    Searcher is another...

    seriously.... you'd be amazed at the great stuff youd find if you just searched
    I just browse to via safari and it provides a search feature at the bottom.

Remove Kate through cydia/installer, then reboot and you should be fine.

    FYI, even if Kate says its compatible, its usually not. Have had nothing but problems with it post 2.1, would just avoid it personally.

    Hope this helps
    no help at all... not even indirectly related to anything I said.
    dont use kate. never have, never will.

    I never said I had any re-arranging nor problems hanging up the phone.

    Cool Issues on v2.2
    First off I am a VERY happy iPhone 3G owner (in my country it's unlocked - the baseband)

    I also use a Mac and with Pwnge Tools I couldn't be happier.

    YES I have bought apps (and searched a lot trust me) so i have MMS,Video,PowerSearch,Cut-copy-paste from and to e-mails,notes,sms and docs,vCard mailer,Spreadsheet AND use DiskAid to completely manage all files on my iPhone,etc etc)

    SO people please stop complaining! iPhone IS a SOLID device - it's just been handled very POORLY by Apple...

    I Do have 2 issues regarding the 2.2 version (to which i updated without a thought since the phone works much smoother and faster)

    iSSUE 1: Offline Maps DOESN'T WORK with v2.2 *

    *Ooops...I just answered this one by searching the net...
    It seems many people are working hard out there for iPhone software!
    You can convert your offline maps for iphone v2.1 to v2.2 here:


    (site is in russian, no worries just download the file)

    Many thanks to Offline Maps author, mask (maybe the best app ever for iphone)...

    ISSUE 2: LogoMe doesn't work (it's not up to date yet since it downloads some files first)
    I'm fed up with pineapples... Want my own (football team) logo when I reboot....Plus a full restore will take me two days (cydia packages,custom icons etc - though a nice trick is to take screenshots of all your categories,cydia and installer packages to make the process faster)

    Apart from this I can't LIVE without my iPhone and am happy to see it working faster on v2.2- especially categories....

    BTW is there another phone where you can navigate using google maps without internet connection? Don't think so....

    I upgraded both the baseband and the firmware since our company has at least 2 more years on our contract.

    I've found both the connection and searching for signal is worse than 2.1 and the old baseband. I was duped into the better call setup and signal that was claimed by Apple. I manage a grocery store and had the lay of the store as far as signal from my 2g thru my 2.1 3g and it is now worse.

    I have had more dropped calls since 2.2 than all the other firmwares combined. This is really getting ridiculous. I love my iPhone but it needs to function as a phone.

    all u 3g complainers seem to be the only ones.

    all 2g users seem happy with the update, minus features that the iphone hasn't had since day 1 anyway so no reason to complain. steve jobs said it him self. its a damn pc phone, why do u want mms crappy pic sending? it has email, tell ur friends to stop being cheap and update to a real phone and they can recieve the emailed pics.

    ill be updating my 2g iphone tonight and ill report back later with my results. all the complaints scared me but it seems to be all you unlucky 3g users.

    So far so good, Safari seems to crash less often, BUT, now my cookies apparently dont work anymore. I dont know if its just me, but my phone doesnt remember anything anymore as it used too. Even MMi acts crazy, I have to sign in everytime I go to it, and it bounces me back and forth from the iphone site to the regular site when I click on links.

    If I sign into the MMi iphone site and click a link, it takes me to the regular site. If i'm on the regular site and click the banner to go back to the iphone site, I have to sign in again, even if I havn't closed the browser.... its making me nutz!!
    BTW, I have my cookie setting on ''always'', I tried changing it to ''visited'', same thing.
    Am I alone on this??
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

    battery life seems to go away quickly, im not doing anything diff with my phone since ive updated and hacked but for some reason with in one school day it used to only b 50% depleted when now its dead and off by the time school lets out...

    I had an odd issue when i was using some ********* stuff where it would not update apps that i got from the appstore. After removing ********* i had no problems.

    I will say that turning off autocorrect is nice, before i was using the bossprefs app.

    Push appears to work a bit better, but it could be an isp thing too.

    Im not really impresses with street view. It would seem you have to guess where it is supported as there is no real indicator for it on the map.

    I would have prefered some tweaking to the gps tracking feature and navigation function to make it a bit more detailed.

    Otherwise, i see no majour improvements.

    It looks as though Apple has started locking the new games into 2.2 FW. Might want to watch this one if it is true. If someone with 2.1 wants to take a whack at installing monopoly. go for it. That's the latest app store release.

    I am having a problem with battery life being reduced to 10% overnight 2 nights running.
    I had a sniff around and it seems its pretty common so wondered if there is a fix around yet ?

    Here is what I read :
