Could it BE any MORE disapointing?

It seems like a bunch of not so important stuff while the real faults/lacks of the phone go un fixed...Just my opinion.

And that latest version is what? if it is 1.1.3 you are fine, you have it. And you have no problems?

I have the current version of iTunes, 7.6 but it won't allow me to download the update for the iPhone. When I go to menu and "check updates" it tells me I have the current version (iTunes). But when I plug in the iPhone and it says do I want to download etc I say yes and minutes later I get the "error" that "the network connection isn't working, etc". Should I go to the Apple website and just re-download it? I am so frustrated! But thanks for your help!

I don't know if this has been mention but when I added EIC to my homescreen it made a very nice icon. Can anyone explain how this happened and are there any other sites where this happens?
Apparently it's something the site administrator can place in the root folder of the site. Kudos to chris for picking up on this technique so quickly for his members... Nice work!

Ringtone

I finally found THE ringtone thanks to akophone "Cell Phone Ringing". iPhone updates have both disabled and enabled the ability to use this ringtone without hacking. Do you know if the new version disables this again? Thanks.

With software version 1.1.2, I created custom ringtones for my iPhone. I took an MP3 clip, converted to AAC, deleted both from my iTunes library, changed the extension of the file to .m4r and then added it back to my library so it was recognized as a ringtone. I synched these ringtones to my iPhone.

If someone has done this and then upgrades from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3, can you please let us know if these custom ringtones are still there or if this has been "fixed." I am on the fence about upgrading to 1.1.3 if we can no longer do this.
Same here. Have your searched and found anything else. I used the rename trick because I refuse to hack my phone. I now have the one and only ringtone I care about and would like to keep it. Thanks, --Ed

The ringtones stick around if you upgrade to iTunes 7.6 and work with 1.1.3 firmware so no worries about losing the ringtones.
iTunes 7.6.0.29, iPhone 1.1.2 to be upgraded to 1.1.3 when sync'ed with iTunes. --Ed

My fav ringtone was erased by the 1.1.3 upgrade but the renaming still works (thanks Apple) so its back again. However, I crashed my iPhone and had to do a factory restore then upload my backup. This appears to have happened due to upgrading over a wireless connection. --Ed
:p

The ring tones you made before the upgrade will still be there. I have not tried the same method to make new ring tones on 1.1.3, so I have no clues on that, but for sure the ringtones in the phone remains.

Actually, the upgrade did delete the ringtone but the capability to create it remained. So it was a simple task to put it back. --Ed

the ONE thing that is missing that would have been REALLY useful is the ability to send and receive MMS! I need this feature for my work. My cheap Samsung (three phones ago even had this. Why is it so difficult for the iPhone to be able to do this? GRRRRRRRR!

Because Apple is different. It's very possible that they won't ever add this on their own because they know it is possible to email photos via email on the iPhone. We haven't seen it in 6 months in.
