    This is my first iPhone, so I'm not sure if this is normal. The youtube app is continuously buffering----over wifi AND 3G! What in the world? My previous two phones were android and youtube worked flawlessly. Is this is a common issue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I find if you use the native app it uses the hd quality download and is slower, if you use youtube via the web page its a quicker download because you can choose the sd download.

    Copy and paste this url into your safari browser on your IPhone.

    It will prompt you to save the bookmark to your homescreen and you can access it like an app from there :) It's much faster than the Apple Youtube app although videos are not displayed in full hd.

    Using the web page sounds weird since you already have the app, android app for YouTube is more advanced and for some reason buffers faster , I got no idea why the iPhone app buffers so slow in HD. But I guess using the browser will save you time , btw I use it on wifi and after 5 secs it plays and same for 3g(sometimes even less) but I know what you mean about the android app
