I used to be on Team Jailbreak. However, the Mobile Substrate which is installed when you Jailbreak makes your phone really slow. And, sometimes you get runaway processes which kill your battery really fast. I found myself constantly troubleshooting problems with my phone and needing to restore when it was Jailbroken.
Now I am on Team Pure and have only had to restore my iPad once (accelerated battery drain), and have never had to restore my iPhone 4. It just feels so much better to be able to use my iPhone without constantly needing to tinker with it.
The things I miss most about Jailbreaking are SBSettings and BiteSMS. However, since iOS 4.2, my battery life has been so good that I don't even need SBSettings to ever turn off Wifi, Bluetooth, Location Services, etc.

bored with JB. Team Pure.. for nowsometimes you get runaway processes which kill your battery really fast. I found myself constantly troubleshooting problems with my phone and needing to restore when it was Jailbroken.
i am going to wait for the untethered 4.3 jailbreak to be available (bug-free) along with my favorite JB apps/tweaks to be updated (whenever that may be) and even then i'll have to see where i am at with all of this Team Pure stuff
it's going to be weird but i figured it might be a nice break

IT JUST WORKS!
That statement says it all. I've been an iPhone owner from the beginning with the 2G, 3GS, and now iP4. They've all just worked and the next one was always better then the last one. But the one thing that made it complete was Cut & Paste, along with the App Store. After adding that feature set IMO the phone was complete, staple, fast and just worked right out the box. I'm with TEAM PURE all the way with my iPhone. Now the iPad is another story. It keeps crying out to me to be Jailbroken. Really starting to creep me out (LOL ).

my battery life has been surprisingly decent considering all the drama that i have been reading here and everywhere else. so if it gets better than this it's definitely a Win situation for me
swipe to unlock issue simply does not happen that often for me..
i guess in a weird way it has been nice not having to micro-manage. i will be anxious to see if i can maintain this decent battery performance (or better) with the "new jailbreak" & setup..
LOL have fun you know I'm in the same boat but a whole whack of bugs have annoyed the crap out of me so I"m not sure how much longer I can take this. So a new question for all the people who have posted so far, do you experience any of the bugs? if you do how frustrating is it? how does it play into your "It just works"? I wish Apple would just continue to sign the previous firmware every time they release a new one. I would downgrade to 4.2 in a heartbeat if I could right now.

I have been JB before but I noticed the sudden speed drop the random springboard crashes and cydia apps are sp unpredictable they may not (even if they say they do) once an update turned an app into an IPhone killer then ended up with a bricked iPhone plus whats all this nonsense about being abler to live without improved notifications yet I download lock info I have for a few months then when I unJB I nearly noticed a difference as everything is already covered just in a different perfectly fine way os sob story no diffence high/easy break rate that is why there is no point in having a JB DEVICE

Coming from a Blackberry fan for years i had to jb my iphone. i do love the iphone but you are so limited on what you can do unlike my blackberries. I would not be satisfied with the iphone if i couldn't jb it. I absolutly love it now. If it wasnt for Jailbreaking i would have gone back to RIM.

I dont jailbreak because, as it has been stated so many times, "it just works" I do not want to worry about the what-if's
and even if Stevo came knocking at my door to tell me it was ok, I still would not. the iPhone does everything I need it to do, consistently, smoothly and with great battery life
