    Hi guys,

    Last time i've tried ios4 i went back the day after to 3.1.3 :)

    Do you have good experience since the 4.2.1 upgrade ? My 3.1.3 is not very fast, so what do you guys thinks ?

    4.2.1 will not make it any faster, in fact quite the opposite

    I can't comment on 4.2.1, but before I sold my old 3G I upgraded to iOS4 when it first launched like you and it was horrible. Then they came out with the next version which made it a little better but it was still slower than with 3.x.x. I was going to downgrade back to 3, but ended up selling it and getting an iP4.

    So unless someone can offer some experience to the contrary I don't recommend it. There's not that much to gain with iOS 4 on a 3G anyhow.

    I wouldn't do it. I use to have a 3G jailbroke on T-mobile. It was slow with 3.1.3, so I can only imagine what 4.2 would do to it. I got tired of it being so slow and switched to AT&T, now I couldnt be happier!
