OK this is ridiculous. There is no good reason why I shouldn't get the wifi syncing I've been demanding from day one. I even emailed Steve about it years ago. So draconian Apple wants me to out and buy a new iPhone to get their crappy new software? Screw them. I'll go buy an Android Galaxy S2 instead.


Lol all my friends who got Android phones never get regular updates to begin with. Not sure how the Galaxy will fare out but I've known people with Samsung, Sony and LG(I think) Android phones who are still at least one major version of Android behind because there is no new firmware for their phone.

Draconian Apple, really? And did you really think emailing the CEO of a company would get you a feature. If you really want it, jailbreak and be happy with what you've had for 3 years.

There's plenty of good reason. You're outdated. That's it. Now go over and enjoy Android. You're not going to be missed.

Apparently not ...

It's pretty simple, your processor isn't fast enough to handle the new OS and all the features well. Just sell it on eBay and buy a new one. I've done that every year with no problem and sometimes even made money doing it.

And, as mentioned above, hardly any consumer electronic devices are upgraded constantly for years.

"Sorry I have a 3GS not a 3G accidentally left off the all important S. So I will be getting the updates. I'm back to thinking iOS 5 is magical again."

Wow.

any mirrors for the downloads yet?


Don't you mean illegal torrents? This is copyrighted software. Distributing through any channels other than the Apple Dev Servers is against the law.


NetFlix is still quite broken. Good luck ;)


Netflix isn't broken. Apple made changes to streaming implementations in iOS 5 and several apps (Netflix, Dropbox) have to make changes, too.

An OS update isn't going "fix" these apps. An update from the developer after Apple begins accepting iOS 5 binaries will.

Is anyone surprised they don't support a 3 year old phone? Heck, most phones aren't supported after a year by other manufacturers.


I completely agree! I have a Pioneer GPS/DVD/NAV radio in my car that is 2 years old which has NEVER seen and will NEVER see a software update from Pioneer. Most electronic makers consider the software that ships with the device the final it will ever see, unless there is a major problem that needs fixing, then and only then will they push out an update. Before the iPhone and now Android and others, when did you ever get a new software update for your Nokia? Motorola RAZR? Nope. If you wanted new features, you bought a new phone.
