    i have the same problem, although i've not yet been able to restore back to the previous firmware

    are you on a mac or windows? on a mac, you should be able to find the recent iPhone firmwares at:
    [your home directory]\Library\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\

    so go there, find the 2.1 firmware, delete it and then go back into iTunes and click the restore button. It'll find that it doesn't have a copy of 2.1 and will head off an re-download a new version. i hope that solves your problems, it's hasn't solved mine so i'm going to try and re-install the previous 2.0.2 firmware

    thanks for the tip, just getting around trying it as we speak..... any luck on your end?

    just reformated with the new download....seems more stable so far. 1 thing i did do different is to add 3 or 4 apps at a time, move to correct screen on the phone. then added more and so on. now i'm re-adding my music on...so we will see how it goes.
    thanks again for the firmware location
