    After you restored did you set up the phone as NEW in iTunes? If not that's what you need to do. What apps have you installed?....

    not sure what that means. I installed itunes 8 and it asked me if i wanted to upgrade my phone to 2.1. I hit yes and off it went. Backed up my phone, upgraded and restored info. Everything looked right from there. I had jailbroken (with ziphone) in 1.4. Now just non-jailbroken 2.1 only apps i have are phonezap FROM APPSTORE.

    Ah.. there's the problem. If you hit the UPGRADE button instead of the RESTORE button it can cause lots of issues when you re-jailbreak. Your best course of action is hit RESTORE. Then use quickpwn to rejailbreak... then plug back into iTunes. When iTunes asks if you want to set up a NEW iphone profile or set up from a back-up you choose NEW. Then resync your contacts and pictures or whatever.
