After four hours of messing with my temporarily bricked iPhone, the 2.0 software was finally activated. After all this wait, it was a bit of a let down to turn on my iPhone and really not much has changed. You now have the App Store icon and the new scientific calculator but that’s about it. But I didn’t upgrade or get the iPhone for those, I wanted Direct Push/Pull for our systems Exchange server and it was a long time coming. Configuring it was very easy and I was ready to go within minutes. The only problem that I had was when I added the username (DOMAIN\username) and password, I was told it was incorrect. I didn’t bother troubleshooting it too much because went ahead and used the username along with active directory domain name (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). After that, all was well. My contacts and calendar synced without fail. It’s sure nice to have that functionality back again.
More thoughts to come as I play with this. Already found some apps that I just might have to purchase. My question is, how will those apps transfer to my 3G iPhone I’m getting next week?
Quick Add: Just installed the Pandora radio app. A must have for music lovers.
