there are many on the internet. A lot of conspiracy theories about how the 3G handsets got certified for europe

I see Apple have responded and will be fixed in a software update soon. Not had a problem with 3G tbh, often can get a signal and can't say I have noticed it swapping more than my previous 3G phones did (T-Mobile and 3)

Utorrent has been off since it started playing up a few days a go, I have the most recent Itunes as I only got in to Tuesday.

But looking at the diagnostics on my router its saying PPP Server Down

So I am guessing this could be Sky's fault again?

Sky has been terrible in this house, after a faultless year and a half in my old property

I have it on my mac, its called iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw and is 250Mb big. I assume it will be the same on a PC but not sure where iTunes puts the files for you to sync. You can also find it here Hope that helps...

Thanks for that mate. x

Still not having much luck, I phoned sky and they denied it being their end with the problem.

This is my first post on the iphone and even though it is a bit odd to get used to I love it!

If you are able to post on the internet then it isn't likely to be Sky

I haven't seen that. I have seen a couple of people report that is how they think it will be fixed...

Got my 3g iphone yesterday. I like it a lot.

Debating jailbreaking it - has anyone done this, is it worth it?

Dave 15-08-2008 10:53 AM

I'm *probably* going to jailbreak.

That's pretty much where I'm at too. It seems easy enough, and it was a piece of piss on my touch when I had one, but it's so new I really don't want to break it :)

Dave 15-08-2008 11:10 AM

I jailbroke my first generation - it was pretty easy

Hmmm says they have responded in this article but when you dig into the source its speculative and actually contains a denial from Apple. Bloody journalists, facts are becoming as bad as the BBS to come by ;)

Easynet have been running line tests on the Sky Network for months, in some cases it has recalibrated lines that were originally near ADSL Max back down to less than 256k down. Its all over the ADSL forums and in most instances the first level support techs don't know a thing about it but if you can get to the second level guys they just offer a quick reset and bingo you're OK again. Great customer service eh!

Dave 15-08-2008 12:03 PM

Um - 256K down would still download the firmware innit

GodstoneEagle 15-08-2008 01:34 PM

any news on the return of 'tether'?


And dave why would you want to jailbreak?

Dave 15-08-2008 01:36 PM

run applications in the background - feel the need to be able to scrobble even more!

Isn't your jailbroken already? In that case you can tether already

yeah but it would explain the 5 hour thingy...as for the crashes who knows what else goes on on the Klims PC whilst she is waiting for the download!

Her network connection has a history of reliability problems also.

klimskady 15-08-2008 02:00 PM

Ok then, I have now got the 2.0.1 install file that you linked to Ridcully, but when I click on it it loads itunes and then wants me to download the other one that doesn't work for me, does anyone know of a way of getting this to work?

This is turning into a bit of a farce.
