Maybe its just me, but my IMAP emails are now immediately pushing to my phone...not mobile me, not exchange but my 3rd party IMAP emails are immediately showing up without a fetch. Maybe apple finally implemented IMAP idle support!!!
Anyone else want to try this out and verify?

More of a fix than a "feature" but I know some people are going to have this issue.
I'm pretty sure you cannot manually manage your music and use the Genius, so here's what I did:
In iTunes, click on a song and then the Genius button.
Click on "Save Playlist" at the top of the list of songs. This will create a playlist in your "playlists" section of iTunes.
Drag the newly created playlist up to your iPhone. It'll create a Genius playlist on your iPhone but more importantly the Genius function now appears to work on the iPhone itself.
Thanks to the Apple Discussion Forums.

Ok, so after the 2.1 install i am very impressed...
1 feature is that when updating apps from the app store on the phone the icons go back to their original position once they are finished updating!! I love this one.
Also, they werent lying about the 3G reception, i have my g/f's 3G and mine right next to each other, and mine with 2.1 has 5 bars holding steady while hers with 2.0.2 has only 2 and is fluctuating between E and 3G occasionaly...
So altogether, as long as the battery life is increased as promised i think this will be the best update so far...

Finally got 2.1 installed after a bit of a nightmare. I expected the backup before the installation to be long. 6 1/2 hours later and it was nearly done then an error message saying couldn't be completed as phone had disconnected (but it hadn't). Anyway, unplugged it then plugged it back in and everything went through pretty quickly. When I went to sync again to get the Genius and green apps bit, backup apparently couldn't complete as "phone had disconnected" again - hope this isn't another bug.
So far, things do seem slicker, the keyboard is faster, the alerts in Twinkle seem to be louder and I've got 5 bars all the time now. Looking forward to seeing what else it will do.

In long text messages, the older messages are hidden, so you can scroll through the newer ones faster. At the top, there's a new button that says "Load Earlier Messages" that lets you do just that.
BTW, on the genius thing, I must not be one. When I go to playlists, it's not there. I think I read somewhere else about re-syncing to fix the issue.
