    I am also having several issues with my 3G iPhone after updating to OS4. I have tried the double reboot, removed all the apps from the folders and shut down all open pages in safari. I am so disappointed in Apple, all this crap that I have to do reminds of trying to work in windows. I thought I was done with all the headaches when I switched to Mac's but I guess with success comes arrogance. welcome to Macrosoft! Or maybe I'm just holding it wrong. Never thought I would feel this way about Apple.

    Try doing exactly what I did, see my post a few posts back. Mine is working fine now, I was early 3G adopter.

    absolutely! It is really terrible! How can I get the previous software back on???

    I'm on O2 in the UK and spoke to them yesterday and was told Apple are going to be sending out new software to rectify all the recent problems (within two weeks I was told) has anyone else been told this or is aware of this? Or was I told this just to get me off the phone after being told the issue I have with my phone (sooooooooooo slow, 7-10 seconds to open a text since I "upgraded" to OS4) isn't their problem....

    all this is rather odd - double re-boot worked well for us, and others, why not for everyone ?

    OK, the 3G could be a touch slower than before, but wouldn't argue the difference - it all seems to work just fine ... Mail, Safari, iPod, Camera, Messages, Phone, Contacts, Calendar, Google Earth & Maps, EyeTV ... about a hundred apps in all, of which we've tried maybe half so far (no games) ...

    I'm back running a smooth and speedy 3.1.3. Followed the instructions for the downgrade on Livehacker. I had only an old backup from last year on 3.1.3, so I lost all SMS and stuff. But: All reconfiguring seems better than keeping an iOS 4 that's simply incompatible with "old-fashioned" hardware. A very sad story from Apple. My "magic device" was turned into a Zombie-Phone.

    The ugly: You have to check now before any App-Update, if 3.X is still supported. Two of my apps (Mobile Butler and Mariner Calc) seem to only compatible with iOS 4. Burnt money!

    And: No word from Apple to this! Disappointing.

    Same issues here as everyone else.
    I've reported it to Apple, as should everyone else affected.

    Interestingly, the double reboot has worked for me also so far (time will tell if the performance remains ok). I had done this a few days ago, the only difference being that I logged in and checked my texts before doing the 2nd hard reset, that didn't work at all. So it seems a double reset has to be straight after one another... why I do not know.

    Obviously this needs to be fixed sharpish by Apple, it does not meet my expectation for their products. I'm disappointed.

    Same here. I did the upgrade to OS4 and my phone is sluggish in every aspect. Loading Apps either Apple or third party ones lag for 5 to 15 seconds. Some hang. Some don't open at all. According to friends that have received my texts, their phones are telling them that there is a picture attached when I didn't send any pictures. I'm going to attempt the downgrade and wait to see what Apple does to improve this upgrade. I'm not holding my breath though.

    My frustration is getting the better of me, my iphone3g is now on par with Windows Phone 7. Slow and s**t.

    If you can't respond with a viable solution for better software for an iphone3g, at least give us a way to revert back to the old software (without losing everything on my phone)

    Stop being a money-hungry corporate entity and help the people who have supported apple products - your users.

    I tried retoring etc, did nothing to speed up my Iphone 3G, its true what people say though, the 1st time you open a app or camerea, or setting etc, it takes ages, try it again & its normal speed indicating the OS is frantically killing things not required in memory so a memory issue (not the the total amount but the stuff used to execuse programs) im presuming they use faster seperate memory for this or reserve x amount) Ive tried multiple hard resets, as well as removing most of me text messages & photos, all seems to make none or very little difference, it seems better memory resource managment needed to be implemented when designing the firmware. from apples lack of any kind of acknowledgement of the problem (like usual) i think we can expect little or no help (its took them 3 years to work out how to fix the iphones 3G problems, without admiting it was a problem till they had a fix (expected in a few weeks)
  • Christopher John Hunter Level 1 Level 1
    before going back, have you tried a double re-boot it's dead easy to do, and takes not very long - and it's sorted the problem for many people ...

    double reboot = press power button and home button at the same time, hold until 'phone reboots (ignore the power-off prompt slide bar, keep holding) ... let 'phone start-up normally (Apple logo) ... when it's all done & ready for action, immediately do it again - ie: repeat this process (don't be tempted to do anything in-between) ...

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one whose iPhone 3G got substantially slower after iOS4. Wasn't this supposed to be an improvement? Is Apple forcing us to "upgrade" phone as well??? Text messaging got painfully slow, internet browser is even slower and I get frequent call drops in regular use and when synced via bluetooth to my car stereo. I think iPhone 3G users should've been excluded from this "upgrade". I love my iPhone and I can't believe a new OS would render it as slow as a Nokia N95!!!

    It only applies to Mac users. That's VERY bad!
  • Smythley Level 1 Level 1
    Same problem here as everyone else...Have read through the 15 pages of replies. Filled out the customer support form letting them know my lack of satisfaction. Tried the double dice.

    I did a system restore, but I did it from a backup.

    If I were to do a system restore as a new phone, what would I lose? The only thing I am worried about is the phone numbers. I don;t care about pictures, music, etc. I just need to make sure I don't lose the numbers.

    NB: restore not the same as reboot ...
