Apple licensed EAS. I believe the only EAS licensees are Apple, Palm, SonyEricsson and DataViz.

EAS is not the same thing as MAPI.

The Outlook plugin is running on the Windows client, hacking Outlook to talk to non-Exchange servers. It's pretty unreliable (at least, the Groupwise version was) since every hotfix/servicepack/upgrade broke the mechanism.

So, the iPhone is out of stock everywhere now.

If this is just an accidental product shortage and not the precursor to a 3G iPhone release in the next few days, I suspect someone's going to be in deep, deep shit.

My lovely little iPhone is now a lovely little paperweight. And not a terribly effective one, as it's so light.

Dead, dead, dead.

It was working at about 8 this evening, with about half a charge on the battery. At 9, after putting my daughter to bed, I tried to wake it up. Nothing. I plugged it in to make sure it had a charge. Nothing. Left it plugged in for 90 minutes. Nothing. Tried holding down the startup/shutdown button on the top for 15 seconds. Nothing. Tried connecting it to my iMac. Nothing. It's dead, dead, dead.

Is there anything obvious I can try before I brave the Genius Bar?

The Genius Bar is painless. Make sure to set up an appointment. When the bottom portion of my iPhone wouldn't respond to touch, I took it in. They looked at it and I was out with my new phone within 20 minutes of the start of my appointment.

I think the reset is actually the square button at the bottom combined with the top button.

jeff, if that doesn't work, you can try to take it to a new computer and try to restore it. if that works, bring it back to its "home" computer, restore and sync. no idea why that works, but it did with mine.

Aaaaaaand ... we're back. As Mokers says, I was using the wrong reset combination. I figured that out last night and got a very brief response--the Apple logo, then a dead screen. I plugged it back in to the power adapter, and it started fine. I then left it plugged in overnight, and this morning all seems well. So far.

I'm still not sure how the battery could have gone from half-charged to fully discharged over the course of one hour of non-use. I'm going to keep an eye on that.

Thanks for the help, guys.

I have had my iPhone discharge rapidly when it was trying to log onto an 802.11 network that appeared accessible, but wasn't. It was like it was continuously sending name/password info or something. It gets quite warm doing this.

My phone shut down in mid-call this evening. Prior to the call it was showing a nearly full charge--as it should have, as I'd just charged it this morning. I was able to awaken the phone just long enough to see that the battery indicator was showing a 75% charge; then it clicked off again. Plugged it in, it worked fine; unplugged it, it clicked off within seconds again. Plugged it in again, returned my call, checked my email, everything worked.

Seems like a battery problem, yes?

Sounds like what my cordless phone at home was doing tonight while I was talking to Madaracs.

The phone thought it had a full charge but started blanking out for a few seconds at a time. Then, after a few fades in-and-out, it showed low battery and then empty battery.

Got my wife's iPhone replaced in 5 minutes at the Apple Store (broken Home button). We think the new one is a refurb, but it's less chipped up than my wife's original phone was, so we're ahead on the deal. Beautiful service at the Genius Bar.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
The very bottom strip of my iPhone's touch screen stopped working. Alas, no Apple store in Maine so the box arrives today for me to send it back. Maybe this is one product where the extended warranty is smart.

What's so odd about the spotty support for EDGE is the fact that all GSM base equipment support it out of the box. It's the providers' decision not to switch it on, or in the case of the Netherlands, to turn it off after one provider was bought out by the other.

The sale of G3 frequencies for insane amounts of money in the late nineties has stiffled innovation and competition.

Why can't Apple get this availability thing right? Sure, they're famous for never having enough product to meet initial demand when new stuff is announced but the iPhone has been out for almost a year now. Everybody knows they have a new model coming out next month but that's NEXT MONTH. There's no excuse for having such a poor grip on your product levels that you regularly "run out" of product after this long (this same rant applies even more to Nintendo).
