iPhone 3GS, upgrade when flawless. Well let me say, I did a restore and then setup the phone like new. I didn't want to take any changes of having some issues pop up. I think most of the issues I've seen reported are directly related to upgrading. I say this because after they do a restore it works just fine.
I have used it a lot since the install and I notice no slow downs or lagging. I went to the gym, had Pandora playing, did some email, made a few notes on my to do list, replied to some email messages, checked stocks, even made a hotel reservation using Safari. It is so nice being able to fast switch between apps and have them come back right where you left them.
I am going to enjoy iOS4.

3G in da house
I have a 16GB 3G that was on 3.1.2 JB w\ pwnage tool. I synced, backed up and did a restore which prompted me to do a restore & upgrade to iOS4. I was surprised when the download went from 5 days to 15 minutes and completed real fast. The whole process went without a hitch.

No problems whatsoever on two separate 3GS upgrades and iOS 4 is a significant upgrade from 3.1. Love the folders featue, threaded email and unified inbox. Also backgrounds (finally) and the modern 3d dock (a la iPad). Like the multitasking a lot and the implementation is hugely successful in that my 3GS feels even faster now. Verry happy about this but it is slightly annoying that all the musitasking features are up to the developers, it will only work if they choose to implement it. Let's hope they all do and soon!
Would have liked a couple things: a reply button for incoming texts where it can be sent without having to open the messages app (this becomes less of an issue when all apps are updated to support multitasking/saved state) and generally improved notification system. There should be a notifications app with a badge to let you know how many you have in there where you should be able to see them all. Ie. You get a text and then an update from espn lets say, there should be a button in the last pop up to take you to the notifications app. Would be quick, easy and intuitive and much more functional than the current implementation where we only see the latest notification and that's it.
Really looking forward to iOS 4 for my iPad now for te multitasking. iOS 3.2 on iPad looks good it would benefit from folders, unified inbox/threaded mail and of course multitasking.

My 3GS updated to the GM build last week, runs great, so much snappier than 3.1.3
I get my iPhone 4 Thursday so the plan is to get it home, hit restore and restore the last 3GS backup I have from my 4.0 GM 3GS.
Also did a RESTORE of iOS4 onto my wife's 3G and worked fine, took a while but works great, she loves the folders.

So what's the best way of upgrading to IOS4? Itunes upgrade or what? I'll be setting up as new phone again. I must have Exchange working for work and contact sync through exchange. I'm jailbroken with Spirit. 16GB 3GS. I've always upgraded with iTunes and restored but I hear that it's best to setup as a new phone again.

updated, somehow the update got hung up half way through and my 8gb 3G dumped everything and started with new 4.0...tried to sync, got my aps back, no contacts, no ringtones...had to scroung around to get my contacts (i think losing them was more my fault then the upgrade) but even after itunes says my ringtones are on the iphone, i can only access 1 on my iphone. These are all ringtones that I made using itunes and they were working fine prior to the upgrade. Has anyone else lost theirs? Am i doing something wrong?
