There is a big 4.2.1 WiFi issue for some people getting no media attention.
The 4.2 release was delayed by wifi issues. For some users there us a big wifi issue after installing. If you have the problem you experience one or both of the following:
slow internet (thought to be dns related) slow email and browsing and videos that time out
wifi that hangs 5 minutes of no internet activity. Turning airplane mode on and off brings it back until the next time you sleep your screen. This is related a combo of the following: your router and settings, amount of interference, strength of signal, the iPad hardware itself and how sensitive to signal strength.
Rolling back to 3.2.2 fixes it entirely. To see how big the problem is you can do a quick search if rpthe apple forums. Thevgood news is that apple has engaged some users and collected info about their setup. So hopefully a fix is in the works.
The bad news is that no one is writing about the issue that is effecting a lot of people. This would help to getva fix faster. The other badcthingbis that apples support staff are not aware of the issue. And worse posts in the apple forum to show people how to downgrade temporarily are being removed as are some posts asking people to elevate the issue with the press.
Imagine the headlines: Apple releases update with some users having big wifi issues Or Apple not acknkowledging big flaw in latest iPad update removes posts telling people how to downgrade to be able to use their broken devices
Ok Iím not a writer but you get the point.

Cannot find server
Since the update, Safari will frequently post an error that it 'cannot locate the server'. This occurs even when I'm on a particular website and just pressing the 'back' button. The only way I can clear the error is to open Settings and clear the cache, cookies and history. It doesn't happen on every site, but is annoying just the same. Anyone experiencing this?

I've noticed two bugs:
1) The keyboard doesn't disappear from the main text message list screen (i.e., the screen where all your texts to different people are listed). Annoying.
2) I don't know if this happens with any other app, but if I have "What's App" app installed, and try to save an attached video, rather than say "Save Video" like it normally would, it only gives you the option to "Open in What's App" which is ridiculously annoying, because that does nothing other than open the app. The only way you can save the video attachment is to delete the "What's App" app, save the video, and then reinstall the app. Stooooopid!

I've noticed a bug with SMS messages. It goes something like this:
Receive a text from Person A. You DON'T slide to view.
Receive a text from Person B. You DO slide to view.
iPhone opens up Messages and shows the message from Person A instead of Person B.
Anyone else noticing this?

^^^ Noticed same issue! I actually replied to the wrong person yesterday and got back a "Huh?" response because of this. Have never noticed it before the recent update.
I've also noticed a few iPod bugs...the album art is one of them, with the same symptoms as mentioned above. I've also noticed that my podcasts run a portion of the show and then it goes on to the next show for some reason. I've had it happen about 5 times, but it's never a consistent time or anything.
My proximity sensor seems to be back at the ****ty performance i experiencing before...very frustrating.

Previously, I would be able to start a video, go to the home screen, turn off the iphone using the sleep/wake button on top, turn on the phone, click the home button twice. This used to give me the video controls which if I pressed play would play the sound of the video and I would be free to use the other apps. However, after the upgrade when I click the play button on the home screen it immediately turns to the pause button and then back to the play button and won't play the video anymore.

I find 4.2 to be sluggish in general. I've never had the iPhone lock up until after this upgrade. Apps at time stall in the middle of downloading. I only download on via a very "fat" internet connection at home. App switching is slower and sometimes I end up hitting icons twice as I dont feel it launched. Seems like the memory management tweaks came at the expense of speed and fluidity.

4.2 upgrade drains battery
I have been having a terrible problem since upgrading to 4.2 a couple of weeks ago. At least I think its a 4.2 upgrade issue. Until then, battery life seemed ok. After it now drains at a 9-11% per hour rate on standby. This is with notifications off, location services off, bluetooth off, no chat apps running, nothing. Before the issue started a couple of weeks ago I used to leave all of these things (but chat apps) on and all was fine. Now even with these things off it drains like a siv. My phone literally won't last all day on standby, much less if I'm using it.
If its not the 4.2 upgrade then its a funny coincidence. Here is one other odd detail. If I shut wifi off for a while and turn it on, sometimes this fixes it - it drains at a more normal 1% per hour on standby. However, it is only temporary and it soon starts draining again. So it seems wifi, data related.
I suppose its possible some app that has updated also since then is the culprit, but how do you tell? I have gone to the multi-task switcher and closed everything, it still drains?
The fact that sometimes I can temporarily fix the issue if I shut off and then turn back on wifi would indicate the battery is not physically defective, but a software issue.
I have looked at a few others iPhone forums and for sure some small minority of other users are also seeing this behavior, but most aren't. So I can't get any official acknowledgement of this issues existence. But at the end of the day with all the mentioned services shut off it still drains at 10% per hour not being touched on standby. As such my iphone is a paper weight, and not much more. Any thoughts before I sell my junky paper weight that used to be a cool device?

re: 4.2 upgrade drains battery
An update on this issue. After scanning the apple forums it seems a significant minority of people have battery drain issues after doing upgrades, not specific to 4.2. There are many tricks people post as to how to get around the issue, the most drastic of which is to factory reset your phone and try to reload everything. For me I found the issue was PUSH mail delivery. If I disable it, all is well, if I enable it I drain 10-15% per hour on standby. For now I have disabled it, and will try to delete and re-add my email accounts in hopes it will resolve it so I can put push mail back on. Kinda sucks that I just can't use that as an option after an upgrade.

I recently installed iOS 4.2.1. After restoring, the ringer would randomly turn on and off - without my control. Besides it being annoying (a constant random vibration), I'm pretty sure excessive vibrating can't be good for the phone. I then restored from an .ipsw from different sources, but 4.2.1 never worked. I think it might be the firmware, because my iPhone 3g never did this on 3.1.3. Any help?

I've tried several times to update my daughter's iTouch to the new 4.2 software and keep getting a Network Connection Timed Out message. What's up with this?

wow gold is the standard form of currency in World of Warcraft. It can be accumulated in-game by dedicated players, or purchased outside the game system through merchants. Wow player characters can acquire various items in the game, either by game events or by purchasing wow gold. Items can vary from resources such as herbs or raw ores to items to be retrieved for quests. Player characters can also equip different weapons and armor, either to customize their character or improve abilities such as better attacks or defense skills.
There is only one way to get wow gold in game, which is to keep killing monsters again and again. Obviously it is not easy and very boring, so searching a good website and buy cheap wow gold and items on sale is a good choice.
