I ordered the 16GB today. This is replacing a 16 GB 3G. I even still had the old unlimited data plan that I had to change. I mainly am interested in the camera and faster processor. I only filled up 1/3 of the 16GB in three years so I should think I will be good to go.
I will almost be up-to-date. I have a new iPad 2 but still need to upgrade to Lion.
Also-- can't wait to see how much the camera will be an improvement over the 3GS!
Huge.. really.. I mean the 4G was a huge improvement so the 4Gs will be even better. The 4G had a 5 element lens and the 4Gs has a 7? ...something like that..plus more megapixels. Not too mention the low light capabilities were vastly improved.
I made this available a while back and thought you might appreciate it. I uploaded the 20 minute 720p video I shot at a Rush concert earlier this year. Beware, it's 1.6 GB. The video is pretty damn good for a camera phone and the sound is decent also. The low light improvements over the 3 series is verrry noticeable.
Edit: I chopped the file down.. too much time uploading... it's now about 3 minutes and 240 MBs.
In a few minutes look for a clip of my adopted daughter playing in a water park...
And if I showed you a clip of her from the previous year on a 3Gs you would just laugh at the quality difference. Honestly.. I would be hard pressed to distinguish it from a decent full on camcorder. To me.. that justifies the cost alone. I have a hi-def camcorder at all times in my pocket.. ready to go.

my plan still said Unlimited for $30.00 ! ??
Yep, you're still grandfathered-in =D
I tried pre-ordering and converting my number from AT&T to Verizon, and the site did not like that *at all* -- told me I had to go into an Apple Store to complete the set-up. Of course, the Apple Store folks told me to come back on the 14th ... so poo ...
In other news, it looks like your phone will be locked to your provider at purchase and it remains to be seen if you can ever unlock it (er ... "legally") to switch providers ... between these guys and the cable companies, the rules they make for these things seem more and more like arcane, hallucinogen-induced rituals than anything a non-initiate can understand ...
iPhone 1 (2007) It died about 2+ years after I got it, and I bought my current 3GS.
FYI a friend of mine who just got an iPhone at the end of the Unlimited period a few years ago but he got to keep his Unlimited plan. When he went to AT&T to order the 4S, it tried to switch him out of it of that plan, but at Apple.com he had to choice to keep it.

Stood in line this morning and got two -- one for mom and one for moi + switched from AT&T to a Verizon family plan. Apparently, that I already had a mobile hotspot account with Verizon threw a wrench in the in-store activation, although it eventually worked out ... two hours later =P
Setting stuff up on the new phone and am about to take the plunge into iCloud! =D
