    Assuming this thing actually comes out. Will I have any problems when I connect to itunes and choose set up from previous back up since my 3gs is JB? I just JB my 3gs about 2 weeks ago so I'm pretty new to this whole thing. I'm debating on getting the 4G if I have to start from scratch as far as setting it up...

    nope, you will be able to setup the new iphone from a backup of your 3GS, but you will loose your JB apps and mods. There are backup software for that through cydia, cant remember what they are called though.

    Something to remember.

    A lot of iPhone 3Gs (not 3GSes) had battery issues when they restored from 2G backups. Something to do with the phones having different power management software. If I were you I'd just set up as a new phone, I know I will.
