Apparently, bricking my phone for a full day this month wasn't enough for Apple. Today, my iPhone decided that it wouldn't recognize headphones any longer and would only play music out of the built-in speakers. After trying everything I could think of, the only option left- short of a visit to the Apple Store - was to restore the software. Unfortunately, once the restore was completed I was greeted with the dreaded "Could not complete iTunes request" error message. More than two full weeks after the launch of the iPhone 3G, Apple still hasn't fixed its iPhone activation server problems. Apple may want to consider themselve a consumer company, but until they can deliver basic functionality to their customers without endless hassles, they're just another consumer unfriendly tech company. Citing unexpected demand as an excuse for poor performance just doesn't cut it anymore. Can you say "not ready for prime time?"
