I’ve talked about this before, using the iphone field test to get numbers instead of bars to see what kind of reception you are getting on your phone. When I checked my phone before 2.1, I used to get -99 to -107 db on my couch. Once I updated to 2.1, I was still getting -99 to -107 and during a call… dropped.

So I figured, ok, yet another useless update.

However, a day and a half later, I finally jailbroke (pwned) the phone and did another field test.  This time it was coming in at -77db. (lower is better folks) Hmmm.. So the question is; was ATT slow in updating the software on their towers or did jailbreak actually improve my iphone performance!!  Well, I’m pretty sure it was ATT, but its fun to think it was jailbreak.

So far, I have not had another dropped call, but I do not use the iphone that much (mostly a skype user) so I’m not sure we can jump to any conclusions.

I said I would take a ride on Friday, and I did.  I just have not had time to write anything up till now.

I took a short ride with trackthing lite on before the iphone 2.1 update and after hoping the GPS will work better and my graphs would be more stable with less spikes.  Sorry to say.. FAIL.

Filed under: iphone — perivision @ 11:32 pm

Ok.. Not sure what it means, but alright.  This cartoon popped up briefly on my iphone during the 2.1 iphone update.

After some looking around on the web, I think it says “hello”.  I have a few friends who speak Russian, I’ll hav this double checked …… still loading 2.1 however ….

Jailbreak for iphone 2.1 already out! WOW!

I’m really getting sick of how the phone will sometimes lock the screen on me after a phone call, forcing me to reboot.  I’ve complained about this I do not know how many times.  Almost enough that this morning I thought, perhaps I will sacraficed my jailbreak apps just to fix it.  ANNNDDD.. They already have a jailbreak out!  Can you believe it?
