    I updated my iPhone 3G to 2.0.1 and i was very happy with the issue of lag on opening text and backing up when connected to my mac. But recently i have had a problem; the lag and hour long back up is back and is worse than when it was on 2.0! Is anyone having this same problem?!

    I have had a similar issue. I updated my original iPhone recently and the "backing up" portion of the synch process does take exceedingly long to complete. Maybe it has to do with all the app info being backed up.

    I have also noticed that it can take quite a good amount of time for particular apps to be copied from my phone into itunes. I have since stopped synching my apps with itunes (I have only downloaded free ones thus far.) This at least took care of some of that time...

    I have also noticed recently a lot of lag in texting, I mean the actual process of typing a text message. I can type whole sentences before the letters even begin to show up in the text field! Have you experienced this problem?

    I found with 2.0.x that everything lags. When I first start punching numbers in the cell phone "keypad", typing in any app, and even just head back to the home screen. It's rather disappointing.

    I'm using a 16GB 3G now, but the slow interface makes me miss my old iPhone.
