    Sync again with iTunes... it should show up. At first it did not show up for me either. Another sync and it showed.

    I can only connect via 3G, my Wifi is connecting to my router, but 3G is displayed and I can't download from the App Store because it is telling me the app is >10mb and I need a Wifi connection.

    Try hitting "forget this network" button and add your WiFi connection again.

    Update installed with no problems.

    Did not perform an auto backup like the 2.0.2 did.?.?.

    And.... Wow. All I can say is WoW!

    My backups went from an hour and a half to now just 15 seconds!!!!!

    Wow........

    hmm, genius playlist shows up on iphone, but it tells me i need to enable it in itunes first, which i've already done.

    does it not work if i'm manually managing my music?

    Update went fairly well, just a slight glitch with the initial backup. Updating firmware took what seemed like ages, maybe about 10mins.

    iPhone2.1 now updated, and most seems good (preferred the previous 3G and Edge symbols, but minor quibble).

    However, PUSH is NOT working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Pushing from from MobileMe not sending to Phone, but works ok manually checking for mail.

    You just answered your own question...

    You can not manually manage your music.

    Try taking away your MobileMe account and then adding it back. Worked for me. But it does not seem as stable. Seems more like a issue with MobileMe.

    How have they gone about achieving this feat? Must be disabling features? Anyone know specifics?

    Had a thought, Uncle Steve did say that 2.1 would deliver better battery life, now I know how they did it, by screwing the Push, therefore no checking for mail makes for better battery life !!!

    I might take that back, a message just popped into my iPhone, but is it a dealyed test message or a new one that arrived in my in-box ? Itching to see but leaving phone alone to see if SMS 2nd alert is a myth or not.

    Ok, Push appears to be working now :o
    But SMS 2nd alert didn't happen after a 20 minute wait.

    i was really hopeing to at least be able to have the luxry to have a forward feature in the SMS application...It jus seems like basic funtions are left out...dont get me wrong i like the updates but basic funtions that say a 1 generation Nokia can do (i kno yall remember those) seems like common sense...

    The first generation Nokia doesn't have threaded messaging like the iPhone.

    So far I've downloaded the upgrade but the initial backup is taking forever! Probably won't be done in a couple of hours.
