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…
- 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.
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.
Everyone has an iOS 4 review, or an iPhone 4 review, why shouldn’t I?
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:
- 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.
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
