The iPhone is perfect. It has iMessages, SMS, Calling, it has the iPod app (the best music app on any smartphone), and has tapatalk which is used for browsing forumz. You pretty much HAVE to get the iPhone.
That being said, the iPhone 4 has the much better display (Retina), it has 2 cameras, I think the iPhone 4 has better cameras than the last. It has facetime, it has a better CPU thingy (A4 I think) and it will be supported longer than the iPhone 3GS will. The 3GS is pretty much unsupported now, so it would be like getting a 8800 GTX now. Sure it can do the job fairly well, but go big or go home. And think about it, this will be your phone for 2 years is it? Do you really want to start of with a phone that is already ancient?
There's a reason the phone is free. You get what you pay for.
