    Considering the poor performance of ios4 on the iphone4, I'm inclined to wonder did the developers have any phones to test it on. Some of the bugs are so blatantly obvious typing lags dreadful Bluetooth performance and that awful proximity sensor bug. I waited several weeks after US launch mainly to allow all bugs to be ironed out but that didn't work. Cmon apple get your finger out. You dropped the ball on this one

    You can try a reset or a restore, sounds like a software issue. I don't have any of the problems you have, nor do any of my friends with an iPhone4 or the ones that still have a 3GS.

    Is this guy for real? A multi-billion dollar company bring out a new device and operating system for said device and he thinks they, what, don't test the software at all and just ship it out?

    I think you should crawl back under the rock you've clearly been living under and come back once you've stopped crying about your supposed slow device.

    Apple seems to always have issues with new firmware releases, but they iron them out eventually. I bet iOS 4.1 is going to be what 4.0 wanted to be.

    Point i was trying to make. Btw to the smart ass suggesting I shoul crawl under a rock, you clearly have the problem. So why does every major update have so many obvious bugs despite the beta testers and the following update is then spot on. Why not spend a little more time on the updates and try getting them nearly right first time. Now I'll go find my rock and keep the ignorant cretins happy

    Apple is so secretive, there isn't really any test hardware that goes out to third parties.

    Because people writing the software are humans?

    There will always be bugs. Given the humongous install base with millions of different configurations, it is pretty much impossible to anticipate what bugs would come out. Any company, no matter how big they are, has a limited amount of resources for testing. And you can't simply test everything because you can't test the unknown. Apple could spend 10 years making sure a piece of software is bug free, and then when released it will still have bugs.
