Super Monkey Ball is acting weird. Some audio tracks get slowed down to the point they sound funny. When a level begins and the voice asks "ready?", sometimes, it sounds like Darth Vader is asking me the question. Safari quits on me more often. I think that in my case, 2.1 made it worse, since I did not suffer due to dropped calls, contact search lag, or poor signal before.

***Note: I am using 2G Iphone***
I definitely believe there are some issues that came along with this new helpful firmware update.
I have noticed that the backup is much shorter(mine was always fairly quick), the contact list is still delayed just a tiny tiny bit but good enough, and the texting is so much better because it never lags!
I had a weak battery after my full charge after updating to 2.1. After changing both my Gmail and Exchange email accounts to fetch hourly they batter has lasted much much longer. Also, when checking email, the downloading seems to be a bit faster which is also nice.

So far I am happy with my 2.1 update I used my phone all day Friday, went out with friends, left the bar at midnight got a call from a friend she went though high water and flodded her car I took her home and made calls till about 1:45. Forgot to charage my phone, got up at 630 to go pick her up so we could look at her car. by the time I was done helping her I had 32+ hours and over 6 house of usage and still have 1/4 of my battery left. This is by far the best update yet (for battery life that is.)

Having browser crashes, much less app crashes (still have them though), and weird Edge coverage. It goes to one bar, to no service to 4 bars in the home even in the same spot.
I know at&t is playing with femtocells like the sprint airwave. Hopefully this won't take much longer as that would solve my major con.

Well, I've been running 2.1 for a bit now and find that it has definitely improved battery life with 3G enabled. I'm thinking that I might actually leave it turned on now -- I'd previously disabled 3G and still had to charge my phone once a day.
As for signal strength, locations where I had one bar or constant Edge-to-3G flipping, I'm now getting up to 3 bars. At home, where it was the worst, I've actually seen five bars (though usu 3 or 4). Amazing. No dropped calls yet, but then I don't use phone heavily either.

First I had the issue with mobileme constantly pinging and heating my phone up draining the battery.... after a hard reset it was still there, then I disabled push for contacts and calendar and it went away! Now mobileme is not pushing properly to the phone since yesterday. I'm hoping it is a issue with mobileme, it was working fine previously. Anyone else having push issues with mobileme?

Just an update.
After upgrading, I was having the same battery problems as BadAsh (although I was using only Yahoo and Microsoft Exchange push). It was getting hot, and the battery would last about 1/2 day (if I was lucky).
I did a hard reset, reinstalling my apps (and losing my spores - sad) but now my battery life is great. I have gone 22 hours since my last charge, and I have about 30% of my battery left.
According to the usage meter, I have had 2.5 hours of use, and 22.5 hours of standby since the last full charge - and as I said, about 30% of the battery left. Use was mostly playing Spore last night, with some phone calls. I used the GPS once, qand watched about 10 minutes of a video and used about 20 minutes of song playing. I have push, 3G, wifi all enabled.

Everything is still going really well (should I really be that surprised?) the only thing that I still get are repeated emails - they appear in my inbox again as new even if I've deleted them. I don't have Exchange or MobileMe and I thought that issues with email were going to be sorted. Compared to the difficulties I had before 2.1 this is just a minor itch.

Battery life is better, WiFi doesn't disconnect all the time, even at full bars, it's more response overall...not bad.
I would like to re-jailbreak it. I know you Mac guys have two pwnage tools already. WinPwn 2.5 was great for me for jailbreaking 2.0.2.
Any idea when there will be a Windows tool for jailbreaking 2.1?

Still having call related issues
Is anyone else still having call related issues after installing 2.1?
My signal and ability to access the 3G network both appear to be worse than prior to installing the new update and my calls using the default Edge network have suffered in both quality and number of dropped calls.
