    AT&T is on board with all the other phones. The issue here is the below market unlimited data rate of $30/month that Apple negotiated for you. AT&T does not block any of these services on phones where they get to charge the market rate, closer to $60/month.
    That's not the "market rate" in the US. Sprint and T-Mobile are both certainly cheaper for unlimited data. I'm not sure what Verizon typically charges these days, but I suspect that it's no higher than $30.

    How come the auto login option for wi fi dosent show up in the settings menu for me? Also the anti fraud setting for safari browser is not showing up in the settings menu either. Anyone else having these problems?

    The first thing I did was the"find my phone" feature and it worked perfectly.

    The push notification for mail has moved into the mail, contacts & calender screen of settings. If the email client does not support push your only option is to fetch

    my phone moves snappier too. As a matter of fact I have noticed that some of the animation has just stopped and the screen just appears out of nowhere. Knida disconcerting.

    I also do not believe that verizon is getting an IPhone. And if it did perhaps it would only get the 3G. Is there a loophole with AT&T's exclusivity deal?

    The only Apple/Verizon rumor I've heard is they might get the rumored tablet.

    Anyone have a slowness with the landscape texting? My friend is having some pretty severe slowness since his update and isn't sure why. Any suggestions?

    I haven't done much texting today(which is really weird),but I have been playing around with landscape keyboard in Notes. I'm just trying to get my speed up...but if anything it seems to be more responsive.

    i know the MMS feature is coming late summer from AT&T, but from I thought you could still attempt it with the new OS.. is that only with the 3G-S?.. I have the 3G and i don't see any MMS (picture text) features in the new OS..?

    Push notification of what though? You need apps with push, for push. Something magically just doesnt happen. Be more precise, I'd love to help
    I was asking earlier about the push notification for mail. I'm not getting it so I was wondering if anyone had it for the standard mail app. Thanks

    That's probably one of the most retarded things I've heard about 3.0 thus far. Push notification... Except for mail. <3 apple!! Hopefully hotmail hooks it up

    a system like BIS that gives you push for any mail account would be sweet, but they came up with mobile me, so it will never happen because it would take away from mobile me.

    Only thing I've noticed that I don;t like is I've been trying to sync my phone all day to get my music and apps back, but the backup itunes does first is taking forever, I ran it for 3 hours earlier and had to quite so I could use my phone, and it was only at about 30% after that!!

    Anyone else notice this?

    So I'm a sim swapper. Didn't seem to be a big deal until now. I have an AT&T data plan for my BB and swap to sim to my iPhone for more fun on the late nights and weekends. Aparently AT&T is happy about it after the new 3.0 upgrade. I'm getting notification That my data can't be enabled because I don't have an iPhone data plan. Funny thing is they were the ones that told me it would work. Now I've got to call in and see if I can get them to turn the iPhone data on using by BB plan. I don't think the BB will work on the BES without the BB data plan. Can I jailbreak to over come this if I have to? It's not like I'm ripping AT&T both phones have the same data price and I can only use 1 at a time.

    because your mail only gets pushed if you are using certain mail servers, unlikely blackberry that will push any mail...

    many of us came from blackberrys and miss that feature...

    In order to get the push York on all email systems you would have to have a central server running the show. That is blackberries greatest strength and it's greatest weakness. I think at the moment you'll just have to fetch or get an email service that pushes. Mobile me works great and comes with a whole host of extras: over the air syncing, find my phone and data storage. Even an online photo page and many more.

    Your company doesn't use exchange?! That is a bummer. Mine does and that's why I no longer miss the backberry experience. Sorry

    Things are looking good so far. Wish MMS and Tethering where working right of the bat but that's AT&T for you.

    I have enabled push notifications for the two apps I have installed that support it (Tap Tap 2 and AP Mobile), but have not received a single notification yet. Is the service (or these apps) not yet active, or have others received notifications already, which might suggest something wrong with my setup?

    Edit: Set up textfree lite, and received notifications from it. Perhaps AP Mobile is not yet sending updates, or only in certain categories to which I have not subscribed...

    Previously I had gone into field test mode to allow me to
    toggle between Signal strength Bars and Decibel readings to judge signal strength.

    Oddly enough this setting remained intact after upgrading to 3.0.
    I would have expected to lose that.

    Field test mode is entered by keying: *3001#12345#* then tap Call.
    Lots of geeky stuff in there, none of which will hurt the phone. (not that
    i recommend changing anything).

    While in FTM you can toggle between bars and decibels by touching the bars up by the carrier label. When you exit field test mode by the home button it returns to normal.

    But if you exit FTM and SLEEP the phone with the top button, you will retain the ability to switch back and forth between numbers and bars. (To undo this enter FTM again and press home).

    I leave mine permanently with the option to switch back and forth enabled, because bars don't tell the truth. Numbers are much more accurate than bars. (Lower numbers are better).
