    Ok... how about some real useful info huh!?



    I'm installing now... current state of my iPhone is:



    - all third-party apps crash on launch

    - iTunes reports all my music is there and synched... iPhone says "nope. no music"



    I got tired of trying to fix this, as most of my backups are also hosed.

    I've removed from the iPhone most of the apps (down to about 20...)



    Let's see if it fixes everything outright... or if I need to restore from scratch

    (Hey how about synching NOTES! )



    -- update in awhile...

    app syncs are still turtle slow compared to music syncs. Why can I transfer 4 gigs of music quicker than 250mb of apps on the iphone?

    Faster overall. Possible to scroll webpages while they load. Faster loading times for web pages. Had no problem with reception before so I haven't tried it. Updating applications keeps the icon in place (and seems faster).



    Remaining problems:

    - Contact application still takes alot of time at startup before letting me scroll the list.



    - Swedish word corrector still very buggy, many words get extremely weird suggestions and it does not seem to learn very well either. Well, hopefully they have received my bug report....

    Are you sure you want MMS? Really really really sure?



    I mean, if everyone had a phone that could display pictures in e-mail (or their Facebook app), why would we need it in the first place? Then we could just e-mail them to people, regardless of whether or not they're on a phone or a computer, and be sure they can receive them. Better yet, we wouldn't have to pay the freakin' carrier $4.99 for the privilege!



    I realize old standards die hard, but let's do all we can to kill this one.

    Because music is just a bunch of files that are able to be accessed, the apps are actually getting installed and becoming part of the operating system. I agree, it should still not be THIS slow, but there is still a lot more going on when you install apps than a simple file transfer.

    Phone is definitely more responsive. Contact list comes up nice and quick. Backups are also much faster now and that is one thing I was really looking for in this update. Wow, Safari is really responsive. Gmail comes up alot quicker now, did they improve the javascript engine? Never really had a problem with 3G here in Atlanta so can't tell if calls are better. Will have to play some more.

    You'll have to wait a day or two before anybody can tell you about the battery life "improvements".

    Well The Bugs Seem To Be Fixed! So let's start complaining about something else like it stops my toaster from toasting my bread just right...lol. Kudos Apple!



    What will be nice is when Push is put through and a few other little apps come along that will make life a little easier like voice recognition, GPS turn by turn commands just to mention a couple. I am sure it won't be long before Apple comes out with those.



    And by the way, for all you idiots who say iPhone users are lab rats for Apple, You must have short term memory. Microsoft has been doing it for over a decade and are still doing it with Vista.



    Now that Preaches

    Hopefully the iPhone version won't have the Standby battery drain issue the touch currently has.

    I don't understand the feedback being given about the Contacts application lag. Is it still there or not? Some say it is, some some it isn't. That doesn't make sense (it's even mentioned in the features list). So how is it really?!

    Well OK!



    Install went flawlessly.



    First check: Music. CHECK!



    It's all there - no re-synching... (DRM wrapper stuff fixed...? If that was the problem)



    Second check: Apps. CHECK!



    removem worked fine.

    GoSkyWatch worked FINE.



    OK! It has been a rough few months... but this bodes very well!



    (btw - I'm on a first gen iPhone)
