I picked up a 2G iPhone when I was in the US earlier in the year.
I’ve been meaning to write a review here for a while.
Here is the short version: I love it!
Upgrading to a new 3G model doesn’t really interest me for now. I’ve added 200MB of mobile data to my existing cheap plan, and have never come close to using all of that. So, I don’t need to upgrade to get on a better plan … in fact, it would cost me more and I’d be locked in, so I don’t really see the incentive there.
And it doesn’t really seem to me that there are any really compelling functional, or even aesthetic, reasons to switch.
Am I missing something?
Until yesterday, I haven’t even felt the need to upgrade my software.
Then Cultured Code announced an iPhone version of Things which syncs with the desktop. That will do it for me.
So, I’m looking for somebody who can help me upgrade.
According to iTunes I’m currently running v1.1.3. I’d be interested to talk to anybody who has done this successfully. I’m hoping it’s as easy as the initial unlock and jailbreak.
Also, while I’m at it …
Prior to the iPhone I used a Windows Mobile phone, and used Missing Sync to sync with my address book and calendar. When I say sync I’m talking mostly theoretically. It never really worked properly, randomly changing contact details around and dropping appointments into the ether.
Very frustrating, and not really recommended at all!
What’s more, even though the software is now removed, it’s left some muddy footprints in my network settings:
There are literally hundreds of those dead connections listed. I can only guess that it created a new entry each time I connected the phone to sync, and never cleaned up after itself. It’s a pain because it means that this settings page takes forever to load, and I’ve also noticed that my Mac takes a long time to switch onto a different network connection (e.g. when I move between wi-fi points, or disconnect an ethernet connection). Perhaps it’s somehow working through this list to check which connections are available?
Does anybody know a quick way to remove these?
Any help with this would be much appreciated. :-)
