    Six problems with iPhone OS 2.2

    Are you an iPhone owner? Read this carefully before jumping to the new iPhone upgrade, OS 2.2. Remember, it is prudent to wait a while, rather than struggle with the bugs that may come with the new update.

    Apple’s just released update for iPhone and iPod touch adds several features to both the devices as well as a number of security improvements. However, according to iPhone Atlas, several users who have updated to iPhone OS 2.2 are facing serious issues, including problems with third-party apps, Internet connection and email. Here's a listing of the major bugs being faced by users.

    Third-party applications broken
    Several users have complained of some third-party apps not functioning properly with iPhone OS 2.2. These include a number of applications that make use of CoreAudio.

    This is due to API changes and other modifications. These applications will need to be updated by their developers. Users can look forward to fixes from developers to roll out over the next few weeks. In the meanwhile, users can try uninstalling then reinstalling applications for issues that do not involve API or other strict compatibility.

    Could not Connect to Internet
    Many iPhone users are unable to connect to the internet over EDGE or 3G cellular networks. In certain cases, manually switching between 3G and EDGE can resolve the issue.

    SIM card not inserted
    Several users are experincing issues with their SIM card not being recognised. Some updated iPhones are giving errors that the `SIM card not inserted' or that a PIN lock is in place (where it has not been set).

    The SIM recognition issue can be resolved by removing the iPhone's SIM card, then connecting it to the user's PC and restoring. iTunes may then reload the iPhone software successfully, after which the user can re-insert the SIM card and attempt synchronisation with iTunes.

    Problems in deleting emails
    Several users, specifically AOL users are facing trouble deleting email from their accounts after OS 2.2 update. According to the report, 'this problem can generally be resolved by navigating Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (your account name) > Advanced > Deleted Mailbox, then setting for the `On My iPhone' Trash for a POP account, or `On the Server' for an IMAP account.'

    App Store extremely slow
    Some users are reporting an extremely slow experience while browsing or trying to use the App Store after the iPhone OS 2.2 update. This may be a server-side issue that Apple is working to resolve.

    KM instead of miles in Google Maps
    Google Maps is displaying kilometers instead of miles for various countries. Here, selecting `USA' in International Settings can resolve the issue. However, this may lead to other issues for users outside US. There has also being reports of users not being able to use Google Street View. If Street View doesn't appear on the desktop version of Google Maps, it won't show up on your iPhone.

    Just so you guys know, Apple has since released v2.2.1 of the firmware, which is just as stable and speedy as any version we’ve ever seen.

    Better compatibility with third party applications? The iPhone has more than 35,000 third party applications already, in a span of less than nine months from its release!

    As for the other cool stuff, firmware v3.0 will be released on 8th June this year that will add over hundred new features, including cut-copy-paste, MMS, SMS forwarding, notes synchronisation, FM radio (with the help of third party applications and add-ons), Bluetooth features like A2DP and PTT, and loads of other things. And it will all be free, both for existing users of the first generation iPhone (no MMS for us though) and the iPhone 3G.

    Also, the iPhone is already worthwhile.

    iPhone is a highly overrated and underperforming gizmo.

    The main problem I have with the iphone is that you cannot
    remove the battery. As you know people can track you based on
    your phone. Even if you switched it off you can be found. Only if
    you completely remove the battery will you be safe from people
    who are after you. That's why I am not getting an iphone.
