I noticed in my iPhone 4S my apps don't update if I'm not connected via wifi. Sometime I leave my wifi on over night when I forget :p lol and I see some apps have been updated. But when I'm on 3G they don't update.

Do they update only through wifi?

Go to:
  • Settings
  • iTunes & App Stores
Check that you have Automatic Downloads for Apps selected & Use Mobile Data

If that's all selected (Green), check if you have Mobile Data turned on in:
  • Settings
  • Mobile
