Said guide features large but tasteful graphics, featuring "Steve's iPhone" no less. Taken together with the MobileMe News blog, could this finally be a sign that Apple is taking customer communication at least a tiny bit more seriously?

I live in CT, where my 3G works in places where I can get the signal. After being convinced by a friend, I upgraded to 2.0.2 on Fri. after work. Sat. me and some friends decided to visit Boston for the day.
So we're sitting outside at a restaurant directly across teh street from Red Sox stadium. I look at my phone and I have FULL bars and the big 3G symbol showing. I'm thinking, "sweet! I'll take some photos and upload them to Facebook. Well, to my surprise, I can't connect to anything, facebook, email, webpages in mobile Safari. And this is with full bars and 3G. I rebooted my iPhone and same problem. So I turn of 3G and behold, I'm able to connect to the web.
What a cluster%uck all this is turning into.
Now that I'm back home in CT, I'm able to connect to the web with 3G service.
This sucks because you don't know who to blame? Apple for rushing the Infinion chip, or AT&T's network. But other countries 3G networks are reporting similar probs.
Who knows, just SOMEBODY come up with a fix soon!
