    I've seen several reports that OS3.1 beta has been released to developers
  • ericnepean Level 1 (60 points)
    Theres nothing in feature list or notes that says the release actually addresses any WiFi problems or any iTouch problems. However, a new load that only takes 2 weeks to code and test will be rushed and likely introduce some new problems.

    I'd be very cautious about installing this load, unless my Touch was "bricked"; Better by far to go back to 2.2.1, or stay there, if you can.

    As soon as I updated to 3.0, my touch2 was way slower to power on/off, load apps, load music basically all navigation is slow. WiFi now has reduced range and is weak and unstable. Some app's won't even load or only load some content. I called Apple tech support yesterday and they are STILL saying they haven't heard of these issues with 3.0. I told to tech to google "slow ipod after 3.0 update" to see many different forums of people complaining about it. The tech said that you can't believe everything that's on the web. The tech had me restore my touch2 which did nothing but erased all my contacts. The tech said that the issue could be with the touch itself. I loved the touch2 prior to this update and now HATE it. I can't believe Apple isn't taking ownership of this problem. I've never owned an Apple product before and needless to say won't be buying an iPhone now as I had planned and I won't buy one of their computers when the time comes. I'M A PC and staying that way for sure! BTW Apple, my friends and family now ask where my touch2 is and I tell them about how it doesnt work right anymore after paying $10 for the 3.0 update and how Apple is ignoring the issue.

    luvlabs, you have nearly 2,000 posts. Instead of just posting the first thing that comes to mind, try to add some value to this forum. You're doing a great job of representing trolls, not much else though.

    I switched to the iTouch from Palm TX - the iTouch has been a real disappointment to me regarding application integration, battery life and SW stability.

    Its been a real eye-opener to see how poorly Apple supports a new SW release; its really going to affect my decision to upgrade the iMAC to OSX 10.6.

    Its also really going to affect what I tell other people about Apple products.

    Apple isn't REALLY ignoring the issues. They WILL have updates to resolve the most egregious issues with the OS. They just don't TALK about it, so it appears as though they are ignoring our problems. At some point, an update will drop, that will address some issues. At a later date, another update will clear up residual issues. That's how they do it. They act, without telegraphing what they are working on. Hang in there.

    "its your ipod and maybe you want to fix it"

    We've paid for something and it doesn't work properly. Apple products are supposed to be simple to use and well thought out. If I wanted this hassle I would be using a PC and something that isn't an ipod.
    By the way, I've tried different methods of getting my ipod touch back to version 2 standards, but I still get an error message. The whole point of having an Apple product and paying a premium for this is that its supposed to work.

    I have tried EVERYTHING suggested and NOTHING has helped. Most of us aren't sitting here whining and complaining then doing nothing, you know. I hate that I have spent almost $300 on an ipod for myself (3 months ago) and another for my husband and mine was working on our home wifi till I upgraded. His is still working on our home wifi because we did not upgrade his brand new iPod. I already have a very good MP3 player and didn't need another. I bought this for the wifi. I can only access wifi from other sources and not our home source. Shockingly, we can still run our laptops wirelessly with our router and also his iPod so why not mine?
  • jj3030 Level 1 (0 points)
    I am so sick and tired...of calling apple and getting no solutions. I regret uploading the 3.0 update. My wifi internet connection has not worked since then. Apple gives me no answers and blames it on my server. I have 3 computers at home and all of them have no problems when trying to go online. Does anybody know how to solve this? I can't believe apple doesn't warn about these problems before downloading the software.

    I have answered a lot of questions and helped a lot of users. I have yet to run up against a WiFi problem that can't be corrected. The fact that I and a lot of the other more experienced people on this discussion board do not have WiFi problems tells you something, or at least it should. We don't get anything special for volunteering our time to help people.

    I posted what I did to try to get some of you off your collective, complaining butts and try some simple fixes that I know will work. Since the 3.0 update, I have only posted one bug report and it wasn't for WiFi. Have you at least posted a bug report?

    Enough bug reports from everyone will get things for you fixed.

    Your apology will be accepted.

    I tried all of these:
    restore my ipod
    reset all network settings
    reset all contents and settings
    disconnect and reconnect my router
    I still don't have success. is there anything else that u can suggest me to do?
  • luvlabs Level 4 (3,610 points)

    Even Apple products break. Nothing in this world is perfect. If you want some fun, you need to read posts in the OS X 10.5 discussion group after a minor upgrade to the OS. The upgrade to Snow Leopard should be a real hoot.

    My iPod, for the most part, works great, is simple to use, but it occasionally goes bonkers. A simple restart, reset, or restore brings it back. The way you sound, it is too much of a bother to even do a simple reset.

    WiFi is not a simple issue to resolve. But even 3.0 will work - and all it takes is a little bit of user participation.
