    4.01 has sped my 3G up again. It had been slowing to the point of being an embarassment, even before 4.0. Feels more like the phone I bought again

    Mine also became quite unusable after upgrading to IOS4 ... Apple please resolve this!

    Didn't work for me with iRecovery, after going back to 3.1.3, I couldn't restore from my Back Up, it asked to install new version of software,iOS4 and than do the back up.

    I guess I'll have a go at installing 4.0.1, it can't get any worse for 3G owners right?

    I'm really disappointed that Apple did nothing to address this issue at their press conference this morning. They took care of their '4' customers, now how about something for those customers that they are supposed to really love, their long time customers?

    FWIW, our recommendation would be to stay with 3.1.3 ... and go for 4.0.1 only if (like us) you blindly trusted Apple & updated to iOS4 & got stung / suffered the consequences - in such case, 4.0.1 will give some relief, 'though not enough to overcome the regret ...

    Mine is slow too!!!!! Glad to see that is happening to more people than just me, but not glad for our unfortunate luck. I think it is apple's way of pushing us to the newer product.

    had the same problem: SOLUTION that worked for me was to reinstall the software as a NEW PHONE. A pain because everything has to be re-configured, but NOW IT WORKS!!!

    Mine was very slow on 4.0 also, especially moving around home screen and everything in Safari. Even though the phone/iTunes crashed and I had to restore from scratch when loading 4.0 - and I lost all calendar info (see other post - still unanswered) - I was eager to load 4.01 to speed things up. The phone AGAIN crashed and had to be restored, and NOW it won't sync. Every time I try to sync, it hangs up when trying to load an app called "connect" - not even sure what that is. Any suggestions???

    lost calendar info' - you may find it's just a matter of getting Settings right again - in the upgrade process we found our Settings had been changed, for Calendar etc ... just a thought !

    Thanks to CJH in Lancashire for the suggestion, but I can't find anything to change in Settings. I'm now trying to re-load (sync) some of the video and music I had before. I check what I want in iTunes, click "sync" at the bottom of that window, and it re-does the same sync of irrelevant stuff it did before. Syncing has always been a problem with iPhone (compared to Palm OS), but now it seems totally non-functional - Is this a function of iOS 4.01?? I never had THIS problem before. I just changed to Win7 (forced upgrade from XP following deadly virus), so maybe that's part of the problem.? It looks like my regular backup of the XP system missed the iPhone backup folder, and none of the backups I've done in the 2 wks since installing Win7 has actually saved anything - or, maybe, they were wiped out when I tried to install iOS4.0/4.01??

    All the media buzz is about the hardware issues with the new phone, but this software mess seems to be at least as serious!

    I am also experiencing increased speed with the 4.0.1 update. But my phone still doesn't have the speed it did before. But like I said it's better with the newest update.
  • Lars Pasveer Level 1 (55 points)
    Everybody reporting better speeds with 4.0.1 on 3G's are deluding themselves, I'm sure? The 4.0.1 update does ONE thing and ONE thing alone: +"Improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display."+

    I'll stick with 3.1.3 until Apple documentation actually refers to improved performance on 3G devices.

    What a waste of time 0S4.0.1 was. I have downloaded it this morning with the hope it may iron out some of the 4.0 bugs out. Ha!, what was I thinking. Where my texting speed has increased a little, not much in the way of "repairs" done and more issues. The phone seems to flicker between speedy, then very slow. Still got problems with emails, making phone calls, crashing Apps. Now since the 4.0.1 update my battery drains like water in a holed bag and my signal strength which was a healthy full 5 bars on 3.1 and even 4.0, is now down to one (1) bar.

    Apple, this is past a joke now. Seriously, this is past a joke. Regardless if we have a iPhone 4 or 3G we are still Apple customers. I have been a Apple customer for a year without any problems. Then OS4 came out. And since this major fowl up with iPhone 4 and the OS4, I hope this is causing Apple as bigger a headache as it has for us customers. Only differnace is, Apple have money to dig themselves out of this hole, where as most of us customers don't. Why should we keep throwing good money after bad.

    3 weeks ago I had a 3G without a single problem, purchased because at the time the iPhone was ideal for what I wanted from a device. Now after seeing how Apple deal with it's customers, it's sloppy attitude and neglect with aftercare service, the issues with the software, customers (myself for example) spending considerable time searching for answers and ways to fix the bug created by Apple and to get my phone working again (some 7 installs of OS4/4.1). Now I wish I never had bought the thing. The ONLY light at the end of Apples tunnel is me with a torch fumbling around in the darkness trying to find my wallet to go and buy another phone from another manufacturer.

    Calendar - in our case, it was just that all calendars had become deselected, so Calendar looked to be empty ... so we had to select them anew - on the iPhone / go to Settings / then Mail, Contacts. Calendars / scroll down to Calendars / choose Default Calendar ...
