    Hi

    If you Don't. Like IOS 6 do NOT upgrade. Has I am finding a lot of user that are upgrading too IOS 6 and a few hrs later they are wanting too downgrade back too IOS 5.1.1 and they find out they can't do it



    All so if you have a IPhone 3GS or. IPhone 4 plzs really think about upgrading. Be for you do it. Has you can not downgrade back once. You have upgrade too IOS 6



    All so learn too read the list of what you are Geting be for you upgrade many are upgrade and Not reading. The list you are not Geting all of the 200 new things on iPad 2 iPhone 3GS iPhone 4

    Think be for you upgrade

    How are you supposed to know if you like it or don't like it without upgrading first and experiencing it for yourself?

    The fact that Apple does not allow people to downgrade their own phones is inexcusable, really.

    Reviews can only go so far... you can't beat hands on usage.

    Seriously. Did you ever think to yourself, "When I buy my next car, I am going to limit myself to reading about it and won't bother with a test drive"? Of course not.

    ios 6 is fine generally, nothing can prepare you for maps though, you would not believe the reviews unless you tried it yourself.

    Having tried it on another phone, not upgrading my 4

    Oh another note, if you don't like mayonnaise, quit eating the stuff right out of the jar.

    Isn't that what I said? I.e., you can't beat hands on experience.

    I was agreeing with you, and then adding my own emphatic flair for OP's benefit. :)

    It would be so much nicer if Apple would have a simple way to allow you to revert back to the previous version of IOS; then you could try the new one and if you didn't like it easily back up.

    Originally, it used to be easy to downgrade. Apple deliberately started blocking people from downgrading because it was being used to jailbreak iDevices. I think the carriers raised a hue because once you jailbreak, you can unlock, then there goes the carriers' subsidy.

    I suggest that if you are upgrading from these device. You do a clean install method, rather than doing, a over the air update. Then setting your phone as new. Don't restore from backups... make sure you back up your contacts thru iCloud so you don't loose your contacts. Then download your apps manually; so take this opportunity for spring cleaning, download only the "Apps" you need. I think my 3GS run better on IOS 6 it is more responsive and browsing with safari seems responsive.

    Is it wrong of me to read this with a half second delay in between each word?

    the issue is that people install it to try it out before understanding what the upgrade is.

    In a world where things "just work," they shouldn't have to.

    Agreed. That's the difference between serving the hobbyist and the broader markets. Hobbyists like tinkering, everyone else just wants it to work.

    I have my 4S on 5.1.1 still. The only problem is that it has decided to download the iOS 6 update in case I want to update it. So, I've lost 1GB of space on my 4S without any way of reclaiming it.

    There was a rep in the local Apple Store telling people to not upgrade.

    Of course, this makes sense. But how can one know they don't like iOS6 until they've upgraded? Also, to those who aren't so tech savvy, does the iPhone not 'force' the upgrade on the user?

    A lot of my friends and, this evening, my sister have upgraded and quickly fallen out of love with the iPhone. Seems that iOS6 may be a bit of a stinker.

    I'd like to see you partake in a forum using the OP's native language - at least he has made the effort to learn a foreign language to such a high level. I applaud him, I feel sorry for you.
