Currently Being ModeratedAug 18, 2008 9:04 AM (in response to Mean Reltner)i have the original 8 GB, my phone is only months old and has also slowed considerably (and had slowed with the 2.0 also), especially with texting, but also with just pulling up contacts. i haven't seen anything about this on the sites, i thought 2.0.1 would have been a fix. please post if anyone finds a solution!Dell Desktop
Currently Being ModeratedAug 18, 2008 9:34 AM (in response to ChicagoChristopher)Sigh. I have the same problem with an original 4G phone. My mail also gets stuck in "Connecting" mode until I turn it off and back on. I recently got a new 4G because the power button got stuck and Apple replaced. So even with a brand new 4G phone, it's very slow. I've contacted Apple and they've ignored me.
We also had a terrible experience adding two new iPhones to the account. The people at the Apple store didn't know what they were doing and screwed up my account big time. My first bill was $900 for 3 iPhones because they were charging for internet use... per KB AND the $30 per month. It took 3 weeks and several phone calls to get my bill straight.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 21, 2008 6:23 AM (in response to Mean Reltner)i did the upgrade to 2.02 last night and it seems to have fixed the problem. apple seems to have gotten lazy in both product and software roll out. these problems could have been tested for and anticipated and fixed before roll out. extremely annoying and frustrating.Dell Desktop

You do lose some settings and Notes, but at least the phone will work smoothly (in our experience). And if you find something very important is lost, there are sites which show you where iTunes backs up your phone and you could move this directory somewhere else, in case you need to read an old SMS text or something.
