How can i get my iPhone 3g to run faster? please do not say "buy an iPhone 4" because I can't. I hope there is a way, thanks.
try a reset, hold down the home/power button together until you see the apple logo and then release, then wait for the phone to boot back up, see if that helps.
I have done this before it helps for maybe 7 minutes, then the phone slows down again :^(
Restore as new, i.e. without your backup. Don't sync/download anything, see how it runs factory fresh.
Ok, but what if it stil runs like a slug? should i think about investing in an iPhone 4?
Yes. A 4 or 4S.
K, the software is downloading.
It seems to work better
on the 3G anything 4.0 and beyond is going to run slowler than 3.xx. That is one of the main reasons why the 3G and the origninal iphone are no longer supported with software upgrades.
Oh i guess that makes sense. is there a way to back up on ios like can u go back to a 3. something ios?
Downgrading is not supported by Apple. Search Google for ways to downgrade a 3G to 3.1.3. Here's one... http://lifehacker.com/5572003/how-to-downgrade-your-iphone-3g[s]-from-ios-4-to-i os-313
Ok thanks I'll try it. I also have a question about jailbreaking people i know talk about it and they tell me i should but i don't want to what is the advantage of jailbreaking it?
Sorry, JB can't be discussed here on an Apple owned forum but Google will find you plenty of answers.
Here's Apple's official stance on JB... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3743
if i try to downgrade the ios then how to i get all my pictures and phone numbers back that i had saved on the other one? i backed it up but i don't think that back up will work with an older ios
