    Laggy iPhone 3G? what??
    Ok so the vast majority of the time when I get a text message and click reply as I begin to type the phone lags immensely. Most of the time pressing the home button and going back into SMS fixes this problem but sometimes it doesnt and its becoming more frequent. Is anyone experiencing this? Please any feedback would be appreciated. its bumming me out and is very frustrating.

    I get lagging when a page is loading and I want to type on MF. It's a very common problem, especially if you have iTunes running or something else. There's what, a 400MHz processor in there? It's certainly no Core 2 Duo under the hood.

    Thats another issue that also confuses me, I'm afraid to open up apps cuz theres no task manager I have no way to shut them down if I don't want my phone to lag..

    You shut them down by holding down the Home button until the app exits. I do wish there was a way to see what was running, though.

    Actually, most apps fully close when you exit out of them. There are only a few that actually run in the background, such as the Phone, SMS, and Mail apps.

    After updating to iPhone 2.0 I have noticed a couple of occasions when the iPhone has serious struggled to keep up with me. Initially it was just in the AIM app so I though it was just poor development. But now I have had it happen to me shen writing 2 different SMS - the system just started crawling - this is no word of a lie - I had written a complete text of about 40 characters and it was still outputting the first word to the screen - it was about 30 characters behind me.

    The next text was similar and I was starting to think 'oh no' what has Apple done to my iPhone. Third text was fine so not sure what was going on. I'm hoping it doesn't keep coming back.

    Oh and has anyone else noticed the icon for 'non-EDGE' coverage seems to have changed?

    This is NORMAL!!!
    The iPhone only has a 400MHz processor. I am not sure how much RAM though. You really can't expect it to immediately shut down an app and open another and keep going.
    Go buy a 400MHz PC or Mac and tell me if that lags. You're lying if you say it doesn't.

    Haha. That's what I was thinking... it's still utterly brilliant compared to my ancient Samsung - and I didn't buy it for speed, I bought it because it does everything I want it to, syncs properly to everything else, and looks well cool.
