iOS 4 bugs
Noticing any bugs or problems with your iPhone or iPod touch post-iOS 4 install? Got any iOS 4 issues? Well, we've got 11-pages of them being reported and trouble-shooted over on the TiPb iPhone Forum iOS 4 bugs thread -- everything from Google sync woes to pixelated pictures to missing apps to bloated "other" partitions to... well, go check it out for yourself.
We'll also repeat our standard advice:
- Delete and re-sync any data or content (like pictures, movies) that seem buggy.
- Remove and re-add any services (like email accounts) that are causing issues
- Uninstall and re-install any apps that are giving you problems
And if all else fails, there's the nuclear option:
- Restore your iPhone clean (i.e. not from backup).
It's a huge pain in the @$$, especially if you have tons of settings to re-tweak and content to re-sync (and if a lot of your data doesn't live in the cloud, but when a whole new version of the OS comes out, it can sometimes be your last, best hope for a fix.
Before you consider anything drastic though, get over to the TiPb iPhone Forum official iOS 4 bugs thread and see if the experts there can't help get you sorted first.

Can't reinforce advice given above. Don't be hasty when syncing, let it back up your phone first.
The only issues I found out are interface and related to folders and the "opened" apps list.
I had that problem.
Try re syncing but it may take a while be patient lol
Hopefully will get resolved soon
Not a good update for my 3G.
it was faster on 3.1.3
i have 3gs
used to be able to go all day and late at night and not see the "20% battery life warning." pop up. now I see it after a few hours.
I think when people are comparing battery life though they should look at their actual usage in the settings under General->Usage as it can be easy to play around with the phone more than you realize after just having updated. Losing about 25% of battery for every 2 hours of actual usage was normal for me before the upgrade and I could usually get about 4 hours usage plus 20 hours of standby or nearly 48 hours of standby if I hardly used it and this is with an 18month old 3G.
Google Sync seemed a little glitchy to me earlier, but for all we know the Google Sync servers could be struggling with all the iPhone users that just upgraded and are refreshing all their email, contacts, and calendars. Seems to be OK for me now.
I also experienced a fast-draining battery after upgrading, but after a complete shut down and restart, it works great.
Gmail (Exchange) seems ok now after 24hrs of not sending/receiving at all.
Mail app opens in non-default Hotmail account every time for some reason too.
Gmail calendar was previously set up with different coloured seperate work/home appointments and now only has them all mixed into a universal one. It's lost loads too, but not all.
Keep getting voice recognition even though I'm not pressing anything.
Starts playing iPOD songs all of a sudden.
My iPHONE has a life of is own since iOS4.
