iPhone 4 iOS 4.0.2 Problems: Update Needs Apple Attention
Now this is personal as we are having some serious problems with the iPhone 4 iOS 4.0.2 update, we are using the Apple iPhone 4 and updated to the new operating system via iTunes like you do and since we have done this have experienced nothing but issues.
We will tell you the problems we are having and then you can let us know if you are experiencing the same problems and any other issues you are having.
Right where do we begin! Lets start with what we have mentioned before about the Bose Docking Station issue, when we had the older operating system on the iPhone 4 everything worked fine with no problems at all and then since iOS 4.0.2 installed on the iPhone 4 we have started to pull hairs from our head.
Since the update we cannot play any songs from the iPod on the Bose Docking station, all we get is ‘Device not compatible’ you know the message we could do without, so number 1 is no music on a docking system.
Number 2 problem is connecting via Bluetooth in a BMW 530d MotorSport, yet again with the old operating system we could pair the iPhone 4 with the BMW communication interface where we got to see all the contacts on our smartphone on the BMW dashboard, downloaded the new iOS 4.0.2 update and now we cannot even pair Bluetooth not alone see anything on the screen.
Number 3 problem is drop calls, now this one is my all time devil that needs an angel to sort because if not the iPhone will become a throwing stone down the beach playing silly skimming games. The phone rings and we answer it, everything is fine and then ‘BANG’ talking to my blooming self, we call the person back and they say “why did you cut me off”, having to explain sorry the call just dropped, which is a waste of breathe.
Number 4 problem is text messages, sometimes and we would say about 3 times out of 5 we send a text message to someone and it said ‘Message Sent Failed’ or something along those lines, ten minutes we try again and it is fine.
Number 5 problem is the bumper case, now we pay a whopping Â£600 for the Apple iPhone 4 smartphone and we get to see a beautiful design, you know the metal rim around the phone etc, but yet we have to cover the expensive device with a free Bumper case; sorry Apple this is one we would call pathetic. Maybe some users love to don a case for the iPhone 4 but we don’t.
Number 6 problem is the battery life, we have used many mobile phones over the years and we would have to say the iPhone is one of the worst devices for battery life, is this down to the whole iPhone 4 itself or is it down to the new iOS 4.0.2? Personally we say the OS because it was nowhere near as bad as it is now.
Apple please accept these problems on the chin and sort something out, we are not slagging you off but merely wishing you can give us products we deserve for the price. We use most of your products like the iPhone (Had everyone of them since 2007), the Apple TV, Mac Mini, Macbook Air, Apple iPad; we are very good customers of yours and wish a little back from you.
We have always been happy customers and wish to continue being happy customers, but since the iOS 4.0.2 update we have slowly gone off the idea of purchasing future Apple smartphones, do not get us wrong the iPhone is one of the best to date and we really mean that, but since the iPhone 4 and its latest update if not corrected we might have to give it the burial it deserves.
