I have a iphone 3g and a nike fuelband.  The nike fuelband application cannot be installed on my 3g iphone because I cannot install ios5.  The nike fuelband box says application available for ios4 and above. The application for ios4 no longer exist.


iPhone 3G, iOS 4.2, nike fuelband app doesnt exist

    If it's not available in the app store, there's no way to get it. If you're unhappy, return the Nike fuelband and let Nike know why you did so.

    Returning the fuelband is not an option as it was a gift received in January.  After talking with Nike they take no resposibility for the incompatability and blame it on Apple. This forum is as far as I have gotten to talking with anyone from Apple or getting an explanation why. Why would anyone buy a product from Apple or its affiliates if it becomes obsoletete and unuseable because Apple will not support it?

    That's pure bunk. Nike pulled the app that worked with the version of iOS you have from the app store. Apple did not hold a gun to their head and force them to do so.

     

    Blame Nike, not Apple. They had nothing to do with the decision.

    The app makers make the apps, not Apple.

     

    The iphone 3g was released almost 5 years ago - very, very old for a mobile phone.  I doubt that other 5 year old phones support the latest features and software.

     

    Not sure whyyou think it is unusual that such an old device would continue to be supported by the newest Nike products.

    I will contact Nike and delve into the matter once more and ask for thier support.  In this case, whether my phone is 'old' or not, does not matter.  I think that it is unusual that 'any' device would not be supported if the box that it came in says that it will.
