Is anyone else who upgraded from the 3G or earlier just blown away by the speed?

    Of the iPhone 4. Webpages just load so fast, syncing huge navigation apps took almost no time.

    YES! Absolutley.

    I never cared about the 3GS because it didn't seem like a big deal but wow after using the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3G really feels outdated lol.

    Yes. Going from 3G to 4 is a HUGE difference. On the 3G, Navigon was bording on being non-usable due to lag. Now it loads up almost immediately.

    The speed difference is AMAZING. Things load instantly now, which was unheard of on the 3G!

    Yes! My boyfriend upgraded from a 3G and that was the first thing he said, it's so much faster!

    Kind of funny that the 3GS wasn't fast enough to upgrade, but the 4, which is only marginally faster, is blowing people's minds.

    YES. This thing is easily the best phone I've ever bought.

    heck I'm impressed. And I came from a 3GS.

    It was infuriating to use the 3G. If the 3GS hadn't come out I was going back to my Curve 8310 lol

    Yep, coming from a 3G the speed of the new iPhone 4 really amazes me. It's so responsive to touch and the typing doesn't lag like it did on my 3G. Everything on it is so fast. :)

    I remember my 2g to 3GS switch was mind blowing. So I can only imagine people coming from 3G to 4.

    exactly what i was thinking...if you owned a 3gs you would see how fast it already is.

    I'm waiting for the same thing. I tried the local apple store this morning and the line was insane. I'm going to try at At&t on the morning of the 29th for my wife and I. We are tired of our 2g's.

    I made the switch from the 2G to the 4....and it is unbelievable...not only the fact that I'm going from EDGE to 3G, but the apps and everything move so much faster. It's so awesome! I love this phone!!!

    Even from my 3GS i can notice a huge difference. iPhone for and iOS4 work together so nicely! I''m sure they'll get bogged down a litle after a while, but it sure works smooth right now

    Geez that is a huge step. I remember when I first got my iPhone 3G I didn't have 3G service where I live so I turned it off and used Edge for about 4 months straight. Then one day I just turned on the 3G and I had 5 bars everywhere. Huge leap lol.

    Quite a few 2G's to 4 here. It's definitely worth it!
