    Well, technically your phone is exactly the same (with the exception of 3G and GPS) as the first generation iPhone. so for arguments sake, your phone is based on 3 year old technology, going on 4.

    I can understand the older slower 3G having problems with IOS4 but i can't understand how some 3GS people are having problems. 3GS is considerably faster than the 2G or 3G.

    I have a 3GS with iOS4 and it works perfectly. No bugs, no crashes, no slow down what so ever. Never crashed once.

    A clean DFU restore to iOS4.01 and the phone is almost as snappy as 3.13.
    Upgrading from 3.xx is what causes most problems or restoring from a backup made in 3.xx but a DFU restore is definitely faster than a non-DFU restore which is a bit surprising.
    Enabling Multitasking or wallpaper also affects performance a lot - probably why Apple have them disabled.

People still have 3G because a lot of us bought ours 2 months before the 3GS was released, and are not eligible for an upgrade yet. Hell I'm still not eligible until April or May of next year before I can upgrade.

    So in closing that is "why people still own 3G".

    You cant expect to run a new OS on old hard ware of course its not gonna perform well lol. Its like taking a windows 98 pc and throwing on xp or vista lol. Either stick with the old OS or upgrade your hardware and stop complaining your phone is like 4 years old.

    Typical Apple.

    User: I cant use the new update.
    Apple: Your device is outdated, you have to upgrade
    User: I got it less than 2 years ago
    Apple: OMG that is like forever ago, we dont support ancient products
    User: But I cant just use my old software you forced me update my OS and now my phone barely works, and if I get a new one, all of my old cases and accessories wont work.

    Apple: So what?

    Dont be ridiculous the iphone 3G is 2 years old it was released on the 11th July 2008

    My PS3 is 5 Years old and cost significanlty less than my iphone, yet it works perfectly after firmware updates.

    So yes damn right I should complain !!

    Your completely right. And That is why I went back to 3.1.3
    But I'm sticking with my story of I can't upgrade for another 8 to 9 month from now

    DAMN YOU AT&T with your 2 year contract!

    Good point...But

    As well as the XboX 360 and the PS3 both go. Microsoft and Sony do not have "The Next Gen Console" out yet. So the hardware will all ways have to support the software. Because if they don't then they are both dumb.

    Default Back to 3.1.3 for ME
    I actually downgraded my phone back to 3.1.3 after having multiple issues of apps crashing. DEFINITELY a problem for the 3G!

    I still use a 3G because I still like it.
    I can't justify the cost of upgrading. The 3GS was better and the iPhone 4 is better still, but is it worth me shelling out 500+ (less what I'd get for my 3G)?
    I've yet to convince myself. Maybe when T-Mobile get it and my contract runs out in October, but until then I'm still happy with my 3G running iOS4.01

    I have mentioned the performance with 4.0 on the 3G many days ago. Solution-Run redsnow de-select everything and let it finish. Next, uncheck all spotlight. The Problem is Winterboards "user wallpaper" does not work with 4.0 as well as alot of Cydia Themes. This means a black homescreen is all your going to enjoy. fyi: if u run redsnow and add any 1 of the features: battery percentage, multitasking, or homescreen anyone of them will slow down the 3G. I absolutely love the "homescreen feature." I added that feature cuz I don't like all black homescreen. Another speed fix is not adding Winterboard! I know don't fall out the chair. If your on 4.0 and want your 3G fast, don't add Winterboard, uncheck spotlight, and deselect all features in redsnow. Your 3G will be perfectly fast and unlocked (adding ultrasn0w 0.93) via cydia. My 2 cents.

    Vista was total crap from the get-go on even brand new machines. If you're trying to install Vista on a 5-year old machine, you're an idiot just for trying to install Vista, period.

    Windows 7, on the other hand, runs flawlessly on an 8 year old Dell Dimension that I setup for my son.
