    :( Ok, thanks

    Also -

    I'm using a 3G 3.0 - 04.26.08 on t-mobile. Can I upgrade to the latest update from Apple and continue to use T-mobile?

    Thanks

    Yes you can update to 4.0 but you will have to jb again and install ultrasnow from cydia.

    Great! Thanks.

    So I should just backup the phone - then upgrade JB and Unlock - and Im done.

    Will all my data be maintained?

    if you have a regular 3g iphone. not a 3gs.. DO NOT UPGRADE TO 4.0 I've heard many things that it will run laggy and buggy.

    Good point. I rather have 3.0 running good, than 4.0 not good.

    I went ahead and jumped to 4.0 on my 3G. I find it just as slow as it was before. Of course I had backgrounds running before on 3.1.2, so maybe I'm just used to it (or I have a bunch of patience).

    The Jailbreak was easy. I tried two different methods. First was Snowbreeze. Was simple enough but email push was broken (I think because I hacktivated). So I then tried Redsnow, which is much easier. Update to 4.0 from iTunes then run Redsnow to add Cydia and other functions (background, multitasking, etc.)

    I purchased a 3Gs off eBay, got a great deal, but it came with 4.0 already on it. Can't wait to be able to Jailbreak that.

    Give it a try.
    If you dont like it you can go back down to 3.1.3 again and JB and unlock.

    How would I be better off with the upgrade? What does the upgrade really do to the phone?

    manually back up your pics - 4 times out of 5 a backup fails to save my pics. Dead serious.
