Apple Urges iPhone 2.0.2 Update Via SMS

Apple Urges iPhone 2.0.2 Update Via SMS

Apple's iPhone 2.0.2 update was the first update pushed by Apple and AT&T in a unique way: SMS messages to all active accounts that arrived late last week.

The controversial update is the first to be aggressively pushed by either of these companies who are usually quiet about such releases, which are usually accompanied by scant release notes and little intentional publicity. Apple has even gone so far as to create a new website that offers step-by-step instructions for performing the update. Still, however, no detailed release notes are provided.

Apple has publicly stated that the 2.0.2 update is designed to fix some issues related to the iPhone 3G's poor 3G network performance, though users report mixed results.
