Thread: Big Brother??

    Thumbs down Big Brother??
    This might be old news for some people but it was a new thing for me.

    Basically this morning I got a text from AT&T saying that I'm not running the latest firmware and blah-blah please go update. I don't mind updating since QuickPwn already supports 2.0.2, but I don't like the fact that Apple + AT&T are actually tracking this kind of info. They might as well make updates mandatory in the future. Not good. Your thoughts?

    First off, there not tracking your FW they cant. It's just a simple reminder for you to upgrade so you can recieve the best service they have to offer. It was for reception, So at&t wants to make sure you have the best reception so they have less phone calls to answer, ya dig.

    if AT&T are sending out these txt messages does FW2.0,2 help with reception?what Ive read so far says it doesn't + I'm waiting for pwn to remove baseband update.

    But if AT&T are sending these messages there must be some improvement?

    Has anyone on here upgraded and noticed an improvement with 3g reception?

    Has AT&T actialy said that this update fixed reception issues?

    Any updates on FW2.0,2 and reception would be nice.

    Thanks

    I have seen a slightly better signal with 2.0.2, and a slightly better transition between Edge 3G and wifi.
