    I have not run into any major bugs honestly, MMS - can't blame Apple for that one, can't vouch for the iPod Touch as I don't have one.

    hm well there are a lot of bugs. My phone won't switch to landscape sometimes when I'm in Messages. It takes longer for the iPhone to power down. I experience lag times and much more.

    Try restoring to a new iPhone... if that doesn't work make a appointment at your local Apple store.

    Or check out the following thread: http://forum.theiphoneblog.com/iphon...gs-issues.html

    Maybe others have the same issues that you do.

    Lack of MMS is not a bug, otherwise everyone else in the world who isn't on ATT Wireless would have the same bug.

    I didn't say MMS was a bug lol. I was naming bugs and failures of 3.0

    It's not a failure either. The failure is on ATT for sleeping at the wheel. The bug here is ATTs CEO.

    If you can live with the bugs then why bother complaining about them?
    As for me I didn't experience any bugs on my 3G and I don't have any bugs on my 3GS either.

    hm did you set up your iPhone as a new one? If you did then you won't have any problems with 3.0.

    You mentioned Jailbreaking, has this been done.. The reason I ask is this could cause a few of your bugs...

    My Nephew has a Touch and after upgrading to 3.0 says it runs much faster.

    Everything about 3.0 is better (much much much better) in my opinion. Except for WiFi. WiFi is very flaky on 3.0 on some routers (some are just fine.)

    Apple does make me laugh too, but not for 3.0. Yeah it has bugs, but show me a company that releases a smartphone ROM update without some annoying bugs. IMO all except the WiFi bug has minimal impact.
    Palm Treo series is a great example. Every release had forum threads full of bug reports of never ending complaints. HTC, another major smart phone player has regression bugs. I can't speak for Moto or Nokia.

    I too restored from a backup since I was a little lazy and wanted to have my settings beamed down and I havent had any problems with 3.0.

    it seems very similar to PC's when they get new versions of Windows. when an older PC 'upgrades' to a newer version of Windows. take Vista for example <shivers>. when i 'upgraded' my HP laptop from XP to Vista, it has really bogged down. and going from Windows 2000 to XP was the same thing. each OS includes so many new 'features' that the older hardware gets overworked. this may be what's happening with 3.0 on older iPhones & iPod Touch(s).

    I agree definitely with your explanation. Legacy hardware will slow till the point where it cannot be adopted anymore.
    No offense but this is a compliant topic to non issue topic

    I upgraded my first generation iPhone to 3.0 from a back up and it ran much faster and smoother. Then I got the 3gs and 3.0 has had no bugs for me. I can't give an explantion as to why your having problems but I can tell you that it is not because Apple has left the older phones behind.

    You mean as opposed to never switching to landscape before?

    How, may I ask, is MMS crap? I've had MMS working for months and I find it, hands down, the best picture messaging experience I've had on any phone to date!
