    On my 4 running iOS 5, it is barely functional. I cant even use it over Wi-Fi, it only loads if I'm on 3G. Anyone else having this problem?

    It started being slow last night after 5.0 was released. I'm still on 4.3.5 and it's still slow.

    What you expect? Apple is probably still in the process of upgrading millions of devices, go out or go watch tv and try again in a few hours.

    Once people have upgraded, updated apps and completed there first iCloud backups I'm sure it'll go back to running as normal!

    All the stories and posts moaning aren't going to speed anything up, or do people's blood pressure any good ;)

    That's why I'm not updating right now, everything is slow.
    I rather wait for my 4S to get here.

    At least it is not iOS 5 that is causing it. Everything on apple servers are going to be slow for a few days while people update there devices.

    Just update to ios5 and it's running as slow as it was on 4.3.5 it's definitely not a firmware issue.
