    Song and videos are synced tru iTunes. The 3GS runs fine on 4.3 and not slow Try a restore and then sync all your stuff over thru iTunes and restore from backup to get everything back.
    But sounds like you just registered to post bs, go back to your android site.

    Complete BS.

    Exactly. iTunes saves a copy of music and apps by default. So even if the device is restored users do not lose any data.

    Yes, next time don't update using a different computer. You did it with another iTunes library that's why you lost all your stuff. It's not Apple, the iPhone or 4.3 fault It's the user.

    You're the one with ridiculous expectations. You restored your phone. That erases it. If you don't know how itunes works by now, you might be too dim for a smartphone.

    OP I am sorry you ran into this conundrum. I have come dangerously close to restoring my iPhone using my girlfriends computer before.... I will admit that the way apple forces users to update iOS through iTunes is absolutely ridiculous. I am not sure how android does it but webOS has really wonderful over the air updates that work really well... there is NO reason apple could not change the way their updates work to be as simple as all the other aspects of iOS...

    At the same time, yes it is your fault not Apple's. You have to be very careful when updating the OS on something especially when you do not have a backup on hand.

    Updates sometimes fail -- that's a fact of life. Computers, phones, TiVos, ... whatever. It happens.

    What most people do before an update is to backup the device, just in case the update fails.

    You didn't do that, which is why you lost your content.

    Sucks that it happened to you. And no, not even HTC will guarantee you that a failed upgrade on their phones won't cause you to lose contents.

    You upgraded your phone thru a different computer that you don't have access to? You're new. Oh well, it's a good learning opportunity - but it's really your problem, not that the software sucks. Good luck in the future.

    3gs took longest to update but is just fine I have no issues so what ever you did must have been something in your iTunes settings
