Strange how I ask everyone I see with an iPhone if they updated it and they respond with how... Some are still using the original otb software..

Had one in the office two weeks ago did not know about 1.1.3 so I just put him on the path to the upgrade.

I've talked to a lot of other iPhone owners that have no idea about the updates. They see my modded iPhone and start asking questions, then I find out they're still on the original firmware. I always point them in the upgrading direction of course.

The girl that works at my kids orthodontist office always has hers sitting on her desk. I asked her what she thought about the new upgrade and she said "huh?". She didn't even have the iTunes store upgrade. She has not done a thing since she bought it in July. I showed her my jb phone. She was amazed that my icons were different and the background wasn't black and I had games. She wanted to know how I did it and I told her to come to this sight to learn how to do stuff. Everything I have done I learned here!:laugh2:

It's funny because my friend across the street who has seen what I've done with my iPhone also thinks like I can hack into banks, or people's computer because of it. :p

i always find it funny that i ask people who you like 1.1.3 and they are always like hu?
whats that? i tell them that it is an update and they replay, "there are updates? i thought that it was just an ipod that is a phone, i was not sure there was updates...."

i find it weird that this happens...i haven't found a person that knows anything about the phone other then how to use it...

yes that is true... i don't think that they are fools, i just think that im more into it then they are.. and we both [ the people that i meet with iPhones that don't know anything about them] know that im more into it then they are... and they like learning about it and i like telling them about it.. and i ALWAYS mention EIC ....

has the 10 character minimum been removed?

I've seen people write now "fools" and "beef" in single posts, with nothing else.

how?

I can see how some people out of the box wouldn't know about updates since most regular cell phones don't have them. But if they ever owned an ipod I would assume the would know something about them.

Secondly these people never sync their phones or add new songs? I mean it tells you there is an update when you sync the thing, thats what I don't understand.

Although some people never update anything. I was at a friends apartment in the city and she was playing music on iTunes, I looked at the screen and was like wow how old is that version, she was running version 4.something, I couldnt believe it. And she has a nano that she connects sometimes, she said she turned all the updates off when she first downloaded iTunes.
