When you type in an address and hit enter, a new icon pops up on the left side of the place. I think it's orange, on the opposite side of the > to get more information. Tap it for street view. It's pretty awesome. Vast improvement over zooming in from overhead.

Wait, apple had a change log and listed specific fixes and updates? Oh yeah....they are slipping, 6 or 7 more years and we will be getting copy and paste on these bad boys!
Of course our batteries will no longer hold a charge.

Don't know if anyone mentioned it, but the EMERGENCY CALL is fixed too.
When I had my phone locked with a password and you click Emergency Call, you could dial any number before... Now it doesn't let you.

The street view is pretty cool, IF your area is on the system, wtf! NO locations in the uk?? whats that all about? In fact theres hardly any locations around the world. Am i being mean here and have google only just started the streetview or is that it?

My wife has a 3G and it is jailbroken but not unlocked. She is going to sell it. If we just do the standard "Upgrade to 2.2" from iTunes, will it just set the phone back to the unjailbroken status or is there a specific process I need to follow? I don't want to brick it.
I am keeping mine and don't really need 2.2 (yet)

Is anyone having problems with the update button on the appstore on the iphone after the upgrade it now just sits there loading and then says it cant connect when checking for updates?

Well I have an iPhone 2G, with unlocked via QuickPWN, I upgrade to the 2.2 firmware (not restore), and itunes show me the SIM CARD is not supported.
So I downgraded to 2.1 again.
Waiting for 2.2 unlock.

11-21-2008, 10:33 AM #54GPS Improvement
I did the 2.2 upgrade and the main thing I noticed is that the GPS initializes and works much better that before. It used to take quite some time, even when in a perfectly clear location outdoors. Now, even in my house, the map starts to locate and gives me the GPS beacon almost immediately. This is also true for the Path Tracker and GPS Kit apps as well. Curious if anyone else noticed improvements.

No, you don't need to activate your phone again. It just updates the firmware and keeps everything (contacts, AppStore apps, music, etc.) as it was before the update (except for your jailbroken apps).
