Thread: 3g Settings in 2.0 Firmware

  1. #41
    The thing is, if they don't upgrade the batteries there is a lot less hassle for them as they can keep buying from the same company as the 1G iphones.

    You are NOT getting any discount. Get over it already. Do you see iPod purchasers getting deals every time a new model comes out? No you don't. I don't know why people have this sense of entitlement, it is quite misplaced. No one told you to buy the phone.

    Early adopters are lucky they got $100 store credits after the price drop.

    Rebooted yet? Alright. The iPod Touch has been running the same "Version" as the iPhones for as long as it has been out, that doesn't mean it can suddenly make calls. What people, okay, not normal people, either way, don't understand is that the current hardware can't support 3G, there is no "magic" to make this happen, period. If you want 3G, you need a new iPhone, period.
    some some people have icons that make them look like douchebags

    Well yeah, they just spent all this time pushing the iPhone platform and major changes to the OS would screw over developers.

    Also the only discount I could think of would be the trade in you old iPod/iPhone for recycling and get 10 % off a new one. Apples has had that program for a while now

    to the people asking if u can use 3G in the 1st gen iphone not you cant but it is in the 2.0 beta coz apple are just going to use the same FW with both iphones 1st & 2nd Gen when it comes out so they dont have to make anther FW or it so it will know if you have 3G or not and just config it self to use it

    I hope you read traffic signs better than you read threads. Seriously? First, shocked that people actually thought you could puta 3G chip in the original iPhone. Second, guy, the answer to this question is 2or 3 posts above. Read for Christs sake.

I have faith in Apple and I believe this phone will be worst every penny. $500 deposit back from AT&T along with my $100 rebate from Apple. Yeah, I got the 3G iPhone already!!! q:-p..
    I think those same people are too busy laughing at how stupid you are for typing "brought" instead of "bought", and "there" instead of "their". Good job Einstein.

    If the next generation iPhone doesn't have anything more than just 3G, then why bother? If they finally included a decent camera, a working MMS and Video Recorder, and maybe GPS, then I don'tcare what they list it for. I'll toss this 1st generation hunk of crap and upgrade. If it's just a thicker phone with 3G. Screw that.

    hey guys, do you think that with 3G coming soon apple will increase price for the iphone package? It would make sense since we would be getting a better internet speed, what do you think...

  12. #51
    I'd think that it would be easier for AT&T to use their new technology, being the new standard and probably much more efficient. So I don't think you'll seeing an increase in cost. Then again unlimited data for the iPhone right now is only $10 a month.

    I'm guessing you meant to say $20/mo. seeing as that is the lowest plan. The thing is that 3G is the "new standard" but Edge and 3G do not share the same bandwidth. Kinda like cable/dsl internet is more expensive than dial-up.
    iPhone: iPhone 3G (had original OTB 1.1.1)
    firmware: 2.1
    status: Not Pwned (too much trouble for not as much reward now that Appstore is around, I like being able to back up my iPhone and do updates without having to completely erase everything and start over.)
    service: AT&T (Cingular) USA
    MMS: not applicable

    that is exactly what I thought. I mean if you look at prices of other carriers on 3G phones its around 40$-50$ for the network. I'm pretty sure they will increase the price, but I hope it won't be huge increase....

    not necessarily... The firmware they used on the iphone and ipod touch are similar but arent the same, they modified to function on the ipod and removed bluetooth edge settings ipod icon, and a couple of other modification have been made... So this is probably a firmware where it will be only available on the 3g and not on the next update of the 1st gen

    But just a thought it be pretty cool if apple had some kind of 100$ upgrade to 3g thing, but thats likely never going to happen.... =(

    Isnt data alone just $10? Of course you have to pay the other 10 for visual voice mail and that other stuff.

    Damn good deal $20 a month is if you always have 5 bars :-D

    This has been almost the most boring useless four pages of insignificant posts I have read in a very long time.... other than the first post I don't think I gathered any actual important bit of information. *Sigh* I will point out the irony of my own post not contributing either to save someone else the trouble.

    That's not even the point, really... when T-Mobile DOES launch 3G, it's not going to be compatible with the iPhone's 3G anyway, because it will be on a different frequency that the iPhone does not support.

    For this reason, the only people that the 2nd gen iPhone should appeal to is AT&T customers (at least in the US).

    Also, by the time that T-Mobile gets their 3G right, I would hope that other manufacturers, other than apple, will be offering even better phones than the iPhone, that are not only less expensive, don't have to be unlocked, but can be synced with more than 1 computer.

    I am personally interested in seeing Android in action... But some manufacturer is going to have to come out with a better touch screen in higher resolution than QVGA to compete.

    I love my iPhone for now... But only because I could nto stand another second of Windows Mobile!
