Very long backup times during every sync
I seem to remember reading somewhere, but I have misplaced the article about people having problems (like myself) with the iPhone taking a very long time to backup the phone everytime I sync.
Are others having problems?
Can anyone point me to some solutions?

I think this is a issue that will only go away if Apple fixes the 2.0 firmware. Both my original iPhone (Since updated to 2.0) and the 3g do take a lot longer to sync. Although it is not that bad. The only time it really crawls is when you are installing apps.

I guess I'm lucky. I have only had one app crash on me.
I still stand by what I said about the long backups not being a bug though. I tested it with 4 backups today. For the first, I installed a new app directly to the phone and it took a long time. I then did two more syncs and the backup went twice as fast. Finally, I installed one more app and synced again, and it took longer.
I would bet that the long backups are directly related to apps.

The long backups are driving me crazy, especially since I use my computer to charge my iPhone and every time I plug it in (which is often because of the dismal battery life I'm getting) it wants to do a full backup which can take well over half an hour. My wife's iPhone was still backing up this morning after we plugged it in last night before going to bed.
