    Congrats on your purchase.
    No one knows when the JB will be out.
    My guess is 8-12 weeks but don't quote me.
    You may not want to jailbreak, so read the pros and cons first.
    There are tethered and untethered jailbreaks.
    Some Jailbreaks: redsnow, jailbreakme.com, and greenpoinson

    There is a tethered JB for IOS5 out. Just not untethered. Tethered means that you have to plug in your iphone to itunes if you reboot it. I am on IOS5 but am waiting for the untethered version before i JB.

    Tethered jailbreak is available for OS5. However, not for the 4S with OS5.
