    Currently I'm running a 2.2.1 jailbroken iPhone. I would only want to upgrade to 3.0 if I had a 3G S. Here are a few things explaining why

    1. Landscape keyboard - although it seems awesome, I'm well versed with using the normal keyboard. I also am typing with my phone a lot while doing something and it's hard to type landscape with one hand.

    2.) MMS - I've managed to not use it for a year and a half now. I never really used it before either.

    3.) Spotlight - How hard is it to find something on a phone?

    4.) Voice Memos - Have two apps already.

    5.) Improved Calendar - It's not too shabby as of right now. I have like 3-4 things on it per week as well so it's not my full time personal assistant.

    6.) Buy Movies, TV & Audio Books - The first two I might as well wait 'till I get home to download. Those two things are going to take FOREVER. My YouTube app takes forever and the quality isn't even good.

    7.) Enhanced Stock App - OKAY APPLE, I'M SOLD. No, I'm not.

    8.) Tethering - I have NetShare.

    What I do want

    1.) Cut, Copy & Paste

    Also, redoing jailbreaks are a pain, at least for me.

    Nobody's going to force you to.

    BTW, you forgot Safari is snappier. No really, it is.

    While I understand that you're happy with your JB iPhone, many others (including myself) are hopeful for certain things to be a part of the OS instead of having to pay more cash to get what we need. I understand to JB means the apps are free, but I shouldn't have to JB my iPhone to get what I want.

    That said, you are probably not the only one not looking to upgrade the firmware but you're probably in the minority. Either way, to each is own.

    Everything you said is still no reason to do a free update. You can just not use the feature you don't want and use the ones you do want. I'm just really confused what your thought process is with not doing a free update?????

    When it can be jailbroken I'll update. Until then, zero interest.

    If you upgrade, you probably won't regret it. Not only is Safari snappier, the whole phone itself is snappier! I can't believe how much faster all apps open up and run. It's worth upgrading just for the speed boost IMO. But also, it's nice that Notes sync now in 3.0. For some people, it's worth it alone for that.

    And this is why I am not rushing out to buy the new 3Gs.
    One of my bigeest things about jailbreaking is I enjoy looking at the phone. I particularly do not like the stock dock. the white dock background doesn't do it for me.

    there is too much I like about the appearance and functionality with jailbreak that will prevent me from upgrading until jailbreak is available

    You completely ignored Push Notifications? Those are a big part of 3.0.

    Spotlight is great for finding emails because it even searches your trash and such. That being said, I often forget to use it. However, it could speed up launch time if you use it regularly. No need to flip through 9 pages of apps, ever. Just flip to the spotlight page and type what you want and it will launch for you! (I use spotlight all the time for launching apps on my mac, it will just be a matter of time until i/you get used to having it available on the iPhone).

    I'm looking forward to the new features in 3.0 but not looking forward to the crashes and other bugs common in early releases. My 2.x OS is rock solid right now. I go weeks or months between crashes or times I need to reboot the phone. The early days of 2.0 were rough. Safari crashed all the time. Hopefully 3.0 will be more stable in the early going.

    I'm pretty confused as to why you wouldn't want to upgrade. What's the loss of upgrading? You will still be able to jailbreak after your upgrade, I would understand you not wanting to upgrade if it would affect something negatively or if you would lose something, but it seems like it's nothing but gains.

    Yeah, you are probably the only person that wants to stay at 2.2.1.

    I've been using 3.0 for awhile now, and it's much better then 2.2.1.

    For people like me, with multiple e-mail accounts and close to a thousand contacts, it's extremely useful. Obviously not all features will be relevant to you personally, but that doesn't mean they won't be to someone else.

    I thought I'd chime in.

    I'm running the 7A341 GM build right now and I've been seriously considering downgrading back to 2.2.1 again. Yeah, I'll miss copy and paste but 2.2.1 is more polished then 3.0. I wish I show you what I mean, but it just doesn't seem like Apple software right now. 2.2.1 was perfect and worked very well. Do not upgrade to 3.0 until at least 3.0.2.

    Copy, cut and paste alone is worth the upgrade, even the pain of re-jailbreaking. It works incredibly well.
