Originally written: Unfortunately, there are two major problems with the stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) support of iPhone OS 3.
1.) Many of you have already posted the previous/next remote controls not working. This, unfortunately, is a fundamental problem with the AVRCP implementation of OS3. Hope they’ll fix it in a next update.
2.) I’ve found a very hard-to-track and really annoying problem.
After trying most of the calendar & PIM apps out there, I ALWAYS come back to the Calendar app that CAME with the iPhone. It's the best & most reliable.

(in-call view: as can be seen, you can dynamically switch from the Bluetooth headset to the iPhone.
With over 5 million downloads, AroundMe must be one of the more popular apps. It's free, and it directs you to the nearest banks, bars, coffee shops, gas stations, hospitals, hotels, movie theaters, parking, pharmacies, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, taxis, and theaters. Plus it gives you three-day weather and other features. It's amazingly easy to use.

YouTube support has been considerably enhanced in iPhone OS 3.
1, now, when you exit a clip (tap Done), instead of returning to the list of clips you were at, you’re presented two brand new tabs:

It also has a button “Rate, comment or flag”. As you may have guessed, this allows for rating and commenting (too bad the latter doesn’t work in landscape).
