    IPhone 3GS OS3.1
    peeps, anyone here who updated their Iphone 3gs to the new OS 3.1? was their an issue?

    is it okay to download and install this latest OS (3.1) even though you have not updated to OS 3.0.1?

    I did not risk my phone into updating to OS 3.0.1 as I have read so many issues like the phone is dead and became a worthless brick to crashing and the likes so i did not update my OS 3.0 now a new OS was released (3.1) is it fine if i update to new version even without pasing to 3.0.1?

    any advise and inputs? before i jump into udating to the latest OS?

    Thank you guys in advance...

    Yes - I did today
    I downloaded & installed 3.1 today. I had no problems and my iPhone 3Gs is working great. The download did take a little longer than I anticipated but nothing extremely long.

    Updated my 3G the moment it was released and haven't noticed any problems with it. I also upgraded to iTunes 9 at the same time..

    I've noticed some lag. It sometimes seems I'll open an app and it will just lock up for 10-30 seconds and then work normally. It may just be my phone though.

    Raz0rEdge, baggss, thank you very much for the nice input, i thnk I still have to wait a little while to upgrade as my current OS 3.0 is working wonderfully like what baggs said there seems to be a alg time...

    though i have updated to Itunes 9, i notice a slow responce when you flip and choose between 1 app to another, unlike before when you click its there in an instant now its very slow. did you notice also? just asking..and because of this i have second thoughts yet ...

    thank you again for the wonderful input guys...

    The only thing that I have noticed is sometimes when I open the myspace app it gets stuck in the login screen. But thats not all the time.

    To be fair, I did a hard reset of my phone yesterday and it crashed. When I say crashed I mean it sat on the Black/White Apple screen for almost 15 min. When it finally came back on it worked fine. All the lagging is gone, texting is fine, Apps work well and it hasn't lagged/locked up since.

    I have no idea why though...

    The phone automatically resets upon updating. I think the recovery from the crash is what helped me.

    I just did the update myself today. The only issue I have noted (and I see other folks online complaining about this) is that the keyclick volume on the keyboard is dramatically reduced, and there does not seem to be any way to get it back to its original volume. Neither the soft nor the hard volume controls seem to have any impact on it. I am sure that it is a bug, and will be corrected in the inevitable next release.

    Or, perhaps like the awful, awful glaringly WHITE background on iTunes 9, it is Apple's intent to reduce the volume of keyboard clicks? I sure hope not!
