I'm all about messing with my PC and will break it open and mess with the insides and stuff in the OS all the time. But my cell phone I just want to work. I used to dread having to mess around with my old WinMo phones just to get them to be usable to my liking.
Right now everything that is important to me works on the iPhone; the iPod, Safari, Email, Google Maps, managing content, using/getting apps, and sweet games.

I am happy with the iPhone as is for now. The Apps in the App store keep improving and making the iPhone better, IMHO.
I have thought about JB but have not yet. I do not mind "tweeking" things but I do not really have the time now to "tweek". I am hoping that the next major firmware update (3.0 or whatever) will take care of some of the thigs I would like to see. If it does not add some features I may look at JB then ,but for now I am very happy with what I have now.

Hell yes I'm JB and not looking back. It's not only about the customization, but the extra apps, ex. StatusNotifier, SBSettings, LiveClock and Weather Icon (instead of those static clock and weather icons from Apple), and most importantly: full Arabic support (read/write) that Apple never got themselves to do yet they released the iPhone in few Arabic speaking countries.

I just jailbroke a few days ago. I'd been holding back on it because I afraid there wasn't a restore option, but there is! Mostly did it for Qik, copy/paste, and really wanted to get the chance to use xGPS when it gets turn-by turn. Getting to use Winterboard to change looks and SB Settings to toggle antennas is just icing on the cake.

Jailbreak = Liberate
Jailbreaking was scary the first time, but really wasn't that hard thanks to QuickPwn. Now I can get anything I want, including Qik, which is this totally cool video streaming app... Plus, if something goes wrong, as others have said, you can always restore to factory settings. We've taken a formerly jailbroken phone with a bum speaker, restored it and gotten it replaced at the Apple Store under warranty, no problem.

Definitely Jailbroken. The very idea that my phone has to look and act like everyone else's phone bothers me to no end. I'll stop jailbreaking when either Apple decides to give the people who are spending hundreds of dollars just for the phone more authority over their purchase or when the opportunity to jailbreak is no longer available.

I jail broke my first iPhone but I don't see much of a value now. The phone does enough as it is. Also I get tired of wondering if some odd behavior is related to the hacking.
Every time my my old iPhone would act funny I blamed it on the jailbreak. So this time around with my 16GB I decided not to.

My iphone is neither jailbroken nor unlocked. I just don't think it's worth the risk but obviously YMMV. (I want copy/paste and turn by turn GPS but I don't want it THAT bad...I can wait)
Besides, I'm not tech-smart enough to be messing around with my gadgets.
