My gen 1 was 1.1.4 j/b att and I had it loaded with apps. It never gave me any problems.
I multi-tasked and it was very responsive.

Now I also have a 3g and it freezes about 30 times a day.
I have restored and left it with no apps and it still freezes.
It usually happens when texting but sometimes while surfing the web.

I just am really let down with this phone.

Sometimes my phone rings and nothing I do can answer. I just hope they leave a voicemail so I can return the calls.

Do I have a dud or am I just a vistim of Apple rushing bad technology?

BTW The ATT guy at store said he never has heard of a freezing issue.

If you have an Apple Store in the area, I would take it back. There have been problems with 2.0, but this is the most extreme case I have heard of. Believe you have a bum phone.

I've had mine freeze a few times, so you're not alone there. I wouldn't deal with AT&T if you're having issues with your device; they aren't experts on the iPhone. Make a Genius Bar appointment and take it in to the Apple store where you can get some real answers.

agree with above. Though I've had mine for only about 1 week, I've yet to have the phone freeze on me.

I just posted a thread on this (didn't find this one till after). Mine does a sort of freeze, but very infrequently. I thought it was like a full memory or something (I know that was a windows mobile issue of apps not closing).

I cannot make it happen, but many times feels like when you try to access a web page and your signal is poor and takes forever. The freeze unfreezes, but take some time. Happened going to the weather app, camera, etc.
