So, now we have another fiasco from Apple: aparently a big time security flaw. They "say" they will fix it in the update soon to be released, 4.1.
Yeah . . . and I've got a bridge to sell ya. It's been how long since we heard a promise the current OS would be fixed?
Apple On Latest iOS Exploit: "We're Aware Of This Reported Issue, We Have Already Developed A Fix"
"We've discussed the exploit affecting iOS devices and that it should theoretically be a simple fix, but now Apple has gone on record and said that it has a solution already:
We're aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.
No word on when the fix will come, but at least it's supposedly already figured out. [9 to 5 Mac]"IMAC 24"; POWERBOOK G4 15"; 3 iphones: 2x3G, 1x3GS; iPod, iPod classic;, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Palm Tungsten; Linux Ubuntu on Sony Vaio; Dish box; all current updates applied
Currently Being ModeratedAug 4, 2010 7:14 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)I brought my iPhone 3G to the Apple Store in Houston, TX at the Galleria to get service because OS4 slowed my 3G to a crawl; 20 seconds to open native apps like iPod, Maps, Messages, and Contacts.
I was told that there was a solution... I could buy a 3GS or a 4. When I said I was not willing to give Apple more money to to deal with a problem that Apple caused, the representative told me she was sorry there was nothing to do. She then said "you have a slowly dying iPhone". I said if I was going to have to spend money for a new phone and sign up for two more years with AT&T, maybe I should buy an Android phone. Her response was great... she said "well, maybe you should.
So I did! I LOVE MY ANDROID PHONE... bought the HTC Aria... blazing speed, easy to use!PC, Windows XP Pro, iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedAug 4, 2010 7:39 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)It's taken me the better part of a week to read through this entire discussion, and I've tried every recommendation to speed up my 3G.
Sadly, the only thing that works is to disable a good portion of my phone's functionality and then perform 4-5 hard resets throughout the day; when ever the phone starts lagging. The phone will have a little bit of zip for a while, but after running one or two applications, it slows to a crawl again.
I'll limp it along for now... but I'm paying more attention to potential replacements.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 6:28 AM (in response to iphones make me angry)Apple seems to have caught up with Microsoft in the creation of bad software and ignoring customer problems. Very sad! Add me to the list of long time apple enthusiasts with an almost non-functional 3G whose disillusionment grows with each passing AT&T bill.
APPLE PLEASE FIX THISiPhone 3G, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 11:45 AM (in response to iphones make me angry)This tip worked with my iphone 3g.
Seems unlikely, but my phone is back to its old speed. We'll see how long it lasts, but the fix only takes 10 minutes or so. Read this article:
I don't know how long the speedup will last - I assume I will have to do process occasionally, but one day after doing this my iphone is still running well. As well as it did under 3.x.x
Hope this helps others!!MacbookPro 15, Snow Leopard. iPhone 3g w/ ios4
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 2:26 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)I solve the problem you just need to go to Settings -> General -> Date & Time then turn (set Automatically) off then go back to Settings -> Wallpaper then change the wallpaper to the first one on the top then turn the iphone off wait 2 mint then turn it one on.TOSHIBA, iOS 4, Vista
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 3:42 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)Lo and behold, angry iPhone 3G users! Apple has released iOS 4.1 Beta 2 to developers and the report is that is COMPLETELY SOLVES the iPhone 3G lag issues!! Hoooray!! In fact, most report that it's faster and more responsive than ever before
Now we just have to sit by patiently and await for it's public/consumer release.. which, I hope, will happen before I lose it one day and run my 3G over
I'm not sure if i can post links, but just google "iphone ios 4.1" and you'll get plently of info on it...13" Aluminum MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8), JB iPhone 3G iOS 4.0.1
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 10:09 PM (in response to x1daydreamer6x)I just downgraded back to 3.1.3 and the iphone 3G is back to normal. It was a pain to load everything back the way it was before. I'm going to wait 2-3 weeks after the 4.1 release to see if everything is still kosher. I don't want to go through downgrading again.HP, Windows 7
careful what you say, they deleted my post after asking why cant you allow 3g users and option of downgrade so we dont have to do all the work just so we can use our phones.macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 11:28 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)4.0.1 only helps how the phone signal is calculated ( I didnt see any improvment in 3G signal & was just as sluggish doing everything else as in 4.0)
I downgraded to 3.1.3 its not too hard to do (cant give you links - apple dont want you to downgrade - but do an internet search for "iphone 3g downgrade 3.1.3" or remove iphone OS4...
basically all you need is the correct 3.1.3 firmware (might be in your recycle bin - iOS4 deletes your old one in the hope you dont find it - if not you can download it from a few places, make sure its the one for your model - iphone 3G)
hold left shift when clicking restore & it'll ask you which one you want to use (otherwise itll be the same 4.0.1 or whatever you used last, point it at the 3.1.3 one)
let it restore & you need recboot to finish it (& libUSB too)
when I did it I lost everything so make sure you back up everything 1st.
but yeah, 3.1.3 works just like you remembered it & all the apps you updated to be 4.0 compatible still work with 3.1.3iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 3.1.3, works better than iOS4 (downgrade)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 11:30 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)My iPhone 3G is now under iOS 4.0.1 very difficult to use. Very long delays quite unexpected and irregular (editing a note, sometimes it goes fast, sometimes the system freeze for 10-20 seconds), viewing a page with Safari (also sometimes fast, sometimes stalling apparently, even the Home button becomes ineffective). Stange fact is starting the upload of the page is normal and stalling appears at the end.
Some apps open immediately sometimes, then later in the day, it takes 10 seconds (looks like an eternity...) to open, etc.
I tried with mixed results all the tips given here and elsewhere, reset, hard reset,... . The best configuration I could find was to deselect most of spotlight categories which is not really a good solution as I rely on Spotlight. Doesn't stall as often but still happens.
Anyway it is not perfect (it was before the upgrade).
This is a big price to pay to have folders and a centralized mail system.
Would glad go back to previous iOS system.
Hope there is a solution in the works.MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo, MacBook Core 2 Duo, PowerBook G4, iMac G4, iMac G3, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 2.33 GHz 3 GB RAM disk 160 MB, iPhone 3G 4.0.1
Currently Being ModeratedAug 5, 2010 11:40 PM (in response to iphones make me angry)The result could be in iOS 4.1 but keep on complaining
