Life with the iPhone 3G, one week later

Life with the iPhone 3G, one week later
In our initial review we noted several problems we’ve had with the software, but the list just keeps growing and we are growing increasingly less patient. Our latest issue is that the screen has shrunk. The view remains the same, but along the top and left there are five or six rows of unused pixels. On the bottom there are a few rows, and the left side has one or two unused rows as well.

We have encountered several more lockups, restarts and overall unstableness. There have been numerous user reports of data being erased when the phone syncs with iTunes, MobileMe still not working properly and SIM card read errors that require a new phone.

Our issue with the screen shrink may be an isolated problem, but many users reported that they have one or another issue. If Apple doesn’t fix these problems soon, we will have to lower the rating of the iPhone 3G.

Let us know if you have experienced any software/hardware issues with your iPhones at news@phonearena.com. As soon as we get more information or answer from Apple will let you know.
