So installed and running on my iPhone 3G, restored as new phone,( as supposed to backup of older settings) and then just added about 5 apps, thanks to mobileme all is synced.

Seems snappier, but then it always does at first. SMS app no longer takes 10 seconds to open, and the home button seems more responsive.

Went through all the settings and i cant see anything new and or improved, from the last beta.

Maybe im blind but i cant see the notes on whats improved in the dev center, only notes about SDK improvements. 

Il post any findings after using it more.

It seems that they're just adding more game center stuff. I can't see any other improvements in the release notes

Did a double hard reset on my partners 3G last night and that has solved her phones excessive sluggishness issues, have you guys tried that?

Hold both buttons until screen flicks off and then re-appears with Apple logo (Ignore the slide to turn off screen, keep holding dem buttons). Might take up to a minute for you to be able use it again, but it solved the issue for her.

Ive done the double hard reset, and also turned off all the spotlight search options, that does seem to have made a difference, although it seems the longer i use it the slower it gets.

Having less apps installed as well seems to help, although its annoying when it comes to using it and im out and i have to re download an app for something.

Running iOS 4.1 beta 2 on an iPhone 4, and iOS 4.1 beta 1 on an iPhone 3G.

Not having any issues with 4.1 beta 2 on iPhone 4 aside from minor quirks with contact info (birthdays are set to incorrect days and can't be set to the correct day no matter what I do -- always off by a day or two).  This isn't a new issue, though: it's happened since my initial update to iOS 4 on my iPhone 3G.

iOS 4.1 beta temporarily resolved the slowness/lag issues I was having on my iPhone 3G, but the crap performance bugs crept back in after a couple of days.  I've tried all the fixes: double reset, reset all settings, reset network settings, disable Spotlight, etc., etc.  Nothing worked.  These fixes would buy me about 36 hours or so of mediocre performance before the iPhone 3G turned back into a sloth.

Since upgrading to an iPhone 4, the iPhone 3G has gone to my wife, restored and set up as a new phone.  She hasn't complained of any performance issues at all, but this is her first iPhone so she really has no basis for comparison I guess.  Still, I've heard from numerous sources that this really is the Ultimate Fix for getting iOS 4 to run worth a damn on the iPhone 3G: rather than restoring from backup, set it up as a new phone.  You lose all of your application data (game saves, etc.), but it may be worth it if you don't have to put up with aggravating performance issues any longer.
