My iPhone 3GGS has been working great since the upgrade to iOS 4, with the exception of a couple of small bugs. I have since upgraded to version 4.0.1 and the bugs are still present. I am posting the bugs here to see if anyone else has run into these, or if there are known fixes.

1. Slow to wake from black screen - Most of the time my phone now takes its sweet time to wake from sleep or a black screen when I press the Home or Power button. It does not always do this, sometimes it wakes right up, but I woul sya that it does this at least half the time.

2. Screen is slow to update and display caller details when ringing. I have noticed that since the update to version 4 my phone will light up, then start ringing/vibrating at least 3 seconds before it will display that there is an incoming call. There also is a delay of another coupld of seconds before it will display the caller details.

3. Similarly, I have noticed that if I have the apple headset in I will feel the phone start to vibrate in my pocket at least 2-3 seconds before the the appropriate ring tone starts to play. Essentially I can answer the call using the button on the headset before it actually "rings".

Again, these are not huge issues, but they are pretty annoying. Does anyone have any thoughts?

    I have an iphone 4 and am experiencing the same exact 3 issues you described. I have to press the home or lock button several times in attemp to wake it up more quickly but it seems to have a mind of it's own and wake up after several seconds regardless of what I do.

    All three are minor but are things that the phone does the most and should be snappy at! It gets annoying. Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    PS I have done a double hard reset and restored my phone. No dice.

    Same here for iPhone 4
    Got for a week and find it so slow to wake up. Didn't seem to have the issue on the 3GS. Retina Display issue?
