    Hi everyone,

    I have an iphone 3g with the 3g software. I have not updated it to the newer versions (4g..iOS...) because I do not want to, it would run too slowly (I know I have tried).
    The problem is now I can't download most apps on the app store because they all require the most recent version of the iphone software.
    Is there any way to solve the problem? Would jailbreaking help? Is there a way to get these apps? Or is there somewhere I could get apps appropriate for my old iphone?

    Thank you for your help

    Unfortunately, no, you can't get those apps without havig the newer software.
