Hello all.I finally got my iPhone and Im currently in the phase of being paranoid about every single action takes place inside the phone. But this one may actually be a problem.When I open Safari when Im not connected to 3G or WiFi, an untitled page opens up. When I rotate the phone, the page is displayed horizontally, no problem. When I rotate it back to display it vertically, just for a fraction of a second, I see black and white patterns (like a checkerboard) at the lower portion of the screen. But after that instantenous moment, everything is normal.Is this a known issue? Or Im starting with the RMA stuff iPhone 4 iOS 4
Ive read some posts about Safari crashing and wondered if Im experiencing the same problem. Sometimes Safari will display a checkerboard pattern on the screen and there seems to be no way to get rid of it unless I power reset the phone. Is this the crashing problems folks are referring to? Im running 2.0.1 on the iPhone 3G.As always, I sent feedback to Apple. iPhone 3G + Dell Windows XP Pro
I have to admit, I had high expectations for the iPhone 3G. I waited until the second generation, I waited for Exchange integration. I am a heavy email user, but like the add-ons the iPhone platform offers.Ive had the phone for about a week of heavy use and Im not feeling the love.1. Keyboard -- I cant touch type or get up to any kind of speed. I still make a lot of typos and have to back up. People say you have to trust the auto correct but that just doesnt help me that much.2. Have to be On Network to do any email!!?? This i dont get. A mobile platform in todays environment is going to be on and off network. Unless I am missing something major, once I am off network i cannot read my emails? EDIT: I went back and went into Airplane mode and my email content is there, but there have been times when it is not. I cannot delete messages when off network. I think the earlier scenario I got email headers, but not all the messages and I was seeing a checked screen of tan and white checkerboard.3. Battery. My battery life has been bad. Not even through one day. So I have read these forums and I have Disabled Location services (each time i use it), I have disabled 3G, I have disabled Push, and I have disabled Wi-Fi to get through a ten hour day. So what am I left with? A device with all of the attractive features turned off, limited web browsing. Maybe if I could set up icons (shortcuts?) to quickly toggle these off without digging into Settings it could work, but that is not the case. I did a full drain down and recharge last night and the phone is still counting usage minutes and says the phone has been plugged in since it was charged -- well, no, I just charged it but I guess it did not reach full charge to reset the counter?4. Freeze / Lagging. I think related to the email, about 5-7 times a day the screen freezes. I could be looking up a number or a contact and it just is frozen. After about 45 seconds to 2 minutes it comes back to life and executes the clicks or types that I made. Of course it happens at the most inopportune time.I really wanted to have a good iPhone experience. I am really frustrated with it. I am not necessarily looking for a point by point reply to my issues, but higher level advice -- should I stick with it? Is it likely these things will be fixed by Firmware upgrades, or is this just the state of the product until the next generation?Sorry for venting.Message was edited by: GadgetBoyGenius
