it won't fix 3G connectivity most likely as iPod Touch has the 2.0.2 update as well

Oh wow ... I updated my shiny new iPod Touch ... iTunes still said it was 2.0.1.

After the update I was like OMG ... it's 2.0.2 .. I'm SPECIAL! :D

I'll wait and see what this is going to do, reception sucks with 2.0 or 2.0.1 but I could still make and receive calls.

Apple is seriously starting to be like M$

DAMMIT! I've been trying to download the update for 40 min. but my internet keeps dropping because we have a major thunderstorm right now!!
It's almost like the weather guy does not care about me updating my iPhone!!!

Your point is? They fixed some bug fixes, but all the 3G downloads are larger than the iPhone EDGE downloads, which are larger than the iPod Touch downloads, so likely they had the base OS update, then an EDGE update, and then a 3G update depending on which device is downloading the update.

Downloading now for iPod touch. When I first updated to 2.01 I found it nice and fast, but eventually it lagged alot, especially going into my contacts list. And I was getting 'low free memory' errors from apps when I have 1.4gb free on my 16gb touch.

I am glad they seem to be trying to keep up with the fixes though :)

Actually, I think we all have to have the update since it is firmware...
iPod touch and iPhone firmware updates have thus far not always been simultaneous releases...

Not that I'll be downloading it immediately; I'll wait till the iPhone Dev Team has had a chance to look at it... :D

Hope this fixes the issues some are having. I won't be able to tell 'cause I don't even have 3G yet where I'm at.

the good and the bad

Well I now get 3G reception in my office (in NYC) where I did not before. Too bad that I get the error "Cannot connect to server" when using safari and Mail never connects.

Yeah.. sweet update:eek:

Think I'll wait a day or two on this one. After several "recovery mode" re-installs, my phone has been happy and stable for the past week or so.

248.7MB - I hope there's something in there to fix the 3G issues!!!!
Every update will be the same size since it'll be the entire firmware being replaced.

I have noticed a"snappier" interface, but the same thing happened with the last update which eventually became laggy again.
