Should I jailbreak?
Now that you can get an A5 jailbreak then I was wondering wether to jailbreak or not to as my iPhone has to last me a few years and I don't want it to be crashing all the time and having loads of problems though there are loads of really cool things like jailbreak but then it does break your phone so what do you think and also I don't get what's so good about bitesms how is it better in any way

To JB or not to JB... that is the question....
If your phone is doing everything you want it to as is - Don't.
If you're comfortable "messing around under the hood"... and want more tweaks, tricks, and things like that available to you, by all means - jailbreak.
No one can make up your mind for you...

If you're worried about screwing something up, then don't do it. Yeah lots of people are good at it and have ZERO issues, but if you're not comfortable with it, I wouldn't.
The only thing I want is iTether, but not sure I would JB just to get that.

How about you try it out, and if you don't like it you can go back to stock. Most likely you'll fall in love, realize what you've been missing all this time and never turn back.
Just because someone asks a question about it doesn't mean that they shouldn't do it, that doesn't even make sense.

i must say i did jailbreak. But i am sick of screwing with phones after all my androids. So i took it back stock b/c the only real benefit for me was free apps. I figure if i cant afford it I dont need it so i took it back to stock. The phone works so well unjailbroken that i dont need to lol. there were always reasons with android to make something work better but really no need. Again this is just for me not everyone obviously

I was on the fence about jailbreaking. I had never owned an iPhone until the 4s, and I had been accustomed to Android's customization ability. I loved the 4S, but I wanted to be able to do more with my phone-I didn't care too much for the static icon look the iPhone has- I wanted more. So I jailbroke the other day, and I am happy as heck I did. As you can see, I took the best of Android (reminiscent of Beautiful Widgets) and still can keep the iPhone functionality and dependability. Haven't had a crash, haven't noticed any issues, and it works perfectly. The apps are not all free- the best ones do cost some money- but once you're set up with them, then you are ready to go! I love my phone MUCH more now. And the battery drain is no different than with stock- I just find myself using the HECK out of it more now...lol

heres my 2 cents.yesterday i successfully jailbroke my 4s and i installed all the goodies navigon(free)sbsettings,vwallpaper,ifile, etc.actually my purpose of jailbreaking is to unlock my 4s so i can use it on any sim cards but i think its not possible yet i notice a little bit slower and battery drains faster.today facebook and couple apps would not open.so i decided to restore it back to factory.i guess i will probably wait for the unlock and i will jailbreak it again....
