This is obviously fake because 3.0 has to completely download before it installs, so you can actually be offline when your installing the firmware, therefore requiring no servers at all. As for activating it, the device doesn't activate until the firmware is done installing so it cant be bricked. Come on, apple is smarter than that.
Wow, big pony for you on that high pedestal. They both have pros and cons so I built my desktop and got a MacBook as well. Don't flame for someone calling another a noob cheapass. The other guy called apple shit which is worse in my opinion. At least they're innovating.
put your iphone into DFU mode, then boot it with 1clickboot.
Most people who need a serious heavy hitter when it comes to a phone go for Blackberry's and other smart phones with an actual keyboard because Apple's touch screen for the iPhone is more difficult to type on. Just because it's flashy and well marketted doesn't mean it holds the greatest market share. Apple/iPhone's market share doubled in Q1 2009, but is still far outpaced by RiM/Blackberry: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/gartner-iphone-smartphone-market-share-doubles-in-q1-2009/
i agree. they are overrated. don't get me wrong - i have an ipod touch that i absolutely adore. but for me personally, my cell phone has to feel like a cell phone. i prefer having a keyboard instead of a touch screen, and a flip phone. iphones are too clunky for me. cool, but not for me.
I disagree. Most of the iPhone's competitors offer way more features, technologically (camera being one of them). That being said, Apple is catching up with the 3G-S. I hate on the iPhone because it is heralded as the most glorious piece of technology to grace our unworthy hands. Simply put, it's overpriced and underpowered. Of course, I wouldn't mind if someone were to give me a free iPhone, because then, the horrendous price would be out of the equation.
It's amazing how people get excited over Apple features that EVERY OTHER PHONE has had for the past five years. Even my $50 Sony phone from 2004 had cut & paste and video message. Apparently the iPhone isn't about features, it's about hype. YDI for buying an iPhone.
They're back up, you may have to connect and reconnect a few times, I hear. I personally am waiting for the jailbreak to come out before iUpdate.
#8 (yes, I'm using comment numbering still because the post reply system doesn't seem to be working without bugs at the moment): Some hacks have already been released for certain features in 3.0 without the need for a jailbreak. If you're just looking for internet tethering in the US (like I do), there is already a method available: look for it on MacRumors or Endgadget.
