Currently Being ModeratedSep 7, 2010 2:30 AM (in response to KarinaMay)Hey there,
It's known this update will address many performance issues on iPhone 3G. After taking some time to test, the most obvious difference was UI responsiveness. The UI didn't get stuck nearly as much on an interface element or when trying to enter text as it did with earlier versions.
However, you can't still think that iOS 4 will run as smooth on your iPhone as if you were running it on an iPhone 3GS or 4.
Hope this helps!

Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2010 7:48 AM (in response to franciscoandre)But there is zero reason not to think 4.1 can run as smooth as 3.x did on a 3G.
(with all the probs 4.0.x had on the 3g, Apple really should have made a patch to go back to 3.x. Not having that or a fix was/is just disgraceful)Mac Mini & Macbook, & iPhoney, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Where's my Convertable laptop/tablet mac???????
Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2010 8:38 AM (in response to KarinaMay)Now the 3G faithful must wait for 4.1 to be released. Was it supposed to be today? I'll give this one a shot, and if it doesn't leave me with a happy feeling, I'll look towards a downgrade to 3.x...Custom-built, Windows 7, x64
Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2010 9:21 AM (in response to jea77)Jea77 - I downgraded easily and it has been fanttasic to have my sweet iPhone back in tip top condition.
I am reading lots of reviews of 4.1 saying it is back to speed but ...
I still have a concern because 4.01 and 4.02 both showed over time. Rebooting improved speed a lot, only to slow down again after a day or too.
These reviews only look at a fresh 4.1 and not a 4.1 after 2,3 or even 5 days.
We need a report on that aspect before I would upgrade.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2010 10:17 AM (in response to Howardsweb)It's out! (at least according to engadget: http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/08/ios-4-1-is-live-available-to-download-right-n ow/).
Howardsweb - you do make a valid point; at first blush, when I installed 4 on my 3G, it seemed faster, but over time it did bog down. I'm a glutten for punishment, but I'll probably download and try it to be a long-term test case. But its good to know the downgrade is easy; did you run into any app issues? I'm guessing some probably won't work after downgrade?Custom, Windows 7, x64
