The iPhone OS 2.0.2 software: To upgrade or not to upgrade? Two stories this week might give iPhone owners pause. First, RoughlyDrafted Magazine writes that a source inside AT&T suspects reception problems plaguing many iPhone 3G users are based on faulty power-control software inside the phone. The 2.0.2 update was intended to fix this problem, according to the source, and the more people who upgrade, the better reception will get.
