Apple releases iPhone 2.0.1 software
If you plug in your iPhone to the computer, you’ll see that iTunes asks you to update the software to the new 2.0.1 version. It is expected to fix bugs which, as we’ve said before, are experienced by many (including us). There is no official information what will really be fixed but we can cross our fingers that most problems will be gone once updated. If you take the upgrade, make sure to post a comment on how the new device feels.

To those who have their iPhones jailbroken: keep in mind that updating to the 2.0.1 will “lock” your phone to the App Store only, or at least until the new PwnageTool gets out.

2.0.1 has directional GPS, meaning turn by turn navigation is now a possibility. Just wait until TomTom gets their hands on an SDK, you all will have 1 less thing to rag on the iPhone about.

You are stupid. I think it's great that the company cares about their iPhone customers by releasing these updates that fix and improve the phone. Think before you act dumbass.

You know, there is such a thing as being an HTC fanboy too. And besides, this device is not perfect, there are many other reviews that gave the Diamond poor ratings.

Apple Rules!!! iPhone is not perfect but is very good!!! On the moment is the best mobile phone on the market. I appreciate more been using apple and have a fix some weeks after I buy the product, than have a product who never have a fix, like Windows Mobile or Vista. I am a happy ex windows mobile user. Never more I will want to return to the dark side. :-) Only use Apple or Linux. No more Windoburcccckk!!! ;-) Sorry windows fans!

While you are entitled to your opinion as to the iphone being the best mobile phone on the market. I have to disagree and say that the Nokia N-series and latest E-series devices are the best devices currently on the market. The iphone is still lacking basic functions, even after the release of a second version, that the vast majority of low end phones have. The N-series, for example the N95 has all the same capabilities of the iphone but adds picture messaging, a 5 megapixel autofocus carl zeiss lense, and VGA video recording at 30 fps. Sorry, but the iphone still needs to play catch up to stand on the same level capability wise. I will admit the iphones touchscreen technology is amazing, other than that though its lacking in many areas.

I must say, when I first bought my iPhone it was perfect. Everything I waited for. But I am very disapointed with 2.0 release. I should have known better, but was to excited. Mr Jobs almost won a fan, but he will now have to try harder.

yeah i have to agree Iphone Sucks and ATT& super sucks lol they have upgrade it to 3g now you only get maybe 2 or 3 hours on the phone unless you turn 3g off than whats the point?

Really???? Amazing!!! Fantastic!!! 3 Hours??? I must complain with Apple. My with 3G on all day and PUSH active last for more than 7 hours of usage and 12h15m Standby. If you give me a email I send you a photo. That is the best battery life you have on a 3G model. I have on my country (not USA) 3G for some time. Never seen a device working so good on 3G. But if you think you got better good for you, do not wake up!

I have the LG Dare from Verizon and it has 3g...How come the battery last me 2 full days? 3g is always on

LG: That could happen only because you are not using 3G data connection intensive. In my iPhone 3G, if I only use it for some calls, some internet navigation, same emails and some apps, everything without intensive use ,in the end of the day I have 50% battery. But try put some PUSH on your LG and lets see how your battery can take. 3G if not used is not spensive, only when you are always using it. Others: Now lets talk about this upgrade. Everything works faster. I only upgraded a few hours. Must test more. Until know not a problem. But if you are Vodafone, you could have a problem after update to update your carrier settings. Not a problem, everything works well. 3G ok, calls Ok, Data Ok. The settings are the help number for contact your carrier. For what I see is that thing he is trying to update. Cheers!

hey apple is the best name in MP3 players and even if u think that their phone sucks u have to give them credit for at least trying to make it in the phone business. personally i think that iphone is the best, the only reason most other phones are good is because they ripped of apple's original design and then "improved" the features.

Apple is not the best name, it is the most popular name. Best and popular are NOT the same thing.

And I don't know if you know this, but Apple "copied" LG when LG released the LG Prada, both in physical design and the GUI (four main icon controls at the bottom of the screen). Motorola released the first touchscreen phone in 1993, and they have made them ever since. HAVEN'T YOU EVER WATCHED AUSTIN POWERS: GOLDMEMBER?

The iphone is the most overhyped piece of shit in the mobile world. So many phones that are better, and don't crack on the back or freeze up a ton. Apple has way to much control over these things, wouldn't be suprised if they are monitoring people. Cause they can do that.. I will stick with other phones, Apple sucks and always has.

Best mobile phone on the North American market today... Everyone wants to point at the Diamond like they know something, well it's not coming until September 2nd on Sprint and a month later for Verizon... I have GSM, and I'm waiting it out for a while to get a Touch Pro... I'll most likely cook up my own ROM so I can use it in the states with 3G before release, but you can't say there's a better "bang-for-your-buck" solution than the iPhone right now.

