I've been debating on Jb my iPhone 3Gs so I've been reading around and noticing a hell of a lot of problems with people jailbreaking their phone. I don't even think its worth it now. There's also a lot of reasons to jb but I really don't wanna f up my phone. What do u guys think???

usually the people who have the "problems" more than likely should have never started to begin with.
if you have any computer smarts at all, then you're safe.
but I've got to say with a defeatist attitude it will get you nowhere.
keep in mind you cannot F up your phone.
worst case you'll just go back to the boring vanilla iPhone you have right now.
my suggestion would be search and find your answers within this forum.
there are a lot of good/helpful people here. i have learned a lot from here and google.

Well I jailbroke my 3GS for the first time a few days ago and I loved it until my battery drained faster than it ever had before (same usage and I only installed a theme, backgrounder and proswitcher). It wouldn't work with Microsoft SYNC either after I jailbroke. I also didn't like the idea of having to keep my laptop handy wherever I go in case of unintentional power down since the 3GS only does a tethered jailbreak. It would suck to be away somewhere and not be able to use my phone if it got shut off for some reason. So I chose to restore it using a backup through iTunes. I'm hoping that 4.0 will come out soon and that it will offer some of the benefits of what jailbreaking does now.

I had my iPhone for 6 months before I did the jailbreak with blackra1n. I did it mostly for multitasking with backgrounder and proswitcher but am also tethering with MyWi. I'm probably going to avoid "cosmetic" stuff like themes since they are most likely to cause performance and battery issues. So far, I'm very happy with what I've done and haven't noticed any ill effects.
My advice. Make sure you do a backup on iTunes, and then go for it.
