I do not think “hacker tactics” will hold up in court as a valid term now that the Library of Congress ruled unlocking a iPhone is legal.
Unlock does however void the warranty...
Out on the periphery of AT&T coverage when 3G and EDGE coverage overlap, the 3G can get brutally slow at peak usage hours.
Doesn’t this sort of massive fraud rise to the level of a felony?
Today is Jim Robinsons birthday..If you havent donated to FR, today would be a good day to give.
I’ll second the BS call. I upgraded my iPodTouch 2G to 4.0 without problem. I did however had to shut off unnecessay location services and push notifications to maintain battery performance.
I just got off the phone with AT&T. I am about to go to store right now and upgrade from 3G to 4. Should I? I kinda have to, but I wanna hear that the problems with 4 are fixed. I just can’t live without my IPhone.
LOL. What kind of idiot would buy a telephone (or other device, for that matter) in the first place where the manufacturer gets to tell you after the sale what or what not you are allowed to do with it?
IMO the iPhone may be a fun toy for some, but actually is a totally expendable fashion accessory (which I and probably most can do without as easily as doing without any news of the current crop of celebrity sluts... - think Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and all the others whose recent adventures get posted here all the time).
I pay for it - I control it. Or I do not buy it. Period.

I agree that the 3GS is fine. But... my family has 5 iPhones, and our 3 3G users are all experiencing much worse performance since “upgrading” to iOS. My 3GS is fine, but the 3G phones are MUCH slower with iOS doing basic tasks like opening up the Notes app, opening up text messaging, etc. I am a Mac owner since my 128K Mac in 1984, and I love my iPad, but the 3G phones were screwed over by iOS.
We are moving to 4Gs, but I am disappointed that the 4.01 and 4.02 upgrades have not fixed the 3G phones. Bottom line I’m a pretty big Apple fan, but believe in calling things as I see them - Apple seriously compromised the 3G phones with iOS, and it’s hard to imagine they did not know this before releasing it.
But let me clarify - I VOLUNTARILY said yes. I was not forced to update to iOS4.
And that being said, Apple did later issue further updates that helped iPhone 3G devices to get beyond some of the issues. That being said, my iPhone was already having other issues (screen-related), and eventually, I replaced it with an iPhone 4. I sold my old 3G with the dead screen for nearly $100 on eBay (fully disclosed). I don't think I came out of that so badly. The 3GS phones were nowhere near as bogged down or crippled by iOS4. Some users had some drastic battery life issues show up, that appear to have been corrected in the latest update. New features were added that were a step up (I really like having folders). Lawsuit? I just don't see it. Had I just purchased a brand new iPhone 3G (where would I have found one at that time, other than through grey-market sources), taken it home, and immediately had it update to iOS4... and even then, I'm not sure trouble would have been so apparent on a factory-fresh iPhone. I do think that Apple should have blocked 3G phones from being updated at all to iOS4. My theory on the troubles with that OS and the 3G - the code for multi-tasking was only partially disabled on 3G models - (apps stayed in memory after quit - a known fact-though you could not access them via multitasking). The phone had only 128MB ram... of which, nearly 100MB was utilized by iOS4.
