Dropped calls out the wazoo, hardly happened with prior versions. Mine also locks up while switching between contact favorites and contacts. Requires a reboot to correct.
On the plus side I like being able to locate myself with the new map feature.cmpaq, Windows XP Pro
As one of many who hasn't hacked the iphone, after upgrading to 1.1.3 this iphone is all I've ever wanted in a useless windows mobile phone! (Yes that was sarcasm) I mean, why would Apple come out with an update and not have all issue's worked out? I love the update's, but not if they won't work! Anyone figure out how to downgrade back to 1.1.2?

Crazy problems with Dropping calls since 1.1.3
The phone has been very solid until now. People are even saying its ringing in weird at times to. I have been in same home office environment for months now using the pone without issue until the upgrade to 1.1.3.
Just got off a 45 minute call with At&t in which they claimed that by loading 50% of the memory with music or pictures it would negatively effect the signal strength, yikes. They would not send that statement to me in writing however.
Still hope to resolve this dropped call issues quickly, as I really love my iPhone.MacPro Quad, Mac OS X (10.5.1), PowerBook, Mini, iPods and iPhone
I too have dropped calls and even less bars than before. At home it used to be full bars and after the "upgrade" I'm down to 2 or 3 (I'm in an excellent reception area as per ATT). Also, when I'm in Safari and am scrolling around, Safari crashes and returns to the home screen. It does not happen all the time but is very annoying. Sending a text message also seems to take longer than before.iphone
I too have the exact problem. In my home dropped and garbled conversation with full signal.
I NEVER had that issue before..;(
I talked with a Apple rep. and although ATT and I did a restore..arrgh and though quite customer service friendly they offered a sim replacement. But everyone with an iPhone already knows the sim card is secure..unless you like to play with sim cards..lol
Today ATT said that there was a tower with issues in my area..
Before the 1.1.3 update all was fine in my home which is considered "best signal service area".iMac 24, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
My wife and I both have 8 gb iPhones and both updated to 1.1.3 We have had no issues at all these phones since day one and are 100% even the SMS Is working perfect and all in order.iPhone, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
This is not much more information- but I too am experiencing much more frequent dropped calls.
I've tried the usual slew of fixes, short of a restore, but guess I'll have to go there next.mbp, 8core mp x2, mini x10, imac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Sure seems as though APPLE needs a fix to this issue of dumping calls...My iPhone was flawless, perfect, never had any issue of any kind....thought I'd found the perfect phone, UNTIL I UPGRADED TO 1.1.3////// Worst decision I could have ever made. I drop calls every single day where I can't ever remember dropping a call before this dang upgrqade. Talk about regret. I loved that phone, now I dread having any conversation related to busiess as I look like an idiot. FIX THE PROBLEM>>>>>>PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEDELL
Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2008 10:03 PM (in response to bigmikey)I have 2 iPhones that have worked flawlessly until the 1.1.3 update. Now they drop calls on a regular basis, usually 3-5 minute into a call. The signal bars suddenly drop from 5 to zero, the call fails, but then the signal comes right back to 5 bars. This happens in areas where I have never had any problems whatsoever.Mac OS X (10.5.1)
I've been having a few major problems with my Phone since the update. My iPod doesn't show any album art whatsoever although I've made sure all my albums have the album art in my library. My voicemail now asks for a password yet I never entered a password so I cannot access my voicemail. I'm also experiencing trouble with the phone vibrating with a message or call but the ring does not go off. I've made sure silent mode is off and the ring is set in setting many times. It's quite frustrating. My phone's battery also depletes much greater amounts just sitting in my pocket in sleep mode. I have tried restoring the phone several times and reinstalling the new iTunes update. I think its time to take it into an Apple Store and have them play around with it.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2008 12:32 AM (in response to Chris_S)Sorry to hear of your problems Chris. Just to check that you've tried the normal troubleshooting steps? Reset/Reboot/Restore iPhone, in that order. I expect you have?Dual 2.3 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 2 GB DDR SDRAM
I have had the same issue. Dropping a 90% of my phone calls now anything between 1 minute into the call and 25 minutes into the call. I have been talking with apple and at&t. I have dropped calls with the headset in, no headset, standing still, driving in a car. I live in a relatively large city and have not had one single dropped call until the 1.1.3 update. Here is what I did so far, these things were suppose to help.
1. Turn on airplane mode for more than 30 seconds (i did for up 3 hours) - DID NOT WORK
2. Complete charge of the phone - DID NOT WORK
3. Remove and re-insert the headet 5 times - DID NOT WORK
4. Soft reboot - held in the top right button until power off symbol appears then power off - DID NOT WORK
5. Removed the sim card and made sure there was no dirt on it.
6. Hard reboot - held in the top right button and the home button for 3 seconds until the apple symbol appeared - DID NOT WORK
7. I am currently doing a system restore and will post my result, hopefully that works.
The sad thing is I was just bragging that I have not dropped a single call with my iphone....iphone, Windows XP
