    Since I installed 3.0 on my original 2G iphone, when I remove it from the dock the keyboard clicks and lock sounded are muted. If I restart the phone or turn the clicks off then on they work again until I dock the phone.

    I was thinking of restoring the phone, but have information in applications such as "Things" and "Upcoming" ect. that I can't loose. Is there a was to restore and not loose or back up my application databases?

    Thanks for your help!

    Right-click the phone icon in the iTunes sidebar and tell it to "Transfer Purchases." Then do it again and tell it to "Back Up."

    Then restore your phone. At some point it will ask if you want to use the backup file when you restore it. Say 'yes' and you'll get all your app data back. You then have to re-sync your music/photos/videos from the computer since they're not part of the backup.

    loose=not tight
    lose=misplacing something

    But no, if you restore your data won't become loose inside the phone.

    I knew a girl in HS who bought a custom jersey from our school. She put "Looser" on the back, thinking she had put "Loser." It was...hilarious :)
