    I've got my hands on an iPhone 3G and it is currently running iOs 4.2 HORRIBLY.
    I would like to use it as my second phone and as an occasional mobile browser as my iPod touch doesn't have 3G :(
    I don't need multitasking or anything else (including jailbreak) but I want a fast iPhone. Obviously, it's not a 3GS or a 4 but I want it as fast as it can be so which version do you recommend? 2.2.1, 3.0, 3.1.3?
    Nothing else matters but speed and responsiveness :D I'll jailbreak it if it'll improve the performance.
    I'm eagerly waiting for your replies :D

    More tweaks you install, the slower it will get.

    Yes.
    I wouldn't go any higher with a 3G.
