some 'tard blames this on Microsoft.
I have a list of likely 'tards right here.....
The source of the battery-draining bug that sucked the life out of iPhones, and strained mobile phone and corporate networks, has been identified by Apple as a cock-up between its iOS calendar app and Microsoft Exchange servers. The flaw affects people synchronising their Microsoft Exchange calendars with their iOS 6.1 devices …
I happen to be an Exchange admin and can tell you there's tons of people who think it's all Micorosft's fault.
Android devices don't have any trouble connecting to my beautiful Exchange servers, winphone's are obviously pain free as well, but the amount of errors i get from Idevices is just plain silly.
No problems here because no-one liked using Lotus Notes so much they canned it (I blame MS for making a better email client).
I never had the privilege of using Lotus, but are you telling me that they made an email client worse than MS Outlook? Ugh! That's a horrible thought. Particularly as they started losing in the 90s, so are you saying their client was worse than Outlook 95? *shudders*
Remembers (with horror) the IT 'upgrade' in early 1999, where they took my PC with NT4 workstation away, and replaced it with one running Windows 95. I got upgraded to Win 98 the same year, so I've no idea why we went through 9 months of Win 95 purgatory first... Ugh! I hated 95 because of that, and fixing my Dad's PC every few months.
Beautiful exchange servers = proud of your work.
For the past three years i've had 99% uptime. 1% dowtime for patch management and nothing else. I manage a well built Exchange environment and i'm damn proud of what i'm doing. If you think that's sad, then i pity you for not understanding how to be proud of the work you do.
Apple connecting to exchange drains battery and Android connecting to exchange drains battery.
I sense there is some common factor here but can't put my finger on it.
I wonder if windows phones have the same problem? Then again it doesn't matter since nobody seems to have one.
He obviously assumed that by posting the exact same posts that he did before, but under an anonymous tag, that he wouldn't get downvoted to Heck and back.
I'd love to know what his upvote/downvote ratio is. He must be about as popular as a horny dog at a Miss Lovelylegs competition. (h/t Red Dwarf)
Since when do Android devices drain when connecting to Exchange? i don't see the horrible amount of connection errors from Adnriod devices as i see them from IOS devices. Granted, we don't have that many connected Android devices, but i am yet to encounter such problems on Android.
I've just had a quick peek on google and see there's definately some problems with it, maybe we've been lucky so far.
Sadly no. I don't think rebooting the phone works. You have to turn off the exchange server synching, and then turn it back on again.
I've just set up my new work iPhone 5, and the damned thing keeps beeping at me, about every 30 minutes. I can't work out what alert is sounding, since I've disabled alerting on everything but calls and text messages, and I won't get any of those until the number is ported across. The only thing I can think is that it's telling me to upgrade to iOS 6.1. Leading me to my doom...
The marketing phrase of "it just works" is going right down the drain isn't it? It is joining that "trustworthy computing" one that already went down there ages ago!
It makes me wonder if things like this happened more often before, but Steve Jobs would somehow keep it all secret in such a way that Tim Cook can't. I remember the colossal mistake I made upgrading my iPod Touch 2nd Generation from iOS 3.6.3 to 4.0 and then seeing my Wifi on it was never the same afterwards. (Maybe I was holding it wrong?) But it just showed me in that short six months where my device was still supported how much I do not want to ever own an Apple made product again.
There's something about the phone and/or iOS which is far more unreliable than previous versions. Lots of forum based evidence of something happening.
I watch my phone dropping in and out of 3G when it's sitting on a desk. Four bars, drops to 1 bar, then no 3G, then "Searching", then 1 bar, then back to 4 bars and 3G. I've just changed provider (3's all-you-can-eat data plan) so don't know if it's the new provider or if it's the phone.
There's another issue widely reported where the phone drops the signal and doesn't pick it up until the phone's rebooted.
"the phone drops the signal and doesn't pick it up until the phone's rebooted."
Interesting... mine has exactly the same problem.
My experience with iPhones has been downhill:
iPhone 3GS - perfect - best phone I've ever owned
iPhone 4 - minor issues
iPhone 5 - major issues
I almost bought a Sammy; wish I had now.
Still running my 3GS until it finally dies (or I drop it in the Thames) and don't have many issues, except with crappy apps. Some devs don't know how to handle errors.
I do hate when Apple does an iOS upgrade, they don't have a history of doing it well. I usually wait a few months for everyone else to experience the pain of a in-the-wild testing process on behalf of the dominant phone maker, so they can release a fix before I install it. That, and the fact that they have a habit of dropping some of their own apps during the upgrade, or splitting them in two.
Other than that, it works as a phone and fast mobile browser - basically all you need. I have a Win 7 mobile too from work - the browsing experience there isn't great - but the email experience is better. Connecting to Exchange, Hotmail and Gmail is faster to download and easier to read than on the iPhone.
