    My iPhone 4 is running so slow!!
    I didn't update my iPhone 4 in about a year because my computer crapped out on me. I bought a new MacBook pro and updated and rebooted my whole phone. Now my phone loads up very slow. I can't even watch anything on YouTube or my Netflix. My iPhone was running way faster before I updated it.

    Is anybody having the same problem?
    Does anybody know how can I fix this?

    Thanks

    Are you sure it’s not your internet speeds that have slowed down for some reason? Or do non-internet application run largish as well?

    Would Updating change my internet speed? The speed up uploading and downloading changed dramatically right after I updated the phone

    No, updating has nothing to do with your internet speeds.

    I can tell you that the problem is definitely on your end -- I and a number of friends around North America have iPhone 4s on the latest iOS and they run fine.

    You might try a complete reset ... also, be sure to let us know if the phone is jailbroken, as that could be playing a role.

    I did a complete resent twice. The phone is not jailbroken. My provider is AT&T. I had AT&T your years and never change my plan, so the Internet speed should be the same right? Should I call AT&T to see if there is any changes to my plan?

    That's an excellent idea, would not have thought of that.

    Is it only internet speeds that are slow, or do native apps (that don't use the net, let's say Angry Birds as an example) also run slow?

    The only thing I can think of is perhaps your phone is getting too full? How much free space is available on the phone?

    I still have a lot of free space due to the full reset. It deleted everything

    Is the internet sluggish everywhere - meaning in a coffee shop or some place else besides your home router? Are we talking internet access via Wi-Fi or over the cell network?

    Wifi connections are good. I called AT&T and they said internet will be slow for unlimited user due to high usage. WTF. It might be time to switch company's.

    That would have been my next guess... the country's backbone needs to catch up with the capabilities of the mobile nodes.
