article imageiPhone runs into major software trouble

By Vinay Chand     Jul 11, 2008 in Technology
Soon after the launch of the new iPhone 3G, the Apple iPhone seems to have run into trouble owing to certain software problems.
It seemed the iPhone 3G was a perfect phone with incredibly useful features for day to day life. However, soon after it was launched, it ran into major trouble across its stores with software on the phones.
The new phones, unlike the older versions, are being activated at the stores itself, as it's widely subsidised by carriers on a contract basis. In fact many of those buyers who arrived at the stores first, were taken aback by such problems in service while they were made to wait for over twenty minutes just to get their phones activated.
Even the old iPhone subscribers need to now, install a software upgrade for their phones, which is available for download, online.
Problems over the first few weeks of a new phone's launch isn't exactly common but isn't unheard of either. Its probably only a matter of time before Apple manufacturers figure out a solution.
Meanwhile, most countries across the world, including the US, Japan and a few European nations have reported record sales of the phone within just a week of its launch, rendering supply short, and stock even sold out in some cases. Well, its obvious Apple's not complaining.
