Too bad it's still only AT&T - I'm not ready to go back to them yet.

just make sure it does a backup before updating your software. Aren't you eligible for iphone 4?

*sigh*

Ug. So I lost all my apps and the itunes library. I did back them up this morning so now I have to put them back on my phone. I didn't lose pictures, texts, or phone numbers.

Oh, and I was able to set my background to black and keep my lock screen picture.

How do you back up your stuff? I thought it was supposed to do it for you?

I have a 3Gs. I thought the update was going fine. As the progress bar neared the end a box popped up and said that the download could not be completed. At the point my phone froze on the silver apple for about 10 minutes. I closed itunes. I was not able to restart my phone so I started itunes again. at this point the silver apple went away and I got the "plug in to computer and start itunes" screen.

When I started itunes again a box popped up and said that my phone could not be found because it was in restore mode. It suggested I restore the phone to the factory setting but then warned me that I would lose data.

As it turns out when I restored the phone it updated to the iOS4. I had all my apps backed up when I synced this morning so I was able to put them back on the phone.

I don't think the update is supposed to make the phone crash.

Dang. So it's a good idea to sync first before trying to upgrade. Is the new software that much better? Is it worth it?

Yes, sync first. As far as the new software. . .eh, so far.

The camera seems to take pictures quicker, if you don't like multiple screens you can put apps into folders. (I probably won't do this) and it has a spell check not just a word suggestion. I haven't figured out how to multi-task yet but that seems like a waste of battery to me.

I am loving the iPhone 4...but had to wait 2 1/2 hours in line + a 2 1/2 hour round trip from Greenville SC to Charlotte NC (I was on a business trip and reserved one in Charlotte)

GREAT SCREEN and GREAT Camera. Much zippier than my 3G was at moving around within the phone.

have you had any of the problems with the screen blips and service drop outs that have been reported?

A gal I was with tonight had the new iphone. Holding it, it did not feel as comfortable as holding my 3g. But the camera is awesome. The fact that you can switch the screen to take a pic of yourself, or switch it the other way to take pics of others was pretty cool. And it takes pictures in like a split second. Much faster than mine. I did like that. Great quality too, no blur at all. It's weird that both sides are glass. And the only 'case' available only covers the edges. Why the hell did they do that? It's pretty cool but I'm still not sold yet.
