    Yet we keep seeing people posting here with Zero issues with the iPhone period. No Safari crashes, no Mobile Me sync issue, no eMail issues.... Are they using the iPhone with zero apps installed? Are they using just Mobile Me and no other mail apps? I just find it highly suspect with their claims.

    I've deleted every third party app I have. It doesn't fix the sluggish typing here on this site but so far it has not crashed. I will use safari on the iPhone this way for awhile to see if it really stays stable.

    The whole idea of the 'jail' is to protect apps from each-other, so even if its caused by a third party app then its still Apple's problem.

    Why would it be Apples fault? The third party app causes the crashes. Pretty straightforward.

    The third party apps can't even run when you are in Safari (according to the SDK), so if they some how have some influence on it (which I doubt) then the iPhone OS isn't doing its job.

    Well supposedly. But with zero third party apps, Safari seems to be doing much better right now. Hasn't crashed yet.

    I just did a full restore*, turned off all sync options, connected to my wifi (so no link/3g issues) and Safari choked after 20 minutes of reading posts on Bloglines.

    * no music, videos, email, contacts, apps... nothing.

    I find this problem (these problems --2.1 fixed the apps crash (though I had one further series after an itunes synch recently) only to introduce greater instability to Safari. If there is an apps conflict or an apps limit why are we not informed (e.g. keep your apps to a certain limit or you will experience crashes). I find this whole thing beginning with the 3g release extremely frustrating. When it works, it's great, when it doesn't, which is far too often, you wonder why you are paying a fortune each month for so much wasted time. If Apple people are reading this post: PLEASE FIX SOON. I think the happy posters are not frequent users of Safari or simply unfazed when it crashes. I doubt this is a problem with a small percentage of the units.

    I've had the iPhone 3g for a week. Have not downloaded any apps. Safari constantly crashes, particularly when entering text, eg Facebook wall posts. Basically crashes out of random sites including Apple UK

    I finally experienced what some others have mentioned. Safari completely frozed. The iPhone also completely frozed. After a minute or so the iPhone rebooted on it's own.

    Also every other forum or sites accessed on the iPhone, typing is normal speed. Yet here on Apples own forum it's slow as molasses.

    In my experience the slow typing is not connected to Apple web site or any specific web site. The only pattern I've noticed is that slow typing usualy foretells a Safari crash coming within less than two minutes, usualy less than one minute. I sometimes get crashes without the slow-typing warning.

    Is the following consensus correct from the postings above?

    The problem occurs predominately in Safari on iPhone 2.x, not 1.x.

    It occurs mostly on web sites involving user input.

    It occurs without any regard to applets, mail configuration or generation of iPhone hardware.

    Safari sometimes goes 30 minutes without crashing, but once a crash occurs, future crashes will come quickly, sometimes within seconds until the iPhone is turned off and then on again.
