like the subject, I am totally disappointed with Apple for the 3.1 update.
I do like the new iTunes update, but not for the iPhone. They should have told us if the update is only mean for 3GS and not for 3G.

now my phone is keep shutting down (5-7 times each day), Keep on looping in signal searching process, slow respond for everything, and half life of the battery compare to before.

I think the only way for me to fixed this is by upgrade my phone to 3GS.. :(

That sounds strange... - have you tried to install 3.1 as NEW on your iPhone, and not as an update? / Have you tried to downgrade to 3.0 - to see about that?

As well you should.

For here is a company that released an update that added new iTunes features, but caused more iPhone problems and fixed few of the existing bugs.

I believe we are all in the Apple extended beta period where WE are all unknowingly testing their operating system.

I wonder if any of these bugs are actually damaging the phone.

mine's much better than with 3.0.1
I think you should restore, and set it as a new iPhone.
everything's faster, battery life's better... I haven't had any of those problems
good luck

The update is for all models of the iPhone (2G, 3G and 3G). Others have reported problems with the 3.1 update, which is why you need to learn to WAIT THINGS OUT! ;)

Too bad I didn't wait, I upgraded the night that they released it and ever since, I've regreted it every single minute. Lol.

Back to some GREAT advice already given. Have you restored the phone as a new device? If you don't want to do that you may try a hard reset.

Thanks guys, I will try to perform a total reset asp ... just want to make sure one thing.... for the apps that I've purchased, can I download it again for free in Apps store? I want to try setting the phone from scratch rather than restore from my backup since It's so many error with current backup...

A friend of mine just got a replacement phone. His original was backed up & the new one restored by the Genius. Later, he noticed many apps were missing. When he went to re-download the apps, the Apple Store said he had already purchased them and they were installed again as if they were free.

YMMV

And if you restore as new from the PC where your iTunes account is you won't even have to redownload the apps.

I'm stock on 3.0 and happy. I have way better battery life than I ever had on my 3G and everything works great. I would love to update to a superior operating system if I ever read there is one.

I'm staying away from 3.1 for now. Everything's running well on 3.01 and not enough improvements on 3.1 to justify loosing my Jailbreak. I may even hold off on the update after a JB is available for 3.1 on the 3GS due to all these bug reports with 3.1. I may wait until 3.1.1.

3.1.1 is next goal, and that won't happen unless I get a lot of glowing reports first.

Just read that OS 3.1 will stop exchange sync for 3G and 2G devices if server require device encryption.

so sad, for 3G user like me who still want to access their work mail, they have to stop update the OS to newer version or switch to 3GS. :-(

thats impossible. Apple doesn't let you do this. unless dev team comes up with a downgrader it shall be impossible.

i lost my jailbreak and i knew but i am not sure why i pressed the damn update bottom... but 3.1 giving me edge issue. its almost like it wants to me to 3g and nothing else, it switches to grps many many times.

Technically, Apple stores should be replacing units if the problem is replicable in the store.


I'm just saying'!
