    I was looking around for a list of new features, but couldn't really find one.

    I've noticed my camera (3gs) now has zoom and touch to focus.
    And of course the Calculator icon is new.
    I also have a couple new alert sounds for text messages.

    On and on... is there a thread on this already?

    What are the new text alert sounds, if you don't mind sharing? (i'm not on 4.0 yet)

    Yeah, I meant to say just zoom.

    What I'm looking for is a list of all these new features, instead of digging around looking for them...

    Oh yeah, and there are some great new wallpapers that are designed to be home screen backgrounds.

    I now have Tritone, Chime, Glass, Horn, Bell, & Electronic.

    Pretty sure Bell and Chime are new.

    Also, I found this link that has a lot of features listed:

    I also found a global screen orientation lock! In the multi-task bar.

    You need to stop hitting the killa. These have been there since day 1 '07.

    Not sure about Chime, but Bell is, definitely, without a doubt, NOT new. I've been using that for the past year or so on OS 3.x.x.

    The one I found most interesting, and the one that will allow me to reduce my data plan to $15, is the toggle button for cellular data under network settings.

    :)

    "Places" under photos.

    You can now also edit the calendar for an even right from the phone (one of my biggest gripes!)

    Still no option to edit the group of a contact.

    The folders feature is great, as is the unified mailbox.

    Have they gotten wise to multiple signatures yet? This is definitely a gripe of mine. Boss is very picky so on 1/3 of my messages where it may eventually get back to him I am forced to type a new sig.

    +1 for the multiple Exchange accounts. My personal and work are on it so finally I don't have to pop my exchange server.

    Rad, thanks.

    Now you can see why I wanted a list of the updated features.... way to much killa to burn for me to make a list. ;)

    The bumpy background pattern of folders has been replaced with a dark linen-like pattern.

    I found one!

    If you turn your iPhone sideways in the iPod app, it switches to coverflow and you can flick through all your albums.

    The app labels have more of a Windows ClearType effect now. On my jailbroken iPod running 3.1.2, if you had a wallpaper with white or some other light color in it, the labels would blend into the wallpaper and almost disappear. In iOS 4, the labels are bolder and do not blend at all.
