    Anyone else torn on this? :confused:

    Sell 4S now for more $ and upgrade to new iPhone but have to wait months for jailbreak of the new iPhones chip?

    Or wait until the new iPhone is finally jailbroken, then sell 4S and upgrade?

    I know I'll be the one to make my own decision in the end but wondering if anyone else put there is feeling this same way and your thoughts on it.

    4S jailbreak took months to get here :(

    In your case (as jailbreak is important to you), sell at the two month mark. You avoid selling at a time when the market is flooded with used 4S and if the iPhone 4 is any indication, the price difference between now and at the two month mark is only $15 for a jailbroken and unlocked 32GB. Sell earlier or later than that and you will get less (at least after the iPhone 5 is unveiled).
