    friends commented that when they installed ios 5 on the ip4.. it left it the same in terms of system speed or made it faster.. well it made mine SLOWER.. and compared to a new 4s.. the 4 is same as 4s.. not sure what to do.. thinking of returning the 4s..

    also not impressed with imessage.. most confusing..

    going from a 4 to 4S might not be that big of a difference to some which is why im sticking with my 4. did you try to restore iPhone as new on iTunes. some have had success if they're having issues.

    your basically setting it up as a brand new phone so save your photos, calendar events, contacts all to your computer. all of your apps and music should stay in iTunes.

    right ok well i sync all that anyway.. i'll try it when i get back from returning 4s.. i kinda dont wanna return the 4s but kinda do.. my gut is telling me to.. so i should? :)

    and we think setting as new phone would help? maybe kinda sorta?

    its up to you on taking it back. is it necessary to have the new one. i wasn't impressed with the new features on the 4S so im sticking with my 4. i think the camera is fine, no need for Siri, ect. ill wait until next year. possibly for the "5"?

    by restoring as a new phone, your not restoring from a backup which can contain a possible glitch from previous backups. its like it straight from the box with no data. you would then transfer all the data manually as you want it.
