Of course they are... When the conveniences of expandable memory and replaceable battery don't sustain a consistent profit, time to butcher the essentials.

Who the hell is still using an iPhone 3G or 3GS? I mean seriously? Those are ancient and I wouldn't be surprised if they have security flaws.

The iPhone 3G came out 7 years ago.....7!!!! Do you know how long that is in the technical world? Apple is doing whoever still has these products a service by not supporting them anymore.

If you have an iPhone 3G and it breaks....GET A NEW PHONE.
