    I have done it many times and every time it works fine for a week then starts moving slow like a windows computer with viruses.

    You need to provide more information...

    What model iPhone?
    What are you installing via JB? (i.e. Backgrounder, winter board, etc..)

    Have you tried restarting it?

    And how many jailbroken apps are you putting on in that week?

    There are a ton of apps on cydia/rock that are memory intensive and not really optimized properly and therefore make your phone run terribly slow.

    Thats the downside to jailbreaking - the apps that are on there can be poorly designed and have huge flaws when running with other apps.

    Winterboard will kill the 3G. That's why apple didn't let 3G users to customize their home screen background.

    Winterboard themes can slow your phone down, depending on what they are modifying.

    If you experience a slow down with Winterboard installed, try changing themes, and see if you can narrow down the culprit.

    It's not. Most iphone users aren't interested in JB, which is why there's a hacks thread.
