Is this my first post? If so, hi all.
Ugraded from a 3G to 3Gs on the first day of availability in Oz. Also took the oportunity to dump one provider for another (we have 4 telcos here with the iphone). Porting the number and activation was painless and took about 20 mins. They even unlocked it for me on the spot. I nearly bought an unlocked one from Apple (you can do that here) but decided to get a plan and a free phone.
I has buyers remorse but now I'm pretty happy with the upgrade. More so when I pick up the old handset and see how much slower it is than the new one. Plus 32Gb will be nice. Compass may be handy but camera and video I probably won't use. Never did on the 3G. I carry a much better camera. Really happy to have volume controls on the headphone leads working (with my new inear headphones). We also get a better deal than many countries re costs as all the Telcos sell the iphone. I'm getting unlimited calls and text, 1.5GB data, tethering, MMS etc for AUD99 (USD78.00) per month. So I can cancel my USB 3G dongle as well and save another $40 per month. I just hope that I get enough for my 3G on ebay to pay for the contract break with my old provider.

I had a first gen iPhone and looked forward to the improved performance of the 3GS. I was happy with the improvements and then I pulled out my old phone (now basically an 8GB iPod Touch) last night to check an email as I'd already powered down my new phone. The difference is so much more apparent now. EVERYTHING is so much smoother, quicker. Very glad I made the switch.

I am quite happy with my new iphone. I bought an ipod touch a few weeks earlier and loved it so much that I knew I had to have an iphone. When the 3gs was announced I ordered it immediately paying about 175 bucks to leaven verizon. NOw that I have used it on AT&T for a week and a half, I love the hardware, as I knew I would, but HATE AT&T!! The coverage in our area is Edge and when I say edge I mean on the edge of edge. Sometimes it feels like I'm running a 2400 baud modem again. The signal was horrible on our family trip along the Blue Ridge parkway today. But my wife and son who have Verizon still almost never lost signal. And my Mifi device was the only way I could get online at times to tweet some nice pics of Mt. Mitchell. I asked when 3G was coming to the Hickory NC area and they said October. So four months with this network is going to kill me. My mifi will be on my only salvation many times.
Secondly, I had a windows mobile device. Copy and paste is so much easier in winmo. Multi tasking? Why can't something this good and feature rich do something so simple. Come on Apple. This is computing 101. But other than AT&T and that one minor thing (funky copy/paste - how did you people do this for 2 years with any copy paste at all?) and one major thing (multitasking apps) I am very happy. Whoops also forgot the complaint most of us have about AT&T. No insurance and no mms.

Could not be happier with the 3GS, it's just so much faster and smoother than my old 3G. I bought it on launch day and it puts my old 3G to shame. Battery life is significantly better, too.

Hot to the touch after 2 days, support said is normal under day heat but I have other blackberries who dont mind the summer heat.In addition ,the dell lap top company recall 1000's of their lap tops becouse the batteries exploded in the face of people. I assume the Iphone 3gs is having the same problem.

I only got my phone on Saturday so to early to say if I really like it or not but as I had an N97 for a day and have previously used Nokia Communicators and HTC this is a step up.
When my girlfriend finds out I've got one she will go up the wall she couldn't understand why I wanted to move from my Nokia 6300 and she can't work her Nokia's it's going to be tough explaining.
There are a few things I still want to sort out, Bluetooth connectivity, uploading pdf's onto the device being a couple very important to me.
