Personally I'm keeping a running list of the apps/reviews I want to try when it does get released.
Just starting to get anysy myself. Pod2g has tweeted in a week..not sure if that's a good thing as if he is busy working on a release or bad as in giving up..

Ha! This has been a fun read.
To answer the ORIGINAL point of this thread "How's everyone doing without a jailbreak?" -
Well, I'm doing OK, but, gosh, I really, really miss SBSettings! The Homescreen shortcuts help but they are no true substitute.
I pre-ordered the iP4s and got it on launch day. My iP4 (jailbroken on 4.3.3) went into storage while I played with the new toy for a week or so. Then I went back to the old phone for only a day.
I did like having the jailbreak back but the increased performance of the new iP4s is nice so I'm back to it full time. Plus, the coverage is better. There are a few spots on my drive home where the iP4 almost always drops calls and the new iP4s has yet to drop at those locations.
When the jailbreak comes out (and I say "when" to appease the Gods of Optimism) I'll wait a week or two for the first adopters to find the bugs and then I'm back on Team Jailbreak!

I want to use my unlimited data to tether my Macbook air and iPad2 when I don't feel like paying for verizon.
Also, I miss backgrounder... It seems to manage memory better for me and 3G unrestricted too... FaceTime, HQ youtube, and App downloads over 20mb.... YES PLEASE.

Also had three iPhones, never Jailbroke once. A little timid, but I'd really like to be able to tether to my xbox 360 like I did with my Pre Plus, without paying for it (it was legitimate with the Pre Plus).

I had my iPhone 4 jailbroken and absolutely loved what it gave me in terms of functionality. I haven't upgraded yet to 5.0.1 because I'm holding out the hope that the Jailbreak community will release an exploit that I can jump on.
Even though the new IOS has many of the features that I took advantage of with my Jailbroken iPhone before IOS 5, there are still a few features which mean a great deal to me which have not yet been implemented so I'm patiently (or rather impatiently) waiting for the latest Jailbreak to be made available.

I'm managing fine without it. I had my iPhone 4 jailbreaked, but I found the tweaks etc that I was able to do while I had it jailbroken caused issues with other aspects of the iOS, so I'm holding off for a bit to see if I would find any real benefit/useful feature from a jailbreak.

I have JB in the past.
I really didnt find it to be of any use beyond a novelty because I wasnt about to spend money for their overpriced apps.
If you dont spend money on your JB all you have is a few free themes, an extra dock icon and 5k fart apps.
But in the end... everyone has their opinions and can do as they please with their property.

The ability to reply/compose texts from anywhere with Bitesms is alone worth jailbreaking for, why Apple hasn't added this feature yet is a mystery, and Bite is FREE. SBsettings is free, Activator is free, in reality all the good jailbreak tweaks are free. All the fart apps are in the app store btw..
Not jailbreaking an iPhone is like buying a Ferrari with a 10 mph speed limiter on it, sure you can still drive it, but it would be useless and boring, that's how I feel when I use a stock iPhone.

Jail breaking is nice but I just personally feel like I had to spend too much time hunting for apps and worrying running out of free memory.
All the good apps are not found in the default Cydia store you have to search thru other sources.. and some of those are really shady.
I did more research than you are implying and I just dont see the real need for such small changes.

I'm new to iPhone and am confused about something. This thread makes it sound like we can not yet JB our 4S. Yet there is a website (jailbreakiphone4s) that claims to have JB software for a mere $20. What gives? Is JB software available yet or not? If not, is that site a total scam?

I'm patienty waiting, yet I can't wait to have SBS settings and status bar notification icons. I'm also looking forward to tweaks that integrate into notification center while maintaining a stock look. I'm not into doing crazy themes and changes.
