    Evening all,

    I got my 3GS this morning, i upgraded from the 2G. I have been playing around testing speeds on 3G. I noticed that the video quality on youtube videos is much lower on 3G than when connected to WIFI. I understand why this is (to use less bandwidth) but its kinda annoying. Can this feature be turned off?

    I also got this strange screen earlier, i had to reset the phone to get rid. I have never seen it before

    its the same way on the 3g...... you cant watch "hi quality" videos on the iphone without being connected to wifi....and as of now i dont think there's any option to change that around which sucks :(

    My mum's iPhone EDGE and my iPhone 3G S both got that when trying to access The Cloud Wi-Fi at Wetherspoons. Think it was struggling to authorise our MAC addresses or something... Maybe it was the "Automatic Wi-FI Log-in" feature of 3.0?

    yup, that's the automatic log-in feature of the WiFi. That's what appears whenever you first start using the Wi-Fi at Starbucks.
