iPhone SMS error bug won't go away


You're a bit late...

This is apparently fixed in the latest update 2.2.1

Who reads The Register?

Thumb Up

In the nicest possible way

I agree with Wiser Mouse; with any story I read that remotely relates to technology, or indeed Paris Hilton, I look to the Register for an entertaining and often much better informed view. However, the Register is also a very welcome voice of reason when we're bombarded with appalling sensationalist journalism from everywhere else, regarding technology, terrorism etc.

Keep it up please! :)

Rumour of redesigned iPhone



That ever reliable source of nonsense, The Daily Mail. I will try to withhold my excitement until a real news source mentions it.

3 days on: The iPhone users still to make a call


Am I the only one...

Though obviously I am appalled by the infrastructure breakdown on launch day and in the subsequent days, I was very impressed by O2's local customer service. I bought my iPhone 3G on Friday morning at the flagship store on Oxford Street and received a phone call at 10am on Saturday (he said they were all at work till 1am that night and in at 6am on Saturday morning processing applications) saying my sim card had been activated; which on testing, was indeed working. I then received a text message telling me my number would be ported by the 16 July.
