There's a lot of people on the same boat. Many say that 3.0 is actually optimized for the 3GS, which I think is true because it handles it flawlessly.

I agree that its optimized. I have a few friends with the phone and it doesn't lag at all. It really makes me want a 3GS.

don't u have a feeling it's a conspiracy... they give you the upgrade knowing it will cause problems and of course we want to buy a new phone... i normally always buy the new products immediately but this time i'm just not that motivated to buy it..

I'm sure they will solve some of the problems with a future update. The same thing happened when 2.0 was released. It was buggy as hell. 2.21 was perfect for me. Wish I had stuck with it for a while longer until Apple put out 3.01

Yeah.. I don't think Apple purposely made it that laggy so that people buy the 3GS. I'm sure a lot of those bugs will be gone in 3.1. All these bugs always happen in a big update like 3.0 is.

iPhone may be a great device but it would be even BETTER without lag. I don't care if you have 3GS or not.

I find 3.0 to be the most stable of all the revisions. I don't notice much lag however, the lag I do have I attribute solely to the jailbreak. I was in the Apple store the other day and played around with the new 3GS and that thing is very fast compared to the 3G. Still doesn't make me want the S as I am going to be patient and wait until next summer to see what Apple has in store for us. My upgrade eligibility date is in September. I hope I don't get tempted!

Got the speed back up

I did some research and found the solution online to regain speed.

http://keyboarderworld.com/kbl/?p=153

check it out!

I was scared to try but then realized that Itune has a restore and a backup point. So no risk trying it.

Let me know if this work for you guys and if you have question ask away.

I really don't see how that would fix lag permanently. I believe the lag is based more on the hardware and memory specs, more than just clearing settings.

You have to remember the iPhone is a mini computer, and in order for it and any other PC / Mac to run properly, it has to have enough memory and contain a fast enough processor. Without that the system will just run like crap no matter what you try and do to it.

I'll definitely give it a try when needed, although I doubt it will do much.

I thought it was just my perception, but the phone does feel a bit slower with 3.0.

Two places that I notice it being slower. If I open an app immediately following the closing of another. The next app is really slow to load. Its as if there is some residual activity after closing the first app. Perhaps its flushing swap memory or something.

Also entering the first character or two of a text message or search will be laggy. It takes a moment for the phone to catch up. :D

That's what I felt also. Lagging letters while typing was killing me! My friend and I started thinking conspiracy! That maybe Apple intentionally slowed down the 3g to make the 3gs seem even faster! But lagging letters...I'm sure it wouldn't be accepted by Apple standards. I was thinking that Apple will fix this in a patch release or something...but I got impatient and started looking for solution.

My phone was DEFINITELY slower! took a long time for a keyboard to pop up, and when I hit the home button, there was a long pause then the home screen appeared right away, instead of the familiar "zoom" effect. I recently did a restore from iTunes, and that seems to make a big difference. Try it and see what you think.

I had to restore to get things back to normal. I tried that method above or "restore settings" but all it did was put my phone back to stock without an actual restore.

I ended up restoring as a new phone last night. Yesterday the battery just started draining crazy fast. It was almost dead by 2PM with 2 1/2 hours use. This happened to me before witht he 2.1 update and I ended up getting a new iPhone from Apple. Anyway, the restore has worked very well so far. Everything is snappy again like it was before I updated to 3.0. Still having some issues with wifi connectivity.

I just want the battery % indicator without having to jailbreak. That's all I care for right now.
