    Is it laggy? Is it usable yet? I want to know because I want to go ahead and download it, but as I cannot go back if there are any issues, I wanted to know if it's ready for normal usage yet. Then again, I don't know if there's much point yet without MMS- CCP isn't enough an incentive for a laggy firmware without any remedy. Thank you!

    I've heard it runs fine, some apps crash (dunno yet which ones). I'm downloading the firmware right now so I might check back when I get it up.

    it took 2 restores but now it runs almost as fast as 2.2.1 in my testing with 3 phones a touch laggy most features seem to work

    It runs great!! Actually for me, it runs better than 2.2.1. Most of the applications that crashed often in previous firmware doesn't have that problem now...

    I've been using it for the past half and hour and it seems really ok.
    I've tested 2 random free apps, synced my calendar and contacts with google sync, connected to my wifi network..

    No problems till here, but this is just too early to make a solid comment about it...

    It is a little laggy/buggy but it is usable. Text caret/loupe/copy and paste is buggy as hell in Safari.

    Can anyone get Youtube to work? I get "Cannot connect to Youtube"

    Somewhat laggy. I've had iPod crash a couple times. For some reason I can't access the Network settings in the General tab of settings. Can someone else confirm this?

    Confirmed. It just hangs with "Network" selected.

    Would like to add that 3.0 seems to be *killing* my battery life.

    You mean sound from apps vs sound from a call?

    No youtube.

    The phone seems a tad bit laggy, but useable. Tomorrow will be my first look at how the battery life is, as I've had it plugged in most of the night as I restored apps/music to it.

    I'm also seeing text input lag :(

    Ah well.. I took a chance and now I'm at their mercy :)

    Chalk me up as another with no YouTube.

    I can get into the Network settings, though it takes several seconds to load.

    I also had no sound when I first was up and running, a restart fixed that.

    Can someone with 3.0 please confirm that you can use copy/paste within Safari's address bar to copy weblinks? I need this for blogging. I'd assume you can do this but I also assumed copy and paste would have happened a long time ago.

    I guess in a worst case scenario I could email myself the link from safari and then copy the link from the email.

    Thanks for the response!

    Yes it does work.... when you hold down on a web link, a different pop up comes up asking if you want to open the site, open in new page, copy, or cancel

    Thanks RxMac! But if I want to copy the address (link) of the page I'm currently on, can I tap within the address bar to copy?

    Any more comments on the battery life? At this point, it's the only thing stopping me from installing.

    Aren't all these problem's expected with a beta version... I didn't expect that all these feature's would be working. If so they would have released it today and not in the summer.. I would think the reason why they are wanted is to work all the bugs out..

    I've been playing with Bluetooth A2DP (see other post) and it's noticeably draining my battery. Could make it unusable.
