    Anyone else worried that when they load IOS 5 it will slow their iPhone 4 (not 4S obviously) like the iPhone 3 got wrecked when (I think it was) IOS 4 came out?

    Well the 3G was never a speed demon to begin with, and to be fair iOS 4 came out 2 years after the 3G, the 4 is only one year old.

    I just installed iOS 5 GM on my iPhone 4. Been using it for the past two hours. So far, so good.

    The iPhone 3G with iOS 4 and iPhone 4 with iOS 5 scenarios are very different. One was a underpowered device and the other is a powerful device.

    I've been using iOS 5 since the summer and there's no noticeable difference in performance from iOS 4. Nothing to worry about. :cool:

    I downloaded the ipsw file for my iPhone 4 (in my case, the CDMA version). Installed successfully but for some reason almost all of my apps won't sync back to my phone.

    Any ideas?

    BTW: For the apps listed in my iTunes library it says when I right click and get info that the Original file could not be found.

    Never seen this before. Any help is appreciated! :)
