    Smile iPhone 2G with 3.0 GM Firmware: YouTube & My Location

    Yesterday I was able to update my firmware to the GM version in my unlocked 2G iPhones.
    I can make a summary of the features I can find in the 2G:

    Works:
    - Copy & Paste: Works great!!!
    - Spotlight
    - Landscape mode
    - Voice Memos

    Doesn't Work
    - My Location: Google Maps can't find My Location (Any ideas??????)
    - YouTube
    - Find My Phone: Because of My Location problem

    Feedback is welcome!!

    Screenshots of the problems:

    My first guess was going to be that since the 2g iPhone uses cell phone triangulation that it might not work for location on non-approved carriers since Apple would not have that data. But then I realized that it did work pre 3.0, so I have no idea.

    I live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL... my upgrade to 3.0 on my 1st gen ATT phone went without a hitch and runs perfectly. Seems peppier but always seems like that after a fresh restore.

    Location feature works great... great because seems to pinpoint even better than before. In N. Lauderdale and where I work in West Palm the dot was basically on top of me instead of 1/4 off.

    No problem playing from youtube either. I'd hard reset the phone and restore again... it happens.

    So are you saying that Youtube didn't work at the first 3.0 GM update?

    No... I am saying that the upgrade for me was perfect and everything is working including youtube.

    I was saying you should reset the phone and then just do another restore... it happens and restoring it again helps.

    I really would like to...but I think I will lose my activation (not the official one)...or is there a way to restore keeping the activation?

    Youtube works for you because you are using an official carrier: AT&T.

    I believe those who are having problem with youtube in 3.0 are on non-official carriers.

    I have the same problem.

    After the update to 3.0GM no more YouTube or location services.

    It worked perfectly on 2.2.1 and older.

    I have a 2G iPhone & I use a non-official carrier (Belgium)
