Steve Jobs: Software Fix Coming to Boost Speed of iPhone 3G Running iOS 4
Those concerned with lagging iPhone 3G performance with iOS 4 may soon get some assistance from Apple. According to a new email from Steve Jobs (as reported by MacRumors), the folks in Cupertino are readying a software update to address the widely reported lack-of-speed incumbent on many iPhone 3G's running the latest iOS. The news follows reports from late July in which Apple openly acknowledged that it was investigating user reports of this very issue.
The information about a forthcoming software update was provoked by a user email to Jobs, who complained of his "dog slow" iPhone's frustratingly degraded "responsiveness" when scrolling, zooming, and typing. "I've waited patiently through 4.0.1 and 4.0.2," the email states, "looking for a fix that will make my phone work again. I've read the forums that advise me to jailbreak my phone or use some other method so I can downgrade back to a version of iPhone 3, however I'm not prepared to use a method that is not supported by Apple."
Steve Jobs responded with a four-word reply that now has many on their toes in anticipation of what has been promised: "Software update coming soon," Jobs advised. Given just how prevalent the iPhone 3G remains among the iPhone user base, Apple is certainly wise to not let these concerns linger and go un-addressed. Although there is presently no projected time-frame for the software fix alluded to by Jobs, "coming soon" is better than nothing, I suppose.

WTF..they give a crap about 3G?
...is Apple going soft?"It takes a rare thing, a turning point, to free oneself from any obsession. Be it prejudice or hate, or, even love"

I'm also assuming that the update won't apply for any versions under 3G since 4.0 wasn't supported on those phones.
Ummm feel free to go TMO. The fastest you can go on TMO is Edge and the 2G is only on Edge so no ******** please.

I was excited about this until I realized we use a jailbroken phone and any software update will erase that. I guess I'll be stuck with my slow *** 3G until apple releases this software, and hope someone can release a jailbreak.We are a disharmonic level of consciousness that is used as a steppingstone from the 42+2level to the next level, 46+2...These two additional chromosomes change everything

I hope so I told a buddy of my to jailbreak his 3g 3.1.3 and he complained about the speed. So I was like well just update it to the new 4.0 and it became even slower. Now he gives me a guilt trip every time I see him.
