    WARNING #1: Since the iPhone baseband will be updated to 05.11.04from the previous 4.26.08, this will mean that the ultrasn0w unlock method will be blocked. For those who want to have an unlocked iPhone on 3.1 DO NOT UPGRADE to 3.1 until ultrasn0w has been updated to work on 3.1 iPhones.

    WARNING #2: Since AT&T updated the carrier profile version, 4.5 from 4.0. This is will terminate the popular IPCC tethering hack that has been going around on the internet because of the arbitrary-looking "signatures" that are now attached to MMS and VVM.

    * Indicates that this was included in iPhone 3.1 Beta 1
    ** Indicates that this was included in iPhone 3.1 Beta 2
    *** Indicates that this was included in iPhone 3.1 Beta 3

    3.1 is an update of 3.0. So you have to pay for upgrading to the 3.0 tier.

    I guess MMS is there but doesn't quite work yet.
    As for the copy and paste, u can paste a # into you phone app when u wanna call someone. Now you can.


    My sources are the first three pages of google when I searched "iPhone 3.1 Fearures".
