    I love the new goodies in 2.0, but I think that the rumored memory leak is getting really annoying. At first, I just had some occasional app crashes or apps that reset the iphone. But now I seem to have angered it, requiring me to turn my iphone off (red slider) and on to get things working properly again every day or so.

    The latest symptoms are the "click" sounds (when I turn the iphone on or off) disappearing. I haven't experimented yet to see if other sounds, like alerts, are also being disabled. This started after I upgraded a few apps over the weekend. I'm not sure which may be the culprit, but I upgraded AIM, Facebook and Mobile News. I use those apps every day, and eventually the memory leak symptoms begin.

    Anyone experiencing similar issues? I'm glad that 2.0.1 and 2.1 have been spotted in testing, so hopefully these issues will be resolved soon. It is just sad because 1.4 (or whatever the last one was) was so rock solid for me.

    the 3Gs have been as bad if not worse with regards to crashing.

    Upgraded my original iPhone to 2.0 software like July 13th. I installed a few apps and the crashing would not stop. It was ridiculous all the crashing and resetting.

    Got the iPhone 3G and have only had crashing/resetting happen about 5 times in the 10 days that I have owned it. The 3G is much better than the original when it comes to 2.0 software.

    Let me make it clear that I had a perfectly functioning original iphone before installing the 2.0 firmware. And reseting or turning off the phone ALWAYS makes the situation better. I am 100% confident that I'm not having any hardware issues.

    It is also my understanding that the core components of the 3G iphone besides the radio are carryover, so I find it hard to believe that there is a significant difference between the functionality of both models.

    I've seen enough postings from both 3G and original owners to believe that the problems are software based and are affecting both models equally.

    Processor facts:

    iPhone classic: 620MHz ARM CPU

    iPhone 3G: 835MHz ARM CPU

    The iPhone 3G runs on a significantly faster processor.

    Actually, the linked document is referring to the cell network frequency not the processor speed.

    I have a 2G iPhone upgraded to 2.0, and so far I have not had any crashes. I've only installed 3 apps, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

    My original iPhone, now with 2.0 firmware crashes constantly in Safari. And it is pretty slow now as well. I'm all ready for the 2.0Beta to be done with and move on to the full 2.1 version!

    Prior to my upgrade, I had no problems.

    Likewise, I have a small handful of apps installed and I've had no problems to speak of with anything crashing. Safari has crashed a couple of times, mail has crashed a couple of times since the 11th, that's it. A friend, on the other hand, installs every piece of worthless trash that shows up on the app store and his 3G crashes constantly. Several times a day, at least.
