    Hello fellow Stackers. I've been here with the Stacks for a while now, but am new to the iPhone world. I have a 16GB 3G, and when I just plugged it in via USB to my laptop...it was like it just turned off...and now I can't get it to do anything!! Can't do a battery pull on these bad boys either. Ideas?!?

    Okay, what did you do to it prior to plugging it in? Jailbreak? Installed a new app(s)?

    What I suggest is to unplug it....hold the power button and the home button at the same time for about 10-15 seconds, that does a hard reset (kinda like a battery pull). Try it

    Mine has been shutting down like that ever since I upgraded to 3.1. The reset does do the trip but I have to admit, the whole thing is becoming annoying.

    li2327 - With all the reports of bugs and issues with the battery life on 3.1, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we see a 3.1.1 update shortly..seriously!

    I'm more than happy with 3.0.1, got the MMS working and my iPhone runs smoother than ever...it's gonna take a SERIOUS improvement to the OS for me to update. Besides, can't lose my beloved Jailbreak

    I have not experienced any issues with 3 dot 1 yet. I've been happy and everything is running smooth. When i doubt (any concerns) it's always best to start fresh with an clean install. Then add back items one at a time and after each new addition to the phone be sure the problems have not come back. I'm with beeshabo I think we will see another update fixing some of the concerns reported to Apple.

    Besides all that tho? I have always told people (PS-ers) don't just update for the sake of updating. See what the update has to offer and if it's not broke don't fix it.

    Now?......... Where is tethering? Did I miss something? I thought MMS and Tethering were coming? I had Tethering but when I updated the carrier file I lost it.
