    Well, I just updated my 3G with the latest update and I noticed that I don't have some of the settings under the settings menu. I called Apple and they told me that the 3GS will have some minor differences over the 3G.

    Here's what I don't have that the "iPhone 3.0 Software Walkthrough" article shows:

    - Push Notifications: it says that there is a "top level" button to toggle it on/off. The screen shot shows the "buttons" in this order:
    -Airplane Mode
    -WiFi
    -Carrier
    -Notifications
    ( I don't have the carrier or notifications options)

    -General Settings: Network
    -No button for internet tethering.

    -Safari:
    -No option for Security: "fraud warning"

    -Messages:

    -No toggle for MMS settings


    So far this is all that I noticed. Hopefully somebody has some insight for me on this subject. Who knows, maybe there will be another update when the tethering and MMS is enabled.

    MMS & tethering options won't show up until they are offered by AT&T. As for push you have to have updated apps that allow push notifications.

    I don't have the "fraud warning" either. Don't know what's up with that.

    I assume you are on AT&T. AT&T has not enabled MMS or Tethering yet. It will be available later this summer. http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2009/06...mms-tethering/

    That's a good question. I've heard it might only be on the 3GS. If I find something out I'll let ya know.

    Was it under the settings menu? Or did it just "show up" on the home screen?

    Well, I just found that by pressing the "home button" once (while on HS page #1), dumps you into spotlight...that's pretty cool. That way you don't hafta swipe.

    I think carrier settings is only for countries with more than one GSM iPhone carrier. Canada has Rogers and their subsidiary, Fido.

    I'm not really sure why,but that really bugs me. I didn't realize I pressed the home button so much until I updated.Haha
