    I'm trying to figure out what caused it to become so slow so Idon't make the same mistake with my iphone 4.
    Could it have been anything I have done or the hardware wasn't good enough for the updates?

    I also restored the 3G a few times could that have been the issue?

    The 3G hardware was very inadequate for the software it was running. As a result, it slowed down naturally. There's nothing you could have done about it. Keep in mind the 3G hardware is three years old but has been running fairly recent versions of iOS. Not bad ...

    You said it, the phone didnt have enough hardware resources to handle the demanding software updates.
    If you stay with 3.1.3 you would be ok but any higher than that the iphone 3G became a slow POS.

    When your phone is older like the 3G your best hanging fire before installing the latest firmware on it. Read the Internet and see how it runs for other people. See if they report it being very slow.
