Well the SMART thing to do is to load it up with apps. Install the ones you will use most often and set up your mail accounts and import your addresses book. If you are not going to download malicious apps and get all crazzy with myspace like themes and such and want to use the phone like a normal person would, then don't jail break it. If you want to go all crazzy then jail break. I'm happy with what Apple gives me

I don't feel a need to jb an ipad either, but an iphone is a different story.
Posting misinformation like you did in this thread isn't being helpful.

Don't jailbreak it! Yet. I would look around on the app store, and get some apps. Especially Infinity Blade! I would go ahead and buy it on your computer so it will already be downloaded, then just sync your iPhone, and you get Infinity Blade, and amazing, awesome app. Trust me. I have an iPhone 4 and love it!

First thing is look at these and other forums for apps. Many apps are free, and most are just darn cheap. Find something that appeals to your hobbies, interests, etc. For this latest foray into iOS land, I first loaded up my geocaching app and a few photo editing apps. Everyone is different, so do some searching for your interests in various iPhone forums.
Regarding the jailbreak thing, I would only recommend considering it after you're more familiar with the device and have had the chance to research it thoroughly. As far as comments on jailbreaking are concerned, I don't agree with the malicious apps part of it. Yes, there is the ability to do more malicious things when jailbroken, but to list that as one of the primary reasons is misleading. People jailbreak their iPhones in order to have more control over the multi-tasking capabilities, to use apps that "duplicate" functionality and are therefore not allowed in the app store, and because they like to tinker with technology. I would say most people do not think about using malicious apps, etc., as a reason to jailbreak nor do all non-App Store devs only make bad apps. But "opening up" the phone does require a little extra vigilance on the owner's part.
