So what is the conclusion
Don’t buy an Iphone for use in the wintern months becase if/when the screen crakcs the guarantee aint valid.
According to IF insurance the largest number of claims come from Iphone users.
So for other phones, it seems not to be aproblem but for Iphones, it is a big problem becasue Apple won’t honour the guarantee!
Yes, or no?????

But maybe Apple’s use of it is the first time many ordinary users will meet it, and it has to be filled in to use VPN under one of the modes, and yet no info about what should be entered there in the manual or on Apple’s site. What “p####s” me off is that large companies such as Apple and Microsoft should provide necessary info so we know what it is referring to .
It’s not my passion to have to spend hours trying to find out.

I don’t see why people should have to spend their time doing that. And then meet incompetence.
We should be able to charge them for the time we have to spend. They charge us for calls.
I have handled my bad case with Tele 2 so at least I have everything documented in emails, even when they break documented agreements.

Thanks for help. In my case the problem with dropped lines was before I upgraded to OS4. I upgraded to IOS 4 becasue the so-called experts at Tele 2 told me that would solve the problem. Been gping on 6 months.

I don’t know if you have read the latest news but Tele2 has signed a contract with Apple regarding selling Iphones. Our technical support believes that this will fasten the solution with dropping calls.”
Thanks for trying to help.

Good someone understood my Swedish. Dropping the line happens when I am speaking to someone, so the only solution is to redial (it does not automatically do this), usually you know the number of the person you are calling so it is not difficult to call back. But if you ring a switchboard e.g. Tele 2 and get to an extension, you don’t know the number and can’t ring back. So what I say is I am using an Iphone with Tele2 and there is a 1 in 4 chance it will drop the line, so could you ring me back (they don’t want to give their number – Tele 2 included) so you are dependent on them doing that. And they don’t do it often.
Reently I had to ring in an emergency a “betaltjänst” 39 kr – and of course it dropped the line, very inconvenient.
Frankly I don’t think Tele2 knows what it is doing AT ALL. And my saviour there is becoming fed up with me becasue this problem has been going on months NOW.
I am putting my time into this because I think it is scandalous to have such bad technial support and that we consumeras have to waste our time.
We should be compensated, don’t you think??
Hope this answers at least some of your question. Thanks for the support.
Long live consumers and their rights!britMemberAugust 24, 2010 at 22:40Post count: 46
Skillnad mellan ditt Iphone och mitt är att jag betalade en formögenhet till Tele 2 så att du kunde köper från Italien (service till kunder är vad de kallade det) köpte fabr4ik olåst från Tele2. Det fiinns andar på den här forum som kanske har bar service med Tele2 (jailborken) och med 3g av.
Annars vet jag ingen som har bra service – dvs no call dropping – med Tele2 med en fabrikolöst Iphone från Tele 2.
Dessutom skulle jag repetera mig själv och påstår att det ser ut som Tele 2 är inte stabil när de ger installingsinfo. Det kan jag dokumentera.

Quote Tele 2
“The problem with dropping calls with Iphone is not a Tele2 specific problem. There a many threads on different respected forums with users that experience the exact same problem that you have presented with Telia and Tre.
There is even a post with a person testing three different operators in the same phone and have the same problem with all operators.
This shows that this is not only a problem for certain Tele2 users but also a problem for users using another operator.
Here are some links to different posts I found:

First of all you have to decide who you are upset at, is it Tele2 or iPhone? If its Tele2 then terminate your suscription due to these technical errors and use another carrier that works well on iPhone. All other swedish carriers works fine on iPhone.
If its iPhone try first returning it to Tele2 and get another cellphone, Tele2 has plenty of other smartphones. Since you had these many issues with their carrier I think they would give you another phone at the equal price.
It’s the combination, maybe I’ll try and swap it for 2 Iphone 3GS 16 GB and switch to HTC!

