    Same problems here (bump)

    Same problems here. Sometimes the typing goes quick, but most of the times right after startup of the phone. Afterwards it goes slow. Strang thing: other apps with the keyboard go fast. Only solution I found for the slow sms is rebooting the iPhone. It will work faster afterwards, but the problem returns in no-time

    I have problems with the following

    1. Using Safari (Slow / Unresponsive)
    2. Contacts (Slow when searching or scrolling)
    3. Phone takes a while to launch (sometimes)
    4. Installing software directly on the iPhone

    Yes I have this problem too - its VERY annoying.

    Tried restoring to the new 2.0 build, hard resetting it - still the lag when looking through contacts.

    E.g. I view my contacts and hit a name.. it takes a few seconds to load up the contact! Its intorable as the OP says...

    Make sure you give feedback to Apple. We need them to be very clear this issue needs to be fixed asap. It's not a hardware problem. The firmware/OS has major performance issues that need to be addressed. The easiest way to comment on this issue is: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

    I'm getting time lag issues too (16GB 3G) but also noticed today a lag when trying to end a phone call (see thread below) - perhaps its the same issue here too.

    Well, I just watched all 3 of your videos and really feel for you.

    I have a brand new 16 MB iPhone 3G, received yesterday and I am not having typing lag problems at all... with my phone, I can type as fast as I can and the phone keeps up with me (the main problem is with my typos... lol).

    I have just recorded it with my Exilim, so am going to try and post it so people can see for themselves... watch this space.

    OK, so I have managed to post my video to my MobileMe gallery, see it here:

    I agree entirely with this post. However...

    One workaround that seems to help stability is doing a hard reset (pressing the home and power buttons simultaneously) every time after I install a new app, update an app, or modify the communications settings. It shouldn't be this way from a company whose products supposedly "just work," however, until the rumored new firmware is released, which will hopefully fix all of the widely-reported bugs, even if that's all it does (i.e, no new features), then this is the best we can do for the time being.

    Here's what I've noticed...
    The iPhone 3G seems to have little to no lag when you reset/re-boot it.
    Running Apple programs, such as safari, contacts, calendar, etc... Don't seem to slow it down.

    3rd party applications such as the Cube Runner seem to have adverse affects on the overall system performance. Taking a wild guess, I would assume that some 3rd party applications are not freeing the memory they use once you exit them. So if you run a few 3rd party applications, your performance drops like a rock. A reboot tends to take care of the problem.

    I can't find an application to monitor memory usage yet, but when one comes out, I'm sure we'll all be able to see which programs aren't playing nice with the iPhone.

    This is one of the reasons Apple doesn't like to open their platforms to 3rd party developers. Many developers don't have a clue about memory management, and cause more problems than they solve. If you don't want to loose performance, don't run 3rd party applications until this is sorted out...

    This needs to stay on the top of the forum, bump

    I am having the same problem with lag. I reset my iPhone, things are fine for a bit.

    Perhaps what we need is a task manager to eliminate all of the "location grabbing" applications that continue to work even when closed.

    It is starting to **** me off.

    Same with our 3 iPhones 3G's! Lets hope the next update fixes this, the lack of consistent 3G signals, and many more bugs!

    Ditto. I have an original iPhone, 1.5GB of free space left, and the lag in the contacts interface is bad enough that I resent having to use the phone to find e-mail addresses or phone numbers. The lag between action and result can be upwards of 4-5 seconds, which is intolerable.
  • G5gyrl Level 4 (1,465 points)
    Mine started to do this too! I did a restart on the iPhone and all is well now.

    (That's accomplished by holding the top and front buttons in at the same time until you see the Apple logo.)
