Our iPhones seem to work pretty well.  Sure there are a few zones around town where there is no data and it does tend to hang every now and again.  But, that is to be expected.  Overall it is as stable as any desktop OS out there and when it does crash it comes back pretty quick.  But maybe this isn’t normal? 

Apparently 2% of the iPhones out there got some bad software and need to get an upgrade. 

According to a Macrumors forum member, Steve Jobs wrote:

We are working on some bugs which affect around 2% of the iPhones shipped, and hope to have a software update soon.

So, how do you know if you got some bad iPhone software? 

Is this the baseband software only?  Wouldn’t the 2.0.1 updater have fixed this – it did update the baseband?  Dunno?  Now paranoia sets in.  Are you in the 2%? Every time your connectivity doesn’t work, you’ll have to wonder…

Realistically, if all of this is true, there will likely be a fix  showing up in the next software update.  Just don’t expect push notifications as well.
