This phone is a real piece of crap! Nothing works anymore since 2.0.2! My email accounts can't connect ever...doesn't matter if i'm on edge, 3g or wifi! It keeps freezing.....i've rebooted and restored at least 15 times since this update! This phone is about 10 seconds away from being blown up!~!

You are, I had no problem with my v1 iPhone. Now with my 3G im on my second iPhone in 3 weeks and I might return this one because the lock button is flush with my phone and I have to press it really hard to lock it.

Shall we start another class action? ;)

Only in America.
yes, I was gonna say, there is already one pending lol. Im not gonna go into details but I will say my V1 had a lot less issues them my new 3g has. I have patients tho, so I am willing to hang on and see if Apple can get things fixed.

Personally I think Apple needs to decide if it's a software company, or hardware company. It's not done a very good job at all being a software company and really should give it up. Let Microsoft take over or something!

There are hardly any problems with Windoze mobile, compared to Mobile OSX.

Are you getting refurbished phones? I can understand one maybe two not working but it sounds like your on your third phone. If it were me I'd keep taking it back till they;

A) Gave me one that worked or

B) Gave me my money back.

I went on the first Iday and picked up a v1 8gig. It worked well and I had only one issue with the mute button. They replaced the phone. I have a 150 dollar Apple gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I have been to my local Apple store(s) about 10 times. However, I have not been able to part with my v1.

Today for example I played with some 3g iPhones in the local store. I turned off their wifi and enabled 3g, and then I compared their connection speed to my v1 running edge. I used inetworktest.com/results. My v1 had faster download speeds then 3 of the iPhones with version 2.0 software. The one phone I tested with version 2.0.1 updated software had faster speeds then my phone. I did not look at all the iPhones there but none that I tested had 2.0.2. I thought that was interesting. I left with my v1 in a new case.

I really am not sure if I will get this new phone or wait for something better to come along....
