Link My iPhone 3G finally arrived!

After months of carrying around an iPhone 3G with the 3G turned off because the battery only lasted until 2pm, I eagerly installed the 2.1 iPhone firmware on friday hoping that the tantalizing tidbit in the release notes that battery life might be increased for “some users” would apply to me.

Since then, I have had the 3G network turned on and I am happy to report that the battery life is much better.

At the same time, as I waited nearly 3 hours for my phone to back itself up while tethered to my Thinkpad on friday, I could not help but think that this was a painful transition for a new product with high consumer volume. Updating firmware on my electronic equipment is like breathing to me, but for most people, this would be considered a major hassle.

Nevertheless, the iPhone 3G with the 2.1 firmware is awesome and Phanfare runs great on it. Now if Apple could just give me a universal search feature on the phone…

    Hi:

    I had the iPhone 3G with the upgrade. Even with that, AT & T is still a horrible network.

    I had to return the iPhone, I needed reliable telephony.
