Technical glitches hit iPhone users

A number of the first iPhone users in the US are reporting technical problems, reports Reuters.

The iPhone, which was released in the US last Friday, is posing various problems for users, with 2% of purchasers experiencing difficulties, says Reuters.

AT&T, which is the exclusive mobile operator in the US for the phone, said it is fixing issues “partly technology related and partly process related”.

Some problems are connected to the high volume of people trying to activate their service.

This is likely to be a concern for Apple, considering that AT&T was supposed to be employing thousands of extra staff to cope with iPhone demand.

Analyst Gartner has warned firms not to use the iPhone because of security and business app integration issues.
