  • Firmware 2.1 Announced - To be Released this Friday
    10:49AM "This is a big update, it fixes lots of bugs. Fewer dropped calls, big battery life improvements. No crashes with Apps. Backing up is faster." Nice.



    Couple more days to find out just how much they fixed (or broke) the firmware.

      mms is a lot more convenient than email. Granted you have to have friends to send them to

      I do not understand the philosophy of not releasing these features. The basic amenities, basic features that have been requested by the consumer AND pointed out AND even developers constructing applications that have come close to performing these requests. I mean I ask myself what is the big deal if they did put Copy and Paste and MMS on the phone? Would Apple lose market share? IMHO I would assume they would gain more.

      Also the statement of “well you can email them your friend’s phone…”, the majority of people would just rather have MMS.

      Hey Steve if you read this, YOUR NOT DEAD SO STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAID, your stock price was sideways that day anyways so go back and fix these issues.


      My bad for the rant, just gets me sometimes.

      Sometimes people just have to be dragged into the future. Apple was also the first company to drop floppy drives from computers, do you see floppy drives anymore? Nope. Do you care? Nope.

      And I do agree with you....to a certain degree. However, do you want this at the expense of you? Being able to e-mail photos like we can off the iPhone is great, but why does it hurt to put MMS on the phone. Do you really think MMS needs to go away and we should move all picture messages to e-mail? For the percentage of people that use e-mail on their phones (like we do) is probably small.


      Does the BB use e-mail for picture messages? (I have no idea thats why I'm asking)


      Also not to veer away from copy and paste. I mean when using a device for text (e-mail, texting, notes, Google Maps, resturants, etc.) I would assume it should be mandatory. Where is this?

      Which is why the amount of MMS usage grew during the first year of the iPhone, right? Nice thinking.

      Can someone please confirm if it breaks anything?

      Does iphone browser still work after upgrading to itunes 8?
      iphonebrowser - Google Code
      iphonebrowser - Google Code

      Did they fix how the appstore apps are not staying in sync when some are downloaded via appstore and some are downloaded via itunes?

      Did they modify how the backup works or it's just faster?
      Can we still use the gui disable backup utility?

      mms has only been out like 15 years!!!! and email has still been around longer! so figure that out. apple isnt pushing us to a new system, it is using a perfectly available and more widespread system. alot of phones still dont have mms. and besides, half the time the mms doesnt go thru, especially when the two phones are different (sending from a razr to a nokia) alot of times you get picture size restrictions or other format issues. none of that with email.

      besides, apple knows only the iphone can do email pics. did you really think they wanted the iphone to "co-exist" with other phones? NO, they want the iphone to render all other phones obsolete. forcing the world to buy in to their product. Duh!

      on top of the fact that anyone who knows anything about the iphone, knows that it is NOT a cellphone!
      it is a mac laptop mini that can make cell phone calls among MANY other things. find a phone that can do half of the things an iphone can do, then we can start the pissing contest. until then, love it or sell it!

      where are your figures to back this up?

      especially since the iphone has no native mms capabilities and still didnt have a third party mms (that works properly) until about 6 months ago (still doesnt work properly)

      so how exactly does the iphone coming out have anything to do with the amount of mms's sent?

      maybe all the ones sent to iphones that didnt get received (because we don't have mms) were logged as sent/received and made for higher numbers, but it doesnt mean iphones caused it! thats dumb people sending mms's over and over again trying to get it to work. not more usage!

      Should Microsoft make Vista backwards compatible to Windows 98? There's still tons of people out there using it. Truth is, old features simply take up resources that can be better served towards other current tasks.

      BB has MMS capability (if there's a camera), but most use PIN'ing for business use. This is something unique to BB.

      I agree with that one, and from what I've read Apple does intend to add this, its simply been on the back burner while they get more pressing features squared away.

      There's good arguments either way. Apple feels MMS is a product of the past. I just happen to agree with them.
