iPhone iOS 4.0.1 Update: Do you have any Problems?

With just hours to go before Apple’s unexpected press conference tomorrow, the company has just rolled out iPhone iOS 4.0.1 as stated briefly in our previous article here. We want to know the problems you are experiencing after updating to the new software.

As detailed in the change log, Apple states that the update will primarily address the issue regarding signal reception and the ‘formula’ it uses to calculate how many bars should be displayed.

However, we’re hearing reports that the update has not fixed the problem for some users, and that they are still experiencing a drop of signal in places that they should be receiving full bars. On the other hand, we are also hearing a few reports that 4.0.1 has improved signal for you – so help us out here.

For those of you with an iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4 – let us know your status after updating iOS 4.0.1.

I ran the 4.1 update and then discovered that it had removed some of the phone numbers from my contacts, the names are still there but no numbers! Its very frustrating as I dont realise I am missing the contact until i try to call them…very annoying!!

WTF Apple? I just bought an iPhone4, never synced it to itunes period because I never needed to. Finally figured 2 months later i'd update it to the new os 4.0.1 and it is now stuck in recovery mode!!! Seriously, isn't an update supposed to fix issues, not create one? I went a whole weekend without a phone, now I've been sitting on hold with 1-800-myapple for 15 minutes with no hold music or operator messages. So please, could you please waste more time and money of mine?!?!?!?

Tried to update to 4.0.1 and the update completes, then it says backing up iphone. The bars scroll through as if the backup is running for about 2 min then stops scrolling. My iphone still say sync in progress. The phone stays stuck on sync in progress and the screen still says backing up iphone. It seems like it's been hours and still no update. Please help!

the screen does respond at all (home button, volume buttons are responsive) screen occasionally/rarely responds only after i connect it to the computer its not even jailbroken this is the 3rd yes 3rd iphone that has been returned for repairs, the apple staff said to keep it at 4.0 for the time being.
The new update is complete shit and is fucked in the head

Was about to upgrade my 3GS to the 4.01 but now I think I will leave it as it is. At least it works . Steve Jobs you may be a slick talker and up to now you have talked the talk but it is now time to walk the walk. At least two of the iphones at the Dublin Institute of Technology had break down problems following upgrading to 4.01.

bob

After installing this update – a 3 hour process- I can no longer retreive email unless I'm at home and using the wireless connection. The 3G function turns off on its own but even if it does stay on I can't access email or the web away from home.

too bad

ouch, good thing I read this before I updated. The last one was already lame and slowed down my phone to snail pace. I thought they did this so people would have to upgrade to a faster phone…I guess it was just incompetence after all.

Ever since I upgraded to 4.0.1 on my 3G, the phone is more sluggish, and I cannot discover any wi-fi signals at all (let alone connect to them). Rogers tells me this is a known problem, yet I don't see it posted here yet. I hope that all that's wrong with my wi-fi, and that they are working on a fix, like Rogers tells me…

All was great with my 3G until the 4.0.1 software update – then everything started to run slow and getting stock, dropping calls where didn't happen before – and texts, emails, games, etc all getting stuck – went in apple store – they have me a new phone – but with the same software so it's still the same problems!

Since 4.0.1 (apart from wrecking my configuration & backup during the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.0.1) synchronizing with iTunes 9.2.1.5 is nearly impossible. After doing the sync exactly as it worked all the months before with the same 3GS and all 3.x upgrades now I get some "unknown" Error 0xe8004002 or sometimes just a notice that a device error occured and a file is missing. Then the 3GS with 16GB will no longer displayed with 16GB but with 4GB. Something is really really wrong here. And I tried deleting the backup, switching to flicght mode, stopping all apps currently running,… Read more »

my wife and i got the iphone in oct last year and for 8 months both phones worked brilliantly, the phones were very fast, and the internet access was great, then we installed the new 4.0 software and our phones started working VERY slowly, and half the time the phone will crash in the middle of sending an email, text or surfing, even unlocking the phone takes alot longer as the screen will freeze, when surfing the screen will usually freeze for 60-90 secs every 2 or 3 mins, installed the new 4.01 software and absolutely no difference, i'm fed… Read more »

