iPhone OS 3.0 | Available for Download

About time!

iPhone OS 3.0 is now available for download via iTunes.

Released @ 8:20pm Kuwait time.

UPDATE: Looks like we'll have to wait for a few hours (days maybe?!) to avoid the traffic on Apple's activation server. It's log-jammed so there's almost no chance for updating your iPhone / iPod within the next couple of hours unless you're one lucky leech.

I was trying to update since 4am Kuwait time up until 8:15pm but there was no sign of the update. Then later, exactly at 8:19pm on my watch the update came live.

Thanks for the guide. I got it from Wataniya. :)

Still can't seem to forward old messages =/

Abdul Mohsen : Have you tried hitting that BIG ol button on the top right corner of the Messaging session that clearly says "Edit" ? have you even tried copying and pasting the messages and send them as new if you couldn't find your way around forwarding ? :-)
Arabic isn't the only addition to the 3.0 firmware !! there's Cut/copy and paste, MMS, tethering , Voice notes, Push notifications and many more.

My point = we're getting all happy and psyched over features that the most basic mobile phones have had for years, minus bluetooth exchange and video call ofcourse.

And I dont know how I missed that BIG edit button, its so huge

thanks for that