Okay, ignoring these other posts.... For those of you wondering how the update is behaving; it has fixed many problems that annoyed me about my 3G model. Don't expect anything drastic like MMS or voice dialing (you can get a third party app for the Voice dial). Instead, it's fixed little things that annoyed the crap out of us in this iteration. Remember how you felt when you updated from 1.1.4 and found that your iPhone now handles your long list of 100+ contacts like a retarded toddler on Heroin? Well, that's gone. It does take a second for the list to pop up, but only a second, not 10-15, an it's super responsive as soon as it does. The sluggish keyboard is out the door, it's just as tight and quick as you remembered before 2.0. So, SMS your little hearts out. Heck I even spent the past 15 mins blogging lag free. So, that's a welcome fix. Apple also took into account the Safari crashes. Those didn't bother me as much, cause it reminded me of when I first got the iPhone, 1.0 crashed on me like a mofo, 2.0 crashes were acceptable compared to that. 2.0.1 puts those crashes to bed. along with the third party app crashes, but I think it's from the multitudes of app updates that have taken place over the past two weeks. It doesn't fix the long syncs, however. This goes all the way back to old 1.0 (that was fixed by the time 1.0.1 came around). iTunes will continue to take forever to back-up, it is a little bit. I suggest just downloading new apps via iTunes for now to avoid this back-up debacle. Something almost unnoticeable is the tint of the screen. somehow, Apple was able to keep the sharpness of the new 3G phones, but got rid of the slightly yellow hue. Weird, they said it was to add higher contrast and sharpness, but they got rid of it, and still kept the higher contrast and sharpness. The battery meter is slightly more accurate, but I've only had the update for about 8 hours, so that still needs to be seen. Hopefully, all the rumors are true about 2.1 and we get that soon.

You guys are idiots. 3g iPhone is one of the best phones on the market. Firmware upgrades help improve the phone. Other phone companies don't even do that with their phones. I would get one but att is the only thing that's stopping me from getting one. Their service sucks.what really sucks though is how att and apple extended their contract one more year. Also apple is coming out with an iPhone nano which should be interesting

I gave mine back after 2 weeks and went back to VZW... I don't care what they update on this phone it will never fix ATT's crap network. I live in NY and have no 3g service in buildings...Whats that crap? With VZW I had 3g indoors about 98% of the time. Also dropped calls a big issue...I dropped more calls in the two than I did in the past 4 yrs with VZ. Iphone is nice n all but I need a phone, not a fancy toy that cannot perform because of the network. Goodluck all of you guys spending all that money a month for such poor service

LOL I have a $30 phone and never needed a software update because IT DOESNT FREEZE OR CRASH. Your all idiots...spend more time plugging your phone in updating shit praying it works rather than actually using it. Also, my $30 phone has stero bluetooth, MMS, Video Record and an OS that doesn't crash....have fun rebooting!

Of course your phone doesn't need software update, because is a $30 piece of sh*t. You shouldn't be commenting on stuff you don't know, go back and play with your $30 phone.

Try a Nokia E71 and you'll drop your iPhone, at least if you write more than 3 sms/email per day. Rock solid, so many features built in (my favourite is the name card scanner) and no jail break needed as you can use. Another favourite of mine: install the free Joikuspot on your Nokia phone to get - a mobile broadband Wifi access point (e.g. for your iPod Touch)!!!

Nokia is the best (smart) phone maker, Blackberry is the best maker of messaging devices and Apple knows who to make multimedia devices. And, well, Windows Mobile is for those who like devices with a reset button (sorry I couldn't find a positive differentiator). If the HTC Diamond only ran on a decent operating system...

ok. For those of you who are wondering about the update, there is another major issue that 2.0.1 fixes and that is the wifi signal strength indicator. When I upgraded to 2.0 I noticed that I could be standing right next to my wordless router and the signal would go up and down for wifi. It was very annoying. 2.0.1 fixed this. other than that JLTs post explained all the other fixes. Oh and please take down these childish posts on bashing the iPhone. I don't care that people do but there is a room for that. I had a hard time trying to find a post on the 2.0.1 fixes and had to keep going thru and readingthese dumb ass iPhone bashing posts. This blog needs a moderator for people who take this seriously.

I just updated to the 2.0.1 and I cant see any difference. My contact list is still tweaked out everytime i open it and occassionally my keyboard will freeze while in the sms app. The update seemed to be pointless.

Try a restore. Some people even had problems with app crashes with the update when the original didn't do that. It's timely, but restore will clear the ROM of any residual code left form 2.0 and get you off and running.
