    Mine's not sluggish at all, and I'm coming from a BlackBerry so I'd know about sluggish ;-)

    Will your iMore login credentials work via the Crackberry site? If so, use it and discard your other one.

    Default Is the iphone 4 still worth getting?

    I'm still rocking the iPhone 4, it's excellent. Only downside really is that some modern 3D games run a bit slow, and maybe the lack of Siri (but Evi is available). Didn't bother upgrading to 4S because I'm still in my contract period and the upgrade wasn't worth shelling out £500 for. Probably going to upgrade to iPhone 5 when my contract runs out next year but I'm still happy with 4 for now.

    Siri is only available on the 4S and the 5, but you will be able to get the Passbook app. For a list of features, go and then scroll down to the "Version History: Portable iOS Devices" section and check out the feature listing.

    Spend a little more and get the 4S. I have iPhone 4 and its sluggish since OS6 but on OS5 it was pretty good.

    Overall simple tasks are pretty fine on OS6 but if you run a game you can feel the lag specially when you get Message or toast notification. But if you are not running any heavy application its very much doable.

    I still have a 4 with IOS 6.1.3

    It's gotten a little sluggish recently, but not that bad. I'm up for an upgrade, but not sure if I want the 5 or wait to see what happens in Sept. If I wait I can either get a newer device or save some money on the 5.

    Tell your friend to upgrade at Radio Shack or Best Buy. He will probably find a better deal and they sometimes allow you to trade in your current phone.

    The only way to get Siri on the iPhone 3 or 4 is with Jailbreak

    Scrolling kinda sucks on the 4 in a few apps (the App Store being one) for me, but it's still a solid phone.

    If you want to jailbreak though make sure you're not getting one on 6.1.3

    If you do jailbreak installing Siri is relatively easy, though I've had issues making it work so I went without

    It's still a good phone that you can count on several years of support ahead of it.

    Just found this forum - they are offering me a free iphone 4 and I don't need to get data - wifi only. I just don't want to be to disappointed, but free is free.

    It's certainly a fine device for free, but understand that it is quickly approaching the end of it's relevant tech life, and after the next generation iPhone is released, the chances that you'll start getting more and more limited updates greatly increases. You've probably got another year of decent feature support, but then you'll be in the same boat as the 3G and 3GS, where your updates will be about 10-15% of what the rest of the iPhones get.
