    Gosh, I am getting so bored of the "iPhone version 1.0.2 is the current version" message, as I posted yesterday.

    So, I have decided to start a thread that all people can come to whilst they wait for the iPhone update.

    Best to stop thinking about it and just use you iPhone and the updates will come.

    I've pretty much given up on checking for updates in iTunes. Im just waiting until it shows up in my RSS reader. But I am growing impatiant.

    I get this feeling you have a long wait ahead of you.Why else would the iPhone be launching in November in Europe?

    Something tells me they wouldn't have introduced the new 1.1 featues -- especially so casually -- if it wasn't a smallish update that was coming very soon (i.e., with the WiFi itunes store capability, which we know will be here within the month).

    I think the 11/9 launch has to do with the 1.2 Revision firmware, which I think will arrive with Leopard... with which it will have some exciting integration...

    What does an update mean for someone with programs installed like iBrickr, is it wise to restore the phone before updating the firmware then re-installing the programs?

    Hmm but, here is something that was posted officially,
    Availability of the Wifi Music Store for the iPhone is expected "in a few weeks."

    I don't know but I think that November is too far out for an iPhone update that has already been announced and even shown already, finished. But, Apple said that WWDC '07 would bring Leopard, but it didn't, so just keeping my fingers crossed. :)

    I hope it happens sometime after Tuesday next week. Why? Because I am not getting my iPhone until then and I need to unlock it to use it with Rogers.

    I've downloaded the current firmware for the phone to my computer. Does anyone know if I will be able to install it after this next firmware is released?

    The thing I'm looking forward to most is video-out. This will be my first iPod that can do that!

    @Redneck1089
    There's gotta be a trick. I was updating a friend's iPhone on a plane with my Macbook, to which I had not yet downloaded the 1.0.2 firmware. iTunes knew about 1.0.2, but since there was no network to download it with, iTunes asked if I wanted 1.0.1 instead. Worked a charm. So, perhaps you'll just need to find where those firmware images live on your hard drive, drop in the firmware you've already downloaded, and update without a connection.

    Just a thought-ish hunch. :cool:

    This is on page 95 of the iPhone manual on Apple's website:

    I don't have this setting, as far as I know. So I think this is in reference to 1.1.1 features. If they're posting user documentation on new features on the website, it can't be so far from release, right?

    That's an interesting idea. I definitely have the current firmware already downloaded to my computer. When I get the iPhone I could most likely disconnect from the internet so iTunes can't grab the newest firmware from the net, and just put the firmware I already downloaded in its place.

    Sound like it'd work? :confused::confused:

    Oh...how disappointing. I assume that was a post 1.0 addition, though, or there wouldn't have been issues with massive roaming charges in the first couple months?

    Is it certain that there is no MMS? That's the only thing that I would 'look forward' to.

    No idea where you got the idea. At the UK event, Jobs specifically said that quote, "This is going to be available later this month." I believe Steve. Right now. :D

    So does anyone think that'd work--turn the internet off on my computer when I update the iPhone so I can prevent it from switching to the upcoming firmware and just use the downloaded firmware I already have?

    Ok, I can believe that. I just hate it when people say that it's coming out in November, that's too long!:p
