I have a question, If you have mods and you want to keep it, why would you update?
Its my Jeep I want to add bigger tires, Its my computer I want to install my programs, its my PC i want to liquid cool it, its my phone and I want my ring tones and my apps not yours.
And on a side note if I break my Jeep because I added 33inch tires and the axle snapped its my problem not Jeeps, If i install a program on my computer thats a virus and my system crashes its my fault not Apple or Dell or MS's fault, and i I install a ringtone or a Tip Calculator or MobileMoney on MY phone and it breaks my phone its not Apples fault and I would expect to hear a "Sorry Sir, but you installed those at your own risk and we don't support that"
working as a techie and Network Engineer for YEARS, I have often told people "Sorry but that was an unsupported program and if you would like help on that issue your going to have to call XXXXX company and have them help you" So this Apple "supporting" the apps is a weak argument. But a day after a way to get ringtones on your phone was found iTunes comes up with an update. A couple days after another work around another iTunes update and iPhone update. So please not supporting and shutting down are 2 totally different things.
I think that the bluetooth wheel always spins because it is constantly looking for new devices. At least that is what mine does and I have not updated yet.As I said previously, even though I was getting (and still am) the spinning dial as you are, I was nevertheless able to make a call using my Apple iPhone bluetooth device. I merely turned the bluetooth off then back on, and when making a call, pressed the button again briefly til I heard the short beep, and got the speaker icon to change to "audio" where I selected bluetooth. Also, as I noted earlier in another post, I still am not getting the bluetooth battery charge indicator when I first turn on my phone and both the phone and bluetooth are in the cradle.
Now, just for the heck of it, I went to settings where that spinning dial is still displayed, and clicked on the box that says "iPhone Bluetooth Headset", then chose to "un-pair". I was unable to "pair" it back using the iPhone. So, I then pulled out my bluetooth instruction booklet. From that I was able to "re-pair" my bluetooth again. I took both the iPhone and the bluetooth out of the cradle, as the instructions stated. I then turned the bluetooth OFF (holding down the top button til you hear the descending tones). Then, turn it back on (hold the button down again, until you hear the ascending tones). I then briefly pressed that button again and and heard a very short "beep". At that point, a screeen popped up on my iPhone, asking me to enter a "pin code". From the instruction booklet, it tells you to enter "pin code" 0000 (unless of course you have previously modified the code). I entered 0000, and my phone told me I was no "paired" again. When this happened, the little bluetooth battery icon up on top next to the battery icon appeared. It had not been showing previously, but of course, my phone and bluetooth were in the cradle then.
Although my bluetooth is working, and my phone is showing the bluetooth little icon up top (when both phone and bluetooth are removed from the cradle), when I click on settings, general, bluetooth, it STILL shows that little spinning dial, even though in the box below it says "paired". And I still don't show the bluetooth battery indicator on my phone when I first start it up (the big one). I am however, able to make calls using the bluetooth without problem.
Furthermore, sure you can add the third party apps! What does anyone here care? but you have to expect Apple (who ranks intellectual property number 1) to do something to prevent it.
Just a thought.
