I have found that when i open the SMS application it can take about 5 seconds to come up.
its not a big problem but it feels wrong.

Try restart the device by pressing top button about 10 sec for shutdown menu then slide it to turn it off, then pressing top button again to turn it on.

I have faced 5 unwanted reboots and 2 reboots in less than a week, definately this OS needs facing stable issue.

The iPhone has crash issues since ages ago. Even my lesser iPod gets at least a crash a week. Just loading web pages can get Safari to crash, it gets worse while playing Music, which could turn into a complete crash of the OS (forcing me to hold onto the sleep/wake button for ages)

Loading times for application can vary due to other resources being used, so a reboot can sometimes improve performance, but if this doesn't solve it, try clearing messages. Otherwise, it may just be like that.

Interesting, I thought the claim to fame was that the device was so stable and reliable. I suppose it's not better in that regard than any other device.

You must be under-utilising the power of the iPhone then! Laughing

Seriously, there is no computer that runs with no problems at any point in time. This is no different.

What's different is the ability Apple users have to "let go" some of the problems - the same problems that would make them jump up and down if it was another platform.

Some call it a "Halo Effect"...

I've probably had about the same number of "outages" as Shin, usually occuring when apps are starting up.  Although I have had Safari crash out a few times.

I had one issue where one app had obviously left thing in an unstable state, and other apps wouldnt start (came up saying they were corrupt) and then one of them I was trying to launch caused a reboot.

Overall though i'm VERY happy with my purchase.

iPhone has not crashed for me, however Safari repeatedly crashes.
SMS is speedy to load, contacts can take 15seconds before it is responsive.. (my fault with 1200 contacts listed)
Camera (hardly used) takes a number of seconds to start up, however appears to be addressed in the next software update

Hey Matt, can you experiment a bit with speed of accessing your contacts via the phone app as opposed to the separate contacts app and see if theres any difference?

I have noticed a difference between them, but I want to hear your findings first.   Laughing

Cheers

I find a number of apps crash or freeze. The Contacts App is definetly slower, especially when/if you are using it with Exchange contacts. In my opinion I think Apple rushed firmware 2 and th 3G iPhone to market. Roll on 2.01 (or whatever it may be) :) don't get me wrong I love the thing but things just feel a little un-polished.

Oh, and I have a stuck pixel at the top left of the screen, 3 across and 8 down

I noticed it on the second day.

Using the Flashlight app, on a full green screen, the green pixel is dimmed, but on a bit.
On a white screen, the pixel is still only dim.  So it seems stuck at the low level.

Thankfully its right up out of the way, and not too bad.

Might try the green screen strobe for a while and see if it shifts it.

i got the camera issue as well. It's slow to load-up. I try to restore with iTunes (newer build than OTB) seemingly speed things up a bit but camera still kinda slow. Some has reported the FW2.1 is in the wild and soon to release.

Trolling?

OK I'll bite. Yes I'm a Mac fanboy, I switched on Mac OS X Tiger and haven't been back. Before then I have used Windows XP and started out using DOS to Windows 3.1 and the rest of the MS family including SBS etc. Aso I have used Debian for servers and played with Gentoo on the desktop. There is a reason for Apple users ready ability to "let go" of problems. And no it is not called the "Halo Effect" this usually refers to iPods leading consumers onto the Mac platform. No what your refering to is not the "Halo Effect", most would call it "Drinking the Kool-Aid".

The willingness of Apple users to forgive issues is tied to the way the system handles errors, if a function doesn't work, it usually just doesn't work.. no cryptic error no slow down no lost data usually no system crash (when there is it simply restarts) just kaput nada nogo doesn't happen. I can accept that, this is life, life has problems too, some things don't work. On windows I get a slowdown, followed by a cryptic error, then a crash resulting in data loss. In linux who knows, but I know I'll spend the next day/week/month/lifetime on Google trying to figure out just what happened and how to fix it.

Unfortunately I don't know anything about the iPhone 2.0 issues, I can't afford to get one thanks to Vodafone.
