It certainly is up to you, I was in the same spot as you when I purchased my iphone. After I learned that thru jailbreaking, you can do cool stuff like this on your phone, incoming calls plays individually set videos on your iphone, listen to pandora music at the same time surfing the internet, wonderful nice looking themes that doesn't make your iphone look bored and dead, and lots of wonderful stuff that apple should of have included on the iphone, That was when I knew what I should of have done in the first place.

Another vote here for jailbreaking. I kept my 3GS stock for a few weeks, hmm'ing & haw'ing over the JB. After doing it I can't go back to total stock. SBSettings, themes via Winterboard, Backgrounder, Categories, the list goes on. Redsn0w was a snap.
Once 3.0.1 comes out I'll wait to update until a JB comes out.
Be not afraid.

@martcal: also, bring up the app you have running in the background, then depress the Home button. You should get a message "backgrounder disabled" (or something to that effect).
Plus, I gotta correct my post on p.1: I meant to say that when 3.1 comes out I'll wait for the JB before updating. Had a harsh time trying to type - and think - yesterday. Sheesh...

Sure, there are risks involved in jailbreaking or unlocking you iPhone, but you're on the right path by seeking advice in communities such as TiPB.
You may be "on your own" as far as "official" support from Apple goes if you do attempt it, but the reality is that if you carefully research the different unlocking and/or jailbreaking methods, you should be ok. Always prepare for the worst and work for the best.
