I recently upgraded my iPhone 3GS to 4S and am a little ticked off and frustrated by how the 4S doesn't work in all the same areas that my 3GS did. When it does work... it's pretty fast. But... it works less often than my 3GS making my old 3GS more reliable. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a reason my iPhone 4S works poor in areas my 3GS worked normally? Is there a reason it has trouble staying on the 3G network in places my iPhone 3GS never did?

If I were you I'd sell the 4S and buy the iPhone 4, pocket the extra cash while you're at it, since you're unhappy with the 4S. I've been 100% happy with iPhone 4 so...I don't know if that would apply to you though.
It could just be a faulty device though, maybe have Apple get you a replacement and see how that goes.

Well you'll never know until you try to exchange it or just flat out sell it and get it out of your way.

I also went from 3GS ( witch I loved ) to my new 4s ( witch I would love if I could jailbreak!! ) but no complaints!! I don't have batterie problems!! No echo when headset on!! Siri sometimes don't work but that's it!! Speed is wayyyy faster and everything works flawlessly!!!

I updated from the 3Gs to the 4s and no big problems here. I don't really care for the battery with my 4s and waiting for the dev's to update the apps I paid for is a bummer because some don't work right now.

i also went from a 3gs to the 4s and have had no problems with anything. the battery kinda sucks but it does get used alot for music videos and web browsing so i guess it could be worse. I would do what I.Annie said and sell it and get the 4 and pocket the rest or take it to the apple store and get a replacement, the 4 is a great phone my wife has had one for the last year with no problems at all.

The major difference between my
3GS and my 4S is consistency and dependability. I could send a text message in more areas with my 3GS than I can my 4S in the same areas. The only time my 4S performs at all is when it's fast and had a strong signal. I could always patiently use my 3GS with a weak signal. But most of the time it's either my 4S works fast and near a strong signal or it just doesn't work. And when it falls on the edge network, you can forget it. Never happened this way with my 3GS. It was slow at times but would always work.
