iphone seems sluggish
It's seemed to me that my iphone 3g has been slowing down over time. Everything just seems very slow and sluggish these days. I tried deleting half my apps (I'm down from about 5 pages to 2.5) and that may have helped a little bit. Rebooting helps a tiny bit too. Anybody have any ideas on how to speed this up. I'm thinking of doing a full restore and then just not downloading anything I don't use alot. Think that will help?

Sorry for not being specific. Thankfully data transfer is great! The issue is opening/changing between apps. Like when I'm in an app and double click the home button, it takes several seconds for favorites to pop up. Whenever I open Notes, it takes also a bit before I can start typing or switch between notes. Stuff like that.

If all you want to do is turn your device off and on, you should just be able to hold down the top on/off button without pushing the home button.
That way, you run less risk of applications being forced closed and leaving the persistent memory in an inconsistent state.
I find I need to do this every few weeks to keep my phone from slowing down.

Mine was sluggish as well, compared to my wife's new iPhone. Amount of data may be a factor, but I also removed background and winterboard, and it seemed to speed it up a bit. I recently had to restore it, and it seems faster now as well. I wonder if there is any sort of "defragment the hard drive" or something that can speed it up?
