I want to go back to 3.0.1

Recommended Posts

I have 2 iPhones, one 3G and one 3Gs.

I want to go back to the old 3.0.1 as both phones are working so slowly I couldn't care less about the new features, I'll wait for my new phone when it's available in Italy to enjoy them fully.

Is there any way back?

Wow thank you.I should have Googled it myself.

It's not so straight forward though. I think I might wait until I have my new phone and then give it a go so at least it doesn't matter if I brick one of the phones.

Thanks again

I get that problem a lot. Trouble is, often forum advice is better than Google :)

evidently turning off Spotlight indexing brings the 3G phones back to speed.

 

To turn off Spotlight on your iPhone 3G navigate to Settings --> General --> Home Button --> Spotlight Search On/Off.

I must try that sounds too good to be true

Thanks

 

Was it too good to be true?

 

I'm thinking about trying to get my iPhone 3 back onto OS3.0. It runs really poorly on 4, and not just slowly, but all my apps crash all the time, even the iPod and SMS apps.

The 3G is doing a little better. I admit I still have spotlight turned on just for my contacts this combined with that latest upgrade has made things better.

 

I have resigned myself to the fact that I need to get the new iPhone. It's now available in Italy though as I am visiting the UK in ten days I'll get it there.

For some unexplainable reason it costs 60 euro more in Euroland than in Britain.

Apple continues to treat its European costumers like mugs. Sorry if I gripe.

Doesn't the EU have a higher VAT than the UK? That would account for some of the difference...

No.

The iPhone before tax in the UK apple store costs £424.68 = 509.148 EUR.

On any other apple Eu store the cost before tax is €549,17

There is only a 2.5% difference in the VAT or its equivalent which should mean a difference in price of about 13 EUR after tax, not 59 EUR.

:angry:
