    Could I jailbreak the phone and still keep it the same in terms of layout and app store and stuff like that?

    I only want to do this because I want to tether the 3G to the iPad once it comes out.

    Only thing you lose is the warranty if you bring it to Apple jailbroken.
    You can always restore and bring it in if needed in stock firmware.
    Besides that you dont lose anything and you have lots to gain....

    I've never experienced that. In fact, just last week I took my jailbroken 3GS in for a replacement (case cracks) and didn't bother restoring it beforehand - I never do, anymore - and they replaced it for me, no problem. They always do.

    Your taking a risk doing that though.
    You might get away with them not noticing it, you might not and then your serial number is blacklisted.
    If you got different themes and backround walpapers installed they will be able to tell right away along with the cydia icon etc...

    Just do a Full Restore if you ever need Apple's help.

    Simple.

    Once you start adding a lot of extra things ok cydia or whatever you choose, youll notice slight lags and freezes at times. If you keep it limted to the things you only news you'll be good. I brought it down to only keeping backgrounder & kirake and glasskart themes. System font changes and that's it.

    My lagging and freezing stopped because I deleted all the extra random things I didn't need.

    You'll encounter some performance issues (stability and responsiveness) while using your jailbroken phone, other than that there really isn't else your missing.

    some lag on the iPhone 3G

    almost no added lag on the iPhone 3GS

    still its worth jailbreaking JUST for SB settings alone

    I would agree but the sb settings drain the battery to much for my taste.

    Some companies will not allow you to access corporate email on a jailbroken device. They can tell if you are already jailbroken or if you jailbrake later.

    To the OP, in most cases you don't necessarily lose your warranty. I have always been jailbroken and taken it to my Apple store in San Luis Obispo and the only thing they ask is for my serial number on my phone. They don't go through it or anything. BUT, just to make sure, fully restore it before you take it in.

    this....and to the OP read his first post clearly, some see lose the warranty and get scared but as Applejuice says its can easily be restored to stock firmware if you ever have to bring it in, so apple would essentially never know you were jailbroken and your warranty is fully restored

    This is only partially true; once you've found the stable apps and removed those that cause glitches an unlocked iPhone can be as sturdy and reliable as it was before jailbreaking it. Mine is. And now it's all good.:)

    Totally agree with this. Don't install Winterboard and be careful with apps that depend on MobileSubstrate (some will cause issues, others won't).
