To call 3G+ 4G with no functional changes is a lie plain and simple. I would prefer Apple had left me the option of killing 3G Data on my iPhone 4s than to submit to AT&T and Apple's marketing Department.
The iPhone 4s is a great 3G+ device that puts many 4G LTE devices to shame. Apple should recognize this and either have left the 4s as it was or add a 3G+ indicator rather than the fake 4G monicker.
My Two Cents!
well, No. 4g refers to the fourth generation of cellular data (thats what the G stands for) since iPhone 4s is using the fourth generation of cellular data, why would they not put a 4g icon? the fact of the matter is 4g is NOT that much faster than 3g was, its just newer
Actually it really is that much faster. AT&T just has faux-g and it's really just slightly upgraded 3g. If you will, it should be called 3.5g.

Jailbreak with the newly released "Absinthe 2.0.2" for iOS 5.1.1 then install "SBSettings" which will give you a dropdown from the status bar with a swipe. One of the toggles is... wait for it... "Enable 3G." Works like a charm, I use it all the time to toggle back to EDGE whenever 3G (sorry, now 4G) is lousy on my 4S running 5.1.1
