Angry FUCK YOU APPLE!!!!!

Steve Jobs can go suck a fat nut. I absolutely refuse to purchase another Apple product for as long as I live and this garbage iPhone is half the reason. No this isn't an iPhone 4. This is a 3G.

First Apple requires me to update my damn OS to 4.0 otherwise I can't download apps or music and use various other features. This slows my phone to a snails pace (it won't even answer phone calls without crashing to a black screen sometimes). A new update is released so I update it hoping that maybe my phone will run a bit faster. Let's start this fucking fiasco.

This is all to try and get a simple update on my phone.

First iTunes won't let me take music I downloaded to the phone and put it on my computer. After 15 minutes of trying I said fuck it I just won't ever download music to my phone again. Then I try to update it and backup my information. It hangs up for 15 minutes at about 80% through and locks up so I have to kill iTunes externally. Fucking great. I try the download again and the phone won't backup. Fails repeatedly. Next I try a restore... once again fails and now I can't even use my fucking phone. I do a hard reset and plug the phone back in and try everything all over again. Finally this piece of junk works.

If this thing is still slow as molasses in a blizzard then I think I'm going to call Steve Jobs and tell him he can suck my balls. I know I he wouldn't even consider a refund of my money but at least I can give him a piece of my mind. When the primary features of your phone don't work worth a damn then there is no point in continuing to pay for it. I'm debating on buying a cheap POS phone to get me through the next year on this AT&T contract and then going to Verizon.

My 3GS has sucked ass since the update as well. Seems like everything just decided to run at half speed since the 4 came out.

Apple... it just works.

Or at least you better hope it does because good luck getting customer support. I lost my itunes library and was told their policy was I couldn't redownload songs so I needed to repurchase them.

That was the last time I ever used itunes.

I've got a 3gs, at first it was slow as shit, but after most of the apps updated to 4.0. its running business as usual.

As far as your 3G, take to and Apple store and bitch, if nithing esle, you'll get a "refurb'd" one with the new os already installed.

Run an older OS and jailbreak that bitch.

My 3g did the same thing and so did my wifes. iOS4 update to the 3g/3gs platform was Apple's way of telling you to buy the new phone.

Yeah the update is glitchy and slow and the only solution Apple has told me is to try and Restore the phone. Seems as though that's the answer to all problems. RESTORE. Fucking bitches

being deployed when this happened to me sucked. i had itunes crashing during syncs.

the root cause was a Windows 7 update. sorry even though i tried to figure out which one it was i was unable too.

to fix this i had to reformat my M17x. updated everything and it happened again. uninstalled the updates that caused it the night it happened - same night i DL the updates. didnt fix it.

reformat the M17x again. all is good but i cant do any windows updates. ill wait till i get back to the states and i have time to download each update one at a time. i cant out here due to battery time with the "space heater". we cant plug in at the wireless hot spots here. i only got 2 hours to play with it.

my iPhone 4 and 3G run fine. the iPhone 4 smokes the 3G. i have no issues with phone calls or signal strength. i dont drop calls here, when i do get a signal. the 3G will take 3-10 seconds longer to open apps when compared to the iPhone 4. this is due to more background programs running with the OS 4. the 3G and 3Gs dont have the memory and cpu to run the latest software.

im happy with the iPhone 4. though i would like to update my laptop. gaming wise, i can still play any game on max settings and enjoy a seemless gaming experience. LoL so im not too concerned about the windows updates.

Agree 100%. My 3G sucked since day one, had it replaced twice within first 2 month. Shit crashes non-stop, does not respond to a touches. I have 20 more days of dealing with this POS and AT&T shitty coverage. 3G my ass, my phone is always in edge mode this helps me drop less calls.

Will defiantly purchase android next, need to decide between T-mobile or Verizon.

My 3G went from very laggy to "reasonable" after I did all that.

Not T-Mobile. Trust me on that one.

If you can live without a full smartphone, check out Straight Talk from Walmart. $45/month unlimited talk, text and data for 30 days without a contract, carried on Verizon's network.

Try this. I had issues trying to get the iOS4 update, the backup part was taking forever, etc. etc. After a little research, I found that if I delete all the garbage off my phone, meaning tons of old text messages, and a bunch of useless pics I didn't want it is helpful because otherwise ALL that stuff needs to get backed up. The second thing, and probably the most important, is sometimes a previous back up can be corrupted in iTunes, and totally fubar the update process. I deleted my old saved backup, and everything went smooth as silk. Not noticing any performance issues with iOS4 on my 3G in the couple months I've had it.

Also, as far as music goes, don't buy from itunes... buy MP3's from Amazon. Itunes music is proprietary to itunes and won't play on all devices. MP3's play everywhere.

First thing to help with the slowness is to do a restore and not an update. once this is done you can restore a back up, then go to settings, home, spotlight services and turn them all off. I had to do this on my wife's phone and it did help.

I never understood all the bitching , I have had a iPhone since it came out and I never had the problem people have had , I am no apple fan , but damn all I ever hear is how the iPhone sucks , it just gets old , it's a computer with a phone , so there is always stuff you have to do to keep it running right , you don't plug in your desktop and you are done with it

people fail to realise its not a requirement but a privelege to own an iphone or any similar device. they demand respect and expect everything to work. its software, software like Jeep Projects are never complete and have flaws.

I know it is not a right to own an iPhone. The fact I have a phone at all is a privilege. What pisses me off is when I pay good money for something and it falls apart after a year of average use.

Following your example. If you paid $100 for a throttle body spacer only to find out that 11 months later it has significant amounts of corrosion and you were told when you purchased it that with this brand of throttle body spacers you wouldn't have to worry about that for at least a year, wouldn't you be pissed off when they say... Oooh sucks, you should buy our newest one.

Not trying to argue. I just want to get rid of the image that I'm some college punk who believes I deserve everything I want, because I know I have to work for it. I don't need to show my facts but rest assured I didn't loaf around at all this year.

Anyways as for the phone. I couldn't find the Spotlight Search under General in Settings. I'll try a restore and see how that works. Next year I might get a Droid if I can afford one. Glad I didn't buy this POS when it was new.
