I had no problems with the OS 4.0 download/update on my 3GS. I was also Jailbroken on OS 3.1.3 and did NOT bother to do anything with that. Everything was RESTORED, i.e. all email accounts, Notes, photos, videos, and every last setting.
I like the fact that there is a character count for texting that you can turn on now.
Hope that helps someone jailbroken and on the fence as to whether or not they should upgrade.

I wonder if the gmail issues are possibly unrelated to iOS4. I am running 3.1.3 on a 3gs and I am having gmail exchange issues where it is not showing all emails that are in the inbox, as well as not moving deleted messages to the trash.
I plan to update later tonight.

Just installed iOS 4 and my Yahoo calendar didn't sync appointments using CalDav properly, however in the calendar settings if you change the 'Sync' setting from 'All Events' to 'Events 6 Months Back', it works fine, but stops again if you change it back to 'All Events'.

Ugh - "could not update: error 037"
Okay, so I was so excited getting home from work today so immediately plugged in to update.
But I got about 10 minutes into the iPhone update and received the error message "iPhone could not be upgraded. an unknown error occurred (37)". Then I received the message that the iPhone was in recovery mode, and had to be restored before updating. I've now tried that 3 times and am getting "iPhone could not be recovered. an unknown error occurred (37)".

Took nearly 3 hours to complete my 16GB 3G update, but everything seems to be working fine now that it's done. My advice is to be patient. Took about 15 minutes for the download, then 1 hr 20 mins for the backup (progress bar only showed 1/8 complete for nearly the entire time); 15-20 mins to install iOS4, then the remaining time to restore all of my apps, music files, etc. The only issue that I know of is that my icons were re-arranged, so I had to move them back into position. All else is working fine, so far.

heres my story. so today they released iOS4 (obviously) but ive had the GM seed for a while as im a dev. Ever since ive had the GM my mail for mobile me has been getting stuck in the cloud. my phone will ding and show a badge for new mail, but it wont push down from the cloud. also, after reading mail it still shows up as an unread message about 30 percent of the time. sooooo...heres what i did.
i called apple and tried to get some help. usually when calling apple, the people are very nice and try to help you any way they can. Well this guy was a complete tool. he has no desire to listen to what i was saying. apparently the day they release a new OS they dont want to hear about the bugs it has. this made me angry. they wanted to charge me 30$ for troubleshooting help. i told him to go **** himself.
thats my story, have any of you had problems like this?
ive got a 16gig iPhone 3GS.
(iPhone 4 on thursday. woot!)

I have a 3rd Gen 8 GB touch. When I first downloaded iOS 4, it was super slow on my iPod. The slide to unlock slider took 15 seconds to unlock the iPod. Scrolling through the home screen took forever. It wouldn't even let me make folders in less than 30 seconds. But then, it started getting loads faster. Now it's even faster than it was before the update. However, when the iPod is locked, the screen no longer lights up for me to slide to unlock unless I press the home button. Pressing the power button no longer works for that function. I don't know if that's intended or not, but it kind of makes me mad. After almost a year of pressing the power button, I'll press it up to three times before remembering that the new OS no longer allows me to do that, and then I'll have to press the home button. But iBooks is kind of laggy.

Multitasking taking a dump
Couldn't load one of my games to play (High Noon). I then noticed that every other app that i loaded so far since the update is in the multitasking bar! This bogged down my phone tremendously.
When I finally figured out how to shut those apps down in the multitasking bar High Noon loaded up right away.
Seems like a very buggy OS, not like apple's usual work. Any suggestions? Is everything supposed to be optimized for iPhone 4 and it's A4 chip?

iTouch 3rd Gen 32gb
Okay - ran the update for my daughters iTouch.
Took about 25 minutes to go through everything then I get "an unknown error has occured (-18)".
So unhooked, rehooked, redid the update and so far all looks good.
It took 15 minutes this time. I'll post any bugs she runs across.

I was able to sync my 3GS with very little issue, my husband has tried numerous times to sync his 3G and it won't do anything. He isn't very patient, so we may try again this evening. Or he may just wait until he gets his iPhone 4 to mess with the new os.
