You would have thought that Apple-a-Day would have kept the software bugs away, by not releasing iOS4 to 3G units considering the overhead. Effectively, Apple have rendered my 3G phone less useful. This could be seen as a pernicious activity.Macbook Pro C2D, Mac OS X (10.6.1), iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedJul 3, 2010 10:28 PM (in response to Bejan Sadeghian1)I'm having all of the same issues since upgrading my 3G to iOS4. It's terrible, and I've gone through Restore several times. Every application is responding so poorly that it feels like the phone is getting ready to crash permanently.
Does anyone know how to dump the upgrade and restore to the original OS on 3G?iMac, MacBook, iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 4, 2010 1:13 AM (in response to Lightkeeper)I experienced the same general slow down on my iPhone 3GS. I made a firmware restore using iTunes and it seems to work better now.iPhone 3GS, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedJul 6, 2010 8:18 PM (in response to Gorgoo)How do you update the firmware? I don't want to do a total restore and lose everything.
I'm having the same issues. I had no problem installing OS4, but it's sluggish in many ways. Sounds like many people are having the same problem.
I've got 0 music, 2 small videos, 120 photos, 49 apps and 11.4GB of 14.3GB available, so it's not like I'm using up all the memory!3gs, iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2010 8:07 AM (in response to jodzeee)If you restore your iPhone as a new phone (not from a backup), you will simply lose your SMS massages and some application data such as game high scores.
e-mail and wi-fi password information will have to be re-entered but apart from that you won't lose much else at all.
You simply have to sync your phone once you've restored it and all your contacts, calendar, music etc will be copied back over from iTunesI can only help one person each day...and today is not your day, ...tomorrow doesn't look good either!
Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2010 8:29 AM (in response to Bejan Sadeghian1)I'm sorry you're having so many problems.
I too am experiencing a significant reduction in performance and speed both which my phone operates and functions.
I truly hope that Apple is working on a fix and our woes will be addressed in an software upgrade.Powermac G5 - 2x3 GHz Dual-Core Xeon with 14 GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2010 8:56 AM (in response to jsappo)Read my post and do what I've suggested.
I have a 3GS 32GB and my wife has a 3GS 16GB.
Both run iOS4 flawlessly so there is nothing to fix from Apple.I can only help one person each day...and today is not your day, ...tomorrow doesn't look good either!
