The question I can't seem to find an answer to,sohbet
is why Apply removes such wanted and need feature from the iPhone? Later versions suppose to add to existing features - especially commonly used ones.sohbet odalari Thank You.

I can also confirm that MMS does work on iPhone EDGE model (first
sohbet
generation) and not just the iPhone 3G. The issue of Apple not providing MMS has nothing to do with the hardware in the first
chat generation iPhone. If
sohbet odaları third party app developers such as SwirlyMMS can provide MMS on first generation iPhones
muhabbet then why can't Apple? Apple's PR department needs to stop snowballing the media and in general consumers by spreading misinformation in an
sohbet
attempt to get existing customers to buy the
sohbet
iPhone 3G. MacLife should of done more research on this issue before posting this article

iPhone OS 3.0 Beta 5 just got released and it looks like MMS is not available. I also read that trying to hack it wouldn't work either.

The whole technical argument is somewhat pointless as MMS already works on first gen iPhones.

Jailbreak your iPhone and then buy SwirlyMMS for US$8 (http://www.swirlyspace.com/) thru Cydia.

I have been using it for over a year and it works perfectly. They have just released version 2 that has functionality far greater than the upcoming MMS in iPhone firmware version 3.

I have a car that has a motor that is perfectly capable of being tweaked to go a hundred kilometres an hour, but the manufacturer refuses to make it so. They're jerks right?

I mean the car is *capable* of it, so the fact that they won't fix it so it will go that fast means that they are ripping me off right? And somehow it's a giant conspiracy even though when I bought the car it clearly stated that it could only do 85 kph.

I think when the new firmware comes out it will VERY quickly be revealed that SMS not only works perfectly on the iPhone 2G, but there was absolutely no reason it couldn't. In fact, the firmware may even have code specifically BLOCKING IT from working on iPhone 2G, which people will quickly subvert.

The iPhone was sold as a device where updates would bring new features over time. So the take it's users are asking to much is ridiculous. It was sold to them under that very pretense. It's pretty clear why this decision was made when the software arrives there will be a new iPhone and new software features at a time when many users AT&T contracts will expire that will prod more users into upgrading than otherwise would. Be prepared to see a bit of backlash on this, not because the users are big babies who think they deserve something for nothing but because they were sold a device under the pretense it would gain features over time and the expectation they would bring the software up to support the features offered in the underlying hardware is a valid one.

I'm not sure about how it's panning out with their relations to the media, but Apples decision to omit mms from the 1st gen iPhone is a wise move on the marketing end. While I may or may not like it if i were a first gen iPhone owner, it is their right to do that.

I'm beginning to worry that end users are asking too much, as if the company they give their money and loyalty to owe them something back. We buy devices expecting to get the advertised features and capabilities, not more than that. If we buy it hoping for a future freebie, we're foolish.

I come to MacLife not only because I have a Mac, but because the people are not Grammar Nazis like the people over at MaximumPC...we all can generally get the gist of the articles without pointing out every painful, eyesore typo. Ok?

That said, this seems odd that Apple seems to be making a hardware issue out of a software issue. Why leave out the old iPhone users when it seems that the hardware is more than capable of supporting this software feature? I mean when you spend that kind of money on a device, you would think the manufacturer would support it for a long time. Seems to me that they want people to get the upcoming iPhone or at least the current iPhone. If that's the case, they should have some kind of a swap program and perhaps a small fee to upgrade...then Apple could refurbish the old units and resell them or recycle them to make new ones.

It's just like with the 2G iPod Touch having Bluetooth, but not being able to use it to its fullest extent (besides the Nike + iPod stuff) until 3.0 comes out. It makes no sense to lock out something as useful as Bluetooth on the 2G iPod Touch especially when they put the hardware into it. I love Apple and all, but they do make some odd decisions. I can't wait to see if my Bluetooth earpiece will pair with my 2G iPod Touch so I can use VoIP without a set of earbuds with a mic. Now if only there was more widespread free Wi-Fi around my city I might actually be able to get away from AT&T and my (uselessly hard to use compared to my iPod Touch) RAZR. Also I'm hoping the rumor that the Bluetooth hardware has a radio receiver is true so I can finally get local radio on my iPod. My girlfriend's ancient (read: original) Zune has a radio receiver...why can't an iPod?

The ipod touch 2 wasn't advertised as having bluetooth, so anyone who bought it, then found out that they were getting full bluetooth in OS 3 is getting a bonus. Obviously the bluetooth stack wasn't ready yet, which required enough of an effort that it made more sense to put it in OS 3. Not to mention the iPod having full bluetooth while the iPhone didn't would have made them look bad. But complaining about the ipod touch not having something that wasn't advertised is just stupid.Upgrading from the original iPhone to the 3G was "discounted". 1st Gen buyers paid full price for their iPhones, upgrades were eligible for subsidized prices. And before you say "but I paid twice!!", selling the 1st gen on eBay netted almost anyone who did so what they paid or more. So I don't see the argument there either.But Apple has a huge track record of "XYZ product is amazing! Except for A, B & C weirdness that makes absolutely no sense". For example, the iMac brightness can't be adjusted 1/3 as much as the laptops, and there is no "backlight off" setting. Why? I bought a MacBook Air and a Unibody MacBook last week. The MBA power connector is wonderfully slim, why aren't they using it on all the power adapters? It works just as well. You can I only sync "all or nothing" for contacts when using MobileMe on the iPhone. Why?I could write a book on the little things that make no sense that Apple has done to otherwise brilliant products.

I have no idea why the line breaks aren't working, there really are three paragraphs up there.

umm i am fairly sure you intended to use the work "one" instead of "once" when you said "Once feature the OS spelunkers...".

Just a thought...btw i LOVE THIS MAGAZINE!!!!
