It's really a shame how iOS4 operates on iPhone 3G despite disabling most of its features to maintain its performance as Apple claimed.

I got the same problem. I have to downgrade to 3.1.2.

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.iPhone 5 (iOS 7 JB) - Macbook PRO 13.3 10.9 - Core2Quad Windows 7

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.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I still have a G3, Mainly because I can't afford a $500 to $600 dollar phone right now. 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".
Have a nice day

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.

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Apple: Your device is outdated, you have to upgrade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?

Yep I am ith 02 in the UK and I must have got the 3G about 1 month before the 3gS came OUT !!!
I have also gone back to 3.1.3
07-29-2010, 08:45 AM #74
07-29-2010, 08:46 AM #75Back 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 iOS4.01He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

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.

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