The first thing I did was the"find my phone" feature and it worked perfectly.
The push notification for mail has moved into the mail, contacts & calender screen of settings. If the email client does not support push your only option is to fetch
my phone moves snappier too. As a matter of fact I have noticed that some of the animation has just stopped and the screen just appears out of nowhere. Knida disconcerting.
I also do not believe that verizon is getting an IPhone. And if it did perhaps it would only get the 3G. Is there a loophole with AT&T's exclusivity deal?

Only thing I've noticed that I don;t like is I've been trying to sync my phone all day to get my music and apps back, but the backup itunes does first is taking forever, I ran it for 3 hours earlier and had to quite so I could use my phone, and it was only at about 30% after that!!
Anyone else notice this?

So I'm a sim swapper. Didn't seem to be a big deal until now. I have an AT&T data plan for my BB and swap to sim to my iPhone for more fun on the late nights and weekends. Aparently AT&T is happy about it after the new 3.0 upgrade. I'm getting notification That my data can't be enabled because I don't have an iPhone data plan. Funny thing is they were the ones that told me it would work. Now I've got to call in and see if I can get them to turn the iPhone data on using by BB plan. I don't think the BB will work on the BES without the BB data plan. Can I jailbreak to over come this if I have to? It's not like I'm ripping AT&T both phones have the same data price and I can only use 1 at a time.

In order to get the push York on all email systems you would have to have a central server running the show. That is blackberries greatest strength and it's greatest weakness. I think at the moment you'll just have to fetch or get an email service that pushes. Mobile me works great and comes with a whole host of extras: over the air syncing, find my phone and data storage. Even an online photo page and many more.

I have enabled push notifications for the two apps I have installed that support it (Tap Tap 2 and AP Mobile), but have not received a single notification yet. Is the service (or these apps) not yet active, or have others received notifications already, which might suggest something wrong with my setup?
Edit: Set up textfree lite, and received notifications from it. Perhaps AP Mobile is not yet sending updates, or only in certain categories to which I have not subscribed...

Field test mode Survived update to 3.0
Previously I had gone into field test mode to allow me to
toggle between Signal strength Bars and Decibel readings to judge signal strength.
Oddly enough this setting remained intact after upgrading to 3.0.
I would have expected to lose that.
Field test mode is entered by keying: *3001#12345#* then tap Call.
Lots of geeky stuff in there, none of which will hurt the phone. (not that
i recommend changing anything).
While in FTM you can toggle between bars and decibels by touching the bars up by the carrier label. When you exit field test mode by the home button it returns to normal.
But if you exit FTM and SLEEP the phone with the top button, you will retain the ability to switch back and forth between numbers and bars. (To undo this enter FTM again and press home).
I leave mine permanently with the option to switch back and forth enabled, because bars don't tell the truth. Numbers are much more accurate than bars. (Lower numbers are better).
