I have a new iPhone (4s?) running 5.1.1 in Baltimore MD. whenever it is on it says 3G. Isn't it a 4g phone in a 4g area?

The iPhone 4S is a 3G only smartphone.

The iPhone 4S has the cellular radios to connect to the 3G CDMA EDVO Rev A network offered by Verizon Wireless. It doesn't have the cellular radios to connect to the 4G LTE network also provided by Verizon Wireless.

The iPhone 4S is a CDMA 3G only smartphone.

You can't connect to the 4G LTE network on Verizon Wireless
