    I've noticed it takes a VERY long time to backup my 16 GB 1st Gen iPhone now. It took about 90 minutes to get about 90% complete, but I fell asleep waiting for it to finish, so I'm not sure how long it took. And then it still needed to update my apps.

    Does anyone know any way to speed up the backup process?
    Mine takes forever too, I think the first one after getting 3.0 yesterday took about 3 hours!! Don't know why it takes so long..

    Yup, I was wondering the same thing today, the more button is gone..
    I personally think it's a good thing they got rid of it.
    I hope they aren't tweaking it and then putting it back.
    It made no sense at all to use up a button space that said "More" just so they can add a redeem option.
    They should just put a little "redeem" button in the top left corner of the "app updates" screen. Just like the "Update All" button.

    Ok, I'm only having one real problem, it's that about half my apps have gone into a black hole, after re-syncing yesterday, itunes showed them being copied to my phone, but they are nowhere to be found! Itunes is showing 5 gigs of apps in green, and I tried installing some of them from the phone in the app store but the button you press that says "free/install", is showing them already "installed".

    Anyone notice this?

    I have also downloaded the 3.0 update. I have noticed a slower phone since I installed it. I think this might be because of the new additions. I have noticed that after a few restarts(5 or so for me) it seems to gain back the speed.

    I am having a problem finding out where iTunes puts the notes that it syncs with my iPhone. I was under the impression that I could edit these notes and have them sync to my phone. Does anyone know where these might be?

    Confirmed, doesnt work for me neither.

    Another bug I think:
    When sending a contact from one iPhone to another using MMS the contact comes as a unknown file on the other phone. Can someone confirm this?
    Yep, I have this issue. Very annoying. Whenever I receive an MMS from someone, it doesn't link the number to a contact properly. The message then shows up as a number (eg; 61 403 999 999) which has to be manually looked up within contacts. The picture obviously doesn't get threaded with other messages from that person.

    I upgraded to 3.0 last night and it seems okay so far aside from a couple issues
    1) When I move into landscape texting, the phone doesnt recognize it and therefore doesnt switch into landscape mode. This only occurs when I am standing. I realized that if I tilt the phone one way or the other when flipping it to the side, it goes into landscape. Was I doing it wrong or do I have a real issue on my hands?
    2) When I click the text bar (the space where your words show up) it brings it up with the keyboard, but when I click it again to make it go away..it doesnt go away.

    Something that isn't a bug, but should be reverted back.
    When texting a long message, the text area keeps expanding and now eventually fills up the whole screen. Now if the other persons text was long, and you were replying to several parts...you now can't read the rest of their text, and have to delete some of yours to do so. There should be a limit to how much the text box can expand(like previous versions). I don't mind scrolling through my own message to read what I've put so far, but I DO need to see the other persons text. It can't block it out completely.

    Just noticed that if you want to see the text you were replying to, but can't cos you've filled up the whole screen, just tap the edit button and you can see all the previous messages. When you're done tap "done" and it will take you back to the text you were writing.

    I think I made a mistake. I went to sync my phone to my computer to upload a new app. for some reason I clicked on the sync calenders with this computer even though I sync over the air with mobile me. don't ask me why, I just did. do'h.
    Now I have two sets of the exact same calender from Ical on my phone. I did a restore and foolishly restored from a backup=no change (didn't want to input all the info by hand) I unregistered my computer from mobile me, then re-registered and it asked if I wanted to merge the data I clicked "merge"= no change. I did a reset settings on the phone- no change. How on earth do I get rid of the double calender Info?

    I think I just found the answer. I went to my mobil me account on my IPhone turned off calenders then turned it back on and it asked if I wanted to merge the data I clicked merge and viola! one set of calenders again

    My phone became sluggish and "glitchy". Some apps (like TwitterFon) would freeze and close and I've noticed that my corrective text isn't working like it did before the update. I rebooted my phone and so far everything seems ok. I also had a problem with syncing with iTunes... I kept getting an "unknown error". I haven't tried again since last night.

    Hey Everyone,

    Updated iphone to OS 3.0 today. Wanted to try out the Tethering with USB but seems it's only compatible with MAC OS X 10.5 and above. Then tried with Bleuthooth, and seem it's only compatible with Bluetooth 2.

    I have a PowerBook G4 1.67Ghz with Tiger OS 10.4.11 installed and Bluetooth 1.9.5f4

    What a joy to have upgraded!!!

    Thanks Apple!!!

    don't you need a particular package with your provider to get tethering to work?
    06-19-2009 08:00 AM

    umm... not sure about that. However prior to my update to OS 3.0 I used to tether under OS 2.2.1 with PdaNet under wifi.

    I'm in Thailand and have unlimited internet package. Never saw that our local provider charged me for that.

    guess I'll have to wait for OS 3.0 jailbreak and then hopefully for PdaNet to be updated... although not sure they will do it as OS 3.0 now officially supports tethering!!!

    Great Job Apple! I'm going to end up selling the iphone and get a BB.

    My 16Gb i Phone took 54 secs to load the app store at one point. although i suspect this may have been when they were updating it to remove the more button.

    Some apps seem to justr crash out and wont open again until a restart. Some takes ages to load up to start with.

    The messages is really annoying now like IvoryPlum said you cant read you previous messages once you write a certain amount it takes over the whole screen. i know callum has said you can click the edit button and see them, i worked this out for my self by mistake as i was trying to see if i could scroll a millimeter gap so i could read a little bit of the previous txts and accidently clicked edit. but this is annoying and surely not how it is meant to be otherwise surely we would have been told somewhere about this. (unless its some kind of punishment for demanding landscape layout keyboards!!)


    I have had not connection to my phone network and have had to turn the phone of and then back on again and then it seems to pick it up. otherwise it will keep saying searching in the top left hand corner.

    but my worse and most annoying problem is YouTube i keep getting messages either saying "video cannot be loaded" or a new one that says "syndication of this video was restricted by its owner". i know the videos still exsist and still work as i have watched them on my computer.

    Has anyone else had this or similar problems with YouTube and is there a method in which i can fix this?

    so on the whole not too impressed with the speed and a few issues but there are a few things that seem to work well like the search feature and cut copy and paste!

    I have to admit. After the whole double calender thing, because I did a restore. The phone is working much smoother seems a gazillion times more stable!

    The biggest thing I noticed is that the range from which the iPhone can pick up my home wifi signal is GREATLY reduced. Before updating, I could get wifi in the whole house.

    Now, I can only get the wifi signal in half the house. I have to keep walking into specific rooms near to the router to get a signal. Nothing has changed with my laptops, they can still get the signal throughout the house. It only started on the iphone when I updated to 3.0.

    I was also getting the problem where it kept prompting me to reconnect to the home wifi network. But that since has cleared up I think.

    Hope they fix this. I hate using the 3G network at home for browsing on the phone.
