    Can anyone post what your first impressions of 3.1 are? I'm excited to hear about what the experience is like? Is it vastly better than 3.0 or is it more of the same?

    3.1 is at least 1/10% better and different than 3.0

    I noticed that in the 3.1 beta. Not really sure if it's a bug or intentional.

    Question:

    I know that MMS will not be activated until the 25th, BUT, isn't there supposed to be a camera icon in "messages"?

    :) I am really happy with this. I can't find ringtones in the iTunes store though. Seriously you can see the phone pulling the App before its fully open lol

    Updater crashed for me so I had to restore. Lost some in-app data, but these things can happen (although it shouldn't, and it sucks it happened to me)

    Ohh i must say since 3.0 my 3G signal has not been as strong and seems to be the same in 3.1

    OMG just tried the speaker and the sound is so crisp...sounds great. AWESOME!!!!! not so distorted

    Seems a lot faster. Battery life is also so much better.

    Voicemail during update

    During the sync immediately after the firmware update, I have received a new voicemail.
    The sync is still going fine, but I can get to the voicemail without stopping the sync.

    Very impressed that the update has continued. :D

    Sweet. They didn't fix any of the UI glitches I submitted months ago and the animation still stutters when opening some apps.

    Awesome job Apple! NOT!

    :mad: I'm so over this iPhone. I can't wait to cancel my contract now. :mad:

    The genius app feature is pretty cool. Any new way to browse for apps is a plus for me.
