    Hi guys wondering if you can help?
    I have just updated to iOS4 on my 8gb 3G and the only noticeable difference i can see is that i can put all my apps in category boxes of there own and thats it.Nothing else has changed.I don,t have the 5x camera zoom and i can,t have a homescreen background either etc etc.
    Is this because its just the 3G?
    Can anyone help me on this please?
    I have gone into settings but nothing new in there either,so iam puzzled by this.

    It's because it's a two year old piece of tech so no longer fully supports all the features found in iOS 4.

    Have you thought about jailbreaking to get these features?

    iPhone 3G (not 3GS, 3G) has the camera zoom.

    When you open the camera, tap on the image displayed and the zoom slider will not appear.

    iOS4 was required to run on the iPhone 3G because up until a few short weeks ago it was still current hardware, sold alongside the 3GS.

    It is, however, the same processor, RAM and various other bits of hardware as the original iPhone which was excluded from upgrading to iOS4.

    Background apps may run and you may get background wallpaper by jailbreaking however the experience won't be the same as on newer hardware supporting all of iOS4's features.

    Not better, not necessarily worse, just different.

    Your best off Jail breaking the 3G device now. the feature you get can match that of the 3GS and iPhone 4. If you have a look on youtube theres loads of videos of mulit tasking on a 3g device and it looks great. i did the same till i got iPhone 4:)
