Anyone noticed that typing on 3g iPhone has lag now? Even the audible clicks are slower... Not huge issue but noticeable. Wife's new phone same as mine... Anyone else?

    I haven't noticed any typing lag except for when I'm in Safari and Safari hasn't completely finished loading the page I'm on. And in that case, I find the iPhone 3G the same as the 2G, they both lag quite a bit. The only silver lining there is, an easy work around is to let the page load completely before typing into search fields, etc.

    yes, I've had the same issue.
    sometimes when I'm texting and I misspell a word, there is a delay and it doesnt correct the word until I'm already typing the next word and the little box with the correction doesnt even come up, it just makes the change.

    I've also noticed that sometimes there are no keyboard clicks or there is a huge delay and they all play really fast one right after the other after I've already typed the word.

    yes i have the same thing but the lag only happens every once in awhile. after 2 minutes and my phone locks then everything is good again or i can reset it either way its very annoying i think it might be a memory issue not a huge deal but would it be nice if there was a patch or something i can avoid doing to provoke the slower txting

    I noticed today I'm about a tap and a half ahead of my phone when typing BUT it still corrects well when it finally catches up.

    This is definitely a problem...there seems to be a delay on how 2.0 is running...I actually did a test by placing my old iPhone next to my iPhone 3G and each time I tapped a similar icons (not using the internet) on both, there was definitely slower responds on the iPhone 3G...I seem like I'm always waiting for my iPhone 3G to catch up with my request...this is frustrating and very disappointing to say the least !

    Noticed the same thing on the 3G it was getting much worse over time. I rebooted the phone it seemed to help it out a bit but it seems that typing on the new 3G is a little more picky then the old one

    Definitely!

    I noticed it when I got the pre-official v2.0, but when I got to an Apple Store & played w/ the 3G's, I noticed the same thing...

    Hopefully it will be fixed!

    What we all may be experiencing is the fact that the iPhone is doing a lot of things such as wi-fi, 3G, GPS, etc., etc., etc.

    You need to remember that there is only one CPU aboard to handle all of the computer functions including the interpretation of what typed key has been hit. The more you load onto the CPU, the more it has to do and regardless of how powerful the CPU is or the CPU Chip is, it will slow the process down.

    I have not found it, and it may not be there, but an iPhone meter measuring CPU load would be great in these situations.

    You talked about a 3G iPhone. What do you mean it does not have any more functions?

    What about GPS, what about 3G, etc., etc.

    It is doing a heck of a lot more than it was doing before just pinging all of it new capabilities takes time away from other CPU functions.
