Att changed the upgrade rules. If you qualify within July, Aug, and Sept, you can upgrade now with no additional fees. Oh, you need to wait until the 18th to check on this. Will still show higher price today.

Installed on iPod Touch 2g with a minor issue to report. After the update was all done, I disconnected the Touch, went into Music.... only to find nothing. I thought, okay, I need to re-sync the playlists I guess. So I plugged it back in, it synced back and I saw in the usage bar that my audio was still on the Touch. I disconnected again, went into Music, and no go. Nada, Zip.

So I figured, shoot, I need to restore. Plugged it back in a 3rd time, but I noticed syncing was taking slightly longer this time around. I disconnected it, went into music, and I saw "Rebuilding Library" or something similar. VoilĂ , music was back!

So far I can't really tell if it's any faster or slower. Sometimes it feels slightly faster, sometimes slower, depends what I do. So all is good I guess

I can't seem to find a definite answer, but is there a Jailbreak available for OS 3.0 already? (iPhone 3G)
post #20 of 27
Not yet. But I believe the dev team broke the codes already so it must be just a matter of time.

Is the 3.0 version a little bit snappier than than the previous versions found on the iPhone 3G? Mine is a little bit sluggish atm

Unfortunately, I don't qualify. I think you need to be on one of their $99+ a month plans to get the inexpensive upgrade.

Oh, well. I see that Buy and Sell Electronics, Sell Cell Phone, Recycle Electronics - gazelle.com will give me $170 for the 3G, so $30 more isn't the end of the world.

What does cheese me off is that new customers will get the better price while someone who has given them about $4,000 over the past five years isn't someone they want to keep around. I stay under my minutes and haven't called customer service - I'm easy money for them.

I'll stick around until the exclusivity deal is through. Then I'll go to another carrier unless they give me a free phone and/or a better deal on a contract.

cell phone companies aren't about service...they're not about rewarding loyal customers...they're about getting new customers under draconian 2-year contracts.

i don't fault at&t for not subsidizing the phone price to those who upgraded last year, though, as those people got their phones subsidized and at&t needs to make back their money. at&t didn't do anything different with iphone subsidies than they do with all the other subsidized phones they have...

what i absolutely think is criminal is at&t charging an $18 "upgrade fee" as well as an $18 activation fee for upgrading from my 2G plan to the new plan.

v.3.0 is working great on the 1G iPhone. I'm going to be giving it to my wife and getting a 3G S probably tomorrow...or at least ordering one...

Seems like I'm gonna have to restore my iTouch 2g ; the plays still don't get synced properly, even after a full reset. Hopefully the restore will work...

I updated a bunch of CDs from mp3 to ALAC, so maybe it screwed something up in the iTouch when the new format got synced back. I was starting to get the same problem pre-3.0 but far less worse tho.

3.0 runs fine on my iPod Touch 2G. Runs smoother than the previous firmware IMO.

EDIT: On another note Adhoc networking from computer to my Touch = fail.
