Do I JailBreak?
Hi Guys, Will say upfront, I'm a noob when it comes to iPhones, jsut got my first one about 2 weeks ago.
Do I jailbreak or not? I want to customize my phone's ringers, alerts, and a few other things, lol.
Is there any downside to j/bing? Can I seemlessy go back to the way I have it now by doing a restore in itunes prejailbreak?
What would be the best way for me to j/b if i choose to go that route?
Read in a previous post that I would have to reinstall the j/b app everytime i reboot the device, is that true? Is there any way around that?
Any help would be appreciated.

I would definitely jailbreak using blackra1n as that seems to be the easiest way to do it. There are tons of threads here that will step you through it.
I jailbroke my iPhone 3G the first day I got it and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!
If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.
The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.
Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.
It takes less than a minute.
ALSO, being that this is a new iPhone 3G[s], that requires a tethered jailbreak, I also suggest getting a battery case.
A good one is "Case-Mate Fuel" (google it) but it's ugly as sin. It will however, act as a case AND a charger. Or you could go to BestBuy an pick up a "InCase PowerSlider" case.
That, and a car charger. That way the iPhone never goes off. If you have a laptop, that's ideal/superb.
Let me know how that goes.
