Response to iPhone 3.0 beta firmware faq on Engadget

I just got finished reading Engadget’s article “iPhone 3.0 beta firmware faq”: http://www.engadget.com/2009/03/19/iphone-3-0-beta-firmware-faq/. I have to say, their one question and I quote:

“Is it stable enough for real use?

So far, yes — if you’re an Engadget reader, you’re probably an early adopter-type who’s willing to deal with a little pain. So far 3.0 has been pretty good, I wouldn’t try to talk anyone out of it (unless they had some crucial apps that weren’t yet working in 3.0, or needed it to be unlocked or jailbroken).”

I do not agree with that. I don’t think it is stable enough for real use yet. Granted, I am using it but I have been having problems that I would much rather fix than have the new features. To be honest, I’ve been an iPhone user since iPhone original day 1. I never had landscape SMS. So I haven’t used that new feature yet, and don’t see that I will cause I’ve just been used to portrait SMS for ever now. Secondly, I really wanted MMS. Guess what? It doesn’t work on AT&T yet. So that’s a bust. Also, I have had numerous weirdo bugs like freezing while trying to answer a phone call. Also, photos don’t load in facebook, and twinkle puts messages behind the status bar on occasion. I tried to play music, and nothing was playing. I had to fully restart the phone.

Don’t get me wrong, I love iPhone and I love iPhone 3.0. I would think twice before installing beta software again. And I definitely wouldn’t recommend it to people who are just casual users. However, I do plan on building an app that takes advantage of some of the 3.0 SDK features, hoping to get it out for 3.0 launch. That would be awesome.
