I hope they aren't tweaking it and then putting it back.
It made no sense at all to use up a button space that said "More" just so they can add a redeem option.
They should just put a little "redeem" button in the top left corner of the "app updates" screen. Just like the "Update All" button.

Ok, I'm only having one real problem, it's that about half my apps have gone into a black hole, after re-syncing yesterday, itunes showed them being copied to my phone, but they are nowhere to be found! Itunes is showing 5 gigs of apps in green, and I tried installing some of them from the phone in the app store but the button you press that says "free/install", is showing them already "installed".
Anyone notice this?

I upgraded to 3.0 last night and it seems okay so far aside from a couple issues…
1) When I move into landscape texting, the phone doesn’t recognize it and therefore doesn’t switch into landscape mode. This only occurs when I am standing. I realized that if I tilt the phone one way or the other when flipping it to the side, it goes into landscape. Was I doing it wrong or do I have a real issue on my hands?
2) When I click the text bar (the space where your words show up) it brings it up with the keyboard, but when I click it again to make it go away..it doesn’t go away.

Something that isn't a bug, but should be reverted back.
When texting a long message, the text area keeps expanding and now eventually fills up the whole screen. Now if the other persons text was long, and you were replying to several parts...you now can't read the rest of their text, and have to delete some of yours to do so. There should be a limit to how much the text box can expand(like previous versions). I don't mind scrolling through my own message to read what I've put so far, but I DO need to see the other persons text. It can't block it out completely.

I think I made a mistake. I went to sync my phone to my computer to upload a new app. for some reason I clicked on the sync calenders with this computer even though I sync over the air with mobile me. don't ask me why, I just did. do'h.
Now I have two sets of the exact same calender from Ical on my phone. I did a restore and foolishly restored from a backup=no change (didn't want to input all the info by hand) I unregistered my computer from mobile me, then re-registered and it asked if I wanted to merge the data I clicked "merge"= no change. I did a reset settings on the phone- no change. How on earth do I get rid of the double calender Info?

My phone became sluggish and "glitchy". Some apps (like TwitterFon) would freeze and close and I've noticed that my corrective text isn't working like it did before the update. I rebooted my phone and so far everything seems ok. I also had a problem with syncing with iTunes... I kept getting an "unknown error". I haven't tried again since last night.

OS 3 Tethering not possible with MAC OS X 10.4.11 and below
Updated iphone to OS 3.0 today. Wanted to try out the Tethering with USB but seems it's only compatible with MAC OS X 10.5 and above. Then tried with Bleuthooth, and seem it's only compatible with Bluetooth 2.
I have a PowerBook G4 1.67Ghz with Tiger OS 10.4.11 installed and Bluetooth 1.9.5f4
What a joy to have upgraded!!!

My 16Gb i Phone took 54 secs to load the app store at one point. although i suspect this may have been when they were updating it to remove the more button.
Some apps seem to justr crash out and wont open again until a restart. Some takes ages to load up to start with.
The messages is really annoying now like IvoryPlum said you cant read you previous messages once you write a certain amount it takes over the whole screen. i know callum has said you can click the edit button and see them, i worked this out for my self by mistake as i was trying to see if i could scroll a millimeter gap so i could read a little bit of the previous txts and accidently clicked edit. but this is annoying and surely not how it is meant to be otherwise surely we would have been told somewhere about this. (unless its some kind of punishment for demanding landscape layout keyboards!!)
I have had not connection to my phone network and have had to turn the phone of and then back on again and then it seems to pick it up. otherwise it will keep saying searching in the top left hand corner.
but my worse and most annoying problem is YouTube i keep getting messages either saying "video cannot be loaded" or a new one that says "syndication of this video was restricted by its owner". i know the videos still exsist and still work as i have watched them on my computer.
Has anyone else had this or similar problems with YouTube and is there a method in which i can fix this?
so on the whole not too impressed with the speed and a few issues but there are a few things that seem to work well like the search feature and cut copy and paste!

WiFi range in house significantly reduced in 3.0
The biggest thing I noticed is that the range from which the iPhone can pick up my home wifi signal is GREATLY reduced. Before updating, I could get wifi in the whole house.
Now, I can only get the wifi signal in half the house. I have to keep walking into specific rooms near to the router to get a signal. Nothing has changed with my laptops, they can still get the signal throughout the house. It only started on the iphone when I updated to 3.0.
I was also getting the problem where it kept prompting me to reconnect to the home wifi network. But that since has cleared up I think.
Hope they fix this. I hate using the 3G network at home for browsing on the phone.
