    Is anyone else finding going online on O2 at the moment (on a 2G phone) intolerable?

    Multiple "sever cannot be found" messages, regular "Network transit" errors etc. All happening in lots of different locations and on lots of different sites.

    Is this proxy of O2's playing up? Is it just my handset?

    I have definitely noticed Edge reception is worse on my V1 iPhone.

    I used to browse on the Tube (overground bit obviously!) with GPRS about 60% of the time and Edge 40% of the time (yes, Edge coverage IS that bad in London). Now I rarely get Edge, when I do it is often slower than GPRS, I get 'no-service' a few times and some weird proxy error occasionally.

    This is all with V2.0 firmware. Perhaps 2.0.1 will improve things as it might not be an O2 issue.
