    If you were one of the early 2.0 firmware adopters that tried it yesterday before the official release, you may also have the problem where you sporadically receive incoming calls. Sometimes they work. Many times, they go straight to voicemail. If this happens, try the following (it worked for me):

    (1) Turn off "Push" in Settings -> Fetch New Data
    (2) Also go to the bottom and click "Advanced" and turn off MobileMe push
    (3) Under Settings -> AIM, turn on "Sign-off on Exit"

    It seems that non 3G iPhones cannot send/receive data while on the phone and vice versa (maybe a regional thing?). So if push is on, it seems to keep a data connection alive.

    Once I did the above, I could receive call again.

    Thanks. I tried looking through some of these threads, but there has been so much activity its hard to find specific things.

    Every now and then, I still get a call that goes to voice mail after using an App from the App Store that uses EDGE. If all else fails, I put the iPhone into Airplane Mode then back to normal just to cutoff any residual data connections.
