Haven't been compelled too do it. Now that I know I've I know I'm keeping my 3G for another year and the warranty is up I might look into it. I'm also concerned about how it might run, hacked things don't normally run as well in my experience.

After 3.0 I just have not found a very compelling reason to JB at this time. Sure JB allows you to do some things that would be cool,(ie Winterboard) but for what I need the iPhone to do.... It is just fine the way it is.
The only reason I would JB now would be to take Video shots. But with only a 2 meg camera...mehh. But that is just me.

I've read, on this site particularly, about too many people that have had problems after jailbreaking. I am not willing to mess with a good thing. My phone is fast, smooth and just works! Why should I mess with that? Give me a good reason I should jailbreak. Themes? Naw, those don't matter to me. Background? Naw, I really haven't found a need,yet, for that. Any thing else?

Here's a few reasons Apple stands where it does on jailbreaking
Crashes & instability
Malfunctioning & safety
Invasion of privacy
Exposing children to age-inappropriate content
Viruses & malware*
Inability to update software
Cellular network impact*
Piracy of developersí applications*
Instability of developersí applications*
Increased support burden*
The Apple/iPhone brand*
Limitation on ability to innovate

The phone just works.... Now what I would be interested in is unlocking the sim cardso when I travel outside the US I can use a local sim. That is even low on the list as I have 2 unlocked BB that can pull the travel phone needs. So basicly I dont have a need or want right now...

I have a slingbox. I came from WM where I could use my sling on my AT&T Titan. When I got my iPhone and they nixed 3G slinging I was pissed. That is what caused me to jailbreak.
I don't do any of that theme stuff, I have one thing from Cydia and that is 3G Unrestrictor.
I'm a weekly traveler and I must have my sling. The airline industry is pretty messed up and I can't take delays without it.

I haven't found a good reason to jailbreak my 3GS just yet. It does everything I need as is. However, I did just jailbreak my iPod Touch 2G, just to see what the process was like and to determine if it would be worth it for my 3GS.
BTW, I also come from Windows Mobile, and used to flash my devices with "3rd Party" ROMs all the time.

Before jailbreaking my 3GS, I was planning on trading it in and going back to a Bold. To be honest, I was bored very quickly by the lack of themes and customization. Now that my 3GS is jailbroken, I am in love with it and would not consider trading it for anything. I don't care about updates, they are never very usefull. I don't care about warranty, I'm getting whatever Apple comes out with next summer (4G?). My 3GS is just as fast, has no bugs, and is completely customizable. In essence, it is better than when I purchased it.
