    I read the apple user agreement and it says apple will offer original OS your phone came with if you want it. So why is apple not fulfilling this agreement?

    Yes many 3G owners would love to go back to 3.1.3 and 3.1.2 since the 4.0 upgrade. Yup yup... Apple isn't fulfilling the agreement but we should fulfill ours that we won't tamper with the OS lol maybe a jailbreak is the only way to go back ya think

    But what have you done? Have you gone into an Apple store and asked them to do it? What did they say? I've never heard of anyone trying it.

    I called the apple store and was told there is no way to go back. And the apple employee giggled and thought it was funny. It goes against the apple agreement though. Doesn't suprise me because this is apple for you.

    Well I can tell you straight up that I had a 3gs replaced under warentee back in July I gave my old one to them with iOS4 on and the repalacement come back to me with iOS3.1.

    So unless you have gone into an apple store and asked then I cant really see what the point of your rant is.

    It's common knowledge apple won't let you go back. And they are not replacing all iPhones you want to go back on. So many unhappy 3G owners out there who are running 4.0 so they just take it to the apple store and get a new phone? You got lucky they aren't doing this for everybody why would they? It would be cheaper for apple to provide older OS than to give out phones. Point is apple not fulfilling the agreement in my iPhone manual... This is. Problelm

    I find it funny these apple fanboys playing stupid lol did you go into apple store to see if they would downgrade your OS lol the Apple store 2 hours from me why would I go in and ask when I can call and ask to be shot down lol

    Just the truth no troll about it... Two kinds of people who use the word troll. The first kind are apple fanboys who think no matter what apple is perfect and can't do any wrong even if they do wrong. Delusionals.. Or apple employees on here not admitting they work for apple.

    Wow all the 3G owners need to talk to you to get te downgrade OS so they can use there phones again at acceptable speeds

    And to think all along these guys could downgrade the 3G OS to get back the better speeds of phone. God bless you sir and we need to spread the word on this discovery you made that eveyone else who had problems failed to look into..

    because you can't be sure you were talking to someone who even has the proper knowledge to shoot you down in the first place. Make an appointment to go in to the genius bar. I'm sure they will be more than helpful.

    The OP is correct about what it says in the user agreement. Either the guy at the apple store didnt know about it or the OP told the apple guy how to do his job in which case wasnt willing to help.

    http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/iphone.pdf

    Check out section 1 General seccond paragraph. It says that apple will provide all software updates upto and including the major releases. That if you use the old software you dont get all the good fetures.

    I paraphrased that as i cant cut and paste from a PDF on my works PC.

    EDIT: I think I may have missinterpreted that paragraph. I think what it actually means was if your phone was provided with software 2.0 apple will continue to provide updates of the software up until the next major release.

    The original OS for the 3G would be 2.0.

    Do you want that?

    Maybe try calling apple support then? They could be more helpful than the retail stores. I'm not sure if you have already tried them or not.

    2 hours isn't that bad of a drive. Make a day out of it. Take the family or pets or whatever you have at home with you down to the store,and spend the day in that town.

    Point is Apple not following the agreement... So get 3.1.3 oh wait apple won't let you but the agreement they made says different.. Apple want us to follow software agreements we won't jailbreak... It goes both ways apple

    Yup, I've done it to my 3G.

    go to http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750 and find the OS you want( iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw is what you asked for)

    then go here and download RecBoot (http://www.sebby.net/443-recboot-final-release/), this will put your iPhone into DFU mode, but you need this program because at the end of the process, you are going to get an Error pop up, this program will take it out of Recovery Mode.

    and here is a video tutorial detailing How-to. http://cnettv.cnet.com/downgrade-your-iphone-3g-from-ios-4/9742-1_53-50090954.html

    its super easy. But this process only works for the iPhone 3G (not for the 3GS or iPhone 4)

    Thank you sir... Yes it is true and apple should be held accountable for all the people denied to go back to older OS
