    Anyone have a problem running netflix over 3g? Mine will not play without stuttering and buffering every 5-10 seconds. Then I need to wait 5-10 seconds to watch another section. Really annoying.
    Am i missing something.

    Im running Iphone 4 4.0.2 and have 8.4 gigs of storage left. (not jail broke).

    I'm having the same issue on my iPhone 4, but not on my iPad. They are both right next to each other and have a 3G signal. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I wonder if changing the scrub rate will have any effect on this problem.

    I don't think you can change that on the iphone can you? I would like to get this resolved as I have been trying to watch Black Hawk Down for 3 days now.

    If you tap the status bar (the time bar at the top, whatever it's called) and drag your finger down it will show scrub rate reducing. I just tried it and when I reduced it down to Quarter Scrub Rate, the movie I was watching came through just fine with no buffering at all.

    That just allows you to search faster or slower. If you pull down to quarter scrub then you search by seconds instead of minutes.

    I didn't realize that. For some reason the movie worked just fine after doing that, but didn't right before I did that. I guess it's just pure coincidence then.

    I have a similar issue, but it seems to happen over wifi more than 3G, despite my wifi signal and speeds being better. Odd.

    I wonder if it's the movie Blackhawk Down, I just watched Boondock Saints and had little to know problem with it stuttering. Went back to Blackhawk Down and it was stuttering just like before.

    Damned good point. You wouldn't think that would be an issue, but you never know.
