Apps locking up also might not be a 2.1 software issue, rather rather an App software issue (more likely). Some apps might need a patch/update to go along with the 2.1. I would chalk that app lock to the app itself for the time being.It's still too soon to tell if I like this update or not. I updated this morning to 2.1 and I'm curious as to how my battery life is going to increase (or so Apple says), given that I'll keep everything consistent with how I normally use my device.
I've already had one app lock-up on me (Crazy Lighter). It has frozen before with 2.0.2 (about one out of every four times I run it), and just froze a minute ago under 2.1.
I'll vote tomorrow or sometime over the weekend, once I have a better feel for the update and its (perceived) benefits.
The speedy app download/actually working on the iPhone is another huge plus, you are right. I forgot to mention how much less of a pain it was.I cannot tell you how happy I am. I am getting full 3G service inside my house (-90 to -95 in field test before I was getting -135 to -140 and then switching to Edge). They fixed the lag issue I was having text messaging, my mail is pushing, my battery life seems to be holding up MUCH better then it was, and apps are installing literally 4 times faster then before. I also noticed that after I updated, that Now Playing and Phone Saber reinstalled itself. I think the new firmware recognizes a bad app install and will reinstall your app for you to fill in the holes, cause both apps are working the best they have ever worked. Extremely happy with this update.
That was #2 on my list behind call quality with the 3G. I really don't care about bars I know what frequency I should be getting with 3G reception. If I had 2 bars but -90 I would be happy. I am glad they resolved that issue. I was tired of deleting apps and reinstalling them to stop them from crashing, it was such a pain. All in all I am really happy.The speedy app download/actually working on the iPhone is another huge plus, you are right. I forgot to mention how much less of a pain it was.
Seriously, I used to use that site to....But I did some research, and it exagerates the #s a little much. Trust me.Here is my speed test with 3G inside my house. This also shows the new 3G image. I have gotten it to 1.67 MBPS and 204 KB's download.
Tex just for you my man. I still cannot tell you how nice it is to see full service under 3G.
.... impressive..... I do not know why I show such a discrepency b/w the two sites. Very odd. I jsut did it again. the one you originally used has me at ~1200 kbps. The other at 859kbps.
I have heard from a few people here today that 2.1 fixed the BSOD. Don't know personally, but seems as though it has been fixed.Well my update to 2.1 went smoothly after I reinstalled iTunes. U had rigged it to stop my BSOD by replacing the Mobile Support Device with the 7.7 version. The update to 2.1 was not happy. Crashed my phone. I uninstalled all Apple software, reinstalled iTunes, did a restored backup, then updated to 2.1. Went so smoothly it was scary. I put a bunch of my apps back on the phone and the phone seems stable. I haven't had the balls to plug it in to see if I still get the BSOD. I disconnected all USB periferalls when I did the update. Also, when I switch to 3G I have no service. I tried a hard reboot and still no service with 3G. Is anyone getting the BSOD running a PC after the 2.1 update? Thanks.
