I guess it depends if you have an unlimited data plan and do a lot of things that require fast speeds. I can only think of Netflix and remote desktop apps as apps that would benefit from 4g... right now at least. But even then, and this is just me personally, the times I would use those apps the most is when I'm away from a metropolitan area on vacation where 4g doesn't exist. I'm sure 4g or something better will become the standard soon, but I wouldn't base my purchase on it and I most definitely wouldn't pay extra for it.

I'm not positive, but I think this might be the first iphone that has a new feature (Siri) that won't be usable on any older iphone. So, if you're signing a 2 year contract and don't get to upgrade this thing for a year and a half without paying full price, get the 4s. The only thing I wouldn't do is pay full price for it if I was already in a contract.

It happened after an update and a lot of people had the same issues and there were some temporary fixes but it always came back. I don't know if this should be an issue with the 4 though, but who knows.
This is my one huge gripe about Apple products. They give updates to devices that probably shouldn't be getting them and then make it really hard to go back to an OS that worked. They are rolling out a lot of the iOS 6 features to the 3gs and if I had a 3gs I'd be waiting to upgrade until hearing that it doesn't cripple the device. Honestly, I might be doing the same if I had a 4 but I doubt it will be an issue since there's not a huge difference btw. the 4 and 4s hardware wise.
