    As good as my phone is running, i am not certain I want to wipe for 4.0...Although, I am starving for something new right now. Heck I may stay the way I am until it's cracked.

    We don't even know what's on 4.0 yet.....
    Whatever it is I will most likelly wait for a jb to be released.
    Stock firmware don't cut it any more.

    Why got to 4.0 when your JB can offer you the same thing now?

    I jailbroke for two reasons: GV Mobile and tethering. I no longer need tethering like when I first jailbroke. GV Mobile+ has already been sent to Apple for approval, and if the gods deem appropriate, it may return to the App Store. If it does, nothing's really keeping me JBed.

    I'll update to 4.0..... but not until the DevTeam tools are released.

    I am very patient. :cool:

    After all, anybody can have a "vanilla" iPhone :rolleyes:

    i'm not leaving jailbreaking, apple will never allow you to do everything you want on your phone, i'll wait till 4.0 can be jb and actually i'll wait till most of the jb apps and tweaks i have no are 4.0 jb compatiable. even for stupid reasons like having rotating collection of backgrounds behind my apps i would miss staring at a black boring screen :D

    Who's going to leave X product for Y product even though we have no idea on the feature set of Y product/if Y product exists?

    Aside from not knowing what will be on it, I know for a fact that not all the cool stuff I can do on JB now will be available, so it would have to be some really, really cool feature sets to drop some of the awesome JB functions / apps outright, especially the one's I've paid for like Lockinfo. Though plenty of freeware apps are still worth JBing for—like SBSettings and everything that goes with it, and the cool new (new to me) audio to standard BT headset.

    I like my jailbreaked phone... it actually feels like "mine" and not some normal regular iphone that looks the same accross the board. 4.0 will have to wait.... at least until a JB is out for it.

    Jailbreaking makes the entire device slow and sluggish. I found a few cool apps but nothing to convince me that jailbreaking is worth it. I'd rather stick with what Apple's design team thought to be well designed and aesthetically pleasing, not some 3 year old and a crayon. I mean, Apple's design team is pretty spot on, the unibody, the iMacs, etc.

    Like when 3.1.2 was released, I upgraded my 3G on day one. I'll likely leave the 3GS on 3.1.2 until the jailbreak.

    I can't believe people think jailbreaking slows down the iPhone.

    Not if I have to go back to the regular text message app. I love tlert, where you can text anywhere. Love that app. Makes you appreciate the little nuances in the jb community that improves your phone experience 100%.

    One of these days when I'm really bored, I want to totally change the interfacte of my iphone and do away with the stock icons. Till then though...

    When I had my 2g it was slowed down but with my 3gs, man that htink takes a beating and keeps going.

    Maybe, if I have a bunch of cool apps running in the background. :D

    Otherwise, performance is just fine. I've seen no change.

    You can jailbreak without changing the appearance of your iPhone. :confused:

    Apps/capabilities worth jailbreaking for: Backgrounding/multitasking, Skype VOIP over 3g, tethering, and xGPS.

    Philosophical reason to jailbreak: It's MY phone, not Apple's. If Apple wishes to maintain ownership of iPhones, perhaps they ought to lease them rather than sell them. LOL at them for trying to use anti-piracy laws to maintain control over my property: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9127978/Apple_iPhone_Jailbreak_hack_violates_the_law

    If GV Mobile+ is accepted and added to the App Store I would un-jailbreak now (is that really a word?). The only other thing I use is SBSettings and I can do without that.

    what an idiotic question when no one even knows what OS 4.0 even holds yet.

    My 3GS is on 3.0.1 - untethered. I will not be updating. I have no problems with 3.0.1 and see no reason to update something that has no issues (even if other people experience issues)
    I can understand people wanting the latest version on their iPhone but for the sake of a few addons that jailbreaking probably already enables, I find it useless.

    3x added what? MMS? Jailbreaking enabled this before. And various other functions.
    Tethering is also a major part of my iPhone, I used to carry a nokia around with me just for tething with my iPhone SIM until I was able to enable tethering. Now I want for nothing :D

    I am so sick of people saying this. Jailbreaking doesn't slow your phone down. At all. The only thing jailbreaking does is remove the chroot jail and install some basic Unix tools. It installs nothing that runs in the background, it modifies no other system files. If your phone is slower, it's because you installed applications or daemons that run in the background after you jailbroke.

    My 3G did experience some lag after JB modifications, but my 3GS doesn't show that lag.

    The issue being, most JB to add or make modifications.

    Therefore, with 2G and 3G the end result is some lag.

    I've never had that happen. I have all three, 2G, 3G and 3GS all jailbroken. The 2G is on 2.2.1 so maybe that makes a difference.
