3.0 installed...not really impressed
Grabbed the GM of OS 3.0 earlier today and installed it about an hour ago, and I have to say I'm not really impressed. Granted your experience may be different, but with how I use my iPhone I don't see 3.0 being that great.
Again, your mileage may vary. To each his own. Just FYI..

Can anyone with 3.0 already installed verify whether this 11 pages of Home Screens rumor is true? I am one of those who maxes out all 9 and is looking forward to more App space:
(It wouldn't allow me to post the link since I don't have 10 posts yet but thats the link above minus the w w w)
Thank you and please refrain from the "Why do you have so many pages?" questions.... I just do

Ah, you got my hopes up. I thought I was getting a quick response. I'll just have to check back in a couple hours hopefully there's someone who can test it for me.
Even if you don't have the pages filled if you have the 3.0 can u just put one app on each screen to see if it goes to 11. I would really appreciate it.

I upgrade a phone at work to the 3.0 and was wondering if anyone who got an early release of 3.0 can explain the push notification. I can't find it any where in the settings. I didn't know if I had to wait until apps updated to support 3.0 or not

There are several killer features for me.
(1) Copy/Paste- I rarely use it, but when you need it, you need it.
(2) Landscape app support
(3) Search, esp. the continue search on server email support that works in Gmail and Exchange 2007- that's huge for me.
(4) Subscription calendars
and hey, I might finally get myself some BT headphones.

iPhone 3.0 is a good update
For those who are complaining that 3.0 does not have all the features they want, not a major upgrade etc. I think Apple are doing a good job at getting these updates out, think about the features the original iPhone didn't have and all the changes from then till now. Don't forget that even the first iPhone can be updated all the way to 3.0 for free (even though some features are missing).
Before the iPhone I had a WinMo phone which had plenty of features, but a lot of the time it was buggy and everything didn't work that well. With Apple you can be sure that all features that they include will work perfectly and really elegantly. You couldn't even get official updates for WinMo, unless you got cooked (unofficial) ROMs. You were just expected to put up with the same OS and bugs for the whole time you had the phone.
I think 3.0 is good and I can wait for updates because I know they will be implemented right.
Looking forward to official 3.0 and push notifications!

I have a question to those of you who upgraded to OS 3.0 already. Can you assign to different sounds (other than default OS sounds) to New Text Message, New Mail or Voicemail? My old Razr could assign any sound to those functions. thanks.

Look folks... as I said... to each his own and your mileage may vary. For me, I'm just not that impressed and probably could have stayed with 2.2.1. Here's my reasoning....yours of course will be different:
Landscape keyboard - don't really care. not a deal breaker for me.
MMS - don't care. don't use it. sending email is fine for me.
Spotlight search - I can take it or leave it. Probably won't use it.
Voice memos - don't care. won't use it.
Buy movies etc... don't care. won't use it.
Tethering - a welcome addition, but will not pay wireless provider extra for it.
Stereo bluetooth - Won't use it.
Syncing of Exchange tasks and Notes - still missing
Unified Inbox - still missing
Cut/Copy/Paste - nice to have. A welcome addition

not really to thrilled, the only things i was interested in were video recording and some form of multitasking/background processes. i don't even have a txt plan so don't care about mms, i realize its important to a lot of people though, I am just not one of them. what i would like to know though, they say "100 new features" OK how are we supposed to use/check out/take advantage of these features if we are not allowed to know what thy are ! does that make any sense ?
