    I didn't notice anything new, however if Safari is has added stability, thats a huge plus.

    I realized I hardly use the Camera, so I would never notice an issue with the camera roll, but Safari is my lifeline. I use mobile Safari everyday. I love it.

    Here's the screen shot. I'm usually good at figuring these things out but nothings adding up at the moment.

    No clue what that icon is, however, moving settings to the bottom is a GREAT idea if you are manually switching 3G off or turning the GPS off. I personally leave the GPS off and manually turn it on before entering maps, in hopes that MIGHT help battery. I heard leaving bluetooth on is a battery killer also. At home and work my iPhone is always on wifi, and I'm on 3G the rest of the time. In fact, its been ages since I have even seen the EDGE "E"

    I personally left the home screen the default way, but SMS and settings are the top 2 buttons I wish I could fit on that bottom row. Oh well.

    Looks like the TTY phone icon?

    Your seeing the "E" because I have the iPhone not the iPhone 3G. So moving the Setting to the bottom had nothing to do with 3G. It just made more sense to me. Settings in a consistent and instantly accessible place for Bluetooth which I only use when I drive or when anything needs to be changed.

    Bingo, right on the money jamesus. I didn't even check that setting to see what would happen. Must have turned it on and didn't even realize it.

    Whether it be better WiFi management, Bluetooth management, GPS management, or 3G management, moving Settings to the bottom is a wonderful idea. Thanks for the idea.

    Yes it is. I am always in there and after awhile I really got tired of having to go back to the first page just to change a setting. This way is just so much easier and logical if you ask me.

    Have noticed safari is a lot peppier, and loads pages much faster.
    Also when changing the orientation of the page (horizontal,vertical) it has less hesitation and it also tansitions MUCH faster.

    Is it just me, or did the "mark as unread" button pop up out of no where? I never noticed that button there before when I was reading e-mails, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't there, just that I noticed it yesterday for the first time ever.

    Actually, it is VERY noticeable and hard to miss, so I'll be a little embarrassed if I hadn't seen it this whole time.

    EDIT: NEVERMIND. I didn't realize I hit the details button yesterday, and now that button is there until I hit HIDE.

    Oh well. I have noticed Safari is working quicker, and with less freezes or instances where it just quits out to homescreen.

    Still wish for push notification though. IM is next to useless.

    Oooooh... I just noticed a little but neat new feature...I know it wasn't there all along, but I'm not sure if it came with this update or not...if it was there before, it's new to me: I can finally send an SMS message to multiple people at the same time! I'm a little bit excited!

    I've noticed safari is infinately faster. I've also noticed YouTube desktop version and google video now displays flash videos properly. I was using imobilecinema plugin before, but 2.2.1 seems to display a lot more flash videos properly? Has anone else noticed this?

    Safari seems to demand less memory and it takes a lot more to crash. For jailbreaking I would only use pwnage tool quickpwn doesn't run as smooth and for some reason you have less available ram.

    I did not need to jailbreak for the last update (2.2). My phone had been jailbroken for older version using pwnage.

    But with version 2.2 i did not use pwnage, just did normal update through itunes.

    Does naybody has an idea if this works with 2.2.1 as well or shall i use pwnage to install update?
