Ok I've read through page 13 of this thread and didn't see anyone mention the change I did find. For all you guys out there bitching that there are no "real" changes, try this on for size... Go into your contacts and scroll up and down. The alphabet headers are now transparent! Forget MMS and forget copy/paste... this is the real deal here... Can someone confirm this for me because I'm too cheap to own more than one iPhone.... </sarcasm>
I'm still running 1.1.3 on my nonjailbroken iPhone (too lazy to upgrade.) And I have transparent alphabet headers, too.

It just depends on the amount of contacts, bookmarks, or calendar entries you have.
Nah, 200 MB is far too much for that. Heck, my Treo had a third of that on-board memory and without loading apps still had most of it free. Heck, I had about the same amount of contacts, calendar entries, mail, and even to-do list entries on my old Palm V--and that only had 2 megabytes of memory.

Other is supposed to be anything on the media partition not recognized by iTunes. However, I know for a fact that the 200 MB figure is bogus, as it was there before syncing anything via iTunes (I did a full restore to 1.1.4, which wipes both partitions).

So what's the verdict then? What is this other? Support for third party apps from the SDK maybe?

OK. I reported that the BT with my H700 was now 100%. The BT connection with the Infiniti (M45) handsfree is also much better. The pairing sticks and the volume is improved. I had to readjust the car's BT settings to compensate for the increased volume. Clarity also seems better, but I can't validate that.

I think it might be a problem with iTunes. I checked free space (df -h) and it showed nothing unusual--but iTunes insists there is a huge chunk of other.

Maybe ringtones take up some of it, or would they be included in audio?


EDIT: I just tested this and:

I know that if iTunes doesn't recognize the data type, or if you interrupt a sync and say, a movie was bing uploaded and only got 3/4th of the way down, that all shows up as Other. At least till it's corrected.

Hey All,
I hate to be one of those people but I have to be. I read somewhere this morning that the 1.4 could be jailbreaked and unlocked. Of course I cannot find the page I read this on and am now thinking the fumes of the cars from my drive into work have left me a little :p. So, is it possible...I believe that 1.4 hasn't been unlocked yet but I also believe in the Vancouver Canucks as well:eek:. Am I missing something here or is it the fumes....
Thanks

Hello fosterhere it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

THE CASE OF THE GHOST iPHONE

Since I upgraded to 1.1.4, iPhoto reports that 2 iPhones are connected to my laptops (both MBP and MBA). It doesn't happen with the MacPro.

Ghost outlines of pictures appear in the window of the ghost iPhone. If I try to "import" them, iPhoto reports that they do have a name, but they can't be imported because "they do not exist".

Not a big deal, I guess, but weird anyway.
