    I have just applied the 2.1 update and have noticed the following changes:

    - The screen seems more yellow
    - iPhone is definitely snappier
    - The internal speakers are definitely louder
    - The second speaker now works on the bottom of the phone (it has never worked since purchasing iPhone)
    - If you shake iPhone when playing music, it shuffles the current playlist
    - 3G signal strength is vastly improved, before I could only get the 'washing machine' icon now I get full 3G coverage!
    - Battery life is MUCH improved. I haven't had to charge iPhone since the 2.1 update!

    A big pat on the back goes to Steve and the team.

    You are wrong. There is only 1 speaker on the bottom. The other is a mic. So you are hearing things noob.

    Look, I'm telling you, when I shake iPhone the playlist shuffles!

    Please don't call me n00b, I know lots about Apple and I love Steve.

    I just can't believe how much the improved 3G speeds have improved my downloaded Apps. Money Ball seems so much smoother now!

    ultimate fail!
    Bonus fail points for the two speakers comment. Bet this person doesn't have an iPhone.

    Some people that come here are confused enough already without you confusing them more with a thread full of lies. Go get a life already.

    It would seem that sarcasm and humor are lost on many....

    There's a fine line between sarcasm and trolling...and the OP didn't come anywhere near that in either of his posts.

    Come on boys, give it a rest. Next you will be accusing me of using Windows!

    I am only posting my experiences of this new iPhone firmware. My second iPhone speaker now works as it should and playlists have a life of their own - don't shoot the messenger.

    ...and I actually wanted to call myself 'scrub' but somebody else had already taken it.

    - Shaking to shuffle on the iPhone: Does not do that.
    - Second "speaker" on the bottom of the iPhone: It's always been a microphone and no software update will change the hardware.

    I also noticed that if, I place my finger tip over the left speaker on the bottom (not the right speaker, only the left speaker), the volume gets turned down a lot. Great new feature.

    Will this list of new features ever end!

    Nokia need to stand up and take notice. Now THIS is how you provide software updates.

    Damn.... it's just shuffled again...

    Yes... your other "speaker" turned from a mic into a speaker... fantastic firmware!

    Go back under your bridge now.
