iphones make me angry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
Just downloaded and installed the OS4 for my 16gb Iphonr 3G had no errors or anything installing it like some of the other guys have posted BUT!.... once installed my iphone has been very slow only word i can use to discribe it is "lagy" my iphone has only got like 6gb out of the 16gb used so it shouldnt be that i dont have many apps installed But why this lag? Once i click the home button to open the unlock screen 20 seconds later it will finally open i cant use my phone until this is fixed.

Mail: Just checked my mail inbox to find 2000+ emails which i have already deleted on the iphone and now ive got to go through and tick every single email to delete it wheres the "select all" button? the OS before OS 4 had this? and no way of getting emails which i have deleted back? once i click delete they are gone forever unlike the old OS it would put them in a deleted folder which i can click "empty" so it would be good if they could bring that back in the next update.

Thanks,

    There was never a Select All button in the Inbox only in the Trash folder. I know that because I always wanted one! And the Trash folder is still there - on the mail screen the top section is just inboxes - you need to go to the individual account in the group below and you get the Trash folder.

    Haen't noticed a huge deterioration in performance except in the camera which seems VERY slow now.

    I went and manually resync'd the apps after the upgrade. Now none of my 'not-preloaded' apps are coming up...

    KK just tested this out on my dads iphone and mine, When you have 2 email accounts or more the trash folder is not there but when you only have 1 email account the trash folder is below inbox

    I downloaded the os4 update yesterday to my iphone 3g, the phone is slower, seems like its sticking even. The worst thing is i have lost all my 200 plus contacts, my notes, all my email settings, text messages.This is so inconvienient. I phoned apple technical support and they could not help me, the lady even said no one had called her to complain about lost contacts etc.. and yet this forum is full of people with similar problems!! I wish I had thought to check this forum before carrying out the update! But you just think apple would have tested this extensively and I had no problems with last year's update/

    Hi guys,

    My 16GB 3G iphone experienced the same laggy issue when I just finished upgrading to the new OS. But somehow it works itself out after a few minutes. It works perfectly fine now although if you started any apps for the first time after the upgrade, it could take a few seconds, so be patient.

    Cheers

    My iPhone 8Gb 3G is soooo slow after "upgrading" to OS4. Unlocking the phone sometimes takes 5-10 seconds and the home screen icons literally stop converging halfway through and then 2 seconds later, finish off.

    Other things are ridiculously slow, such as opening and replying to texts. Good one Apple, maybe you want us all to upgrade to the iPhone 4 so that OS4 actually runs at a manageable speed?

    I have exactly the same issue. All upgraded and sync'd ok no problem but my 16gb iphone 3G is now so slow I'm even considering getting my old brick out so that I can at least make a call without needing to quesetion weather or not I have the time to do it. All apps take ages to open regardless of what they are, messaging slow, keyboard inputting slow, phone slow. I rely on this for business but until this is resolved i can no longer rely on it for that. I thought this was just me but everyone I'm in cotact with is experiencing the same thing.

    I do hope apple are reading this post and trust that they will very quicly respond with an update that will fix this problem and make this device what it used to be. I'll keep watching this post in the hope that someone has some further info.

    The things that you say are 'slow' after the upgrade appear to be faster for us, so I'm guessing that you haven't tried a 'reset' (not simply a 'power-off/power-on')?

    Give it a go: press and hold sleep/wake and Home buttons together, ignoring everything until the Apple logo appears 5-10 seconds later, then release.

    Good luck, and I hope that you'll end up as happy and impressed as were we.....

    All you got to do is hold the top button down and it will prompt you to turn off phone. You don't need to hold the "home button"

    Resetting did work well for me, and it actually feels much zippier than 3.1.3. No complaints there.

    However, it doesn't recognize my SIM card, so it went from being an iPhone 3G on 3.1.3 to an iPod Touch on 4.0.

    Anyone found their vibrate no longer working. Usually when I flick switch to silent I would feel the phone vibrate. I've missed a few calls today too whilst it was on silent. Anyone else having same problem. Also, os4 grinding. Calendar takes ages to refresh content. Arghh

    My 3G friends,

    After I updated my 3G, my life became in a Painful Slowdown compass... I just can't use my 3G at all...

    It is working too slow, I'm missing all my Photo Contact id... I just tried to restore my configuration and the backup just didn't work and I had to reinstall all my apps.

    So, welcome to the **** with iOs4...
