    I got my phone replaced today and the first thing i thought about was reorganizing my applications. I synced my phone from recent back up and it actually took me a minute to realize that everything was back in place. Usually when I restore from back up , I'm 90% sure that the apps are not back in their previous spot with OS 2.x

    I just wanted to post this to see if anyone has noticed the same thing. If restoring from back up Already restores the apps back into their original spots , sorry about this post.

    Something a little interesting : I technically got my phone replaced TWICE today. The orginal replacement was broken as well. It kept bringing up the " slide to shut down " screen when ever I would open the phone. Then the phone I'm using now is fine ( for now ).

    You're right. I did a wipe and restore and it did the same for me. I think that makes things alot easier.

    This is rad.
    Such a pain when they would be all scattered after restoring from a back up.

    I agree. I was first pissed when I jailbroke my phone because I realized that all my apps were still there but that they were all out of place. I dreaded having to restore my phone. My 3gs wasn't like this. The 3.0 must have fixed this and it now keeps the apps in the same position. I love this.

    I also noticed. I just my 3G replaced and restored from backup. After the restore only the default apps and safari links where there but they were spread over the pages I had them on. After a sync then all apps were right back where I had them.

    I noticed too. I restored my phone and saw that only the default apps were there. I was a little mad until I synced my apps and they were all in the right order. I'm glad 3.0 does that.

    It also remembers the order of your apps if you turned on parental controls then turned them back off. I always let a little boy at work play games and what not with my iPod Touch and would hate that when I turned off YouTube, Safari, and other apps I would have to put them back in place, now when I turn the parental controls off they just pop back into place. Love it!

    Not only that but I noticed that it also remembers information from those apps.
    For example , I have Rolando 2 and I can just start playing it like i never restored the phone.

    I feel like just about everything in 3.0 is how the original iPhone should be like. That's why I don't even notice these things until I remember how annoying it was to start over in other games.
