AT&T wants me to go to 4.2
I am jailbroken on 4.1 and have been since that jailbreak was available. Out of nowhere, I got a text message from AT&T as follows:
"AT&T Free Msg: An important software update is available for your iPhone. To update to iOS 4.2, connect to iTunes and follow the instructions."
Thank you but NO thank you.

I don't think it's about losing jailbreak, in fact I don't think that AT&T even cares about that. If you pay their monthly fee I think that's all they care about.
I have a feeling this is more about AT&T keeping customers "up to date". If my fiancee didn't have me, she'd NEVER update her phone. She never connects it to iTunes, never does a backup, I do it for her. She didn't even know you could do it. I'm sure there are PLENTY of other people out there like that.

I don't think it's about jailbreaking.
It's about support. If someone brings their phone into a store, it's so much easier to fix if the software is up to date. The same reason Apple upgrades phones brought into the Genius Bar for help.

It has nothing to do with anything other than AT&T letting you know there is an update out for your iPhone. I've gotten them a number of times when an iOS update comes out. It's an easy way to get the word out, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple played a small roll getting them to do it.
