Apple says bug fixes ahoy in new iPhone 2.0.2 firmwareWeird. Contacts still has a 2-3 second lag (though it varies), but phone has no lag when viewing contacts. Grand Dialer, which also brings up contacts, also has lost its lag.
...This update definitely fixed the lag in loading contacts in the Phone app. I can start scrolling as soon as the app appears now
Strangely, there's still a lag when loading them in the Contacts app...
I haven't noted any other changes. In Minneapolis-Saint Paul I haven't had the reception problems some markets have, iPhone reception is no worse than the previous 3G Nokia phone I had.
I wonder if it will fix my app update problem.
