iPhone 4.0 What Works, What Doesn't
Hi all, I realize I'm new here but I thought I would start a thread for those of us who were early in adopting and have been fooling around with the new 4.0 Firmware in the hope that others contemplating taking the jump will find this helpful...
What I've found works:
-All the previous features of the 3.1.3 update (except tethering? Can someone confirm this?)
-All new UI features (Folders, Search web etc...)
-Multitasking (Although it's not very useful in it's current state as non-apple app's have yet to be developed to use this feature)
What doesn't work
-Mail threads (like in gmail)
-iBooks (Icon is not even there)
-Game Center (able to make an account, but I don't think apple's end servers are functional yet...)
I'm sure i've forgotten something, but for now this is what I've got, It's really a fantastic update and I agree with others in that Apple's philosophy is never to be the *first* at anything, it's to be the best, and if that takes an extra year or two i'm all for it...
Reply with things you'd like me to test out or with things you've found that are working/not working
Can you test passcode lock? I read somewhere on twitter it is not functional, so if you can test it and reply that would be great.
Works fine for me!

With this beta, it can be enabled. Apple might make it harder to turn on the time OS 4.0 is released. See http://www.hackint0sh.org/f236/121203.htm

so for non devs, the 4.0 beta isn't going to be much of a difference.
Compass seems to be messed up for me keeps locking up.
I noticed random things
Some things I noticed
-When you put apple default apps into a folder, they disappear from the phone when organizing apps in iTunes. When you put 3rd party apps in a folder, it shows them on the home screen.
-Backups don't work.
-The shortcut to maps in the compass app is no longer there.
-It appears there is no option to change the home screen wallpaper. I'm not going to touch it because (a) it is not in the wallpapers folder and (b) I like it.
-Zoom doesn't work in video
-Multitasking randomly populated your bar with apps when you first turn on the phone.
-The sounds (lock, unlock, mail, and 3rd party app notifications) are sometimes muted, even when the volume is on the highest setting and the phone is not on silent.
-Unlocking your phone after typing your passcode is much slower than 3.1.3
That's all i noticed at first. If you see any spelling mistakes here, I typed this on my iPad and my typing is not accustomed to it's keyboard.
