Tell us more about your problem. The more detail you provide, the better.
You might want to check out these troubleshooting tips from Apple. One of them may help you if your iPhone seems frozen.

Frozen or unresponsive iPhone


Is your iPhone not responding or not operating as expected? This troubleshooting assistant can help you resolve these most common issues:

Display remains black or blank
Touch screen not responding
Application unexpectedly closes or freezes"

It can take a really long time to install, from what I understand, perhaps an hour or more.  If you gave it sufficient time and it still didn't work, you might want to consider downgrading to iOS 5.1.1.  I think installing iOS 6 on the 3GS is pushing it from a hardware perspective.  You might want to run over to the nearest Apple Store and ask some of the "geniuses" there for suggestions.
