I have ATT line
and i have a problem with my phone... it is in emergency mode right now... for some reasons itunes cannot access to itunes store, i am stuck there...
what a surprise....
now after 4-5 trials my iphone is active with new 3.9 version
Ouch... I just bought a Samsung Omnia.. and gotta say, lovin it as an iphone substitute. You should see the camera on the Omnia, frickin unbelievable! it's 5MP with as much features if not more features than my nikon point and shoot. Iphone should really beef up it's camera a bit, perhaps ad a dedicated flash? what's an extra $100 to the price tag.
Downloaded the new OS for my 3G today about 1:15pm est (had the day off) and installed with no issues. My thoughts:
-The following work as advertised with no caveats:
--Landscape mode for native apps (awesome!)
--Shake to shuffle
--iTunes store accounts
--parental controls (for all those untrustworthy teens)
--in app purchases
-copy and paste work as advertised, however magnifier is a more finicky, you can forget get the cursor in the middle of a word that
-apps load a bit faster but not anything to jump up and down about
is more than six letters
-yes you can send multiple picture, however, you must copy and paste from photos. I remember seeing a screen shot where you could select multiple photos at the same time within photos...you cannot do this
-Safari loads pages a tad faster, again nothing to jump up and down about
-iTunes actually seems to load the home page slower, I guess this is to be expected since it's loading more
-Neither MMS nor tethering supposed to work yet (thanks AT&T) so I don't know why people are complaining
-haven't used the bluetooth so no comment here
-Several apps now have updates for the new OS which generally are improved
i upgraded to 3.0 today knowing exactly what i was getting, but it is still crap that the features like voice control and video support that are available in the new 3g S arnt available for the regular 3g.........
there is no way that the current hardware doesn't support the voice control stuff, and im sure the only reason they haven't enabled the video feature is because they arnt satisfied with the quality. sometimes crappy video is better than no video at all
i hate that they are treating their customers so horribly, considering that even if a current user wanted to upgrade they cant because they are locked into a 2yr contract

My god...not this again. Why should this phone/account/contract be any different from ANY OTHER? You signed a contract for two years, deal with it. Everybody knows what they are getting themselves into when they sign a 2 year contract.
