(As far as I know) A4 is open 5th string (A!) or 5th fret on the low E string.

Those are A2. (110Hz)

Hmm.. According to Cakewalk, it's one octave higher than open A, IE; 2nd on G, 7th on D etc..

In standard tuning, it's high E, 5th fret.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Okok, here's the source of a some of the confusion...

Guitar sheet music played an octave lower than it is written, so your music programs may tell you that an octave above the A string is the same note as a 440 hz note, but it's actually 220 hz.

A 440hz A (A4) is indeed the 5th fret on the high E string (notice that I'm referring to the higher PITCHED string), as some people had mentioned. It's also the same not as the 5th fret harmonic of the A string and approximately the same as the 7th fret harmonic of the D string (which according to some quick and dirty math I've figured shouild be about 440.4972 hz).
