You might all be blinded by signal strength bars, but I am still on a 3G (hope the Netherlands get the 4 next week!!!!) and the 4.0.1 update makes the 3G run much, much better. iOS4 on my 3G was more a robotic dance than smoothly swiping and opening apps and I was about to go back to iOS3 when 4.0.1 came out and made my starting depression go away :-)

Why did you use Wi-Fi to conduct the tests?

Once I updated, my phone lost all service. A hard reset did nothing to fix it. Luckily I backed up my iPhone 4.0.0 file so I can downgrade easily.

Anything? If the phone's software is now reporting that the signal is 1 bar instead of 3 bars, won't the phone be searching for better signal, thus using more battery?
