So in your little situation you've made up in your head.. is the phone the car, or the part????? It seems that you've tried to switch the 2...
The OS is still very accessible... and apple could make it available in itunes with a few clicks of a button I'm sure. Just because the 3G isn't sold new anymore, people are STUCK IN CONTRACTS that FORCE them to use that phone.
If anything, Apple should be forced to support that phone for 2 years after they stop selling it new, due to people "forced" into using it due to contracts.

Why did Apple release iOS4 for the iPhone 3G, if they didn't design it to work on it?
Simple fact, they did design it to work on it, and they designed it to degrade the experience and "encourage" 3G owners to upgrade to a newer phone.

honestly 4.1 runs better on the 3g than 4.01/02 did, but it is still REALL bad and I would not say it is comparable to 3.1 at all.... its very frustrating using it.

Why can't it about money?
Maybe she had enough of Apple's tactics and decide she does not want another iPhone.
It cost her money to file this lawsuit, why should not there be reimbursement on the cost to file this lawsuit?
The fact that she made this class action suit so other iPhone owners can join in should give her the benifit of the doubt on her intentions.

The overall level of intellect displayed on this thread is appalling.
Good luck to her.

I have a 3GS and a 3G and it is possible to downgrade the 3G to 3.x firmware. You just need to download the actual firmware(probably from iClarified) and then shift+restore to select the firmware you want. She obviously didn't ask anyone with any knowledge about firmware for help otherwise she would have found that out. Also, 4.0 has been out for how long and she is just now complaining about it?

Here is an example: you can install Vista on a wide variety of PCs and some may run it better than others depending on the hardware you have. You could also just stick with XP which doesn't have the same features but will probably run a little faster and smoother(I speak from experience). You just have to accept that you have older hardware and if you want the new features then you're going to have to give something up.
You could try to install 1.x firmware on a 3G and just keep phone/sms/email with a few basic PDA apps and it will probably run blazing fast. In life there are always tradeoffs. She needs to go to the genius bar so someone there can restore her phone with the older firmware so she gets over it. You can't sue because your old phone can't run new software as well as a newer one with better hardware.

this is not a good thing for apple, when the average daily users that doesn't know a thing about how to jailbreak/downgrade their iphone or doing all stuff that we do here on a daily bases are tired of them and their garbage.

zozo if they don't know about downgrading then why are they upgrading without knowing what will happen either? it works both ways.
edit: if apple acted irresponsibly in making 4.0 for the 3G then why did they omit multitasking for the 3G? their reason was they felt multitasking would be too taxing on the hardware so they chose not to implement it for the 3G but they did for the 3GS. mind you the iphone 4 came out around the same time that ios$ was released. if it were apple's intention to get users to upgrade then they wouldnt have offered all the features of ios4 on the 3GS.

As for the 3GS phone, that could handle iOS 4.x, so no problems there.
This whole lawsuit is without merit. As has already been said, 3G users can downgrade at will and 3GS users can handle iOS 4.x just fine. That said, if something comes out of this lawsuit and it'll be made possible to downgrade for everyone, then I'm all for it. But someone suing for money, that's just idiotic.
edit: just read further in the thread and saw Van had already been corrected. Disregard that part of my post.
