    1st iPhone; 3 times I think since iPhone came out. still on 1.0.2 FW

    2nd iPhone; once to activate and unlock. still on 1.0.2 FW.
    May have to do another one to upgrade to 1.1.1 FW for international keyboard feature. Still reading to see if safe to do so since I used Independence at activate with non AT&T sim and unlock with Anysim 1.1

    Between the 3 different phones that i have had, ive restored at least 20 times. Most of them were from when i upgraded to 1.1.1 with it unlocked and while downgrading.
    My latest restore was a couple days ago and it was because "customize" turned my iphone into an ipod when i tried to revert to the backup settings.

    Same here. About 4 or 5 and most of it is 3rd party apps causing a weird side effect. Like one time I deleted a third party app and for whatever reason, my photo and camera icons disappeared. The other time, my itunes/ipod icon on the dock left and went on the spring board and would not return to the dock. So I had to restore. I'm a master of that now and have everything saved just incase I need to restore.
