iPhone OS 3.1.2 is released to kill bugs dead
Apple has released iPhone OS 3.1.2 which fixes a few bugs in the device. One issue that is supposed to be fixed is a problem that sometimes would not let the iPhone wake up from sleep mode (no, it is not contagious to humans!). Also resolved is the problem where the cellular network would occasionally get interrupted until the phone was restarted. Lastly, a bug that crashed the unit during video streaming also was removed. Besides those three bugs, other minor things were fixed. An AT&T carrier update was included with OS 3.1.2, which brings that version to 5.6. So hook up your iPhone with iTunes, grab the updated OS and after you install it on your phone, let us know if you see any changes.

Funny thing, I was actually going to restore my iPhone yesterday evening (due to non-stop locking up), then noticed an update when I entered iTunes that was 'supposed' to fix the locking up issues that I was having since the 3.1 update. I'm happy to say that I haven't had any glitches on my device since the update.... Hope it stays that way!

The only problem I have is receiving MMS from other mobile devices that have a larger MP camera then the iPhone 3gs such as the BlackBerry Tour....any other mobile device that have a smaller or same MP camera as the iPhone 3gs I receive fine!... anybody else have this problem?

Since Verizon is in the AIR ...what's going to happen to all the iPhone haters once the iPhone comes to verizon? yup they will be waiting in those longggg lines...if it ever lands with """America's Largest and Most Reliable Wireless Network""" which is false when you do a side-by-side comparison with Verizon super slow web browser and iPhone super fast Safari! face it! nothing will never come close to being as fast as the iPhone.

What are you talking about? Verizon is more reliable unlike AT&T. The iPhone safari browser is fast but what about when you make calls? Depending on what part of the country you are in, they probably drop like crazy. Anyways, there are tons of phones that are faster than the iphone including ones that are on Verizon and probably even AT&T. If Verizon gets the iphone, AT&T is going to lose a lot of customers.

I agree the biggest concern is reception ...if that is important to you... I just made the switch to AT&T from being a 4 year customer of VZW and have had every Smartphone, PDA..etc... from HTC, LG, to Samsung and so on! none of those can even come close to being as fast and dependable as the iPhone.... everything around you is iPhone and 90% of all companies now have iPhone Apps as we all know....and my reception status is same as VZW I get the same dropped calls in the same areas I get the same amount of bars as I did with VZW. All devices have their flaws but once you get a hold of an iPhone you go 99% flawless and it's only going to get better.

what are you smoking. opera 5.0 browser blows the safari browser out of the park. it's like being on wifi. i use the full site for facebook, it's that fast. i would never use an iphone even if it was given to me for free...i'm baffled as to how many people hate the storm. i love the touchscreen, i bet i can type faster than all you tour users. it has autocomplete which helps a lot :-).

I'm just speaking off my experience with my iPhone...and opera 5.0 for what device? I bet opera is its best feature...you cant do nothing with whatever device you have.... Blackberry sucks! the reason why all these new touch screen devices by blackberry, htc, samsung, lg fail is because they are trying to hard to make it come close to an iPhone...nothing will never come close...again its Apple and just like in the computing world Apple dominates!!! And yes you would take a free iPhone anyday...

no i would definitly not take an iphone because i see no reason why i would have to switch from my storm to an iphone. opera 5.0 for my storm bro. the storm is an awesome phone and is better than the iphone. i can do just as much with my storm if not more than your iphone.

Yea the storm is cute...I prefer brains over beauty! but again..it's been proven by..cnet, engadget, phonearena, crackberry...that the iPhone blows the Storm away! So how is the wifi on your Storm?

13. vzw fanman

Posts: 1977; Member since: Dec 11, 2008

i don't need wifi with opera mini 5.0. and wait till the storm 2 comes out :-). i just found out the storm 2 comes with a pre-installed 16gb card too! how is your removable memory on the iphone coming along bud?

