    There are a few, mostly related to hardware limitations. Location-based reminders and Facetime are the only ones that come to mind immediately. (The 3GS uses an older GPS chipset that draws too much power to be effective with location-based reminders, and of course it's lacking the front camera for facetime).

    my 3gs actually works surprisingly fast after the ios5 update. If I had known it would be that much better with the update, I may have seriously waited out the 4S, but the vibration button is broken on my 3gs so it was worth the upgrade :D

    My 3GS works great on iOS 5 but I did have to do a few hardware resets after the upgrade and sync. Battery life is better than 4.3.? which is a plus

    The camera kinda sucks on the 3GS for pictures that aren't well lighted. Other than that, it is a very solid phone considering its age.

    Considering how apple is about getting rid of older models, and not supporting older models in software updates, for the 3GS to still be around and get pretty much all ios5 features, that means its still pretty good.

    I remember when the 3G got ios4 and it was missing many features. that phone is horrible.
