    "Running smoothly" is relative. Exactly what issue(s) are you running into?

    No issues. Thought there were iPhone operators who do things on a daily, weekly basis to ensure their device runs smoothly.

    Agreed with the shutting down-ness. I'm also currently in the process of recalibrating my battery. You'd probably want to do that once a month or so.

    I also use condensed air on it probably once a week, just to keep it clean (but that's really just an aesthetic/OCD thing :))

    Avoid updating apps through iTunes on your iPhone. Try to update them on your pc/mac then this will update them through syncing. If you find backups take forever it is always because of a corrupt app on your iPhone.

    I've noticed my 3GS is getting very jerky. For example, when closing an app, the home screen doesn't fly in, it sort of jerks its way in.

    It's definitely slowed down a lot (so much so I bought iStat to check it was using all the RAM).

    Mine Too

    Mine's been acting weird too, iTunes synch issues and what not.
    Not sure about that "updating apps only through your computer" though. :rolleyes:

    Hmm..., I've never worried about this. For me, I still won't worry about it and will continue to get my apps from the app store on my phone. I've never had a corrupted app.

    smoothly?

    My iphone only do that when i:
    - Put a manual original firmware on it
    - beware IM+, skype, mail accounts / calendars cause they drain battery ;)
    - beware some apps from cydia, dont install all u see.

    and thats it.

    Better than that is impossible :D
