Keep my jailbroken iPhone 4 or upgrade to an iphone 5?

Should I keep my jailbroken iPhone 4 which has unlimited data or upgrade to an iphone 5 with unlimited data?

If you enjoy your jailbreaks, then don't upgrade.

It all depends. How important are the jailbreak tweaks you have? If they are important enough then I wouldn't upgrade.

I'd keep my jailbroken device until the 5 can be jailbroken.

If you use biteSMS then I would keep the jailbreak until the iPhone 5 is jailbroken.

Don't do it.

I had the iPhone 4 jailbroken and it was nice. Now I have the iPhone 5.

Don't do it. You will love the iPhone 5 and be too happy.

Jailbroken 5.0.1. When Google Maps and an iOS 6/iPhone 5 Jailbreak comes out I'll think about switching. The Lightning connector and less compact form factor make it hard though.
