The checkerboard, or background grid that you see until the actual section of the page loads has always been annoying. Of course it's just a lag waiting for the CPU or video to catch up. Even happens when you scroll back up to view a section of the page that had already loaded. Related issue of scrolling through contacts, email - lag and choppy. Affects apps as well, some more than others. iTV doesn't seem to load the next section until you go to scroll toward it. So anyone who has lived with this on your previous phones, are you still seeing it on the 3Gs?