15. Trendygirlx23 unregistered

The iphone is a good phone but it fails because it is missing so many basic features. I hate that it doesn't have removable memory. The iphone just got MMS...that is pretty pathetic. I could go on and on about all the things that it is missing from that phone.

haha...well I really don't care about removable storage and I back up on my computer anyhow, even when I had a BlackBerry. By the way I am sure removable storage will will come to the iPhone! along with a few amazing features in the iPhone 4gS! Apple has the technology to build the ultimate iPhone...but what would be next for them? nothing... it all about the money. And the fact that iPhone just got MMS was not an Apple issue but an AT&T issue, the iPhone always supported it.

vzw fanman, im not trying to be a dick or anything, but can you cut it out with the gayt&t comments? It offends me and im straight. Its like using the "N" word over and over and over.....it slowly annoys you until you have to voice your opinion about it.....just relax, grow up, and ease up on the "GayT&T" thing......

22. vzw fanman

it isn't even close to the n word dude. everyone knows what gay means in that context so it shouldn't offend anyone. using the n word in any context is just not right.

Bb storm is sucks! All these companies trying very hard to have an IPhone like. A bunch of copy cat. They need to stop followingg apple coat trail and come with their on stuff or something better of what apple already dominating on... I will rather a real IPhone and a real apps store like the mighty iphone has than a iphone wanna be apps store.

Verizon sucks! I had verizon in a small town and didn't work for shit, talk about dropped calls. When I called them they kept transferring me to tech who didn't know shit, I finally got fed up and canceled the service and they even waived my etf now I have AT&T and yes it does dropp calls in the big cities because of the towerd being over crowed cause they have so many customers so that's why verizons calls don't drop as often because they don't have over loading on their towers and they don't share towers cause their technology is old (cdma). Also verizon was offered the iphone first and they didn't want it since they see how good it did and how many customers at&t took from them now they want in, they will never catch up to at&t thats why we keep taking their customers.

Hey vzw fanman I couldn't help but read some of your posts and have been laughing my ass off. Have you even seen or even played with and iphone? Some of your comments are just plain stupid. First off your auto complete ability on your BB storm , the iphone has the same thing if not something better. It not only finishes what you are typing but remembers what words you have used in the past. Im sure the BB has it too so don't think that BB or VZ invented or patened it. As for comparing your Opera browswer speed against wifi, are you kidding me? You are telling me that your non wifi phone is going to beat a phone that can download at speeds of 7.2 megs? I would love for you to come to my house and put your phone against mine and race. Mine of course will be linked to my wifi and my internet package has speeds of 15 megs but my phone can only handle 7. I don't care how good the browser is its not going to beat that. As for quality of browser and your facebook example again your kidding right? You log on to opera and go to facebook while I'll just tap my app and I bet I win.. The Safari browser has beaten not only the BB browser but the Opera's browser in pretty much every test that has been done on them. If you love your storm that much thats great and all the power to you but be real when you say its a way better phone than the iphone. It's been ripped apart by every critic on the planet not too mention BB pretty much started form square 1 on the newer version coming out. I think the only thing that is the same is the shell. If it was so awesome VZ wouldn't have made it a BOGO product so fast. Like I said everyone can feel how they please about there phone and carrier but facts are facts in the end my friend. One last thing you have the edicate of a mule when it comes to yor responce to trentsinmypants comment. That word is ignorant in any text. Maybe we can talk about it at the Klan meeting later tonight.. ....

majicc07, you are very funny. first off, thank you for reading some of my posts... if you think my comment was unacceptable, why didn't you respond to me there? the storm has a bad rep, what can i say. but now it is awesome. and i'm not just talking about any opera. it's opera 5.0 BETA. it's way faster than the iphone. and yes i have played with an iphone and even kept one for a week end. 3 of my best bros have an iphone. i know what it's capable of! the iphone app doesn't even come close to the original facebook website. yes my storm also remembers words. also, i can watch abc, cbs and nbc LIVE, no recordings...and the keyboard is better, can you say suretype? i think we have potential to be best buddies dude :-).
