    You have to wait until Apple releases to the general public in a couple of weeks or so. My battery life is OK so I have no problem waiting. It gives me 2 weeks or so to spend over at the Crackberry and the Droid forums going aff about it all....

    There are very few complaints going on here, everyone can have a technical issue from time to time, but coming over from the crackberry forum last year cuz I was sick of the bashing and hs drama, there are way more complaints in that forum (the bb part anyways) than you'll see here... This battery life thing is a glitch ... Apples good at fixing things ASAP ... Bet it's out in another week or so
    Absolutely agree. I'm sick of CB. So many of the users post such childish comments regarding anything that isn't an almight BB. I have friends over there so I like to stick around, but I can't bring myself to go into many threads or else I just end up defending Apple and iPhone.

    It seems like the users of other forums are open minded. Like myself personally I have owned tons of different smartphones I love my iPhone but respect that the others exist

    I do too. I've owned two BBs and I still like them and wish the company success. But CB has almost turned into a warzone, especially in some threads. People who've never even touched an iPhone or Android device are slinging around misinformation. It's extremely irritating because then the former-BlackBerry users who now use iPhones or Androids spend their time defending their devices and try to stop the misinformation.

    i couldnt agree more with both of you. I've always been a "neutral" user(also previous bb user 4+yrs). My motto always was and still is: "use what makes you happy, that works for you and fits your needs regardless of what platform it is"

    I could NEVER understand the p!ssing matches that some get into with the whole my phone is better than your phone type of crap.....thats just super annoying and disappointing, bringing negativity to the forum(s) like that !! I'm out of hs 26yrs now, i dont want to see the "hs drama" on the forums too, LOL.

    I've been a BB user for 4 years and this is my first iPhone. I don't want to talk negatively about RIM or Apple or any company. If there is legitimate criticism to be made, that is fine, but when forum members attack a company that is just unproductive and negative.

    I think part of the reason I am this way is that im an IT guy. I have to support many different phones on a day to day basis.. and all of them does what the end user needs it to do

    I noticed for awhile that my location services were kicked in and in use (purple arrow) for Siri. That was when I noticed a lot of battery drain. I checked to make sure nothing else was running by closing everything out and it seemed that the culprit was the location services. I only have it turned on for Siri. Hopefully the fix can get he iPhone 4S back to iPhone 4 standards.

    Probably no open slots in the server queue... try again later... it took a couple hits for iTunes to actually download for me.

    Edit: Got it OTA/Wifi on my iPad-1 - took about 5 min to download and is presently installing... iPhone is downloading via iTunes - appears to be a full install and not just a delta via iTunes.

    If I recall correctly, the OTA updates were (are supposed to be) delta, but iTunes updates are full version.

    To save folks with limited data plans from going over and blaming Apple for their overage. AKA Gluteus-Protectus on their part.

    I'm amped... Hopefully it actually makes it so I dont have to feel like I have an Android device and monitor my phone usage ever 3-4 minutes.
