    Dictation is very accurate. I use "new line", "period", "comma", etc. to avoid run-on sentences or confusion. Like everyone else, I'm going to familiarize myself with Siri & the camera. Both are brilliant!

    Yes, I am happy. This is a huge upgrade to my 3GS. Once I got to having about 8 apps open, the phone would lag, but I had over 16 yesterday without any problems.

    I'm so glad I made this purchase.. I craigslisted a 32GB white one for AT&T and couldn't be more excited. This is coming from someone who had an iPhone 4 before also. It is just an amazing phone! It's great to finally have that dictation feature for texting, and a much more accurate camera (my reason for upgrading). Definitely worth it.

    You can tap and hold over the word with your finger and a magnify glass will pop up. And you can put it exactly where you want to edit or delete text

    Not a single vote yet for "not happy". That's pretty impressive.

    Yeah this iPhone is pretty much amazing. People get hung up on the case and say that it is not a new phone. But if you look under the hood and combine that with new software and better hardware it is a NEW iPhone. No one complains that the BMW M3 has looked the same for the last few years. What something is iconic and already has an amazing design why not keep using it.

    I went from a Straight Talk thing to this, so I'm pretty damn happy. I get a UPS employee discount through Sprint, so this is only costing me around $15 more per month

    Got mine Fri and then headed to the mall to get a Zagg protector put on. Finally activated it today. Did it thru icloud with my old iphone 4 backup. It is still loading up some of the apps but overall everything got restored and it even kept the folders I had made for the apps. I had some trouble with siri at times with in not responding. I did find out it wont read e mails since i asked it. It will tell me how many i have and show them but says cant read them. Was able to send text and e mail with it. THere is an app that I had found that will read your mail as well as calender, and news feeds. Its called voice brief. Overall like the update.

    I'm thrilled with my purchase. It just feels so much faster than my iPhone 4. The camera is amazing. And Siri is fantastic. Plus i went from a black 32gb to a white 64gb. The extra storage is so nice to have.

    Ecstatic with my iPhone 4S. Love seeing the word "Sprint" in the upper left hand corner.

    I can't believe how much faster my 4s is compared to my 4.....yeah was hoping for a bigger screen but I just went with a white phone instead of another black one so it seems "newer"

    It's definitely faster than my iPhone 4 was. I am not overly impressed with the camera so far, the pics seem duller (due to IR filter?) than my iPhone 4 pics were. It seems to not focus well either.

    It definitely takes better low light pics though. f2.4 is niiice.

    Mmmmm.... still deciding. Love Apple and apple products, and this is my 4th iPhone... upgraded to 4s mainly for Siri which isnt blowing me away yet but i am reserving judgement for now as i am sure the servers are getting hammered.

    I will mess with it/study it then make up my mind.
    Really like the iMessage app.

    I can not find my pictures on my computer, Apple site says, "C:\Users\Apple\Pictures\Photo Stream\My Photo Stream", but it is not on my computer.
    To use the camera from the lock screen you have to double tap the home button and it will appear. The "reader" function for web pages appears in the address bar when you click on a link to a story. It is a really sweet feature.

    So far yes, I haven't done a lot with it but speed is a win. I do need to test the camera more. I don't want crappier pics that are just bigger lol

    Very pleased. I was skeptical at first, but this outshines my i4. I'm most impressed with the speed and smoothness. The camera is awesome. I told my son and he didn't believe me, so we both took a pic of a plant on the coffee table, he with his i4, me with mine. There was no comparison, mine was so much clearer and defined. I love the notifications in iOS5, and Siri is too cool.

    Yes, I'm happy. I kept the iPhone 3Gs and skipped the 4, so this is a pretty drastic upgrade for me. The speed is much better, both in terms of processing and 3G performance. The screen is nice, but seems a bit more difficult to read outdoors than the 3Gs.

    The camera is a huge improvement over the 3Gs, both for stills and HD video recording. I bumped up to 64GB on this one, so I'll have room for HD video.

    Siri is mostly for fun right now, but I'm slowly learning how to integrate it into my workflow. I played with dictation to reply to messages & Facebook. It does very well learning words, though I need to know if I can get it to include punctuation.

    Happy? ABSOLUTELY! Not counting the mistaken delivery of my new iP4S, to someone else by UPS, resulting in a delivery delay. I've been using a 4th Gen iPod Touch for about a year, so the learning curve was more of a flat one, for me, with this, my first smart phone. So far, battery life is probably going to be 48 to 72 hours, as I'm trying to watch my 2 gig data plan and using 3G minimally, at least for the first month. Most places I visit have wifi, anyway. So, no complaints for now.
