    The crashing seems to be the main issue. The lack of certain features were already leaked, so people should have looked before buying if they're already visiting tech forums. But I am surprised about the crashes.

    The activation issues are probably more carrier related than Apple related.

    Oh yeah, I did also see the low speakerphone volume in someone's review of their test device.

    Music and videos are blastingly loud, speakerphone not so much. Becuase the music and video audio is loud, I expect a quick FW update to increase the speaker volume. Obviously, it's capable of that level of audio. Not too worried about it, as I mainly use the speakerphone on conference calls while in my home office. I'm not one of those "but I can't hear it in my convertible while driving on the freeway" kind of guys. :shake:

    Well, here i am posting from the phone. It is gonna take some getting used to, esp this darn keyboard. Hasnt corrected or recommended anything yet. I'll give a review tomorrow, just testing the water right now.

    Oh yeah, the volume is garbage...

    iPhone friendly streaming radio?

    does anyone know I'd there are any decent streaming radio stations that are compatible with the iPhone?

    I've tries yahoo and soma and pretty much any others I could find with no luck. I figure soon enough there will be plenty that work but I'd like to find some now

    Any ideas?

    Safari crashing on you? Or is it just me?

    Anyone else experience Safari crashing on them? Screen goes black and you jump to the home screen. Then when you restart safari the session is a few minutes old and you lost your back/forward button list.

    I'm sure this has happened to some of you since it's happened to me 6 times so far today. Why it even happened while I was posting this question.
    Is it random, or just when you're browsing certain sites?

    I haven't experienced this problem.
    I would say this has happened to me at least 15 times since I purchased my iPhone. Usually occurs with 2 or more sites open at once....

    Its happened to me too. A lot. I'm willing to bet there will be an update on he 2nd to fix it.

    I haven't noticed a pattern or rhyme or reason for it to crash yet. But yeah, I usually do have more than one page open at a time.

    Tired fingers crossed for a software update soon!

    I agree. It has happened to me twice today, both times when 2 websites were open simultaneously so i think it had something to do with that. i hope the RAM isnt THAT low. i just hope that it happens to many people so it will be a big enough problem to fix during the first iPhone update.
    Google maps has crashed on me multiple times. Safari has been pretty stable. It seems to be when I am zoomed in pretty tight od doing direction or all of the above at the same time... it will go black and go to the home screen. It is always when I am showing off my phone to an iPhone hater too...how embarassing...! I havent reset it yet. Also, has anyone had any trouble with the unlock slider not sliding? I am having to swipe multiple times sometimes without sucess, especially when calls are coming in...

    From what I've seen, I don't think you can download any attachments that come via email. Which makes no sense. I have to believe they will fix this asap.

    So I am in love with my new iphone, but I have been having problems already! My touch screen is not responding all the time. First happened when I activated the phone around 11am today. I went to maps and then my touchscreen just stopped working. I restored my iphone and it started working again, I figured, great just a glitch in my software.. figured it was fixed, right?

    Wrong. It just stopped responding again. Now am I totally missing something? I hit the wake button and try to slide it over to unlock but nothing happens

    Should I just return it and get a new phone? or is something else the problem??? This is frustrating.. I am restoring my iphone again right now.

    So I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I may have a defective iphone... or maybe someone else has had similar problems?

    Is it possible its cause by a video or song loaded onto my ipod??
    ... update- while restoring my iphone agian it said "Your iphone contains Diagnostic information that could help Apple improve his...blah blah blah"

    Is this a generic message or is my phone just screwed up?

    Any help or comments would be appreciated

    Make sure you are using the pad of your finger, NOT your finger nail, or even the extreme side of your fingers. I was having a similar problem (not as bad) and began using the pad of my finger and now my screen works beautifully... If that doesnt work I would take it in, sounds like it might be a problem with your screen.

    ditto on that ^^^. if you use your nail it won't respond.

    not using my finger nail. I am sure of it. I've used it quite a bit with no problems. Problems just randomly started up. Must be my screen
    My phone was doing the same thing today. I had to hard reset it this morning after it froze. I haven't had to do it again since, but sometimes when i press an icon it won't respond until the 5th try.
    Wow! Iphones need hard resets? must be all those songs people are loading. Malicious songs corrupting the firmware obviously. Those awful song writers!!!

    the longest lasting battery life for a mobile phone
    a phone that can browse nearly any website in normal format

    It's almost like they didn't get any feedback when they designed certain functions.

    Jobs proclaimed the iPhone to be head and shoulders better and smarter than the smartest of the smartphones. That is why he deserves the bashing. He overpromised. He's arrogant. He's far from the truth. Is it great for a first offering? Yes. Is it the smartest or the most advanced? FAR from it. I'll look into rev B or C. At this point even the dumbest of the smartphones is smarter.

    I think that is the truth..I think personally that's what gets me...this phone is not FIVE years ahead of any other (maybe a year ahead due to the GUI, like the Wii). It isn't a dumbphone and it sounds like a GREAT user experience but it is not ahead of anything..it has taken SOME of the best features around and put them on a device with a great GUI (credit to them, plus great marketing).But I think it'll be a lot less than 5 yrs before ppl catch up, patents or no patents!

    Think of what phones were 5 years ago. There is a huge difference. Treos and BB were just in their infancy. Today, those devices have evolved...some slower than others, but still, it's a big difference.

    A phone "5 years ahead" should do everything today, plus "future" items. The iPhone fails in this.

    But it sure is purdy...

    First rule about AppleClub, you never buy a first production Apple product.
    I bought mine as a throw-away. I expect a 3G version soon and plan to buy that one too. (This time I will keep the box.) (Remember, I have made enough on Apple stock to more than cover being early and good.)
