I really hope Apple fixed the Safari instability because it gets real annoying real fast when Safari crashes on you every couple of minutes.

Never had any Safari issues...

I'll install in a few days when I get home and have a better connection.

i actually just played with the google street view. it worked ok for me. i haven't tried safari yet to see if the crashing problem was fixed. i had heard they were going to include a horizontal keyboard for texting, but i guess not.

I'm glad you're able to use it but I still don't see it on my phone. Is it supposed to be with the Maps app? Or does it have its own icon?

It only works in certain areas. If you type in a street name it will drop a pin at that location. If street view is available for that location it will show a little person icon.

Here's a screenshot:

I believe it's only if you live in a large area. My location doesn't have any of the bus/transit times.

If you click directions on the bottom it should be the middle tab on the top.

also with the update people should see fewer dropped calls and fewer call setup failures, which was a huge issue on Apples part when the iPhone 3g first came out, slowly apple has been getting their stuff together, but they still have a long way to go.

buggy software by apple.... everyone blamed AT&T when it was Apples problem all along with the dropped calls. Im just making sure the fingers are pointed to the problem....thats all.

its buried way down at the bottom this review... under "minor tweaks"

Some apps will need to be updated by their developer(s) to be compatible with 2.2. I've noticed much better battery life, Safari speed and an increase in speed in general. I couldn't get Safari to crash last night at all, which is a big improvement.

A long way to go? I think not. AT&T is still the carrier here. Dropped calls are still higher on AT&T than on Verizon. My work phone is with AT&T and has a higher dropped call rate than my iPhone. Be careful where you point fingers, they need to be pointed in multiple directions. From my experience, AT&T pretty much sucks.
