T-Mobile tells subscribers 'don't update to iOS 10'

T-Mobile tells subscribers 'don't update to iOS 10'
T-Mobile is warning its iPhone totin' subscribers not to update their device to iOS 10. On the carrier's website, T-Mobile says that the update is causing some Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus and Apple iPhone SE units to lose connectivity. As a result, the nation's third largest carrier is advising iPhone customers to wait until Apple issues a fix before installing iOS 10.

Just a couple of days ago, several iPhone users found their device bricked when trying to install iOS 10. Apple said it had resolved the issue, and told those receiving the error message to try downloading the new iOS build by using iTunes. If that failed, Apple told them to call Apple support.

T-Mobile says that it expects Apple to push out a fix for the problem sometime in the next 48 hours. Until that arrives, there is a workaround. Those iPhone users who installed iOS 10 and have lost connectivity can temporarily solve the problem by powering down the phone, and then powering it back up.

Absolutely NOT T-Mobile's fault. Apple keeps dropping the ball on software updates. They're terrible. So many complaints that iOS 10 is slow.

I'm on AT&T and I've had no problems. The problem is in T-mobiles substandard network being unable to handle the OTA that Apple pushed out. You pay cheap (AKA T-mobile) and you get cheap.

Pretty sure that most people update over WiFi, so T-Mobile's network quality is completely irrelevant.

You and Mxy must drink from the same cup of Apple flavored kool-aid.

They don't drink it, they straight up sniff the Apple kool-aid powder, no water required.

Take out the "v" and add "dr" would get what you really meant to say.

His comeback was so lame I didn't even bother replying LOL. Funny how he says "Back for another beating I see." while he is always the one getting beat.

Exactly! This guy gets slaughtered through the comments section all of the time.

You wish. You couldn't slaughter a paper bag in a huge rainstorm.

LMFAO that's some grade-A s#!t right there! I assume they do the lines right off of Tim's c00k (EG: ever heard of a "Sheenis"?)...

A cup of kool-aid from Apple is worth more than a blackberry device.

Thanks for admitting that you're a zombified $#33p hooked on the Apple flavored Kool-aid and stuck in that RDF of theirs.

And you're a zombified blackberry shill.
