    Anyone care to post rough timings for certain tasks?
    opening messages (sms/mms inbox) takes about 2.5 secs. seems slower than the older software.
    everything seems a bit sluggish.

    I did feel 3.0 was slower until I did a clean install (vs. an install and then a restore from backup).

    Now, 3.0 is running awesome. Much quicker to open mail, sms, safari. Battery life is greatly improved as well.

    Try a clean install.

    Sorry for the newb question but...

    How do I do a clean install and restore all my phone #'s etc... What extactly is a clean install vs. just installing the new firmware?

    Will all my apps/data be restored with a clean install?

    A clean install is where you do NOT restore your phone after upgrading.

    Instead, you manually set everything up again, like it was new.

    So I installed 3.0 GM. I did not do a restore after that though. All my contacts, apps, and data were already still there!

    I may have gone in manually and done some settings after that.

    So... did I do a clean install???

    Thanks!!

    iPhone 3.0GM is actually amazingly fast on my restore... however when I jailbroke my iphone I got rid of some applications which are not there - (so like calc and notes arn't there as I hid them while doing a JB).
