imageiPhone OS 3.1 Enforces Exchange Encryption Policy; Affects Non-iPhone 3GS Users

Based on this Apple Discussions thread it looks like many iPhone 3G and iPhone 2G users who have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1 that was released yesterday are facing problems accessing their Microsoft Exchange accounts due to device incompatibility with Exchange's server-side encryption. iPhone 3GS users are not facing the...

    This is totally absurd. Yes the 3GS has a hardware encryption chip, but anything that can be done in HW can also be done in software. They are basically just saying f*ck the old device users, as they usually do. What they should have done is to include a software encryption algorithm for the 2G and 3G.

    Another thing about Exchange Enterprise SP1 is that are options to restrict features, like WiFi, add 3rd party mailboxes, blue-tooth, and camera. As well as require password and type of password.

    The only part that the iPhone will in-force is the password and the camera. Not sure if the other settings will be added with new updates. But all you have to do is jailbreak, and edit the preferences file to enable the camera or change the password preferences. I had to do this because currently my company miss understand the licensing language on the page.

    What I don't understand is why the camera and only the camera?

    I have been having issues with my Iphone 3g where it will randomly switch over to the Edge network from the 3G network after the Iphone 3.1 update and it does this at random. There will even be certain times where I cant get signal and I work in an AT&T building. I dont think this is hardware related at all it only happened after the 3.1 update. Do you have any ideas as to why??
