Mmmkay, so consolidated inboxes and folders should not cripple the 3G as I see it. Do you?Well everyone was crying that 3G didn't get multitasking and stuff, I think we know why. It's hardware is 5 years old (same as the original iPhone that apple was designing in 2005)
Apple isn't gonna code different OS's for older hardware. Either upgrade, deal with it, or stay on 3.1.3
A unified inbox has nothing to do with why ios4 cripples the 3G. That stuff is on servers anyway. No I'm not a coder, nor do I know anything about it.Mmmkay, so consolidated inboxes and folders should not cripple the 3G as I see it. Do you?
Obviously you are coding ignorant.
i agree. they should allow the option to downgrade.Apple should give the option to downgrade the OS if you experience problems with 3G on IOS4. I use my old 3G as ipod and web browser/games for my kid. When I upgraded the thing is insane slow.
I think apple let us have IOS4 on 3G so that we can see that we need to upgrade...!!! nice marketing strategy
I agree - so slow it's painful. I reboot daily and get a few hours of better speed before it grinds down again.I swear, the thing has become almost unusable at times since the update. Text entry can be uber painful until things in memory seem to clear. Anyone else seem to have this experience? Haven't seen it in these threads so just wondering.
Err... A 5 year old Celeron would have come with Vista pre-installed on it. And if you put Windows 7 on it, it would actually run better than it did with Vista...But your talking about putting a newly revised OS on 5 year old hardware. That doesn't make sense. Should I put vista on an old celeron computer? No.
A 5 year old celeron would run like a 3G with ios4. It would be slow and buggy and not usable. Don't try and say vista would run flawless on a celeron from 2005. If memory serves it would've came with xp at that time anyways. Actually vista was not released until January 2007. It also was much later in the year that it came pre-installed on all machines. So a 2005 computer had to come with XP lolErr... A 5 year old Celeron would have come with Vista pre-installed on it.

Gruber posted a video about this....I swear, the thing has become almost unusable at times since the update. Text entry can be uber painful until things in memory seem to clear. Anyone else seem to have this experience? Haven't seen it in these threads so just wondering.
Some 3Gs running iOS4.0 become super-slow. But a DFU restore actually improves this. This suggests some kind of bug - rather than a problem with the OS itself.My 3G became pretty much unusable on 4.0 so I downgraded back to 3.1 and it goes like lightning again. Apple are clever they have allowed the upgrade on a 3G to show how outdated the phone is....and needs upgrading!
You can jailbreak 3 to get those features and the ones Apple didn't give you with less of a performance hit than installing 4.I would love Apple to "overclock" my 3G a little bit to get a decent performance on iOS4. Even though this will reduce some battery life. iOS4 has some good feature and I won't go back to iOS3.
I don't see any of the above on my 3Gs with IOS4. It's plain faster than it ever has been and runs flawlessly. Never had to reboot it and still haven't.Even the 3GS has a few issues, although one of those is an iOS4 cpu cycle bug which persists until resetting the device (I have an idea of what causes this, but not 100% sure atm)
If they can fix that, iOS4 is good for 3GS, but you still get the odd lag on menus, which is odd since the menus look exactly like iOS3... so there must be needless bloat added into iOS4
