    I was curious to see who is still rocking the stock IOS or has everyone gone to iOS 5 Beta or JB?

    JB'ed right away when I got my iPhone4, but didn't JB my iPad2. Went back to stock on iPhone as soon as I heard about iOS5. Am waiting to see how that stacks up against being JB... If iOS5 is the huge improvement everyone expects, I'll stay stock. If not, JB here I come!!! And maybe even for the iPad2. Love the flex and improved capabilities when JB. Don't understand why the stock iOS is so confining.

    I keep my iPhones stock. If I want to do some mods it's more fun, with more choices on the Android platform. Just my preferences.

    The tiny iP4 screen is just too small.

    Besides if you do the math, the 4.3" Screens that are so popular with Android makers provide a perfect 16:9 ratio for widescreen movies.

    I was cautious of jailbreaking my iPhone 4 as I used it as a primary, and had 2 3Gs that I could mod to my heart's content, but then I got using BiteSMS on the 3Gs and when I switched back over to my 4, I knew I needed it. Jailbroke 4.3.3 with Redsn0w, and all I have installed is BiteSMS and SBSettings. Never looked back.

    As soon as the next iPod touch is released, I will jailbreak immediately or until an untethered iOS5 is released.

    Same with me. My iPhone meets all of my needs without jailbreaking.

    Me as well. I did jailbreak my old iPhone 3G a few years back but it didn't offer me enough extra benefits to bother on my new handsets.

    Ditto. I've never had the urge to remove 80% of the security and mod my primary (and sometimes on-call) phone. I understand that people do this and are quite happy with the results but I tinker with other things.

    Two iPhone 4's and two iPad 1's in the house. Both my phone and iPad are JB'd, both of my husband's are stock.

    Security is only an issue for those stupid enough not to read and follow directions to protect themselves, or who download pirated apps. Both categories pretty much deserve what they get, in my opinion. The rest of us seem to manage not to get in trouble with our devices JB'd for years on end.

    If I had to go stock, I'd buy an Android instead. There are WAY too many things Apple apparently can't be bothered to implement, and too many arbitrary limitations they impose on my ability to use my phone--like their ridiculous "12 items per folder" limit. iOS 5 adds absolutely nothing useful to me, so I won't be upgrading until an untethered JB is available.

    Beta software, on the other hand--no thanks. Been there, done that. I was in the industry for 20 years, and had to beta everything under the sun. My JB'd phone is stable, I'm not voluntarily adding buggy software to it!

    My husband, on the other hand, is mostly happy with his fully stock devices and up to date firmware...until he sees some cool feature on mine. He's sure to add iOS 5 the day it comes out officially. He likes his stock phone, and that's totally fine by me.

    i've tried both jailbreaking and iOS beta but stock works well for what it is. I dont' like JB and beta was buggy.

    I jail broke my phone for 2 things that I can't get as stock - sbsettings and more importantly sbscheduler - to turn down ringer volume when I'm at work, automatically

    I'm still stock. I don't really see anything jailbreaking could offer me.

    Same here. I've always ran stock OS on my iPhone. Never jailbroken any of the models.

    Every time I JB'd I noticed slow down after some time. Always end up going back to stock.

    I was using the jailbroken beta until I had my phone replaced after it got destroyed (for $249). I know use the stock OS as I'm happy just to have a working iPhone.

    Jailbroken but will try iOS5 once it comes out. If jailbreaking becomes more difficult in the future, I will give android a try as stock iOS doesn't provide everything I need.

    Tried iOS5, went back to stock 4.3.5. I haven't really been interested in jailbreaking for some time since most the features I wanted are available in iOS5 by default.
