    Simple question, let's see what the majority is. Do you jailbreak?

    When it was released today , I did end up jailbreaking and thus far I'm loving it.

    Used to but don't really feel the need to any longer. I still like a few options made available by JB (SBSettings, 5 icon dock, used to use BiteSMS and Lockinfo) but at this point, really don't miss 'em and honestly, with 3 crazy little kids keeping me busy, barely find time to use my phone or iPad as it is :rolleyes:.

    Nope. Like keeping the phone the way Apple intended it to be. :) Nets me the best battery life and performance too.

    Stock is so bland, jailbreaking is the only reason for me to keep an iOS device

    There is a jailbreak tweak called SBSettings that helps with battery life. It gives you one spot to manage all of your devices settings. I can turn Bluetooth on and off with 2 swipes, same with wifi, 3G etc; also you can remove all of your background apps with 2 swipes which helps majorly with battery life.

    True and standard on Android. Cant believe they still dont give you those options w/o a jailbreak.

    I'm fine both ways (stock or jailbroken)

    I just got the jailbreak though and I don't see myself going back to stock. I like the SNES gaming emulators + Bluetooth wiimote too much to give it up ;)

    Well, my iPhone 4S isn't jailbroken, although my iPod Touch 3rd gen is, and I probably will jailbreak my 4S sooner rather than later :)

    I love the fact I use so many useful tweaks yet the jailbreak still maintains the fluidity of the UI and OS.

    I'll always jailbreak. Then the first thing I like to do is change the AT&T carrier name to whatever I want.

    People who don't jailbreak IMO are missing out. The iPhone has so much more to offer and it's evident when you jailbreak. There are really some convenient jailbreak apps that make the phone so much more enjoyable to use that make you wonder why Apple doesn't implement. I also buy all my apps and support the developers.

    I've always been against jail breaking but once you do it, it really opens your eyes. It also doesn't seem to have slowed down my phone at all.

    Used too but now I dont see the point.

    I never really need to use something like sbsettings that often, now theres notification center.

    I might considering jailbreaking if Apple doesn't support the iPad 1 with iOS 6. Once Apple stops supporting the iPhone 4, I might consider rejailbreaking it.

    I have jailbroken every device I've owned in the past except for the 4S. I may in the future as I do miss My3G but I really like not having to restore using iTunes for updates (maybe that's been worked around?).
