iPhone runs very slowly
So, my iPhone 3G runs slowly. And I mean very slowly - at least 3 times as slowly as it is supposed to run.
Is there a reason for this? Is there any way to speed it up? It's jailbroken - but that has nothing to do with the problem. It has been very slow since long before I jailbroke it. It didn't speed up or slow down after I jailbroke it either.
Could this possibly be due to very minor water damage? I dropped it in a puddle...but it didn't go all the way under water or turn off or flicker or anything like that..but I know a little water got in.
Anyway, are there any files I can delete or mess with or anything to speed it up? Please help. Thank you.

glass orb color, 5-icon dock, 5-column springboard, wave dialer, beach notes, illuminated (background theme), and a few others that i'm not using.
It's been slow since long before i jailbroke - I really don't think that's the problem. I have restored it before - and no change.

I don't think water damage would account for the slowness, that would cause other oddness, like screen flicker, or your presses not registering, and/or it would eventually cause the phone to not work at all. Plus it could and would cause visual stuff on the screen itself. Slowness sounds like you have software issues, background apps, etc, but I don't really know iphones. Did you do anything to draw out the moisture when the device got wet? Such as place it in uncooked rice, or in silica packs (the kind the pharmacy uses)? Too late now, but that is what you should do when you get a phone wet (and remove the battery, IF you can - which I know you guys can't ).

I have basically the same setup as the OP, 3g, jailbroken, HTC lockinfor, etc. and my phone is slow as mud. I can't play games like tap tap revenge on it because it slows down sooooo much. I did a backup restore yesterday and it is slightly better, but not really much at all. I'm just gonna get a new one, but it really is terribly frustrating.
