    Just bought an iPhone 3Gs but it runs on 4.0 can I change it?

    Basically as part of my phone contract I could choose a phone, I chose the 3Gs. I received it yesterday and synced it with iTunes and things but found the internet on the phone to be pretty slow as well as the opening of apps etc.

    On a search for the problem I found that it was running iOS 4.0 and having heard about all the problems it has I wasn't happy.

    ]Is there a way that I can change it from 4.0 to run on 3.1.3, even though the phone has only used 4.0?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    No there is no way to downgrade a new iphone 3GS. You would have needed to back up your SHSH files to downgrade which you couldn't have done because you just got the phone. 4.0 should be fine on a 3GS though, it was mainly just on the iphone 3G that 4.0 runs really slow.

    Thanks for the reply. Perhaps I was expecting to much from the phone in the first place.

    I've trawled the internet all day looking for a solution but couldn't find one, thanks for the confirmation though!
