Ios4 upgrage for 3g

I have an 8gig 3g.(stone age I know) and everyone I talk to tells me not to do the upgrade. Takes forever and works like crap after. Suggestions? Input?

I upgraded to iOS 4 on my 3G and it's pretty terrible. I'm getting an iPhone 4 next week so it's no big deal for me. I've used it on a 3Gs and it feels exactly the same as on the iPhone 4. Only the 3G is crazy slow. :(
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

You might try a full reset and restore, I've been told that helps with making iOS 4 run better on the 3G. Good luck.

I've tried everything suggested to make iPhone 3G usable with IOS4 and its still horrible. If you van avoid it don't update the software until apple fix it, I've heard rumors that they're working on the issue..

I did a complete restore on my 8GB iPhone 3G to install IOS4 and it works well. Every night I power down the phone and restart it in the a.m. so that might be part of the reason it works OK.

I had a similar problem until I switched to the iPhone 4 if you keep going longer without powering down it gets worse locking up completely. Powering down regularly fixed it for me.

I have to take my 3G to the Apple store and let them do the upgrade. Seems my Windoes XP shuts iTunes down when it's within 1oomb or so of the download. Haven't had a problem in the past, just since the version 4 came aboard.
Any ideas on how to make the thing work?

All but the first generation of iPads can run iOS 6 which is the current version. The first generation is limited to iOS 5.
