phone, and 1.1.1 really threw it a curve ball. 5 minutes after an apparent successful upgrade with iTunes, the bottom ½ inch of the touch screen went dead; exactly when I pushed the purple con for wifi itune store...blip...phone, mail, safari, and ipod icons went numb, and any button or key in that first half inch of the bottom screen!! Soft and hard resets, nope. Restore went normally but couldn't reactivate the bottom ½ inch! Apple, here I come!!

    Buy a freaken product for what it is. Anyone who buys something and then complains later about what it isn't, is a fracking tool. Even worse, after it is updated and they complain they didn't get what they wanted, they're even more of a fracking tool. I have no sympathy for those people. Are you retarded or just stupid?



    The next time you spend upwards of $400 for a phone, make sure it is what you want. Otherwise, please find a gas oven, cliff, bridge, or gun and remove yourself from the gene pool.



    Thanks, Michael

    EDIT: I hate it when the mods delete someone's post after I've already directed statement towards them.



    It makes me look like a rambling fool who's just talking to himself...

    great. hoping to do a quick update and play with the new features while my GF uses the comp, but the damn update gave me an error and put my (completely unhacked) iphone into recovery mode and hung (blank black screen) and itunes crashed. restarted itunes (twice) and finally restored my iphone, but now i have to sit here and reload all my songs and i'm suspecting this will reset my email which means 30min or so of checking off already read emails and deleting junk. grrrreeeeeeaaaaat! i suppose i should have known.... \

    Disappointed in Apple with this 1.1.1 update. As someone who is using an unlocked iPhone, I can't update to 1.1.1. Beh.
