Apple iOS4 Users Hit Microsoft Exchange Snag

Evidently early adopters of the new iPhone 4 have more problems than the curious case of antenna failure. A growing number of users are reporting difficulties syncing their iPhones running iOS4 with their Microsoft Exchange accounts. Gmail users have reported similar issues.

Enterprise Mobile Today takes a look at the latest problems bubbling up with Apple's new mobile operating system, and the fix suggested by the company.


While the iPhone 4's widely reported antenna reception issue has accounted for the lion's share of the phone's negative attention since its launch, a problem with the device's new iOS 4 operating system has also bubbled up in recent days, prompting Apple to post a suggested fix.

The problem stems from iOS 4 users trying to sync their Microsoft Exchange accounts. According to a 12-page (and counting) discussion thread on Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) support boards, the problem seems to hit Exchange 2003 users particularly hard. The problem wasn't limited to Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Exchange either as Gmail users also noted a similar problem on the Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) support boards.