Iupgraded my iPhone 3Gs from 3.1.3 straight to OS 4.0.1 two days back and since then I have had weird issues with the phone. Some not expressed in this forum so far. Since the upgrade, I am not able to access the internet on 3G or E network at all. When placing or receiving calls, a call forwarding message pops up everytime. I lost all my voicemail and it kept prompting me to enter my password for voicemail. The signal is always at 1 – 3 bars now. I have not seen all 5 bars since the upgrade. I launched… Read more »

I updated my phone, a 3G which ran perfect before. I guess the old saying, don’t fix it if it’s not broken” stands true on this subject! Now it runs slow and I lost over 500 songs!!! I did the sync and backup first, and still lost all my music on my phone and my music apps. What a hassle, and apple is supposed to be top notch, high tech? Yea, right. Now they not only need a fix for the Iphone 4 but for the update on the 3G’s!!! UGH

I just updated my iphone 3G to 4.0.1 and now my pictures are blacked out by a big black block covering only some of the photos. This wasn't a problem till now. I tried syncing my phone to see if that would help……NOPE. I'm on a mac and would like to know how to resolve this problem. It seems there's always one problem after another. I just want a phone that works that isn't SOOOO slow!

I just updated the software on the 3G. The system automatically did a restore and wiped everything off the phone. To top it off, I also needed to do the iTunes update that dumped my backup file. Now I have a phone with no easy way to put back my lost info. I went to the apple store and was politely told that I’m SOL.

I just updated my iPhone 3G to 4.0.1 and it sucks. Apps are slow, dialing is slow, phone is freezing and has to be rebooted. This is not an Apple product I am running.

Same problem here with 3gs… dropping calls like crazy and have searching to 1 bar at my house.. other two 3gs phones with 4.0 have full service.. my phone is totally broke. apple. you need to come out with an update that removes this sh!t update from my phone that i spent good money for!

I had issues with the update but after tinkering with it got it to load. Now my 3G is slow as sand and has NO signal where it used to have a good signal.

Today I tried Powering down with both buttons while being plugged into itunes and now it show's i have a full battery, but itunes still does not recognize that my phone is plugged in.

My 32GB iPhone 3GS is now a brick. What will Apple end up doing for me now? Give me an 8GB iPhone 3GS? Give me an iPhone 4? Or maybe they're just going to tell me that I'm holding my brick in the wrong hand…

Got my 3GS bricked thanks to update 4.01. Stuck in recovery mode update fail and fail and fail due to error 1604. Tried whatever shit & reinstalled iTunes, same shit happens. Finally resolved, cause was the missing driver usbaaplrc.dll. downloaded from: http://www.corrupteddatarecovery.com/File-Data/us… no idea why driver gone missing while performing update 4.01??? Anyone encountered similar problem?? Phone working fine… recovered from last backup..pheww..

Updated my wife's 3GS tonight to 4.01 and now it's a brick stuck in recovery mode. It had a huge file with errors that I neglected to save.

Upgraded fine on my phone but I used the mac version of Itunes with an issue.

Don't know who sucks more but i am not digging it.

To those complaining about having less bars after the update…. That was the whole point of the update!! The OS 4 was giving artificially high signals. So you do not have less signal now you have what you always had you just didn’t know it… Because the phone was incorrectly telling you that you had more. Didn’t you guys listen to Apple at all about this?? Go back to 4.0 if you want to “see” more bars that aren’t really there

Just did the 4.0.1 update on my 3G iphone. After installing the 4.0 update it was very, very slow and wouldn't react proper. This problem seems to be fixed now, but for some reason all of my pictures are now showing in such a low resolution that they are just blurry. Thought something could be adjusted with itunes, but apparently there is no such option and no way to get the pictures back to the resolution that they used to have.

I have an iBrick 3G.
Updated iTunes first, then downloaded the new Phone OS 4.0.1, update seemed to stick about 3/4 complete. Upgrading to 4.0 took 2.5 hrs, so I just went to bed and left it to it. This morning, still the same. Aborted, back into restore mode. Seems to have stopped at the same place! I have to go to work in an hour!!!!

On my 3G Reception has considerably reduced, Photos are masked in black, My Notes tend to undo themselves once I leave the application if i edit a note it will revert back to the original w/out saving update. The phone runs very slowly even swiping from screen to screen. I don’t want to do a factory reset and lose everything. I’d rather take my chances with a new update to fix this MESS. Is Lemon I mean Apple trying to crash our old iPhones so we will buy the new iphone4?

Great stuff from Apple yet again. Not content with selling a phone which doesn't work correctly (oh no wait….it does apparently), the "fix" they release for the issue which "isn't an issue" then screws up the phone so we have to do a factory reset.

Oh and what a surprise: now that I've restored it all (several hours later) the same problems with the phone arise, with a few extra ones for good measure.

Seriously cannot believe I wasted £600 on this shoddy, poorly designed and maintained junk. Should have stuck with my 3G

I updated my 3GS phone from 4.0 to 4.0.1 and lost most of the signal. I normally had 5 bars at home and now I have only 1 to 2 bars. I did not have any issues prior to this update. Why would Apple srew this phone up this bad. The problem was with the new phone and they should have been working on that, instead they made the issue worst and now affecting all iphones.

Have been trying to update to 4.0.1, but tried few times and still got stuck @ the backup step, not able to update to the phone. Guess after seeing all the responses here, I will hold on to update, since all the side effects (recover mode, no photo seen any more, etc.)

I have the same problems as a few here. It runs ok. Its not even that slow, but my signal at my house where I am practically under the tower when down to 3 bars. WTH Apple. I go out of my way to defend Apple and their products to my Windoz friends but that makes me want to trash my phone and go get a Droid or Windows phone. And of course there is no way to revert back to 4.0 as all my backups are not selectable.

Updated my 3Gs yesterday and now i have from 0-3 bars only. i had full bars with the 4.0 update. i called apple and he told me to reset the network, which i did but has not made a difference. we had the iphone 4 but sent it back to apple full refund. this phone was working PERFECTLY with the 4.0 upgrade then yesterday upgraded to 4.01 and now it really sucks. my daughter's phone is exactly the same as mine.

I have a iphone 3G. I'm not having any problems with reception as such but I'm noticing that the phone's battery life has dropped significantly. My cousin (with a 3GS) is also experiencing this problem. Originally, the phone's battery life would last for around 3 days. Now, it doesn't even last 24 hours. We both do not fiddle around with apps on our phone for hours on end.

Update from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1 went smoothly on my 3G today (7/16). I live in an area with marginal reception. In the past, 1 to 3 bars would show, sometimes changing every few minutes, and occasionally dropping service completely. With 4.0.1, I'm still getting 1 to 3 bars but the change is less frequent and haven't dropped service yet.

Yeah as soon as I did the Update 4.0.1 my solar charger stopped working, and I just got that in the mail 2 days ago. Bought it from Wagan Tech Solar E Charger Exec-Duo. My solar charger worked great before the update. How the heck do you update to plain old IOS4.0 after a restore is performed?

Well, upgraded last night. Absolutely no problems. However, now for some reason, while I’m at work, I get absolutely no signal. I’ve also notices after driving around for a few minutes that everywhere I’ve gotten signal before now has “no service”. This is becoming a big annoyance as I use my phone for business. I called customer support and they told me to charge the phone completely up and do a restore on it. We’ll see how that goes. If that works, it’s only a minor setback I suppose, but we will see.

The 4.01 update has made my service worse, I went from dropping about 60% to dropping around 75%, all it looks like it did was make the first bar on the reception longer so it looks like your getting more coverage when your actually getting less, I’m done with my iPhone 4 and unless they make a recall of all of them then I’m switching it out for an htc or the samsung captivate
