Is the 2.2 Firmware a Success?
Simple question, do you think the 2.2 firmware is a success? Now I know what some of you will say... "I want MMS and Copy and Paste!". I know that already, so lets put that stuff aside. Are you happy with the stability and improvements in the 2.2 firmware? I'm happy for the stability improvements alone! How about you?

I vote it a success. The stability, the speed, and the battery life management make it worth it for me. That's not even including the Google Maps Street View and Transit/Walking directions features!

Crashed 4 times last night
I was happy with the new features - but last night while I was out and about, shopping,etc., the phone crashed 4 times in succession. By crash, I mean it went to the apple logo screen, and rebooted. At one point, it even gave me the screen that tells me to plug into iTunes, as if it had never been activated. I don't know if that was a 2.2 stability issue, but it freaked me out!
For the last two posters, I'd say those are not issues with the firmware itself so don't be so quick to blame the firmware. Sounds like bad installs or just another issue you may be having totally unrelated to the firmware.

The Podcast downloads is nice, but why limit the size you can download of the cell network or a way to subcribe to them so they automatically download?? I think this may have been a carrier imposed item to limit the stress on the networks.
Better quality voicemail?? Voicemail quality is not a important to me... as long as I can understand the person that is all I need. It is not like I am listening to music via voice mail.

It seems to me that the focus of this update was pure stability and minor usability tweaks (podcast downloads, search box, etc). I'm sure Apple didn't have as much to do with street view as google did, it probably wasn't hard getting that one in there on Apple's part. When you consider how fast this update came out compared to past updates it makes sense that this was mostly just a bug fix. Stability needed to be improved before some of the new features came out. Can you imagine the push service coming out with all the crashing the apps have been doing?
The app store looks great now too, btw. It came out just late enough to weed out the frustrated crapp-to-make-quick-buck developers who couldn't keep their apps in the top 50. Even the top 50 in each category are pretty decent now, can you imagine the amount of crapps we'd have if they always had that feature?
