    I'm having some trouble with my iPhone 3G- 3G service is still really slow, touch screen is sometimes sluggish and I receive voicemails hours later.

    I called and I reset the phone, it worked for a little and I just called again and I reset it in a different way....still not really working too well.

    I have an appointment at the Genius Bar- what will they do to find the problem?

    1. Check it for water damage
    2. Restore your phone
    3. Try to reproduce the problem
    4. play with them selves for 5 min
    5. give you a replacement

    6. go home to discover you have the same problems with the exchange.... priceless :D

    i read that the 3G problems have nothing to do with faultly hardware but problems with iPhone's OS. getting a new phone wont fix it. just wait for Apple to release firmware updates. im sure theyre working very hard right now with all the sh*t theyve got from the internets media.

    Oh my god that was funny...I was at an Apple store last week waiting endlessly for my appointment. I watched one of the geniuses stare at the computer monitor in front of him with a bewildered look on his face for no less than 10 minutes straight. I don't think I ever saw him click the mouse or type anything. I was about to think he died standing up. I really wish I knew what he was looking at.

    Do you think 2.1 will help battery life... somehow?

    Wow, just realized how random that was. I was thinking about my iPhone's recently shotty battery life and 2.1. So I guess the 2.1 comment triggered it. LOL.
