    I say don't do it.

    FWIW - I have a 3G which I upgraded to 4.0, and then 4.0.1. Performance got slightly better with the latter update and I've tried a few of the tweaks people have suggested, but it still is noticeably slower/buggier than before. Not worth it IMO for folders and a camera zoom I'll hardly ever use.

    I am planning on downgrading back to 3.x.x in the near future.

    I have a 3G and upgraded to iOS4, one piece of advice... DO NOT DO IT! I could not take it and downgraded to 3.1.3 and have loved it ever since.

    Dont get me wrong i love the Unified inbox and folders, but totally not worth waiting 17 seconds for your texts to show up.... terrible speed
