As far as "not doing it right", I don't know what you mean. I have jaiilbroken my phone and my wife and kids' phones many times over. Yes, I have screwed up some, but I have searched out answers on my own literally for hundreds of hours and have been successful at finding the answers with much, much patience. If you are going to insinuate that I don't experience bugginess, lag, crashing, etc. because I did something wrong you are very mistaken.
I have plenty of intellect and patience for doing things...that are important to me. Jailbreaking was fun for a while. I knew there would come a time when Apple would make jailbreaking unnecessary for me with the appropriate update. This may be it...but then again I may get the itch to be the pioneer you supposedly appear to be and hold off updating to iOS5 until a jailbreak comes out.
Jahooba, look at last two letters of my screen name. I don't know what you do for a living, but my guess is if you tried to do what I do, you would wet your little panties. Patience, attention to detail, responsibility and diligence are part of every minute of every day at my job. I've developed some very thick skin in the process after thousands of hours of practice and study.
Thanks for most of your input. You make some very valid points and in essence, I agree. Jailbreaking is a challenge that entices some. I'm just not sure I am in that camp anymore.

I would consider myself pretty darn computer-savvy, but let me tell you I had a good bit of problems with my phone on 4.0.1 JB'd using jailbreakme.com. Apps would freeze/crash several times a week. Maps, Camera, and Safari were NOTORIOUS for locking up on me. At one point it was so bad that EVERY SINGLE APP crashed out right after launching until I rebooted the phone.
I don't think it's anyone's fault that it wasn't very stable. It just wasn't. I'm hoping my current 4.3.3 sn0wbreeze JB will work a bit better for me.

They always say over 200 new features, but then only discuss 10 major ones. I'm really curious as to what the entire list of 200 features are. Can anyone point me to it?

oke some people are saying here they copied from android microsoft and RIM But i don't get RIM what does they steal from them?
not imessage, cause before BBM there was another application for free messaging over the internet. and for bbm you need a special SIM :S

I don't care how late apple is to show off these new tweAks apple will never lose customers due to the community iPhones have already!!!!

messaging, because it's never been integrated into the phone before.

Quick question for anyone who may know, but for imessage on iphone, will you receive messages through your number or your apple id? Because if its number, your texts won't go to your other idevices and if its email, people will have to message to your email as opposed to your number as they are used to. Anyone know exactly how this will work?
06-16-2011, 08:25 PM #109
Actually you can setup other emails to receive the messages. I have 2 emails setup and my number. A staff member has my number for text so it auto changes our text to imessages. Other staff have an email to imessage me. And the other email is a general email to be reached when I don't want the other email or number known.
Be sure to change your caller ID to the number or the email that you want everyone to see.

Ah I see. But what if someone "imessages" me on my iphone's number? Will I be able to read that their message on, say my ipad, (if its logged in with the same email as the one my iphone has on it) even though the message was routed to my number?
06-16-2011, 09:03 PM #111
I never got around to testing that on my iPad. It did have my first email on it but never received the messages. Put my iPad back to 4.3.3 because 5.0 none of the video apps work.

Looks like a nice upgrade. I sure hope the originators of all the tweaks that find their way into official iOS releases are getting compensated somehow. This one is loaded with them.

Really, i don't see anything worthwile here that I don't already have in my jailbroken iphone. Wireless update, have it; notification screen with swipe down, have it. Had all of those on the iphone3 actually.
If anything, i'll lay a bet that all these new features make the iphone 4 run slower and hog more memory.
not really excited about much here. nothing innovative or game changing. I agree with the people crying "catch up" and "copy"

I know every messaging app I've tried (App Store and JB) is slow as fudge in some aspect or another, compared to the stock MMS app. I have high hopes that they'll make iMessage work just as well as the MMS app and we can leave the 3rd party apps behind.
