    Default Only soughted feature in 1.1.1

    The only soughted feature for people here in india, is the "Increased speaker volume". We dont really care about other features like Wifi iTunes store etc. So if some one can create a native app for increasing the speaker volume, we are quite happy to live with 1.0.2 for a while?

    What about the other people? Do you agree or disagree?

    Well, for me the iTunes US Store is actually very important since this is the only source to get the latest US TV shows in Germany in English without translation.
    It usually takes a year or more to get the same season in Germany, some TV shows aren't even available. The iPhone is a nice piece of technology, especially the touch screen but the best thing about it is actually...being able to use iTunes DRM protected media files on the go. I know, I know...you can easily (and in most countries illegally) decrypt/encode DVD movies/TV shows for the same viewing pleasure with the iPhone but this still doesn't give me the latest stuff.

    As a "serious" business user, the iPhohe isn't the right tool for me, this is why my primary phone is a Nokia E90, I also use a HTC TyTN for experimental WM6 homecooked stuff.

    With UMTS/HSDPA, with A2DP bluetooth profile, with a more rugged design on the edges of the too slippery casing, with a slightly better battery life, with a 16 GB flash memory and with third party applications, the iPhone can become the best phone in the world. iPhone MkII (or "Pro") will definetely be a much better tool for business AND entertainment purposes, hopefully it will be available mid 2008 like some rumours indicate.

    The iPhone and especially the innovative touch screen and the OSX derived OS have a lot of potential, I just hope that Apple is clever enough to recognize this potential. Other phone manufacturers aren't sleeping and I already heard of a lot of surprises coming from Nokia and Samsung and even HTC over the next 12 months.
    Look at the Nokia N95 8GB for example, a much better "phone" than the iPhone with the same capacity, not to mention the TONS of third party applications available, free or commercial.

    For now, I think that the iTunes shop access is actually THE thing which assures the success of the iPhone because in the end, the iPhone is technically outdated with the limited EDGE technology, the lack of A2DP and a miserable battery life for a non-3G phone. I won't even mention the lack of a video recording function or the crappy 2 MP camera.

    Yes, the louder ringer is a very good thing, definetely. However I could imagine I would like a couple of other things available with FW 1.1.1.

    Don't get me wrong: I know that I could easily get TV shows and everything else through torrents, etc. I'm a busy person, I have a family I have to take care of too, so I don't have much time on my hand. Buying iTunes stuff isn't really a problem for me, so I enjoy the content available instead of dealing with (illegal) torrents, etc.
    To each his own I guess.

    I can't confirm or deny the "soon" but otherwise, I fully agree. Patience is a virtue.

    And that's a hint ?

    Kudos to dev team for standing up against Apple

    I think more press are beginning to see our side of the story now. FW 1.1.1 and FW 1.1UK have features that we all need. Apple could have prevented this update from bricking but chose not to. Or maybe chose to deliberately brick. And what's to say that Apple won't introduce new features into 1.2(uk) like A2DP and enhanced SMS support ? What do we do then ?

    So it's better to let dev team attack every FW release to make Apple understand that they cannot control everything

    Kinda like Apple's replaced the bad IBM guy in their own 1984 commercials

    from what I undestood you can only buy songs over wifi with the 1.1.1 update and you get a msg if you try to download tv/movies/podcasts and such that you cannot download them. I could be wrong but I think its because they don't want the download to cut out in the middle, or you to miss the end if the download goes slow.

    well i red this in gizmodo


    Meanwhile, iPhone Dev Team is working full speed ahead on two things:

    Downgrading the baseband so they can unlock again the iPhones restored to version 1.0.2 from 1.1.1.

    Creating another free unlock that will work for version 1.1.1 of the software. According to them, both may be very near--now testing-- and they have put it forward to people with bricked phones to "be patient and hold on until we come with a full solution for 1.1.1 firmware."

    Correct. Only music is presently available in the WiFi iTunes Store. The current feature does not even include podcasts, which I find quite disappointing (if there's anything that I really want access to on-the-go, it's podcasts of news updates and so forth).

    Further, the same purchase restrictions apply as they do using the iTunes software on your desktop, so this is not somehow a magic pass to getting access to the U.S.-only iTunes Store content, unless you already have a U.S.-based iTunes Store account (in which case you don't really need the iTunes WiFi Store).
