iPhone 2.1 Firmware Update
A number of users have written to report that they had problems after updating to 2.1. There are no known problems with the 2.1 firmware and Nuevasync. However, the firmware update process seems to reset the sync state on the device which results in a 'resync' the next time the phone contacts our service. The resync operation is quite expensive and can take a while. Also at times a resync can fail if Google is busy. The users who reported problems subsequently let us know that their iPhones picked up sync again after a while. During the time between the firmware update and the next successful resync, your iPhone will loose its calendar events and/or contacts. Therefore we recommend updating your firmware at a time when loosing sync for a time will not cause major inconvenience. If in doubt, check your device sync status.
