AT&T glitch causing upload issues on iPhone 4

http://content.usatoday.com

If you're an iPhone 4 user having trouble sending pictures or other media, blame a network glitch from AT&T. The company says software issues in Alcatel-Lucent network equipment are hampering upload speeds for the iPhone 4, the Associated Press reports. The problems have been discovered only in some areas of the U.S., and AT&T is working to remedy the situation, says the AP. The upload woes represent the latest problem facing Apple's highly-anticipated smartphone since launching two weeks ago. Users had reported poor reception, blamed on the device's antenna. Apple responded by claiming an incorrect formula for determining signal strength was the reason behind the weaker reception. Also, as Cnet reports, the reception troubles have spawned a series of lawsuits.

AT&T blames slow iPhone 4 uploads on Alcatel-Lucent

http://news.cnet.com

AT&T is blaming the iPhone 4's sluggish upload speeds in some areas of the country on 3G wireless gear from supplier Alcatel-Lucent. On Wednesday, AT&T issued a statement saying a software glitch in the Alcatel-Lucent equipment is limiting data upload speeds from smartphones and data sticks using the latest version of 3G technology known as HSUPA. HSUPA is an acronym for High Speed Upload Packet Access. It increases upload speeds to between 500 kilobits per second and 1.2 megabits per second. "AT&T and Alcatel-Lucent jointly identified a software defect--triggered under certain conditions--that impacted uplink performance for Laptop Connect and smartphone customers using 3G HSUPA-capable wireless devices in markets with Alcatel-Lucent equipment," said Jenny Bridges, a spokeswoman for the company. Since the iPhone 4 is currently the only smartphone that AT&T offers that is using HSUPA, AT&T said that the problem only affects a small number of its wireless customers, which includes some laptop data stick users, who also use the HSUPA technology. AT&T said the company has come up with a temporary fix that should restore upload data speeds to regular 3G speeds.

Apple Reportedly Bans Overtly Sexual iPhone Apps

http://www.pcworld.com

Apple reportedly has a new policy for its iPhone app store in which any application with "overtly sexual content" will be removed from the App Store, according to an e-mail obtained by TechCrunch. But just like countless previous times, this latest tweak to Apple's app rejection policy will have app developers scratching their heads trying to figure out what's going on. Wobbly Policy
One app that has been removed from iTunes, called Wobble iBoobs, lets you take a selected image of a bikini model, add "wobble zones" to the photo, and then make those parts of the image move when you shake your iPhone. This app's function was apparently a little too hot for Apple, so the app's developer, Jon Atherton, received a removal notice from Apple, according to TechCrunch.Referring to the Wobble iBoobs application, Apple reportedly wrote, " We have recently received numerous complaints from our customers about this type of content and have changed our guidelines appropriately. We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store, which includes your application."

SlingPlayer Mobile iPhone App Goes 3G Friendly Today

http://indyposted.com

Sling Media, makers of the SlingPlayer hardware and software packages will go live today with AT&T 3G capabilities for iPhone users. Previously only WiFi connected users could stream their videos over their iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS devices.
SlingPlayer allows users to stream their cable, satellite or DVR files directly to their outside devices over high speed internet, previously AT&T had disallowed 3G use of the system for fear that it would cause unnecessary congestion on their fledgling 3G service. AT&T announced several weeks ago that they would allow 3G service to be used with the iPhone SlingPlayer App, but Apple had to first approve the program, which is now available via the App Store. The cost of the 3G version is $29.99, with a free download available to users who have already purchased the WiFi version of the program.
In order to use the program users will also need to purchase a Sling Box which is hooked up to their home video setup and internet connection.

Apple issues warning about location-based ads in iPhone apps

http://www.downloadsquad.com

Sometimes, Apple's decisions about content in the App Store can be petty and anti-competitive -- like asking developers to remove any mention of Android. But sometimes, they make a call that seems to put users first. This time, it's a request that developers use your location to provide useful information, rather than just serving you location-based ads. Here's the text of the warning to developers, posted in Apple's developer forum:
If you build your application with features based on a user's location, make sure these features provide beneficial information. If your app uses location-based information primarily to enable mobile advertisers to deliver targeted ads based on a user's location, your app will be returned to you by the App Store Review Team for modification before it can be posted to the App Store.'
Developers might balk at the removal of a possible cheap and easy revenue stream, but I think Apple is doing the right thing, here. Apps like Foursquare and Gowalla, which allow business to advertise specials, should be unaffected, because they also your location for checking in, finding your friends, and other important game elements.

Skype Calls Over 3G Coming To iPhone "Real Soon Now"

http://www.businessinsider.com

Skype users will soon be able to place calls from iPhones over the 3G network, thanks to an update to Apple's policies, according to a post on Skype's official blog.

Skype for iPhone currently allows Skype-to-Skype and Skype-to-phone calls only through a wireless connection. Until recently, Apple had banned VOIP programs like Skype from enabling calls over the 3G network. The new version of Apple's Software Development Kit, rolled out with the iPad, removes this restriction.

As a result, Skypers will be able to call each other for free from anywhere AT&T's network operates. No firm date has been set for the new feature, but the company promises that it will be available "real soon now".
