Help: My iPhone 3G or 3GS is slow, how do I fix it?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 | Business | 5 Comments

My iPhone 3GS (yeah, the “fast” one) has been getting slower and slower since the iOS 4 update.  Recently calls have come in without answer buttons popping up instantly.  Whenever I call up the keyboard I can now type an entire sentence before seeing anything show up.

I have found something you can do to fix this…

Here’s how:

  1. Settings
  2. General
  3. Reset
  4. You want “Reset All Settings” – be warned that you will lose all of your setting information.  Generally this isn’t much.  You will forget your saved WiFi networks, and any Sound / Wallpaper settings etc.  You will NOT lose any of your email account information, photos, songs, data, bookmarks, notes, or application information.

This helped me a LOT.  Of course I did spend a minute setting up my old settings again.

I’m not sure if this works because after a while the “Multitask” bar gets extremely long or what.  It just seemed like a big “Recently Used” applications bar to me.

iOS4: Funny Video of Performance on iPhone 3G

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010 | Business | 3 Comments

I was told about this video a few days ago, but never checked it out until today.  I’ve been having very few issues with iOS 4, but I’m still on my 3GS.  I feel bad for those on iPhone 3G, and it’s very difficult to downgrade back to iOS 3.

AT&T iPhone: How to fix dropped calls!

Friday, June 11th, 2010 | Business | No Comments

Until about two weeks ago I was dropping calls every day.  After trying this fix, I haven’t had a dropped call since.

I don’t know if it’s a problem with my iPhone 3GS, or AT&T — but I know the fix works.

Here’s the fix… on  your iPhone do the following:

  1. Settings
  2. General
  3. Network
  4. Turn “Enable 3G’ to OFF

That’s right.  With 3G disabled, I haven’t had a dropped call.  With it enabled, I drop a call on a daily basis (if not more).

Sad it’s come to disabling 3G to be able to have a conversation on my iPhone.

Now every day at about 8am I turn my 3G off (I’m on wifi anyway) and turn it back on when I leave the house later on around 5 or 6.

Google Nexus One: New video, and ramblings

Monday, December 28th, 2009 | Business | 1 Comment

Right up front, I’m getting one.  Rumors say that it will be $99 for current “Google” users.  I’m hoping that means at least one of the dozens of Google services that I’m currently signed up for.  While I am getting one, I won’t be replacing my current iPhone 3GS with it, just testing it out.  Only if I really love it will I consider leaving AT&T and my beloved iPhone. › Continue reading
