Back To The Future Day won't actually happen until 2015 (there was a big fuss when many thought it was actually this week) but I'll be celebrating nonetheless later today when I flip my iPhone OS back to the old school 3.1.3. I just can't handle the lag in iOS4 on my iPhone 3G anymore.
For me, the phone has slowed down considerably. It takes forever (15 seconds) to load apps like Facebook or my email lag or crash.
@sarahmedic is experiencing similar troubles.
"I find my phone supremely slow now," she told me via email. "Almost every app crashes. My
text app is insanely slow to type, send, & load my texts. I've had dropped calls for like the first time ever & like 3-4 in a row. Oh and the battery dies super fast."
"Generally I feel like ios4 broke my phone. made it worse instead of better. was much happier with my old os."
So Sarah is flipping back the calendar and I will too.
If you need to go back in time until you can get an iOS4 friendly iPhone, LifeHacker has the steps you need to take.
I do like the "view all" in my email, the folders are intriguiging and I'm straight away getting an iPhone 4 as soon as it's possible (and assuming the upgrade fee is reasonable), but for now I'm taking my 2008 phone back to an era where the OS is just a little more comfortable.
catch the buzz ... pass it on.