Brian, long time no swim.
1) I doubt Tele2 will give you anything, If they did it would be phone credits, which doesn’t really serve any purpose right now…=)
2) If the price is right and the darn thing works with Telenor I myself might be interested
3) Pfft! 😛
4) Tele2 is just as likely to be flaky with iPhone 4 as it was with 3G/3GS
Yup been lazy, watching England’s brilliant performance in the VM!
OK – could imagine selling it 3GS 32 GB – bought in November I think, but no guarantee re Telenor, pristine condition as I got the best protection possible.
What’s a right price? Could also imagine chnaging it for 2 3GS 16 GB for my wife and daughter?britMemberJune 22, 2010 at 15:06Post count: 46

I have the exact same problem as you brit, and it’s more noticeable on my Jailbroken iphone 3G than on my factory unlocked 3GS. But it is hardly notiveable on other phones in the family ( an sonyericsson or an LG ) I am of cource switching SIMcard before testing the other hardware.
Could this be an iphone issue anyway.. or at least a combination between carrier and harware..
Hi bad-baboon (better sex up my own user name!)
Strange as I understood far fewer problems with jail broken phones than factory unlocked. My problems are with Tele 2 – and from the experts here I understand it’s not an Iphone problem per se , but a Tele 2 problem.

Yep, received by email – possibly not official – mysterious – is it playing for time? Seems nonsense to me. But most technial support seems that way – though the expertise on this site IMHO is very strong.
I have asked Tele 2 to clraify whose software they are referring to. I will keep posting details in the event this might help someone else.
Maybe it is good that Tele 2 is speaking to Apple?
britbritMemberMay 18, 2010 at 19:05Post count: 46
Confirmation of what some of the experts have said as thew reason for dropped lines.
“They have confirmed that the problem is the handover problem between 3G and 2G. There is an ongoing discussion with Apple on how to solve the problem and until that is solved we will continue trouble shooting with them to solve the problem.
The most likely solution will be a software update. “
Any comments on what this might mean? In terms of solutions – timewise?
Do you thin they are referring to their own software, or Apple’s?

Surely not…. dropping the line if I have understood you guys correct is not an Apple problem, but in my case a Tele 2 problem, so they might have an interest if they think longer than s/t profits?

The problem with an app like that would be that you would have to have a jailbroken iPhone to install it. Then you would for sure lose your warranty and support when you send your call logs to your carrier. Sort of catch 22 you might say. 🙂

Just to continue my constructive assisstance I posted details of 4 phone calls where the line was dropped today.
Can’t any of you whizz kids develop an app that would automatically email details of dropped calls to relevant provider.

Interesting, they may monitor but if they post here it would prolly only verify that they are viewing this as a serious issue for them. I’m pretty sure everyone at Tele2 with any insight in to this has been gagged properly…

@freebo 64648 wrote:
Dunno about expert but here goes; if your Tele2 SIM-card works in any other phone, we will only have helped Tele2 verify that their service works with that specific phone. Great stuff but very little in terms of progress for you. You have an iPhone and do not want to switch hardware platform just because their service is sub par.
They have access to the necessary logs themselves through their infrastructure, asking you to log your own issues is only to help them verify their own server logs aaaand to make you sweat a bit. Hearing them say they can not recreate your problem doesn’t come as huge surprise now does it :

Ponyboy, Wester, H3NR11K , and Freebo Magnificent Guys
Thank you so much. I have tried new SIm with Tele 2(no joy). now getting a SIM from 3Mobil (which I am still paying for but not using ahhh). If the 3Mobil works then I am going to tell Tele2 to sort the wholle problem out and compensate me, it’s their responsibility ( I am no good on these telecom things).
I only got the Iphone because I thought it was the first usable phone. Little did I realise how much time would be wasted). Whetgher its Tele 2 or Apple – I don’t know. Certainly if Apple was less proprietary, and more open these problesm might not exist.
It is also stange that Apple (I think) has been forced to have non-exclsuive agreements in France and Italy, but not in Sweden. But that’s another issue. Law makers in Sweden.
Apologies for ranting, justr frustration, but thank you so much for trying to help me.
So far Tele 2 has not replied, they refer to Datametrix as giving support. And when I spoke to Datametrix aboutr 6 months ago, they said it was Tele 2. The usual loop.britMemberApril 30, 2010 at 13:42Post count: 46

