way back in the 3g days, it was better to wipe
your phone clean as new then load the new IOS.
Is this still the case with the 4 or is everyone
just hitting "update"??
Whats the best method??

No need, don't believe there's a diff between doing it or not.
But instead of hitting upgrade, hit restore. Same thing, except for some reason hitting upgrade button will spit an error out whereas using restore won't.

Update just updates your FW whereas restore wipes your phone and starts from scratch.
Minor FW updates are fine with update but major updates should always be a restore and re-install everything. 90% + of all problems are caused by restoring a backup made in a lower FW version. It is far better to just synch everything back and not restore a backup.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
