Thumbs up for a jailbroken 4s. Thumbs down for this damned wi-fi problem with Netgear routers.

You can't go wrong with a 4S. I like mine so much, that I haven't even downloaded iOS 6 yet.

Im a longtime Android user who does not like iOS at all. The iPhone is just not able to give me what I want, Android gives me the freedom and functionality that im looking for from my device.

That being said, that is just my personal preference. The iPhone 4s is a wonderful device (as is the 5) and I would never steer anyone away who prefers the iOS experience.

But I would highly recommend that you steer clear of Sprint. They have the worst network that I have experienced. Horrible connection speeds and coverage in my area. They are not the company to be with. Your gonna have a great phone thats horribly held back by Sprint.

The 4S is a very solid device. If you want a bit more speed and bigger display , by all means get the 5. But the 4S should suit you just fine.

Walmart has the iPhone 5 for $127. I would definitely go for the 5. But the 4S is rock solid. My wife has it and she loves it. It is very well built and seems just as fast as my 5. The only bad thing is that it doesn't have LTE. other than that, it is a remarkable device. It may not have the latest and greatest specs, but it out performs just about any other smartphone outside of the 5.

I love my 4s and the only thing keeping me from upgrading is that I have everything I need. 4G hasn't been released in my area so it would be a waste for me to get the 5 and not be able to use LTE. You won't regret your decision.

I'd always default to the 5 since the screen size, LTE, and A6 are killer. However, the 4S is a great iPhone mini for anyone who doesn't need LTE and wants something smaller and less expensive.

Sorry kam,
No BerryWeather but lots of other good weather apps.
Get that 4S & don't look back.
Good Luck

You can change wallpapers and move icons around, there are no themes. I came from a BB9930 to the 4s and haven't looked back. The 4s is a great device.

To the OP. I made the switch from Blackberry to iOS back when the 3GS first came out. My advise is to go for it, there may be some growing pains along the way, but the end result will be worth it. Once you learn to let go of the ADD that Blackberry is known to cause you will find that you once again enjoy using your phone and that for the first time your phone is truly smart.
