What a restore does is return everything back to factory settings. Another words it will all be gone...songs, photos, videos.
Usually you should do a back up before installing new software.
Newbie question...how do I do a back up? Sorry if that is a really stupid question.

I haven't updated it because I've heard a lot of bad things about it. I have friends with the same complaints about battery life not lasting as long and their phone freezing. I have great battery life, so I don't want to do anything to mess that up.

Also, aesthetically, it isn't as nice. It doesn't appear as friendly, which is what was so appealing about the iPhone.

Everytime you sync with iTunes it backs it up UNLESS you are backing up to iCloud (phone setting). I do both just to be extra careful. To back up to iCloud go to Settings/iCloud/Storage & Backup/ and turn iCloud storage on. It will automatically backup next time you charge your iPhone, it's locked and it's connected to WiFi. If you do that and still want to back up to your itunes, just toggle that off next time you sync and it will make a back up there as well.

Thanks. I already have all the iCloud stuff turned on.

I have had problems with previous updates, so now I always wait a couple of weeks before I install the update to let everyone else work the bugs out

you can ONLY downgrade to a previous version if you have jailbroken your phone and stored the shsh blobs for the version that you want to downgrade to, except in a very brief window while Apple signs both the last an the updated version -- a window usually less than 30 hours long.

If only for this reason, i would jailbreak my phone.

Also note that the 3GS does support icloud as well -- as long as you upgraded to OS 5.0.
