Yep, the 3.0 upgrade worked better for me than the previous 2.X ones in terms of keeping media and apps. The previous upgrades stopped a number of my apps working until I reinstalled them

Found that 3.0 isn't really worth the hype.
Safari loads a tad quicker but thats about all i've noticed.

I disagree...for me, totally worth it.

(I have the Touch, not the iPhone.)

For the 2x playback on podcasts alone, 3.0 is worth it to me.

Spotlight search is also a great improvement.

Cut/copy/paste (finally) helps a lot.

Haven't used bluetooth headphones yet, but eventually.

And those are just the obvious things.

I agree with Jeff. In addition I also really like the variable audio scrubbing for listening to podcasts.

Yes, that's nice too, and the 30 second replay. Although I'd actually rather it be about 10 seconds.

Auto wifi login sounds good too, although I haven't had the opportunity to use that. Would be handy with a hotspot that has a login procedure.

It hasn't worked for me. Just have to wait a while while the screen flashes and it doesn't log in. Then I log in manually like before.

Eh, I hate having such a short viewing window... Rather see more and deal with the smaller keyboard.

Having a larger window is great, I just can't type for crap with the narrow keyboard. With the larger landscape one I have no problems.

There is an iPhone app that measures windspeed. Called windspeed and I recall it's 99c. I haven't checked it against anything gold standard, but subjectively it seems pretty accurate. You hold the microphone into the wind and it measures pressure. Then you turn the phone around and take a picture of your flight, and then call the fam to see if they need milk on the way home.

Nice idea, I've got one like it, but ambient noise is a serious factor. :(

No, the noise factor has been enough to drive me off.

I find my eyes and the fuzz on my ears are accurate as any wind meter. ;)

They say that people who compete at a high levels of a sport start with some genetic advantage (e.g. Lance Armstrong's heart). Maybe it's the fuzz on your ears! I can smell a research paper in the making! "The iQuad ear-fuzz factor".

I admit I don't use the wind meter much. It's got kewl factor, though.

I just did a phone upgrade. Went from a prepaid TracPhone to an iPhone 4S. For me, this was like going from a small bicycle with training wheels to the Space Shuttle. I was a computer programmer for a bank in the 60s, before real time processing, CRTs, and disk drives, when computers took up a whole room, needed a controlled environment, and a power sub station just outside the building. True story.

I got on Lynn's phone plan, so got the "good guy" price. She will get her iPhone on Monday when her upgrade time rolls around.

I just read this entire thread, and can see that lots has happened with these devices in the last three or four years.

Lots of learning to do, lots of "mousing around", and have been up until midnight most every night.

What a blast!

Yea, I upgraded to an iPhone 4 from a generic Motorola flip phone around the time of the 4S release. Such a difference. I don't even care about the apps so much as being able to be online from anywhere. It definitely gets used.
