    Rebsola said: Add 3 more to the 3G upgrades that are having problems. Mine and two of my coworkers all are in the same boat. I can tell you that both of them are not going on forums to announce the problems.


    How is someone supposed to help him/her which such an empty post. He/she may as well said me too.

    Reports have surfaced that iOS 4.1 (currently still in beta) has significantly increased the speed of iPhone 3G users... now we just have to wait patiently for them to work out the last of the bugs and release it publicly for consumers... problems will be solved soon enough!

    Google "iOS 4.1 for iphone 3G" and you'll get all of the info. I believe recently the 3rd beta has been released... so hoping for consumer release soon!!

    Your kidding right?!? Have you not read these forums? I can only speak for mine because I did not go into specific detail with my coworkers, well except they said "It now *****".

    1. Mail doesn't open.
    2. Mail crashes
    3. GPS is worst
    4. Internet is slow and nearly unusable
    5. Battery barely last 4 hours from full charge

    All this since the update.

    I can go on and on. I'm not a techie by any means. I don't want to jailbreak my phone. I have no clue what how or why half the **** people talk about when it comes to technical stuff. Apple realizes that simplicity is an important factor when it comes to products. They advertise "you already know how to use the I-pad".

    Anyway, the whole point of the post was in response to we are all having problems with the upgraded 3G. I haven't run into a single person that has upgraded that has not had serious problems. I don't ask, "really, could you be specific?" You see most of us don't care, we just want it to work.

    I've upgraded to iOS4 and now I have the following problems:

    - after 1 hour working with it (iPhone 3G) it becomes VERY SLOW;
    - when receiving a call, it crashes, and reboots;
    - when receiving a call, it doesn't let me answer, I have to return the call (€€)

    I thought that if I stopped the running applications it would work better, but with no applications running, i wasn't able to the iTunes on the iPhone.

    Help?

    It's a huge problem. I haven't met anyone with a 3G that doesn't have the problem. I think it's about 5 people I know of off the top of my head.

    Why can't they just update the software to fix it for us? It's been weeks now and I'm losing patience. My phone is a piece of $#!+. And, why can't we go back to older software?

    I'm an Apple diehard customer and am about to leave the cult. The apparent arrogance of this company is going cost them a fortune in lost customers if they don't act fast.

    Signed, soon to be a former Applehead.

    Bizuser, was that directed at me? If so, you'd better read my posts again. I was quoting somebody else's response, and taking issue with it. I've been slamming Apple ever since I took the upgrade to 4.x, and I am a strong supporter of downgrading 3G iPhones back to 3.1.3 ... Not because I enjoy going around the "Apple system", but because it works and Apple still hasn't addressed the problem properly.
