    Just hit update. Everything jailbroken will be gone and a clean install of iPhone OS 5 will be left. Contacts and notes won't be touched. Also, be sure to back-up in case the update goes sour (which it can given the high traffic to Apple's servers).

    This isn't entirely true. I'm trying to do a clean install since I have some residual "stuff" left over from crappy JB apps and such. Example, I had Gridlock on the phone so I could put apps anywhere I wanted. It advertised that it didn't use plank web shortcuts to accomplish this. Well at some point that app broke and it put 10 blank web shortcuts on the phone. I go through and delete them. After I turn the phone off and back on, they magically show back up! This still happens after I upgraded the phone to iOS5. I'm in here now looking at how to erase the phone and install iOS5 on it and get rid of this annoying crap.

    Others who changed their carrier from AT&T to 'some name' also report the custom name still showing up and not AT&T.
