    getting sporadic issues. i'm sure 2.0.1 will be on the way in the next week. apple usually doesn't launch things like this or mobile me (STILL not up!!!). very strange, but i guess it's tough making 500 developers' apps to work on one machine.

    I have been having some minor issues, apps have sometimes been crashing on me now, only the demanding apps like games and stuff. They brought me back to the home screen about 4 - 5 times today. Also it has crashed so badly that the iPhone has to restart itself, this has happened twice. But I myself manually restarted it and so far it has been smooth as butter, I'm sure it can be better but for now it's fine and I'm very happy.

    :lol: This is quite funny. I thought this was the very reason Apple did the whole sandbox thing to keep things stable . Guess not. Better think twice before talking bad about windows mobile or blackberry os, it's not easy making an OS to allow third party support on a cell phone.

    The only app to crash on me today is the App Store itself, oddly enough.

    Having problems with light, removed everything and put it all back on less light and it's been fine so far.

    I guess so, but it is still pretty advanced and stable in comparison. Not that I'm protecting Apple or being biased against you or anything.

    The 2.0 update isn't out yet officially. But to be honest, anything .00 will have some bugs in it. Even Apple App Store apps.

    I'll give you that.

    I just wished more people would appreciate some of Apple's competitors and not be so one minded when it comes to technology. What I like about Apple is they're some revolutionary changes to the general OS system (Active Sync, Push System for app notifications, etc etc).

    I think in due time, Apple will be able to work out the bugs I just hope they will because this OS and philosophy behind is very exciting!

    In all honestly, using plenty of phones in my lifetime I can easily say Windows Mobile is the biggest pile of crap ever whipped up in Redmond. Blackberry & Symbian are great devices and Palm had a good thing going before they forgot to update there software, but WM should be retired.

    The iPhone is a great phone, nothing is like it and it will be some time before there is some alternatives in the same league. The thing to remember is nothing is perfect. Hell, even I can admit that almost every Apple computer that I have owned has been in for service, unlike most of my old Dell computers.

    I am a huge Apple fan but you have to admit they did a sweet job on the iPhone.

    Also remember - its 2.00. Many aspects of the OS are being pushed in ways that they never were before.

    AIM and Ebay have been crashing for me. Ebay shut the phone off twice, AIM shut it off once, but usually just takes me to the home screen.

    Every few times I start iTunes Remote, the entire phone just does a hard reset.

    If you mean the Apple logo comes up and it restarts, the phone's probably running low/runs out of available memory which lead to a reboot. If you have an iPhone Developer account (with Apple) you can download a movie about it on iTunes ADC. Of course it could just be the app, but it hasn't done that to me on AIM or eBay yet, but some other free apps.

    Funny - although I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to say yet (no the NDA has not been lifted), I have not seen any crashes for awhile in normal use. Yes there are bugs in the OS and apps are pushing APIs of the OS in ways that they were never tested much, but its been pretty solid for me.

    I also want to add - a few months ago I mentioned that the one thing I expected Mac developers to have a hard time with is writing apps for a mobile device and its different limitations/requirements - and I was right. While the iPhone is more liberating than WinMobile or BlackBerry, its still a tight squeeze and you have to write embedded efficient code. Not many desktop developers have any experience in that.

    AIM is crashing for me, but I think it's because it's trying to log into the screen name too often.
