    I really don't notice too much of a difference on my 3G. It seems a little bit faster. Only thing i been able to do so far is to create folders....

    What else is the 3G capable of?

    So, I am looking at a 2-3 hour upgrade for some simple little changes? Lame.

    iBooks is a free download at the App store, not a part of OS4.

    SIMPLE changes? Obviously you're just looking to complain. Otherwise, you'd be reading up on this and realizing that there's more to iOS4 than wallpapers and multitasking.

    enjoy... http://www.tipb.com/2010/06/14/ios-4-walkthrough/

    My upgrade took all of 25 minutes, including the download. But that was with a 3GS, which might go a tad faster.

    You also have zoom on your camera but what was so difficult for apple to let 3G change their background?

    True, but OS4 is required to run it.

    One hour and ten minutes since I started the upgrade, and it's barely 10% of the way though backing up. I am doing this on a 2.16 Ghz White Macbook with 2GB of ram, and a 320GB hard drive. I feel like I took a trip back to the late 90s, when major computer tasks and downloads had to run overnight and sometimes to the next evening.

    I really do feel bad for you, but the problem is not iOS4, it's iPhone OS 3. Backing up on that sucker took forever even for my 3GS (my gf's 3G was PAINFUL lol).

    power thru it, you can do it! it's pretty nice on the other side :)
    you can try what others have done before and do a manual backup (right-click on iPhone in your iTunes and click Backup) and then continue with your upgrade without doing the backup.
