    so my lady friend just got a new 3GS (I finally convinced her!!!!) and im curious if there are any reasons not to update it to 4.2.

    I love 4.2 on my iPhone 4 but when I asked the ATT guy if it already had 4.2 on her 3GS he looked at me like I was an idiot and said "you dont want 4.2 on your 3GS man, its bad news".......

    i've looked around for a bit and done some searches but cant find any real negative reviews about 4.2 on a 3GS aside from the few features it left out that only the iPhone 4 got.

    so MacRumors, what do you think?

    4.x is awesome on my 3Gs. No need to go iP4 for me.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Its fine unless you want to JB then you might be stuck with a tethered JB.
    If you plan on staying stock I dont see a reason why not to update to 4.2.1

    If there're any plans to go overseas, it's also a bitch to unlock.
