    I have iOS 5.0.1 running on a 3GS and it runs just fine. You'll need to use iTunes to get the update.

    If 8GB of storage space is sufficient for you then it'll be fine. You need to determine for yourself how much space you'll need.

    Yes.

    Yes, iOS 3 was good too. 3.1.3 was probably the best version too.

    I'm not sure what you mean here.

    The 4/4S are much faster than the 3GS, but the 3GS still performs quite well in it's own right. You need to decide which you feel is more appropriate for you.

    No worries.

    My opinion is get the 4 or 4S so that way you'll have better hardware which can handle the forthcoming iOS updates as they happen and your phone will last you longer.

    If you get the 3GS, I don't know how many more iOS updates Apple will make for it, if any, and then you will be stuck with whatever the last version they release for it.

    so if i get 3gs will be bad or good in general and as u told me u upgrade to ios5
    but i dont know how its slow as u said slow boring or its fine?
    and for upgrade u aslo said its fine so if no new updates released i think ios5 will be ok as u say

    Ios 5 is actually way better than 3 and 4 as all apps require 4.2 up nowadays
