    Honesty? Unnecessary expenses?

    Heaven forbid that the big corporations should have to suffer the consequences of sorting this almighty gaff.

    No that's right, just leave the burden to Mr. Littleguy the consumer to sort it all out with a series of fixes, work-arounds and unofficial downgrades. Because we all have time for that.

    You could have finished the downgrade by the time you wrote that reply. But, by all means, go ask for an unnecessary warranty replacement. Push down an old lady on your way there, too.

    This upgrade has for the most part ruined my iPhone. It is slow and has a very high lag time and is for the most part a piece of crap. Apple has no resolution to the problem. I feel like I am being forced to upgrade. Does anyone know how to unistall this software upgrade? What a huge disappointment. Apple needs to fix this problem.

    I just finished posting links to downgrade instructions.

    go to lifehacker.com, search iPhone software downgrade. I followed the instructions and it worked perfectly.

    I'm starting to really dislike Apple.

    Further Update:

    - Did what the Apple Store's "Genius" said and completely wiped my iPhone, reinstalled iOS 4, and restored my items. (unfortunately, I can't downgrade)
    - Everything worked ok for about 1-2 days.
    - I can now report: It's basically unusable again.

    My friends with Droids were making fun of me at a party. They actually went as far presenting to the entire party, "How much his iphone *****". Truly, they hooked a video camera to the big screen tv and had me show off how terrible it is. There was actually laughter when everyone counted to 27 to see my iPod screen. I was not proud to be part of the Apple family at this party.

    Apple... please, do something! I've reported, I worked with you... nothing... I can't use this.

    And why can't you downgrade? The procedure works just fine.

    Last night I "upgraded to a more comfortable experience" by converting my phone back to 3.1.3 . I'm not an IT person at all and found the instructions very easy to follow. I am a happy 3G owner again. I am eligible to upgrade my and my wife's phones to a 4G but it is going to take a while to get the taste of this very stinky experience out of my mind.

    I have provided input direct to Apple (you can find the links in other people's posts) twice and don't expect a response. But I am standing firm that I refuse to upgrade to a 4G until there is at least official acknowledgment for Apple about this; even better, a fix.

    No, the restore process transfers everything from backup - call history, message log, notes, app settings, etc, etc.

    This happened for me. Because of this, I've decided to give the droid x a shot.

    iOS 4 ruined my iPhone 3G. It became so slow after the update that I have been trying to figure out how to downgrade, which apple makes incredibly difficult.

    I really hope apple gets it together, I was considering buying the iPhone 4 but I don't want to support a strategy of screwing old users into buying the newest and best product.
  • _Shorty-CM Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Several people have posted links to instructions on how to downgrade, including me on the last page.

    Don't apple realise, most 3G owners are just 4G-owners-in-waiting? 3G owners skipped the temptation to plump for a 3GS. Perhaps they were holding out for a more radical development. In most cases, 3G owners may still be in 'that place', waiting for the right time to buy. Waiting for contacts to expire, waiting for a birthday, or Christmas, or the bonus to come through at work.

    As we can see in these forums, the hostility and resentment amongst the 'X million' 3G owners/would-be 4G owners is growing like an epidemic. People are going to other platforms now as a result. Apple are you reading this?

    Well intentioned contributors giving solutions is great, it is helping us dig ourselves out of the proverbial brown stuff, and I'm not knocking them for doing so - but that's just not the point.

    We want official action. From the top. A statement. A bit of respect. Openness. Honesty. Accountability. A valid, approved and authorised solution from the people who created the problem. Then hopefully we will all stick with the brand and put the 4G back on our Christmas lists.

    I think it may be somewhat rare for anyone from Apple to read anything here. The best way to get anything official to happen is to hit up the official feedback link and post your grievances there.

    When I called AppleCare support about this they said they were aware of the issue, were not sure when a fix would be released, and that there was a way to downgrade but I would have to find that information for myself. sigh

    I deleted 25 apps from my phone and noticed a SIGNIFICANT improvement! I also reboot the phone once a day or so. I wrote Apple about the problem. They told me to keep a log for 24 hrs. of every time the phone had a problem. They linked me to this discussion (which I had read already. Do they actually know we are here!?). They asked me to email them my log as an attachment and said they were sending it to the Apple engineers! I hope they will help us with some software fix. In the meantime, I recommend streamlining your apps. I kept my folders, by the way, but fewer apps made a huge performance difference.
