    ... Wow... I spent like 6 hours building up my city to about 120,000 people. I go to delet 1 square so I can fit a police station and my phone freezes. Well about 10 seconds later my whole city is empty. It deleted everything for 1 little square. I have about 6 squares zones for garbage and that's all that's left. This game freezes soo much and shuts down. I really wish I could sell this game. I thought this game set the bar on games for the iPhone. Ea is such a huge company and they throw out this crap ware. I loved this game so much; I just think it took time to show he true side of the game. Buy at your own risk!

    I'm sure you are pissed I would be what device/firmware are you on? I love this game the only probs I have is when I load the game and select continue game my phone seems to freeze for about a minute or so on a white screen, maybe a loading screen but a couple times I've been ready to do a hard reset then my map comes up. iPhone 3G, 2.2 firmware

    Yeh...

    To start off on my iPhone and meant rant but it must havewrote out rave. I run the most up to date sw on a non jail broke iPhone. It's beyond pissed it just makesme not want to play that game ever again. I mean I understand as
    Sw. I trouble shoot in the iapps department at apple but this is insane. Until I know 100% that this will never happen again this game will stay off my iPhone.

    Just a few thoughts, you could email EA and detail the problem, and you could also send a private message to craiglaw here on Toucharcade. Mr. Law is a representative of Electronic Arts Mobile Division who is active here on the forums. He is a very receptive and helpful gentleman.

    ugh that sucks dude.

    I remember the same thing happened to me when I was playing SimTower back a few years ago. I sat there building my dream tower for 10 hours straight only to lose it all because of a stupid Windows crash.

    I have fond memories of the game, but never played it anymore.

    It sucked

    Yeh I mean I love the game and always have. When somehong like that happens it makes you not want to pick up the game and try again. I can definstely try emailing both of them to see where we can go with it. I just don't want it to happen again. Sry for the spelling still on the iPhone...

    I have noticed the same issue. That is why I save my city periodically just i case that happens. However loading it later is tedious if you haven't saved recently.

    Serious SimCity Bug/Glitch

    Hey everyone, I hardly post here, I mainly browse and only post when I need to ask something.

    I know a EA developer is on here so I thought I would post straight away.

    Today, a major bug caused SimCity to be removed from my iPhone today. I was building a city, going pretty well, I wanted to removed a thin strip of residential land on the border of the map to place a road there.

    Clearly only the road was selected. When I pressed the green tick, every zone in my city vanished. Even zones on the other side of the map had gone. All I had left was my water pipes and roads.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I will try to re-create this bug again and take photos.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    haha...thanks for changing it, iPhones can make up some funny words in place of others. Any ways im going to message craig law later to see if he can look into it. I think its just the freezing issue more than anything. But somehow i guess i must have been deleting at the wrong time. Ill post a pic later.

    Im sure EA will fix all of these problems, but first off: They need to be brought to EA's attention. So get on it! And second, This game DOES raise the bar for iphone apps. But its also bound to be a little slower off the bat, i mean, its algorithm has to be more complex than so many other games, and theres bound to be a few bugs that have slipped by. This game is great, and i know it will improve with updates. Just make sure they hear about these problems!
