    Had iOS5 on my 3Gs for a few hours now and overall it's pretty good! :) Yes some areas are a bit slow/laggy but they're aren't many bugs and I think the new notification thing is pretty cool.

    So if you ooing and ahhing about putting iOS5 on your 3Gs, I would say yes because it's pretty good for me :)

    But, what about battery performance?

    And, we don't know how it'll perform when all of iCloud's features are up and running.

    No, no front-facing camera on 3Gs.

    Yes, I was pretty worried while I was installing it that it would be like the 3G with iOS4 because you can't go back it iOS4 once you've installed it!

    Exactly. Looks like Apple has learned from iOS4 running on the iPhone 3G. Can't wait till this Fall!

    Very impressed with iOS5 on the 3GS to be honest. In all fairness, after about the first hour of use, I actually find it faster than 4.3 which shocked me. It's very smooth, yes there's a few bugs (it's a beta so hey!), but it seems that us 3GS users don't have to throw our phones in the bin just yet which is just brilliant!! :D

    When updating your 3Gs phones did you keep all your sms messages, etc?

    I didn't, I decided to do a completely fresh install and not restore from a backup! Well, I say 'decided' I actually mean, I forgot to backup before restoring so I couldn't restore :(

    However, there should be no reason why it shouldn't. Even if you do a backup first, full restore with iOS5 and then restore the backup it should have your SMS's there.

    If you backup before you do it then it will save them however if you are an idiot like me and forget to backup then it won't!

    So far today, the battery is about 5% than on iOS4. So not much difference really which is good :)
