Problem with delivery... but I should still have my iPhone 4 by the end of the week!
Meanwhile, I’d suggest 3G users skip iOS 4: the hard reset fixed my crashes for a day, but they came back for good. Random reboots that take 5 minutes or more. several times a day.
And once when it happend, it totally killed the phone—wouldn’t even turn back on. I had to do a full restore. (Which thankfully now takes only 4.5 hours instead of the usual 9. But still—I can’t randomly lose my phone for 5 hours.) The full restore did not fix the crashes. (Which happen in any app—even Apple’s own.)
So, I’m going to use the iPhone as little as possible, hoping to keep it alive for calls, and then hope that my iPhone 4 does not inherit the problem!
(I may also try resetting network settings—but I’d lose a ton of wifi passwords.)
Sorry you've had all that tsuris - but iOS4 is working fine on my 3G, no crashes (and being jailbroken, I also have multitasking - tho' it requires a little 'user intervention' sometimes when it gets too low on ram...)

That’s good. Resetting network settings seems to have helped (but only half a day so far).
Now going through my Mac’s keychain looking for any WiFi passwords I don’t want to be without. Ack!
P.S. Apple’s sure got a PR problem: everyone on the planet from toddlers to grandparents is telling me I should cancel my iPhone 4 order because it can’t make phone calls unless you handle it just right. I think Apple could have done a little more to contain that kind of exaggeration... but there’s always the chance I’ll get a free case out of the issue one day
Resetting network settings didn’t help. The problem seems incurable. But I have my iPhone 4 now, so the 3G can crash all it likes.
I’d say iOS 4 is an unacceptable risk on a 3G. Might be fine, might be dog slow, might crash incurably. If I knew someone with a 3G I’d recommend they wait and see what happens with later iOS 4 updates. The problem, of course, is that some apps have been updated to be iOS 4-ONLY. And if you get those updates without updating the OS, the apps get deleted from your phone, along with your associated data—never to be seen again.
So if a person did want to wait on iOS 4, it’s necessary to read the sys reqs of every app update, and keep a mental note of which ones to avoid.
