6 Serious Problems with iPhone 2.2 OS, The iPhone 2.2 OS update came out yesterday and users are rushing to download the update to activate additional features Google Maps Street View, voice call and email enhancements, and a refreshed iPhone Safari UI. But, it seems to be a bad news for the early updaters. iPhone Atlas have reported several problems such as problems with broken third-party applications to internet connection issues and some bugs. Let me list the problems

1. App Store is too slow

Users have reported that the app store is loading really slow after the update. If it’s sever side problem i hope Apple with take care of it soon.

2. Distance Unit Error in Google Maps

Google Maps are displaying kilometers instead miles for a wide set of countries. To solve this problem for the time-being change your country to USA, but users outside america see this as a nuisance.

3. Internet Connection Trouble

Users complaining that they are not allowed to connect to the internet over their cellular networks. This issue can be resolved by switching from 3G to EDGE (or, for carriers other than AT&T, the appropriate GPRS network).

4. Problems with E-mail Deletion

I have the same trouble with my current OS to delete mail from accounts like Gmail and AOL. Users have reported similar problems in deleting AOL mails. You can manually fix this issue. Goto Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (Your account name) > Advanced > Deleted Mailbox, then setting for the “On My iPhone” Trash for a POP account, or “On the Server” for an IMAP account.

5. Third-Party Applications broken

This is bad news for power users, i use my iPhone mainly considering the apps in them. Some 3rd applications will not function properly like before under the new iPhone OS 2.2 due to API changes and other alterations. These include a number of applications that use CoreAudio. These applications will generally need to be updated by their developers. However, you can try uninstalling then reinstalling applications for problems that do not involve API or other strict compatibility problems.

6. “SIM card not inserted” or “PIN Lock”

Not this again, it happened to me twice. This error is really irritating. Users are recieving errors that the SIM card is not inserted, or that a PIN lock is in place when none should exist. You can solve the SIM issue by removing the SIM card, then connect to your computer and restore. Then iTunes will reload the software, and followed by that you can re-insert the SIM card and attempt synchronization with iTunes.

If you get the PIN lock message, try the tips in this forum
