    I only use my iPhone 4 around the house for now (WiFi). I don't have an extra cable for my iPhone 5 so I leave that in the car and go online with the 4 sometime. Don't know if I'll sell it or just keep it around as a spare. Do you think it's worth downloading the new operating system?

    On a 4 I don't believe I would update to iOS 6 unless there's a specific feature that you like enough to update.

    You would lose google maps updating which is something I've regretted.

    No additional user features that I've found on my 4 worth noting (Passbook? Pull-lease...), having moved to iOS 6 - and the Google Maps loss as noted above. Meanwhile, lots of reports out there of a battery hit experienced by some users.

    IIABDFI (If It Ain't Broke...) not something Apple seems to cope with well, while leaving lapses in their current iOS software...

    Being that you only use the iPhone 4 "around the house for now(Wi-Fi)", I'd say no. You already have an iPhone 5 and I am assuming you are pleased with having iOS 6 on it. However, you should also remember that the iPhone 4 is not as speedy and will not have everything associated with iOS 6 as it is with your iPhone 5. Furthermore, you're not certain that you will sell it or keep it around as a spare. At least determine what you will do with it before deciding to upgrade it to iOS 6. Anyway, I hope my response was helpful to you. Take care and have a great day...

    Thanks for the info and replies! I think I'll just leave it alone. The phone will probably end up in a drawer and only be used as a backup soon.
