    I love when people claim that since they cant play Suduko, the iPhone is "no fun". Just priceless.
    Suduko is available for the iPhone at mojits.com

    I was using the general you, not the specific you.

    If no patch is ever released, you'll (mobileman) be happy with the iPhone? Wow, that is quite a statement - it must fit your needs perfectly (or close to it). You (mobileman) are also Apple's perfect customer.

    I think there is an expectation (among the general population of iPhone users) that the iPhone willl be fixed/enhanced, etc. I'm basing this on forum posts (which, as I have said, are skewed, but still present issues.)
    Dont need mms,
    I have access to email, sms, and IM
    by far best browser on the market
    I can make phone calls.
    Have all my songs loaded.

    I really cant think of anything I have to have. Is that all right with you mikeC, or do you know my needs better than I do? I can really care less that your basing your opinion off of other peoples forum posts. I'm basing things off of my first hand experience.

    If you are talking to me, yes I still do have a curve sitting in my desk draw. I support all mobile devices for my company. I really like the curve. If I wasn't using the iPhone I would go back, as it is by far the best device at doing mobile email on the market. Reason I swtiched....

    1. Once you see the awesome, large, hi-res screen, its very hard to go back.
    2. Browsing the net was painful on the blackberry for anything but mobile sites.
    3. I know you can load music on the curve, but its not a pleasant experience.
    4. I found I can type a lot faster on the iPhone keyboard.
    5. I text a lot, love the threaded messages.



    On a side note, my company is giving serious consideration to dropping Windows Mobile support.

    Is anyone else noticing that...

    Their iPhone seems to get slowly more buggy every day.

    It's the case for mine. It started out fine for me. Other people were saying that they were having a few crashes, but i wasn't. Then all of a sudden, it starts to lock up, or crash.

    It seems with each day that goes by, it gets worse and worse. Whether it be from just listening to music, using maps, using the browser, it always happens. I don't change anything either...



    Hopefully Apple has the update released soon...they have had a month and hundreds of thousands of users give feedback.

    I turn my phone off at night. The clean restart every morning has kept mine running clean and fast.

    applehero 07-30-2007 01:49 PM

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've only had 1 instance where it locked up in the phone app, restarted and it was fine. I leave it on all the time and I haven't had any problems other than the one.

    gr8tfly 07-30-2007 01:57 PM

    I can't say definitely, but I have a feeling it might be occurring more frequently.

    I cleared Safari's cache, and it might have helped.

    Google Maps crashed the first time, yesterday.

    It's all very subtle, though.

    I've restarted it a few times, for various reasons, but I haven't done a full restore.

    If I did do a restore, it would take a while to get a feel for how often crashes are occurring. I think (hope?) an update would be out before enough time went by.

    side note: none of the crashes have been anymore than a slight annoyance. I was able to pick up where I left off when the app restarted.

    Luck with products can be a weird thing.

    I had 3 MP3 players of the same brand and model go bad in one month and they should have been good, according to reviews(plus I liked them a lot). Got 3 exchanges from Best Buy and praying the 4th one works. Sometimes you get unlucky with one model, but others are the best for you.

    Unfortunate iPhone bug...

    Found a weird (and unfortunate given my user name) iPhone bug. Looks like its a bug with their word/typing check function since it doesn't offer an alternate word...

    Try typing my user name in any application without using the delete key: "krsnet"

    Good luck with the "t"...

    rjgonzales 07-30-2007 11:45 AM

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Try sliding your thumb over to the T rather than letting up when the R is highlighted.

    ascham87 07-30-2007 11:48 AM

    Still doesn't work. Not a bug per se, but unfortunate for you.

    Sliding over the "t" doesn't work and reveals that you also couldn't select E, A, or D. Obviously tried that first...

    None of the iPhone's at the Apple store worked either so I'm guessing there's none work...

    I think it does qualify as a bug in the spell check function - when it detects a word it doesn't recognize, its supposed to offer a guess at the real word...not so here. I can't imagine a case where they would need to truly prevent the press of a letter key like this so its gotta go into the 'bug' category - not that I really want to debate semantics.

    I guess I'm just lucky then, I have no need to type in the word "krsnet". However, if I ever need to, and it becomes a big problem, I will quickly demand my money back from apple. Surur, you are now scraping at the bottom of the barrel.

    or maybe its just a simple question. Why are you so hostile? Anyway who cares, I can type "krsnet". All is right in the world.

    Man, that is a bizarre bug. It actually will not let me type that "T." If you drag your finger left to right across the T, it even skips it. Very very strange. I don't know of any other situation where it disables a key. I wonder if this is a clue to some easter egg or something.

    (ps: whatever the heck it is doing, happily i never have actually had to type "krsnet" :-)

    Wait, I spoke to soon. I can type krsnet in the notepad app, but I cannot in the email app. When I find the box, it has to go back. In the meantime, I will just type krs. when I need to type in krsnet. It's a terrible work around, but what are you going to do.
