Super underwhelming, but I guess that's what you get for following the rumors!;)

Like many have said, if it was called the iPhone 5 many more people would be happier :)

But it should have been expected... 3G --> 3GS...all too familiar..

I will upgrade, the internal spec's of the new phone are impressive. Most people have got hung up on the name and the look of the phone. Now to see if I can secure one in the Uk on the 7th when pre-orders open.

So Im assuming that you could go there ( UK ) buy any one of the Iphone 4s's and bring it back here and everything would work 100%?
Im going to the UK on the 27th so I think I may get one.

Yup only the ones bought from Apple Stores though.

Apple Store's will likely not have stock on hand. They are the only ones that sell an unlocked device. Other shops such as Orange, Vodafone etc. are all locked to the carrier.

If you want to get hold of one you will have to order one on the Apple UK store which requires a UK credit/debit card, and which only ships to within UK.

Just a heads up.

Unless you find other sellers such as eBay etc.
