    Well.  We have to speak up somewhere.  U think if I go to Samsung and tell them I'm upset with apple, do u think that would help apple out in knowin what thy need to do to keep their customers happy?

    Neither I nor any other user have the power to remove anything. Only the Hosts can do that. I would be much less tolerant than they are.

     

    And thank you for your advice but, I'm quite happy with how I chose to spend my time.

    Yes, as well you should. However, if you want Apple to actually pay attention, there are more effective places to do it. Finding them is left as an exercise to the reader.

    You're welcome. By the way, you might want to get your keyboard checked out. Your typing seems to be missing quite a few letters. Perhaps that was also caused by the update?

    Funny u say that.  Cause I type and the words don't pop up til I'm on to the next one cause my phone has slowed down. An I hav a thing called man hands.  These little letters make it harder to type.  But thx for noticing. I like to change the subject to when I'm in over my head and can't think of anything better to say ;) I'm getting all sorts of help here.  Thank you.

    I'm very sorry you feel that you're in over your head. I would suggest you go back and review the thread. Perhaps a closer reading will help.

     

    Best of luck.

    Sad that some people have nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon than to put total strangers down. I'm going to find some possible workarounds to this issue somewhere else (there are some) and post it on my Facebook page in case anyone wants to actually get some assistance. Look for them sometime this coming week.

     

    Bye  @ Meg -- and hope you get a life sometime.

    I got that email from the email notification service I subscribed to for this thread. I have written a letter to the big man and here is what I wrote:

     

    Dear Tim Cook,

     

    I am a customer who has been loyal to Apple for the past 5 years during which I have bought tens of Apple devices for myself, friends, and relatives. We live in a country where we don't get Apple releases on their launch day but I have ways to get them from US or UK in the interim.

     

    We were promised the world if we upgrade our devices to iOS 6 and specially to get the most beautiful and powerful mapping service ever. I upgraded and since I live in Dubai Apple Maps didn't give me anything more than a pocket size digitized map that is far inferior than the local paper map. Apple map in Dubai hasn't even limited functionality that Apple Maps has in the US. I tried to use many alternatives but none of them brought back the functionality I used to have before this upgrade.

     

    I tried to find solutions and went to the official Apple Support Community forums on the web to find individuals carrying levels and points who were trying to silence every criticism, complaint, or negative experience in the most unprofessional style addressing expressions to Apple customers in the form of  "you are moaning", "stop whining", "go to other suppliers", "who forced you to upgrade", "we don't want you here..go away" "you were sent by Google to troll",..etc. The impression left on everyone who came to those threads for help or discussion that these individuals are an organized gang of badly trained watchdogs whose only task is to make fun and be sarcastic of genuine Apple customers who dare to mention that as we are Apple customers who pay our money to Apple, we deserve a better treatment and we want the functionality we have paid for. They keep directing us to a feedback page on Apple site for iPhone that doesn't even enlist the iOS versions while it does mention all those for Windows and Mac OS!!

     

    Millions of existing Apple customers including me own devices (other than iPhone 5) have upgraded to iOS 6 but we didn't like it as our devices became less functional. All that we want is to have the choice to get back iOS 5 until the time when iOS 6 gives what it promised. iTunes doesn't allow us to make this "downgrade" for reasons that none of us is able to understand. Why our devices have become captives to iOS 6? iOS 5 is still supported and millions of those customers who were more prudent than us and didn't upgrade to iOS 6 are still happy with their devices running iOS 5. Why can't we?

     

    Finally, I would like to ask you if you still think that a company which makes "downgrading" an impossible wish for its most loyal customers could continue to be worth working for, investing in, or buying from?

    That sounds a bit odd. Wouldn't it flow better if you started 'Dear Tim' or 'Dear Mr Cook'?
