    My previous experiences on iOS upgrades tells me to stay away and keep 5.1.1, but curiosity tells me to upgrade. I'll probably get a new phone soon anyway, but don't want to slow my current one down to a crawl in the mean time. In addition, I wont be able to get some of the new features anyway since its an older phone.

    Thoughts? For those upgrading today,let me know your 3GS iOS6 experience.

    If you're getting a new phone soon then don't upgrade and take that risk.

    Note that you will lose Google Maps on the 3GS if you upgrade. I know you can use Apple's Maps but most reviewers said it doesn't fully compare to Google's.

    You'll get some nice things in iOS 6 though: shared photostreams, Do Not Disturb, Facebook integration etc...If those are worth it, you should upgrade, as people say the speed of iOS 5 and 6 are on par with one another (some said iOS 6 was faster).

    Personally, I'm keeping iOS 5 on the 3GS because I'm getting the 5.
