    Has anyone put OS4 oniPhone 3G? I'm wondering if you are able to stream radio in the background. I know you aren't supposd to be able to multi-task, but I'm hoping radio apps work differently. I know other apps are more or less frozen in the background during multi-tasking....I think.

    Only in Safari, the same as you could in 3.0.



    And even if you had a 3GS, none of the 3rd party apps work in the background yet anyway.

    Thank you.

    the OP would have been better served searching and finding the answers quicker instead of creating yet another does this OS4 feature work on a 3G thread. :rolleyes:

    You know what really pisses me off? Searching Google for help on something, and then finding a thread where the only reply is "use search n00b".

    I was hoping someone who has installed the beta on a 3G would post.

    STOP HERE TO AVOID A MINI-RANT.

    I've googled and used the search in the forums and haven't come up with anything. I'm sure it may be buried in a post that is 20 pages long, but I don't have the time to read pages upon pages, nor the inclination.

    I normally turn the other cheek to people's less than helpful posts, both to my questions and others'; however, today is different.

    If you feel like my post or any other post is a waste of your time, don't read it, yet alone take the time to post comments that make posters regret asking a question.

    It takes much less time for you to scroll over any post that you feel is cluttering up the forums, than it does to read and post a belittleing comment.

    I have beta 2 on my old 3G and no background tasks appear to work, even music. I didn't expect it though since they outlined that at the keynote.

    Aside from a few UI bells and whistles, there doesn't appear to me much for 3G users - unless it makes Safari 'snappier'. Then it's totally worth it. ;)
