My wife has a 4s with 8GB of memory. It is perfectly fine for her uses. I was going to upgrade to iOS 8 but have heard from a couple of people that the upgrade slows down the phone quite a bit. Any truth to this or should I go ahead and just upgrade it?

Thanks for any help.

Its perfectly fine.

If you're wife is anything like mine though she probably doesn't know what iOS8 is or care. Probably best to leave it. Although you wont get family sharing etc.

Actually do it. She won't notice the difference as she not some sad nerd with a stop watch thinking "oh my, on iOS7 that loaded 50 milliseconds faster" :rolleyes:

Thanks for all the quick replies....Monkeysee, you're pretty spot on with your comment, she really doesn't care or probably won't notice any difference one way or the other.

If I do decide not to upgrade, how in the heck to I get rid of the little red #1 that stays on the Settings icon on the home screen?

You don't.

Unless you restore via iTunes or "erase all content and settings".

Thanks again guys, looks like it's a moot point anyway....as I said, it's only an 8GB phone and looking closer at the update, there isn't enough space to upgrade....:)
