No. Not on a 3G. It will keep you from going from 4.0.1 to 4.0, but you should be able to drop back down to 3.1.2.

What are you talking about. Not everybody is able to purchase a new phone every year, two years or even more. Some kid saves his allowance for months to buy his awesome iPhone. Two years later, with the phone still in descent condition because its the first thing a kids ever bought for himself and apple should just phase it out. Alot of people still use 2G and 3G iphones. It's an astounding shortcoming of apples that they think it's okay to not update phones that are still in play. Walmart still sells iPhone 3G. I've said it before I'll say it again. They're messy.

Mine also ran SSUUPPPEERRR slow on 4.0 so i just downgraded.. I like 4.0 but couldn't stand that sluggish stuff, How would i go about adding all those 4.0 features on 3.1.3?
P.S. don't be pricks not everyone can afford the iPhone 4 ok?

Here's what I'd do, JB ur 3G. Disable spotlight, add pkg from cydia called Remove Recents to minimize drain in memory from multitasking or if you want to fully remove multitasking, don't select the option in redsnow or if u don't want to restore, add this pkg, it's called Disable ios4 multitasking (google for repo info). Hope this helps. Also know that jailbreaking ur phone slows it down but this should help some if not all 3G owners that are in this situation.

For the iphone 3G users with iOS performance issues, have you tried turning OFF spotlight? Settings - General - Spotlight settings. Uncheck everything and reboot. See how things go.
This was done on a few that I know of and the performance increased considerably. Then go back in and turn it on ONLY for items you really want to search for.

my 3G sucks now im on OS4, the only way to de-lag it is to have no apps in folders and not have multitasking.. the Settings app is the worst, it takes ages to open up sometimes..

Im still waiting for my iPhone 4 to be delivered. After 3 weeks via apple.com it still isnt here. I upgraded my 3g to 4.0, has next to ruined my phone. Everything runs slower. 3.0 was 2x as fast, all the drawbacks but no benefits like multitasking (no jailbreak)Add me up on xbox live gamertag clikzip.

Upgrading to iOS4 practically ruined my 3G. The only real option was to downgrade back to 3.1.2. Let's not forget that the 3GS was only released last year so it's not even like I'm running an obsolete phone and it's crazy they would try to phase it out already

First the 3G owners complain that apple is phasing out the phone by not offering the upgrade. Apple gives you the upgrade and you still say they are phasing out the phone. Make up your mindsThank you spirit JB for 3.1.3 !!!

Had to downgrade back to 3.1.3 on my 3GS. Too slow, too buggy.
