    I don't have any battery Problems, but when calls last longer than 10 Minutes, the iPhone 3G gets extremly warm. Calls that have duration of more than 20 Minutes are heating up the iPhone 3G extremly. Almost couldn't grab it anymore.

    My iPhone 3G has also been dreadfully slow after iOS4 update. Basic iPod functions like 'skip track' causes the device to freeze briefly. I am also aware of the device becoming very hot too after only using it for a few moments. Most annoyingly however is that I will charge the device overnight, and by midday it will need another charge. This is also when I have only been using the device to read emails and make a few quick calls.

    PLEASE can this be addressed with the next UPDATE. It feels like Apple only made the iOS4 software to function properly on iPhone 4 and 3GS, when both 2G and 3G are ONLY a few years old themselves. THIS blows somewhat...

    I'll add my voice to the slow performance problems. Glad to see it's not just me. I had no problems with the install and everything seems to be where it was pre-upgrade.

    I have seen two types of problems:

    1) General slowness. Click to open an email. Wait. Click on a picture. Wait. Open an app. Wait. Many very basic functions are slower and many apps are slower.

    2) Something I call "recycling". On the main page you select an app to open, you get the splash screen for the app and then after a wait (15-30 seconds) you get back to the main page instead of the app opening.

    Another unhappy iphone 3gs ios4 upgrader. i really relied on my 3gs and it was a pleasure to use. i was about to get my wife an iphone but then i upgraded and she said she doesn't want one after all the problems i've been having, including many on this thread. IN particular
    -performance - almost to the point that its not usable
    -unstable (cannot get cellular data connection, cannot make / receive phone calls, notes revert to old text after i just edit them, locks up randomly etc)
    -overheats - when battery gets low
    -signal strength indicator wrong - even with 4.0.1 which was supposed to fix that particular issue
    -sync problems - multiple copy of notes now going into inbox on my mac
    -and "not compatible" message when plugging in the ORIGINAL APPLE charger & headphones supplied with the iphone and which I've used since last year without a hitch!

    Ok giving Apple the benefit of the doubt, let's assume there are some subtle technical issues that could take time to track down. In the meantime, ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEMS AND LET PEOPLE DOWNGRADE! I don't know if the net gain of iphone4 customers will outweight the net loss of iphone 3gs customers but I would think the loss of confidence of those 3gs customers counts for something?

    I've updated my 8GB iPhone 3G to iOS4 and am also experiencing the following problems:

    *SLOW! Incredibly poor response, in all areas
    *Decreased signal strength. Signal performance has been reduced and dropped calls have increased (insomuch as I never experienced this problem before)
    *Battery life: Since the update I'm lucky if I get more than 3hrs out of the phone, with wi-fi switched off.

    This needs a fix from Apple ASAP. In the meantime I need to downgrade this back to an OS that actually works.

    Mine takes 5 mins + to reboot.
    constant app crashing.
    takes around 30-40 seconds to start typing when writing a text.
    Camera takes at least 1 min to start up.
    I'm seriously considering jail braking if apple don't get their act together!!!!

    Fellow 3G'ers: Apple is aware of the issues as was reported extensively the past days throughout the media. Beta versions of the 4.1 update already showed good news as it fixes the issues we all complained about here. It's expected to be available very soon.

    @ dadj77
    That is encouraging, but it would be nice if Apple would put a simple notice up on the website that states this.

    To me, their refusal to publicly acknowledge the issue is infuriating. I feel it's the height of arrogance, to deliberately withhold information from their customer base. No, instead they prefer to let us bang our heads against the wall.

    My blind loyalty to Apple is at an end. I no longer believe that Steve Jobs and crew give a rat's *** about my experience with a Mac product. It was all an illusion, and there really isn't all that much difference between Microsoft & Apple afterall. Maybe it's healthier for me to finally have my eyes opened like this. Thank you Steve Jobs, for finally revealing your true colors.

    my iphone 3G is too slow since upgrade to OS4, even with the recent upgrade!!!!!
  • Dee Cee Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Updated to OS 4 on 3G and it's the worst! Slow, choppy, crashes (just what Apple says Flash will do)...hmmm. SMS stutters at a sluggish speed, can't answer the phone with slider before it goes to voicemail....just really not worth it. My contract is already up, so I'm thinking EVO or something else.
  • scott.dunbar Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I just registered for this discussion board so that like many others I could complain about the terrible performance OS4 has had on the iPhone 3G. 2 years of nearly flawless enjoable use and now its virtually ruined! It hangs so often and for sooo long, easily a full minute sometimes, I just want to throw it against the wall!

    _*APPLE - PLEASE UPDATE OS4 TO RESTORE THE PERFORMANCE OF THE iPHONE 3G!*_
  • boosf Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)
    I too upgraded to IOS 4 and experienced horribly slow response even after deleting nearly 90% of the applications I had on my phone. Even trying to change settings took several seconds for the screen to appear. I finally had enough and went online to get info to go back to the last pre-IOS 4 version of the OS. I installed it and my phone is back to its old self. It works fine. Sorry, but IOS 4 is not for those of us with 3G phones.
