    Hey whats up people,

    I have an iphone 4 since septembre 2011, I once did a restore from a back up and thats it.

    It is running iOS 6 and is obviously getting slow, would a factory restore do it any good??

    Thank you boys and gals

    I suggest looking at your usage. If you restore and then setup using your iCloud backup then you're putting your phone back to how it was today.

    Just like a computer, if you have a lot of things running, your system will slow down. With the phone, I think mail slows things down. Especially if you have multiple accounts added or one account with a ton of archived mail.

    actually I was thinking about doing a full factory restore and then just reinstall my apps one by one and restoring my contacts, reminders, etc instead of using a backup.
