    Default OS 3.1 on 2g (Buggy ???)

    The internet is being flooded with horror stories regarding: lock-ups, random reboots and horrific battery life. However, most of these are reserved to the 3g. Has anyone updated on 2g...and what are your findings? Should 2g users hold out until a more stable 3.1.1 is released???

    So far so good on mine. Only been 1 day but pwnage worked fine, iphone is fine all day today so far. I use it pretty heavily at work, on t-mobile and wifi, with exchange server. Pulled it out of the dock at 8am, it's 2pm now and the battery is still mostly charged.

    i did upgrade my yesterday with 3.1 and today i was in the Tube/U-Bahn/Underground where I never had reception an today my g/f called me I got superb reception. With 2.2 it was not possible. Battery life is also ok, no noticeable power drain, maybe even better that with 2.2

    I have a 2G upgraded to FW:3.1. I had a huge battery drain problem with FW:3.0. It is fine now. I enjoy the Music Genius Mixes because my iPhone has only 4g of memory so it helps me chose the songs to be placed on my iPhone.
    I also think it is more stable.

    I havent upgraded too.And i m not conviced yet that its worth the trouble re installing 3rd party progs(even with pkgbackup)and customizing it in my needs.3.0 is pretty stable for me(usually over a week uptime without reboots and no problems),i have no battery drain problems9sinde i uninstalled the mms for 2g and in a nutshell everything's running smoothly.
    My question is-besides the security bug patched in 3.0.1-are there any obvious improvements in 3.1 as far as the 2G is concerned?

    Default 3.1 on 2G iPhone

    I think it is slower. When I scroll my Podcast listing, it is not smooth like it was before. It is more noticeable in games. Besides, losing mms was a blow. But, I would recommend it anyway.
