    I haven't upgraded yet from 2.2.1 and I am wondering whether it is worth it to upgrade now or wait for 3.1.
    I have a non-jailbroken 1st Gen Touch and I am concerned about the problems others have had with wifi reception being worse after the upgrade.
    I'd like to hear how others with a 1st Gen Touch feel about the upgrade. Worth it or not? Problems they have had, etc. Thanks.

    I have a 1st gen and 2nd gen and I didn't notice a decrease in wifi speed since I upgraded to 3.0. It's worth it I because of all the new features. You're going to have to install 3.0 anyways to install 3.1. I haven't noticed any problems at all with the 3.0 upgrade.

    I'd recommend it. Copy & paste is a life saver and push notifications are so convenient. If you have any problems upgrading or jailbreaking, the solution is probably here. Just make sure you search before you ask.

    Your games should be updated to ensure OS 3.0 compatibility, you should contact the developer to make sure he patches the problems.

    There was a note from them saying they are working on the problem. The problems were crashing after sending a message and answers are black when taking a quiz. Both of which suck but I trust a fix is coming.

    Well, with my ipod touch first Gen 3.0. I had some many problems with random decrease in battery that I had to go back on 2.2.1 but with my iphone. I have no problems at all with the firmware.

    Thanks...I really appreciate the feedback. I guess I don't really care about the extra features like cut & paste, etc. but the extra pages would be nice.
    My main issue is that a lot of my games and apps have updates that require 3.0, and I feel like I will get left behind if I don't upgrade. I've read that only 5% of Touch users have upgraded to 3.0...so I guess I'm not the only one who has been procrastinating. (It has nothing to do with the ten bucks, by the way.)
