iOS 4.0 Upgrade Problems Slow Old iPhones

X

I have just dumped my iPhone 3G for the HTC Desire after an upgrade to iOS 4.0 virtually bought the device to a standstill. Attempts to access mail accounts or the Internet had slowed to the point that access was becoming extremely difficult.

Applications like Google Maps and Co Pilot ground were even more difficult for the simple reason that most times that I needed to access these mapping services I was in a rush.
Being a technology writer I should have known better, but instead I paid the penalty of responding to an Apple prompt when I docked my device with my iTunes software.
It appears that I am not alone with several consumers hitting the forums in Australia to complain about their iOS 4.0 upgrade. Yesterday I had no alternative but to twice reboot my iPhone.
I was also prompted to replace my SIM card despite the fact that the SIM card was in the phone at the time of getting the prompt. 
My dilemma now is that I cannot go back to my old operating system which raises the issue of whether the upgrade was a giant conspiracy to get owners of older iPhones to upgrade to the new iPhone 4 which is itself facing antenna problems. 
Anthony Agius, founder of the Australian MacTalk community website told the Sydney Morning Herald, that update was a “disaster” for iPhone 3G owners.
Last week the US and UK media identified issues associated with the antenna on the new iPhone 4 however I am not too sure whether those problems exist in Australia. A Telstra source has told me that they have found it hard to replicate the problem on the Next G network in Australia.
These sources claim that the poor network performance of the US AT&T Network could be a major contributor to the iPhone 4’s problems in the USA which is an issue that Apple are trying to address with AT &T.  
Apple has offered all iPhone 4 buyer’s free “bumper” cases that reportedly fix the antenna problem.
