    come monday, how many people will actually upgrade their 3g iphone to the new software? Or how many people are just going to wait for the iphone4?

    I, personally doing both. even though i wont have multitasking and other features, i want to see whats new.

    I'm selling my 3G as soon as I get the iPhone 4. But until then I'll wait until there's an iOs4 jailbreak for the 3G, and just run that. I live in Denmark, and there isn't even a release date yet :(

    I'd just like to know which features will work on the 3G and which won't, as I don't see that mentioned anywhere, except for the Multitasking feature...

    I've debated this a great deal. I had my 3G JB'd, but restored planning to upgrade (loosing access to MyWi in the meantime). But if all I'm going to get by upgrading is folders and the unified inbox (which does nothing for me), I think I'm going to re-JB. At least I had home screen wallpaper while JB'd plus MyWi, which I actually needed this morning but didn't have anymore.

    I'll update just for that new dock. I hate this old one it's boring. I used to jailbreak just to change the dock alone sometimes! I'm only doing this because I'm supposed to be getting the iPhone 4 on Thursday.

    I'm running the iOS4 GM on my 3G right now and it is sloooowwww. It really is terrible. All apps take longer to launch, many crashes (could be fixed by developers), no wallpaper, no multitasking, general lag all around...

    It kind of makes me mad. They update the OS with new features, but the 3G doesn't get most of them and they slow the thing down like crazy at the same time. Folders actually speeds up the springboard, so I'm not sure what else could be slowing it down.

    Unless you NEED folders and a unified inbox, I don't recommend upgrading to 4.0.

    Waiting for the 4. I sold my 3g on eBay and the buyer asked me NOT to put the new software on

    so I will back up my phone Wednesday night on the old software and wait till I get home with my new iPhone to download the new software
