iPhone 2.0 Software Problem - and Solution!

So, it's not excactly bike related (unless, of course, you're on the phone while riding like many Dutch folks)...

iPhone 2.0 software has created quite a buzz this morning because the Apple servers can't keep up with the activations. This is a huge problem!


If you're stuck with a network access error:

-Go to your iTunes Store

-Click on a song to get to the song page

-Immediately click on the iPhone under Devices

It will start your sync (apparently Apple is giving priority to $0.99 song purchases over iPhones).

Thanks to those at the coldfusionjedi blog for the discussions!

So, I take it you got the software upgrade, and didn't stand in line all day for the new model?

Yeah, I have no need for the new model. It has GPS, but the current phone uses cell tower triangulation to approximate your location.

I've heard horror stories about how people waited in line at the Apple store for 8 hours, finally got the phone, went home to activate it, spent 6 hours waiting for the servers to clear up, etc.
