    Since I updated to iOS4 on my iPhone 3G the damn thing is slow as a mu****a. Starting text.app takes forever, and so does photo.app.

    I guess there's nothing you can really do, just wanted to point out that my iPhone is slow as hell.

    ...I want that iPhone 4, now!

    Yeah my iPhone 3G is slower now too. Except the home screen icon-zoom animation is faster, strangely enough. But everything else has taken a sizeable speed hit.

    I guess that's the price you have to pay for the luxury of having folders :p

    my iPhone 4 is nine days away...

    Thanks for the heads up. Was about to upgrade my partner's phone to 4. It's a shame because I think she'd really benefit from the fast app switching for Angry Birds!

    Sure thing, but I have the 3G which doesn't support fast app-switching anyway. That will only work on the 3GS (which is quite a bit faster, so shouldn't take the same performance hit when upgrading to iOS4). Make sense? :cool: hopefully.
