    No more car phone with 1.1.1?

    Be warned that I bought this seidio adapter and it reduces the volume coming from the phone by about 80%. I get full volume when connected directly to the iPhone but when it goes through the seidio adapter it is barely audible.

    I have not updated yet as I would like to figure out for sure what process works to keep my custom ringtones. Yours is the only process that has worked (in terms of keeping the iTunes workaround ring tones) without any problems. So whatever you did, you did it right! When you say, "I did a...
