    Does it have to do with all the content on it? It used to boot about 15 seconds...

    Nope. I have been jailbroken and absolutely hated the stability and battery life, so I'm never doing it again.

    Did you try restoring? It shouldn't take that long.

    I have 7 full pages of apps, mine takes no longer than 30 seconds, ever. I also have filled up all of my 32 gigs of storage with music and videos.

    I have a 32GB model. About 75 apps, 500 songs, 11 movies and about 1000 pictures. About 3GB open. Takes no more than 10-11 seconds to boot up.

    Me too...

    Just as a point of reference, I too have similar issues. I have never been jailbroken, though do have all 11 pages full of apps. Still, I have about 10 gigs free on a 32 gig iPhone 3GS. Boot time or reboot time for me is nearly 10 minutes. I rarely ever reboot except when flying, but it is an extreme pain when necessary. If I recall correctly, I did not have this problem when the phone was new. Not that big of a deal since I rarely need to reboot, but still a huge inconvenience when a reboot is in order.
