 Indeed. I know someone who bought an iPhone 4 two months ago. A 4! I told them they should have gotten the 4S. Their response? "This does what I need, and it was free." I do wish they had paid the $99 or waited two months and gotten the 4S for free, because I think they would have liked Siri, but it shows that there are people who are satisfied with less than the latest-and-greatest. Me, I'll be getting the 5S. Looking forward to it!
Perhaps the best, most detailed explanation of the problems that I've seen:   The Gathering Storm: Our Travails with iCloud Sync

Not reliably, but they certainly do. Sometimes I listen to podcasts with my iPhone in my pocket, and I've had it annoyingly skip to the next episode when I'm walking. I've learned to make sure the screen is either turned off or turned away from my body.
Ah, that explains why the iPod shuffle and classic [should that be "iPods shuffle and classic"?] are the same way.No kidding. Wow.
