    I just got a text from AT&T/Apple telling me about the new firmware upgrade, lol.
    I thought it was funny, but at least we know that they're both working on the 3G reception issue as I imagine thats the only reason why AT&T would text me about a firmware upgrade.

    Did only the "2% of affected customers" get the text? I never got one.

    I'm pretty sure it's a response to news articles that ATT&T and Apple didn't make their customers aware of the new firmware...u only knew about it if you went to sites like macrumors (best site in the world)

    no trouble, and no text.....


    of course, I told ATT long ago to never text me with their crap, so they don't.

    You people make me laugh, "my firmware is fine I am not touching it!!", lmao like a new update will screw up your phone. Jesus Christ people stop being so damn paranoid.

    I have not received the text message. I wonder what determines if you get it or not?

    I already have updated the night it became available.

    I updated to 2.0.2 a couple of days ago, read about the text this morning, and got the text this afternoon. I didn't need it, of course, so I just deleted it.

    I live in Chicago on the north side and my reception sucks!

    I live in a "3G area" according to their maps but their is no way.

    also, I think it's funny how there is one spot not far from where I live that doesn't have 3G. How could a perfectly shaped square not get 3G....AT&T Sucks up here.
