It's difficult to hear while at the World. I like to keep my vibrate feature on and put it in my pocket or wristlet so I feel it.

Because it is so darn loud there. I don't know how you could possibly hear your phone ring, especially if it is in your pocket or handbag. Half the time, I don't even feel the vibration if I have it set on that since I'm always moving.

Hey, Tiggermetoo, don't laugh at this but I'm just putting it out there because I have done this...

Did you make sure you didn't accidentally hit the ringer on switch on the side of the iPhone? I have accidentally turned off my ringer so many times without knowing it Just check on this, it's usually the culprit for me.

GL!

I've checked the ringer & it's on. I guess it's just too loud. Wanted to make sure it wasn't something else. Thanks all!

I have joined the ranks of the "i".

Yep. That's the one major design flaw of the iPhone. As I slip the phone into and out of my pocket, I often accidentally flip that switch.

Keeping your phone on silent (vibrate) is really important in the parks. You won't hear it ringing - unless you're in a quiet attraction and then everybody will hear it. Bad Show.

I connect my phone and get the prompt that an update is available. I click that I want to download and install the new version. It downloads fine. Then it starts the backup process and that's as far as I get. Tonight, I started the back up about 70 minutes ago and so far, the progress bar has barely moved, maybe 1/16" is blue. At that rate, it would take a week to finish.

Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be?
I finally found a solution to this problem. I asked at the Apple store today. At first, I wasn't sure the guy understood what I was talking about, but what he suggested trying worked perfectly.

First, do a backup of your phone. Then do a restore. That will restore and update the phone to iOS4. Then do a restore from backup to get all of your apps and data back on your phone. Ta-dah! I now have iOS4 installed and it didn't take any insane amount of time (probably would have been even faster had I thought to get rid of my photos first).

I'm in the cult now. My company finally approved iPhones for company email and my iPhone 4 arrived on Friday.

One question- I am looking for an app that I can scan business cards that will then load it into my Outlook contacts. Any recomendations?

We are using BC Reader at our office, it loads into Gmail contacts very well so I am going to assume it works well with Outlook.

It's much harder to do on the iPhone 4, especially with a bumper.

If not, you could export the contacts.

I'm looking for a good Streaming DIsney Theme Park music app. Mouse World Radio seems to work off and on, Live365 wants you to pay so no DIS music (I really wish they'd go elsewhere... I have NEVER liked live 365) and I can't seem to find anything on Pandora.

Any recommendations?

Perhaps Disney's attorney threatened them because they used the name "Disney" in their title?

Does anyone know of a good countdown app that I can use in its place? I really liked the WDW theming, but I guess I won't be able to find anything close to that.

Thanks!
I found one recently called WDW Countdown. I've only had it for a week and so far I really like it. It let's you pick your picture out of various attractions and resorts.
