Did Apple iPhone Fix Make Problems Worse?
Latest update adds new problems on to old ones...
by Karl Bode 08:47AM Wednesday Aug 20 2008 Tipped by FFH See Profile
According to Newsfactor, Apple has released a fix for supposed 3G iPhone connectivity problems that may actually make the problem worse, not better. A firmware update released this week to tackle dropped calls and indiscriminate switching between AT&T's EDGE and HSDPA broadband networks seems to have caused new problems, including issues with the phone's GPS functionality. Other than a supposed brief comment from Steve Jobs, Apple has yet to address the connectivity problems officially. Some analysts believe the problems lie with the device's Infineon chip and are not firmware upgradeable, but the Apple devoted remain optimistic.

Re: UGH

Neither are 90% of the forums on here. This place is about a lot more than broadband, get used to it.

On topic now, the update didn't make my reception issues any better or worse. GPS, on the other hand, is broken. It takes MINUTES to locate me outside in the middle of the city.

Responsiveness in the contacts app is better.
