I have a 3GS currently running on iOS 4.3.5.  I mainly phone/txt/safari and I stream a lot of radio using TuneIn Pro (important app for me). 


I'm pondering an OS upgrade to 5.1....


I've been warned even by Apple employees (off-the-record) to not upgrade the OS to 5.xx due to performance problems.  They say the 3GS doesn't have the power to handle iOS 5.   Howerver, I've read recently that 5.1 is not as bad as 5.0 and 5.0.1 were on the 3GS. 


I don't jailbreak my phone (nor do I ever plan to), so I can't revert back if I try it, so I'm kind of skiddish. 


Any advice, pros/cons, would be appreciated.  Thanks!
