    I restored via iTunes, and then set up email - then manually synced contacts / music / vids etc. And everything is working 100% now.

    Does that method mean you lose all the settings / SMS / Photos etc? I had the same problem when upgrading to 2.0 today. I know the answer to the Mail app crashing is to change the permissions for the mail folder, but as you cant jailbreak the phone to install SSH it doesnt seem possible to fix it that way just yet.

    Restoring via iTunes will wipe out everything on the iPhone, but if you sync just before doing the restore there will be a backup on your computer which iTunes will simply re-sync onto the phone once the update is completed.

    Just another endorsement. Just recieved an O2 PAYG. Did the same as everyone else so far and it worked fine.

    I was prviously unlocked/jailbrocken/activated using iLiberty+

    I didnt choose to restore data. Just went and entered it all again and it all works

    Just a question to those in the UK on O2 with 2.0, how's 'locate me' working for you? I have a 16GB 2.5G phone and it doesn't seem to work well in London anymore.

    It's not possible because of the way AT&T handles their activation now. O2 still relies heavily on iTunes, especially for the soon to be rolled out iPhone Pay and Go plan (essentially they're waiting for surplus phones), which is why this seems to work okay. Makes sense too, I mean it's still locked to O2, so why would O2 care if you're activating the phone so long as the plan you're using is with them.

    But this is not compatible with AT&T's new setup.

    It's actually working better for me... it finds me with much better accuracy (I'm in Reading) but it does seem to take quite a bit longer than before.

    Can anybody tell me if this method will work for me, i currently have a UK iphone on 1.1.2 and using my O2 pay as you go sim. I brought my phone with the 1.1.2 FW downgraded to 1.1.1 to bypass activation then upgraded back to 1.1.2.
    Can i restore my phone in iTunes and upgrade to 2.0? or will that not work? Does my phone need to be unlocked, as its not at the min? any help would be really usefull at the min, Thanks!

    I was on 1.1.4 jailbroken. I restored in itunes and it installed 2.0 for me. A bit worrying, but it worked. I had to activate, and away it went with no problems. Currently running with no issues.

    As far as I am aware it should work for you!
