Apple "Apple has released iOS 4.3 a few days ahead of schedule for iPhone 4 (GSM only) and 3GS, iPad, and 4th-generation iPod touch. The update, which comes via iTunes, brings with it the personal hotspot feature carried over from the Verizon (CDMA) iPhone, the ability to stream video and photos to an Apple TV via AirPlay, HD video out, and more."

I'm fairly certain your phone still makes calls, surfs the Internet, receives e-mail, and runs applications. No one's forcing you to replace your phone.

Indeed. Most people (normals) don't really care.

If you do care get an an easily rootable android phone (there are still Cyanogenmod builds for the G1). Basically, this means get an htc as they are the least hostile (I suspect that internally they support the idea).

If you owned a phone where you can barely open the maps without freezing or opening a simple old game without crashing you would understand.

Updating it to 4.0 was the worse thing I could ever do, but still, I had no choice, because without update, tons os apps would not work

4.2 made it a little better, but it's still very slow compared to first releases, so I was here hoping they would fix it on 4.3. But no, Apple just give me the finger. And still there are people defending them.

The 3G is a 3 year old phone, which is actually running the same hardware as the original iPhone(4 years old), only difference being the 3G radio.

The cellphone industry is typically a 2 y life cycle with many ppl upgrading every year at special upgrade pricing.

Heck, a 3yr old desktop would be getting pretty long in the tooth, and your phone is technically running 4yr old hardware.

Why do you post a video that has exactly zero relevance to the current discussion? That's showing 4.0. I have a 3G with 4.2 and it works just fine. Quit yer bitchin. It's an old phone, it works fine with 4.2, and it's not like 4.3 is a huge update.
