But it looks like plenty of apps still run on it. Why do you want this update?
any way to get an IOS5 or 6 update for IPhone 3g???
i am surprised that people think that anything you buy should only last a couple of years, but that is what they are trying to train us to believe!
anything you get that costs more than a couple of bucks should last at least 10 - 15 years, and be supported by the people that made it!--THE TIME HAS COME TO REBEL AGAINST THE MACHINE!!!
anyway, thanks for comments and suggestions, and everyonr have a good one!, Jim
The phone you own still works fine, but you need to understand that it's an unrealistic assumption that ALL future technologies/applications/releases should automatically be backwards compatible.
Do you work with computers for a living, or know someone who does? In this sense they could explain it more completely.
Helpful Hint: you can buy a new Apple iPhone 4 for $.01 from several different cellular carriers now which can run all the apps you need(!) Your current device can be passed along to some kid who doesn't mind that the latest apps don't all work on it...
