The Summer season is in full swing! It’s no secret, the second I leave the iPhone Alley office I’m headed straight to the pool. If I wasn’t so landlocked in Oklahoma, I know that I’d be at the beach or lake instead. But, as long as I’m near some water,

You may remember that in iPhone 3.0 a bug was discovered which kept email messages on POP accounts from being properly deleted. A demo of the bug can be seen here. At the time it was believed that Apple was aware of the issue and that a fix would likely appear in the 3.1 update.

This is because the 3GS is the only iPhone OS device that has the proper hardware requirements to handle the encryption.
