    3.1.3 at times seem to slow down the 3g, Why even bother upgrading to iOs 4.0 for folders?.

    I think 3.1.2 firmware is the best for 3g

    I noticed a big difference in speed by turning off the Spotlight Search on my 3G. I never used it anyway.. Seemed to make it run faster overall.. Especially openeing and closing apps..

    settings > general > home button > spotlight search> Uncheck All

    Try that and see if that helps ya at all..

    I thought the 3G had the same RAM and stuff as the 1st gen iPhone.

    Also, not trying to single you out, but why does everyone call the first iPhone a 2G? What about it is 2G?

    I know a lady who had AT&T and apple tell her to call the other to get her problem fixed, so she called them both in a 3-way and talked to them at the same time. She got her problem fixed.

    I remeber my 3G being super slow. It was so frustrating at times. Luckily I sold my 3G for 300$ unlocked and bought a 3GS for 240$

    Not sure if you run windows, buy you can manage your contacts with Windows Address Book or Outlook. Then you just set your phone up as new and sync your contacts with the Info tab in iTunes. Saves a lot of typing The 3G should not have been allowed to update to 4.0. It has the same specs as the 2G. People may not want to hear that you will have to upgrade to the 3GS(or even better the 4), but software and Apps are going to force this. Apple knows what time it is. The 3GS will take the $99 spot of the 3G so it won't be too bad to upgrade your phone.

    As soon as I upgraded my 3GS to iOS4, it began to constantly crash and reboot. Than it stopped turning on, even when holding the home and power button simultaneous. I'd have to leave the phone alone for about 20 minutes than try to reboot it, and if it decides to boot, it once took the phone 3 bloody hours to finish booting!

    Apple replaced it for me yesterday, with iOS4 on it. Haven't had any problems with it yet, but it's still day one. Anyway iPhone4 comes out in Australia tomorrow and my network (and employer) are offering 50% off the upgrade free so I thinks I'll take up the offer.

    Anyone wanna buy a 2 day old 3GS?

    I guess I'm in the minority. My 16GB 3G is running IOS4.0.1 with no noticeable difference in speed from 3.1.2

    Let me get this straight, you update the OS on your phone and didn't work as well as before the update so you call the cellular provider? Everything worked fine until you installed new software from Apple so you assume AT&T must be having issues? Your deductive reasoning is incredible.

    Pathetic.

    It's not that they don't want them around. Technology has outpaced them. And consumer demand for more and more features is pushing these phones to their End Of Life phases.

    Default 2G running with some iOS4 options
    There are modified iOS versions available out there for the 2G and 3G that work great!

    I am running one on a 2G based off of 3.1.3 that has many cool options including some options from iOS4:

    Jailbreaking, Unlocked, Wallpapers from iOS4, Springboard Wallpaper, iOS4 Dock, Reflective Dock, iOS4 Icon, Battery Percentage, Bluetooth Tethering, Native MMS, TXT Character Counter, USB Tethering, Video Recording, Multitasking and more!

    On top of it all it functions even much faster than the stock 3.1.3. Developer removed a ton of stuff (plists) not used by older 2G and 3G models to free up ram. My 2G feels and performs similar to the way it did when it was new running the 1.X iOS versions.

    I have a 3G and its slow, my brother has a 3GS and its also slow, my other brother has a 3G and his is again slow, a friend has a 3G and his is really slow, a whole heap of his customers have 3G and 3GS and they are all slow.

    All iphones are running iOS4 and iOS401.

    Nice update Crapple... NOT. You are more and more like $ony with every update. Adding useless crap that bloats and slows down the system forcing us to update to the new hardware.

    I think the HTC Desire is more and more appealing now. Time to change.

    Maybe the initial payment, but you'll still be paying for that phone for a while yet!

    Yes. Download the 3.1.2 ipsw and shift/restore back down to 3.1.2. Jailbreak with Blackra1n.com.
