Alright. Im not sure if what im experiencing is normal or not so im going to post some of the things that have happened to me and lets see if these are normal glitches or my iphone is going screwy.

The unit, on the iPhone dock, sometimes sits there and connects and disconnects and reconnects and disconnects.

When you push the silent ringer button, sometimes it does it and other times it wont and then a minute later it will do it and then dosent do it again later times.

Within Google Maps, ill sometimes find a location, click on it and tell it to get directs to here or from here and then when im choosing my other address, it dosent save the place I originally found. ill either have to try 10 times before it does or exit the application and relaunch and then it does it fine.

last but not least, im a little paranoid if my battery is fine. It lasts a day no problem but is damn near drained. I dont make alot of calls but do use the movie and music and mostly web. I might have about 30 or so texts, hour of music and video and about 2 hours of internet and just another hour of random playing with stocks and weathers and such. This usually gets me to the 25% battery meter area I would say. Normal? Battery issue?

Another time, when the alarm was set, I hit the side button, unit stops then few minutes later, it rings again and I hit the snooze button and a few minutes again, she rings, I then unlock her and then she later on rings again. I go to the alarm setting and see that now the alarm is off and a few minutes again, she ran so I had to shut down the unit and turn it back on.

But yea, these seem to be some of my over all issues I can remember.

Thoughts? Time for an exchange?

So it's like it gets disconnected and then reconnected to USB several times at random? I've experienced that happen. I think it's my god-awful PC, though. Luckily I sold it today and will be buying a MacBook Pro 15" as soon as I ship it to the guy. :)

Alarm: All the methods you describe will make the alarm snooze. When the alarm goes off, the main screen will give you the option of snooze or "slide to turn off alarm". It's very easy to miss the "slide..." notice and cause it to snooze. If you have started a snooze cycle, then turn off the alarm, the cycle will still complete. The alarm symbol should still be showing if it is snoozing (even if alarm shows off). To turn off the alarm AND cancel a current running snooze cycle, turn the alarm ON then OFF. The alarm symbol should go away.

hhmm thanks for that tip :D

As far as the other issues go? Mine is the 7 series btw, not the 5. I know there was some issue with the earlier and late built units....
