Apple looking into the iOS 4 on iPhone 3G issues
The WSJ got a confirmation from an Apple spokeswoman that the company is investigating reports on the iOS 4 update going wrong all too often on the iPhone 3G. The hardware obviously slows the iOS 4 action to a crawl, draining battery and overheating in the process.

Some Apple-following blogs have even reached as far as recommending 3G users not to bother with the newest version of the operating system. Now that Antennagate is "solved", Apple should maybe advise users to just do a factory reset already, and stop poking it with their personal problems, as this seems to be the only current remedy.

Of course that's the remedy. Apple puts out something new. But don't install it or use it. And if you do, it's your fault.

I find it funny that every update google comes out with for android makes their phones better and better, but every update apple comes out with for iOS makes it crappier and crappier. ha

ahah is true this Os an the new Iphone 4 both suck, besides that's apple's trick to make the Os working properly on the iphone 4 a not on the other's,so you have to change your old phone for a new one.

Apple says: There's a case for that.
