    Default On our 5th iPhone.... is it a P.O.S. or do we get lemons?

    Ok so we started off using T-Mobile with StealthSIM, worked fine for a month then all kinds of problems.....so we went AT&T route thinking it was just because we were hacking that we had problems....

    So my iPhone started having all kinds of bluetooth problems and dropped calls the DAY I switched to AT&T, wife's was having dropped calls and no audio during calls problems.

    Replaced wife's iPhone, and the volume up button doesn't work, so replaced that one - she is on her 3rd iPhone.

    I had mine replaced for bluetooth and dropped calls and (knock on wood) haven't had any issues yet (at least not in the 4 hours I've had it from the Apple store).

    Just a problem phone or what? I'm sorta disappointed with the issues we've had.

    On the lighter side, my recent replacement is week 33 with 1.1.2 firmware on it... maybe it could be hackable? Not that it matters cuz I have AT&T.

    iPhones are notorious for horrible signal. That could be the source of your dropped calls. When the signal gets bad that happens. Try to leave the black section on the bottom open when talking. The antenna is under there. I've had the no audio problem in my room because of the signal but since i got the "wireless extender" off ebay for really cheap and made an antenna out of a coat hanger i've been getting 3-4 bars in every part of my house. And haven't had a single dropped call yet.

    Wireless extenders work on cellular frequencies? Usually the dropped calls happen for no reason, I'll be driving down a major freeway in Minneapolis with full signal and the calls will drop....

    Hmm, I have never had any of those problems. Never even had a dropped call.
    Think you're just having some bad luck. :p

    Question:

    Do you feel locked up?
    AKON LYRICS

    Locked Up


    [AKON]
    Im steady tryna find a motive,
    Why do what i do?,
    Freedom aint gettin no closer,
    No matter how far i go,
    My car is stolen, no registration,
    Cops patrolin, and now they done stop me,
    And i get locked up,

    [Chorus]
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out, (im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they wont let me out, (im locked up)
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out, (im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they won't let me out

    [Akon]
    Headin up town to re-up,
    Back with a couple keys,
    Corner blocks on fire,
    Under covers dressed as fiends,
    Makin so much money,
    Products movin' fast,
    Put away the stash,
    And as i sold the last bag fucked around and got locked up

    [CHORUS]
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out, (my nigga im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they wont let me out, (i got locked up)
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out, (baby girl im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they won't let me out

    Cuz visitation no longer comes by,
    Seems like they forgot about me,
    Commissary is getting empty,
    My cell mates getting food without me,
    Can't wait to get out and move forward with my life,
    Got a family that loves me and wants me to do right
    But instead Im here locked up

    [CHORUS]
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out,
    (ohhh im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they wont let me out,
    (my nigga im locked up)
    They won't let me out, they won't let me out, (im locked up)
    They won't let me out no, they won't let me out

    Maybe a visit (they won't let me out)
    Send me some magazines (they won't let me out)
    Send me some money orders (they won't let me out, no)
    Maybe a visit baby (they won't let me out)
    Cuz im locked up, they won't let me out.
    Wheres my lawyer? (they won't let me out)
    Im locked up, they won't let me out, no.
    Get me outta here (they won't let me out)
    Im locked up, they won't let me out, they won't let me out.
    Baby Im locked up they won't let me out, no
    Where's my niggaz?
    On the lock-down.
    Damn, im locked up, they won't let me out.
    Im locked up, they won't let me out.
    Ohhh... they won't let me out.
    Can you please accept my phone calls?
    Cuz Im locked up, locked up, locked up.

    It's a damn shame that people don't believe what I have to say..... if I'd thought to go throught ALL THE EFFORT just to prove it, downgrade, jailbreak, oktoprep, upgrade, screenshots..... you all still wouldn't believe me, just like every other post where someone claims something and everyone thwarts it and calls that person a liar.

    OK

    If its a 1.1.2, you cant unlock it unless you open it up and hardware do it.

    Second, did you run that program i told you to, to see the bootloader version? Yes? No you didnt, i know you didnt.
    Also:
    If your iPhone is activated and jailbroken, just go to installer, add this source: http://www.trejan.com/irepo

    then install BBInfo under Utility category.
    Third,
    ATT is ontop of the list of the most wireless dropped calls. Ever noticed how they had to remove the guy in the commercials when he said ATT, lowest dropped calls ( or something like that?). Now its just a dump add with a bunch of bars everywhere.
    Yea, legal issues. They were lying.

    Fourth, the iPhone has one of the worst signal receivers out there on the market. Everyone knows that the iPhone will give you trouble trying to get good services. Dont expect much. And unless you're using the Apple Bluetooth Wireless Headset, you will run into issues.

    Happy now? See I didnt sing a song for you.

    I lied
    Dont worry, your not alone out there with your *imaginary* problems bud
    MICHAEL JACKSON LYRICS

    "You Are Not Alone"

    Another day has gone
    I'm still all alone
    How could this be
    You're not here with me
    You never said goodbye
    Someone tell me why
    Did you have to go
    And leave my world so cold

    Everyday I sit and ask myself
    How did love slip away
    Something whispers in my ear and says
    That you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you're far away
    I am here to stay

    But you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we're far apart
    You're always in my heart
    But you are not alone

    'Lone, 'lone
    Why, 'lone

    Just the other night
    I thought I heard you cry
    Asking me to come
    And hold you in my arms
    I can hear your prayers
    Your burdens I will bear
    But first I need your hand
    Then forever can begin

    Everyday I sit and ask myself
    How did love slip away
    Something whispers in my ear and says
    That you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you're far away
    I am here to stay

    For you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we're far apart
    You're always in my heart
    For you are not alone

    Whisper three words and I'll come runnin'
    And girl you know that I'll be there
    I'll be there

    You are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you're far away
    I am here to stay
    For you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we're far apart
    You're always in my heart

    For you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though you're far away
    I am here to stay

    For you are not alone
    For I am here with you
    Though we're far apart
    You're always in my heart

    For you are not alone...

    So, like my last post, you think that a week 33 iPhone that Apple refurbed and left 1.1.2 on has an updated bootloader? I thought the bootloader couldn't be touched? Seriously why do you challenge everything I say?

    And no, I didn't run the program, because my wife's phone had a volume up button that didn't work, so we exchanged it and got a week 44 or 45 one back with 1.1.3 already on it.

    The big question is, did Apple update the bootloader on either of the phones I've gotten??
