Undocumented 2.1 Features
Figured I would start a thread that we all can post to for undocumented features of the 2.1 firmware only.
Here is what I have found so far.
~You can pause the installation of apps by simply clicking on the icon.
~While listening to music via your headphones you can click the mic 3 times to go back a track.
~You can now take away the camera in the parental settings.
~You are now able to see APPS in iTunes to see how much space they are
If I find more I will post asap.

I'll try to remember what i read in other forums as itunes was restoring:
1. Half circle next to partially watched tv or movies
2. Different icons for 3g but rather obvious
3. genius has to be done in itunes and is basically synced to phone
4. icons stay where they were (second hand info tho)

woo hoo. lyrics show up in a transparent pane over the album art in the song control screen (the same screen that the genius button is on). or at least they do for NIN - The Slip. comment from engadget. This a new feature or something i missed along the way?

If anyone figures out exactly how this extra text message alerts work... please update us... I know they announced it as a feature but I have yet to find a answer of how... I've let incoming texts sit and no other alerts happen. No way to toggle it on or off in the settings either... hmmm
Heard this elsewhere and can confirm it works.
"the bug where if you deleted or moved an email on the iPhone, and went to MobileMe web, the deleted or moved item was still in the inbox as well as the deleted or other folder is now fixed. When you delete or move an email on the iPhone, the email no longer appears in the Inbox on the MobileMe web version."
Also a major keyboard flaw since the 2.0.1 firmware where when you try to teach the phone to remember a word by hitting X when it would try to change the word you were typing... after hitting X on that word 3 times it should of remembered it. Well this was broken and is now fixed with 2.1.

Personally, I can't see myself needing that extra alert especially as there's plenty of info that comes up on the home screen e.g. part of the message when it first arrives or a box to tell me who the texts are from if I've not unlocked the phone. It's a nice idea though and two is better than the 3 calls I used to get on my old motorola handset when there was a voicemail.
