    i tried it on windows xp sp 3 and vista sp1, ubuntu 8.10 and a macbook pro with os x 10.5.5

    didnt work on a single one... EVEN THE MACBOOK PRO

    but i went to the apple stoe yesterday and it not only worked instantly there on a macbook but a bootcamped macbook pro with xp

    they said the only other thing to do would be to bring in the dektop... and i dont want to do that...

    i want this phone to work becaseu its gets a better signal everywhere (talking 4 to 5 bars of 3g where i used to get 1 to 3) and the batter life lasts all day of use with 3g on which my other phone couldnt do from day one...

    updating itunes helps most. when mine did this it was because it was formatted for a mac and im a pc user. try using an application called media monkey and see if that application recognizes it. then we can at least find out where the issue is....on the phone, computer, or itunes.

    and yes media monkey does now support the 2.x firmwares
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.
