11-28-2008, 02:39 PM #65Issues on v2.2
First off I am a VERY happy iPhone 3G owner (in my country it's unlocked - the baseband)
I also use a Mac and with Pwnge Tools I couldn't be happier.
YES I have bought apps (and searched a lot trust me) so i have MMS,Video,PowerSearch,Cut-copy-paste from and to e-mails,notes,sms and docs,vCard mailer,Spreadsheet AND use DiskAid to completely manage all files on my iPhone,etc etc)
SO people please stop complaining! iPhone IS a SOLID device - it's just been handled very POORLY by Apple...
I Do have 2 issues regarding the 2.2 version (to which i updated without a thought since the phone works much smoother and faster)
iSSUE 1: Offline Maps DOESN'T WORK with v2.2 *
*Ooops...I just answered this one by searching the net...
It seems many people are working hard out there for iPhone software!
You can convert your offline maps for iphone v2.1 to v2.2 here:
(site is in russian, no worries just download the Mapv4v5converter.zip file)
Many thanks to Offline Maps author, mask (maybe the best app ever for iphone)...
ISSUE 2: LogoMe doesn't work (it's not up to date yet since it downloads some files first)
I'm fed up with pineapples... Want my own (football team) logo when I reboot....Plus a full restore will take me two days (cydia packages,custom icons etc - though a nice trick is to take screenshots of all your categories,cydia and installer packages to make the process faster)
Apart from this I can't LIVE without my iPhone and am happy to see it working faster on v2.2- especially categories....
BTW is there another phone where you can navigate using google maps without internet connection? Don't think so....

I upgraded both the baseband and the firmware since our company has at least 2 more years on our contract.
I've found both the connection and searching for signal is worse than 2.1 and the old baseband. I was duped into the better call setup and signal that was claimed by Apple. I manage a grocery store and had the lay of the store as far as signal from my 2g thru my 2.1 3g and it is now worse.

I have had more dropped calls since 2.2 than all the other firmwares combined. This is really getting ridiculous. I love my iPhone but it needs to function as a phone.Black iPhone 4 32gb. MacBook Pro (but still have a Gateway Desktop running Windows 7 Professional)

all u 3g complainers seem to be the only ones.
all 2g users seem happy with the update, minus features that the iphone hasn't had since day 1 anyway so no reason to complain. steve jobs said it him self. its a damn pc phone, why do u want mms crappy pic sending? it has email, tell ur friends to stop being cheap and update to a real phone and they can recieve the emailed pics.
ill be updating my 2g iphone tonight and ill report back later with my results. all the complaints scared me but it seems to be all you unlucky 3g users.1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd
waitin on my white iphone 4

So far so good, Safari seems to crash less often, BUT, now my cookies apparently dont work anymore. I dont know if its just me, but my phone doesnt remember anything anymore as it used too. Even MMi acts crazy, I have to sign in everytime I go to it, and it bounces me back and forth from the iphone site to the regular site when I click on links.
If I sign into the MMi iphone site and click a link, it takes me to the regular site. If i'm on the regular site and click the banner to go back to the iphone site, I have to sign in again, even if I havn't closed the browser.... its making me nutz!!
BTW, I have my cookie setting on ''always'', I tried changing it to ''visited'', same thing.
Am I alone on this??Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!
12-01-2008, 04:16 PM #702.2 is Garbage
First off dont get me wrong i like how Apple has increase the speed of the phone, and the added Gmap thing, but its garbage for me and i have a 3G, i have had over 90% of my calls DROPPED in one day and i just got this phone a month ago, and i have NEVER had a dropped call until i updated to 2.2 can someone please tell me if i go back to 2.1 that will ERASE all traces of 2.2 off my phone, including that bandpass whatever that **** is? i am so FURIOUS right now, i wish i had never EVER updated to 2.2, can someone please tell me where i can go an download a Factory 2.1 Firmware. because i am totally DONE with 2.2, all this crap and i had to reinstall everything im so freakin PISSED

I had an odd issue when i was using some ********* stuff where it would not update apps that i got from the appstore. After removing ********* i had no problems.
I will say that turning off autocorrect is nice, before i was using the bossprefs app.
Push appears to work a bit better, but it could be an isp thing too.
Im not really impresses with street view. It would seem you have to guess where it is supported as there is no real indicator for it on the map.
I would have prefered some tweaking to the gps tracking feature and navigation function to make it a bit more detailed.
Otherwise, i see no majour improvements.

It looks as though Apple has started locking the new games into 2.2 FW. Might want to watch this one if it is true. If someone with 2.1 wants to take a whack at installing monopoly. go for it. That's the latest app store release.

Battery Bug ?
I had a sniff around and it seems its pretty common so wondered if there is a fix around yet ?
