    Some nice features in this version! Looking much better IMO, I need to play with it more, to see if this would suffice me. I would much prefer my default Facebook destination be the iPhone.

    I use to use Facebook about once a week, now I find myself going there more often because of having basically full access to features of the site on the go. I love being able to take a photo of my girlfriend at the beach and then upload it straight away to my profile. Also with the event of more and more people getting on Facebook the “What are you doing now?” status bar has more meaning because people can update what they are doing where ever they are, not just when they are behind a computer.

    Hehe, yeah my house is right in this spot where i get full 2G reception, and a little 3G. I think because 3G is preferred I get switched to that, and when that goes low it switches back. Its constantly switching between the two. Very annoying!
