    Is there any benefit to jailbreaking the phone?

    I am an at&t customer, so there's no issue there. had the 1st gen iphone, now on my 3g.

    never done a jailbreak. i love the apps now.. is there a point to jailbreak?

    You get all the lovely apps that Apple will never approve.

    OpenSSH.

    Apple doesn't allow every app. This is where jailbreaking comes in =D

    i'm glad i did it.
    quake, NES, run apps in background, and definitely ssh (access to iphones file structure)
