    Im Itune reports firmware 4.0.2 still. I hit Download button and it Downloars 4.1 ! Lol at Apple once more.

  • Already had GM last week ^_~.

  • Wuju

    i’ll be waiting for the dev team to give the green light with the jailbreak ability.

  • Hosein

    I already have tried to update for 2 times, but once the file is downloaded, I receive an error message saying that the connection is timed out! err = -3259
    I don’t know wtf is wrong with itunes, cuz I don’t have any issues with my network.

  • Noahattic

  • Anyone notice any preformance improvements on the 3G’s? Mine has been borderline unusable since i loaded 4.0.

  • Hosein

    Updated without a glitch. Did not experienced the proximity sensor issue before so hopefully nothing will change with that update. Apparently field test mode is back and we can see db signal strength.

  • Reals? Mine got a performance boost. A lot of people I have helped had
    their issues resolved by restoring fresh (not restoring from a backup)

  • Anonymous

    So far it’s looking a lot better. I just had my first 22 minute phone call on the iPhone 4 without hanging up (with my cheek), ear dialing, or activating random apps!

    That’s one issue down. Now lets see if it keeps dropping Rogers or makes pictures look like they are taken by candlelight.

  • Cshupe2

    anybodys game center not working? when i go to games nothing comes up

  • Jbohn

    Everything seems good to me but I’ve only had my iPhone for 6 days so far. One couple I encountered already I see is fixed, hoping the other few that I found are as well!

  • Eason_1108

    still slow on my 3G ><

  • Kevinjmain

    4.1 does not fix proximity sensor, mine still a problem.

  • Hmm… Mine is fixed… although mine was never an issue :/

  • iPhone4crazy

    What is dB signal strength and how do I activate it?

  • Guest

    Hello All,

    Just updated to this version and all my folders and settings are gone. Anyones facing this issue ?

  • tfung15

    try disabling your antivirus and/or firewall when you are updating and installing. i had this problem until i temporary disabled my nod32.

  • Pdng

    Just updated to 4.1 without any problems at all. The HDR option is amazing! I was skeptical beforehand but tested it on some questionable areas and the pics came out looking way better! Looking forward to uploading HD videos via wi-fi and no proximity sensor hangups (no pun intended) 🙂

    After installing 4.1 today, Rogers is the only carrier that shows up under carrier settings. Previously, I had Telus and Bell as well (unlocked iphone). Does this mean my phone is now locked to Rogers? Anyone else had this happen?

  • iphoneinregina

    oh, false alarm. I tried a couple more times, and the other carriers showed up finally. Whew!

  • My phone shows Rogers, telus, and bell too. My was bought on contract
    upgrade, meaning it’s locked. Or…. I got super lucky and they
    unlocked it lol jk

    Yes, my first impression, after updating my 3G about a half hour ago, is that my phone is much improved. The phone is much more responsive to touch motions and apps open very quick. Safari opens and loads website way quicker than on iOS 4.0. So far no freezing, which plagued my phone before. Of course, this is only after 30 minutes, so let’s see how I feel after a day or two. To be honest, I can’t even remember the days when my phone worked properly, so this is a real treat.

    Can’t seem to get the update on iTunes in Canada. Its not even posted on the website… Huh?

  • I updated my 3G last night and still this morning it is much faster than it was on 4.0. The biggest difference I noticed is the maps. GPS is actually usable now. Texts send faster. And another positive is that my keyboard responds immediately rather than freezing and delaying all the time.

    When I first got the iPhone 4 and activated it and loaded my backup info onto the phone and everything worked great, calling and texting worked, but if I tried to access the internet it would say “Could Not Activate Cellular Data Network. You are not subcribed to a cellular data service”. Which is BS cause u can’t get the phone w/o a data plan. I called Fido and they tried to reset my network settings and everything but it still wouldn’t connect to the data network. So what I had to do was set up my iPhone 4 as a NEW PHONE and then it started connecting to the data network.

    NOW, I just recently updated the iSO to the iSO 4.1 and the same thing is happening again. What do I do???

    I just upgraded my iPhone 3G to OS4.1 and the performance is night and day – for the better!! It was definitely worth upgrading
