Since I updated to iOS 6 from iOS 5 my Wi-fi connection does not work unless my iPhone 3GS is next to my wireless router!
I still have the issue of my phone turning it self off, blanck screen when making calls & unable to use my 3G otherwise my phone will turn off. These probelms started to occur once I updated to iOS 5 and now even worse since updating to iOS 6!
Please help? I would like to downgrade back to iOS 4 on my iPhone 3GS if possible!
Strting to dislike Apple becaue of this!

I have recently been given an iphone 3g and the current version is 4.2.1. I want to update it to a newer version as some of the apps i want cant be used without the newer ones. I have tried plugging it into my computer but thats done nothing. Do you know how i can update it??
Thank very much

iPhone 3GS is the oldest device supporting iOS5 officially. If you want to install iOS5 on iPhone 3, then I suggest you googling "How to install iOS5 on iPhone 3". It WILL be VERY SLOW tho!

Tammy_Adam's suggestion worked for me, too. Performance is still a little slower than when the phone was new and running iOS 3, but about 5 times faster than before.

My Iphone 3GS works again properly (with Icloud and all other features ! after update to IOS6 AND replacement of battery AND keeping running apps on background as small as possible + download APP Battery Doctor !
The main trouble has been that upgrade to IOS5 which was an very large update, demands a lot of energy from the battery. Most computers crashes due to battery failures and exhausted batteries. Therefore it is extremely important to maintain a battery in good condition and batterydoctor helps how to do it. Same for MacBooks ...
hope this info helps to mitigate all frustrations of Iphone 3GS owners (alike me)
