    To any of you who have a regular old iPhone 3G, I'm sure your disappointed by the lack of features.

    However, I can't help but be even MORE excited about receiving my new iPhone 4. It will feel like these features just came with the phone and we get to experience it on the new and best iPhone hardware.

    Anyone else pretty excited because of this? The other 3/4th's of you I'm sure could care less lol.

    Even the compass will be a new feature to us.

    I think I'm mostly excited for a new camera and snappy A4 goodness. I don't currently have a digital camera and the 5 MP camera will be very welcomed by me. iOS 4 on my 3G is unbearably slow, especially since I'm used to my iPad's speed.

    iPad is pretty fast so I can see why your pissed. But I don't see that big of a difference between the OS. The only things that I have noticed so far is that the text messaging takes longer to open and so does the App store. Everything else seems about the same.

    Or maybe it just feels that way because I had my 3G jailbroken and it bogged it down pretty well.

    Settings literally takes 10 seconds from when I tap it until I see options.

    Doing a hard reset fixes it for a little bit, but eventually slows down.

    Thats really weird...

    My 3G is like lightening fast compared to before. It seriously feels like a new phone again. But im sure part of that could be because when i backed up somehow all my apps and music got deleted from my phone :rolleyes:

    I restarted my phone once since I updated and that was early this morning. Everything is still fast as ever.

    Nothing on mine was deleted, I just still have some jailbreak "add ons" still attached.

    iBooks crawls on my 3G. Basically it is unusable. Very disappointed.

    I think that's about the only thing on my phone that is very slow. I never dealt with iBooks before so I decided to flip through Winnie the Pooh...very sluggish.

    multitasking enabled through JB works surprisingly well on my 3G - I do not see any slow down at all and it is nice to have quick access to ipod controls, orientation lock button and state saving apps updated for iOS 4 (such as bejeweled 2). I do not recommend home screen backgrounds though - it does result in noticeable UI lag.

    3.1.2 OS never showed an issue with home screen backgrounds via Winterboard. Odd that iOS4 makes it sluggish

    file sharing also missing!

    Hi all, I'v read a lot about the missing features of ios 4 on the 3g. But I havent read anywhere that file sharing in itunes would be one of them. Apparently it is. Can someone confirm that this feature does not work on the 3g, cause im sick and tired of transferring pdfs via wifi. Additionally, if I am correct in that the file sharing does not work on the 3g, isn't apple's description that ibooks handles pdfs is incorrect since there is no way i can transfer the pdfs to my ibooks apps. lol

    Thnx
