Does anyone else have problems with safari crashing alot? It seems to happen daily for me and is really starting to get on my nerves. I mean I hate to say it but ie for wm was more stable although it looked alot worse.

Do a reset. Hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake switch at the same time. When the "Slide to turn off message" pops up, KEEP HOLDING them. Once you see the Apple logo, it is safe to let go. Power it back on and see how it goes.
This thing is a computer, and like any computer, PC or Mac, it will require the occasional restart. Just turning it off is not the same as the method outlined above. This method is the way you do a "battery pull" on an iPhone.

That is unless I win one here, then I think the convincing would be a little easier.

1. Sold my iPod nano for $130 - new iPhone cost $370
2. Sold my Moto Razr for $50 - new iPhone cost $320
3. $100 gift card to Apple store - new iPhone cost $220
In the end, $220 was more than reasonable.

This is a very unnerving thread to read. Not owning an iPhone right now, but wanting one really bad, I was not expecting to hear about the common "Microsoft" problems showing up on an Apple phone. I thought that was Apple's forte, stable operating systems/programs. I used to have a WM handheld, before WM phones, and had to soft reset that all the time, I do not want another product where that is needed.

Ah, those resets must be a digital placebo effect. Certainly calmed my fears.
@ burnsaa, that's a sweet gig! I try to be fair to my Xbox 360, but Apple still wins out, for me.
@NPR_aficionado, it's a case by case thing. Have no worry, the iPhone works wondrously easy and is very, very stable. You'll thank yourself for buying one

Think of it this way: just because you take aspirin to fight a fever doesn't mean you also need to take aspirin for a scraped knee; not every problem demands the same solution.

Yes, Safari sometimes crashes, and I expect those to decrease with each new software update. However, I still loved my first-generation iPhone, I probably won't be able to sleep tonight thinking about the WWDC keynote, and I'll order the new iPhone as soon as it's put up on the Apple Store. In short, no phone is perfect, and Safari crashing a few times doesn't mean it's not the world's best phone.

I have had issues like this more when the phones first came out, they've definitely gotten better now. However, there are still some things that happen such as crashes, lockups, and this one weird bug where I can move the webpage around, but can't click on any links or buttons.