Min flickvän använder min gamla iPhone 3G som är upplåst av Telia, alltså lika upplåst som de iPhone man köper i Italien. Hon använder Tele2 och har haft problem med det sen dag 1. Droppade samtal och tappar mottagning hela tiden. För att kunna få mottagning igen måste hon starta om mobilen eller sätta på/av flygplansläge. Har provat allt, byt simkort, installerat ipcc och provat alla olika fw. Det enda som verkar hjälpa är att stänga av 3Gn, då funkar den som den ska. som jag tidigare har skrivit så har jag ingen riktig förklaring till detta bara en teori. Min teori är att eftersom Tele2 använder Telias 3G nät, så skapas det nån sorts konflikt i iPhones system när man har 3Gn på med Tele2.
Jag tror jag har samma problem sonn din flickvän med droppade samtal (Iphone med Tele 2). Har hon fått en lösning? Eller kompensation?
Är du nöjd men en lösning var du måste stänga av 3G?

In all honesty, from experience I have learned that not two iPhones seem to be alike. There seems to exist an inner being in them =)
Oh, my God …. it’s not technical facts- but idiosyncratic personalities! I thought these were standardised “commodities” !
I am now going to place a demand on tele 2 that they confirm that the Iphone works as intended with their services, and if not why not. It is ridiculous that users should do test a, b, c etc when perhaps Tele2 knows that the Iphones they7 supply unlocked do not work properly with their services.
The last remaining test I have is to use a SIM card from an operator as you said sometime ago . If that resolves the problem, then it is basic incompatibility with Tele2’s infrastructure.

It is factory unlocked. Threre’s no difference between buying an unlocked iPhone and letting Apple unlock it after purchase. You’re on equal terms
It was unlocked by 3, and he has a subscription with Tele2 and it works perfectly. And this you say is identical to my situation?
The reason I ask is that small differences might explain beavioural differences.
I also conclude that there is no one in my situation – Tele 2, factory unlocked, where all functions are working 100 correct (i.e. no 3G turned off) – compared to Telia.

Jag hade inga problem utan den ipcc fil som jag installerat. Det som störde mig var att “vidarekoppling aktiverad” kom upp när man ringde. Det var bara därför jag installerade ipcc.
Vilken iPhone har du? Fw? Osv..
Så vad freebo skrev stämmer inte, nedan
“H3NR11K; factory unlocked iPhone w/ Tele2 which works 100%”
Du är inte i samma situation som jag. Jag har ett Iphone 3GS 32 Gb (originell olöst), köpt genom Tele2 – and it drops the line 50 % of the time. Oänvändbar.

Yes, but this does not make sense. Some users say rheir Iphone is working perfectly with Tele2, e.g. Wester , and I’ve asked if he would share his settings but no response, so perhaps it is not working any more. Wester?
By the way is there a setting that notifies me when someone replies to a message of mine or topic I am interested in.
Can’t find it anywhere.

Jag har en olöst Iphone från Tele2. Ganska missnöjd faktikst därför att den tapps signalen så ofta att när jag ska ringa, då måste jag tänka hur olämpligt blir det om den tappa singalen?
Har pratat med Tele2, de säger antingen a) fel med SIM kortet b) fel med den persons tele du ringer till så jag måste kolla. När jag köper någonting så dyrt som en Iphone då tror jag den ska funka.
Finns det någon tips? Har andra problem med Tele som operatör för Iphone?
Tacksam för råd
