nope, i dont.
well the problem is, when i look @ the website they keep sending me to t-mobile, (the main provider in our country that has iphones) but i bought it in belgium, because there its simlock-free.
But i mailed to apple, if they can do something about it.
thnx for the reply!
If i get more info out of the mail ill put some of it here.
My iphone 3G abruptly got the white screen. My touch was working, my iphone itself was working. Apple/AT&T, since I was 17 days over in my warranty, wanted me to pay $399 to get a replacement phone. Apple *****. AT&T wanted $150 to let me get out of the contract ( about an year left ).
Got LCD replacement for < 30$ and replaced it myself.
This was my 2nd equipment. First one had issues with headset plugging( hole ). I think replacement phones are all refurbished.
I am so longing to finish the contract and get out of this iCrap.
Oh... That was not the deal I was offered. They didn't offer to replace my iPhone 3G with another 3G. They were trying to sell another 3GS I think.
One apple Tech had the audacity to jokingly ( while I was standing there with fumes out of my ears upon hearing that I had to shell out another 299/399 to get a replacement ) indicate that I was eligible to get the reduced price of 199 right about the time of Christmas for my Christmas gift.
Anyway ONLY reason I chose iPhone was because of its capabilities to support for reading emails/web pages in my mother tongue..
By the time the contract is done this I am hoping the iCrap doesnt drive me nuts. AT&T & apple are made for each other.. Both are equally bad..
Either way I look at it, I am regretting the decision to go with apple iPhone & AT&T...
Not exactly sure if the 3.01 update started my wi-fi woes, but I haven't been able to make a connection for 2 weeks. Very frustrating. Been following the posts on this thread and have done a few things. Including going to the Apple store (Genius) and having them restore it. Same issue after the restore. Two other things that seem to be happening that I haven't read on these boards.
First, it seems to be losing the correct time. At least once a day the time will be 10-20 minutes behind. Eventually it will correct itself, but can't help to wonder if this is related.
Secondly, the response of the touch seems to be slow. Including hitting the home key. Looks to be off by at least a half second. There are other pokey things now with the interface.
The solution from the Genius bar was to put me in a 3GS as my iphone is out of warranty. Though this particular phone is less than a year old. It's a replacement from my original fried iphone from last December.
This whole experience is very disheartening. I'm hoping the upgrade will fix the problem.
