    Default [1.1.3 (1.1.1 OTB)][RANT!!] Everything's working but SCREW IT!

    Well, I'd been holding out on upgrading my 1.1.1 for like three months until last night.. Everything's "working", but I'm really mad! Google Locate puts me near Sri Lanka even though I'm in Russia now, my text messages are a mess due to that timestamp bug, my favorite NetServices app I handle Edge with doesn't function properly on 1.1.3 and I had to settle for BossPrefs with its ugly oversized icon on my springboard, but unlike NetServices after shutting down Edge it leaves that ugly solid block (GPRS) staring at me... not a biggie, but anyway! SSHing is another hassle - looks like when the phone goes to sleep it breaks WiFi, so I have to set unlock to Never to be able to keep the SSH session alive... Multiple SMS? I hardly ever use that! Was it worth it? Not for me! You know, the only reason I wanted 1.1.3 was that Google's pseudo-GPS thing... But locating (dislocating!) me 3000 miles off?????!! I know it may work way better in the US, but I typically have no problem telling where I am when I'm stateside!! I need it when I'm traveling! Kinda defeats the purpose if you ask me... Anyway, don't feel like having modem mismatch going back or downgrading the modem and whatnot.. I guess I'll stay here, unsatisfied, waiting for the next FW to be made ziphonable!

    It's not about the frequency of use, it's about the frustration of use... Yeah, I can hide it, but like I said Locate Me was the only reason for me to upgrade...

    doesn't the phone ALWAYS disconnect from Wifi when it goes on standby? it did for me when i was on 1.1.3. I think it's a malfunction if it DOESN'T break it. I still just use Navizon to locate me on the google map. I believe you need the newest baseband for that to work accurately

    My baseband is the latest 4.03! That's why I'm surprised Google Locate is so wacky! I even installed Locate Me app to "caliber" Google's native Locate feature..., but it's still waaaaay off..

    google locate me I *believe* does not work outside the official carrier countries. Zibri definatly made a post on his blog that it seemed to work sparatically in Italy(which is expected to get iron the near future anyway). From my own experience it also works sparatically in Canada.

    works fine in sweden after having run locateme app. Worked great before i unlocked it with ziphone when I was on 4.03 without having installed locateme. Could be that you don't have any "registered" cell towers around where you are. The features relies on databases of registered towers by other companies, if I understand it correctly. They might not have gotten around to Russia yet, although that seems slightly improbable.
