    My only concern was warranty.
    But I think someone said you could un-jailbreak it. (or whatever it's called)
    Yeah, you can. There is no way a Apple "Genius" would ever be able to tell if the phone was jailbroken. Now unlocking is a different story.

    Just checking in... I was hoping somebody could give me a very concise Pros / Cons to Jailbreaking... and also curious to know if there are any stats on the % of iphone 3gs that have been jailbroken.

    do like 5% or 50% or 80% of iphone 3g owners go through the jailbreak process.
    Jailbreaking... Maybe 10% if that. No real number that I've read, but that would be the most. In fact, I would think maybe less than 5%.

    but the problematic part is you have to wait till a jailbreak solution is available before you choose to update your firmware..

    Yeah... I guessed that... I can definitely see that being a factor... when does you contract end?

    I was able to do this for some time now. I've had the option to order 3Gs since September I believe. I think that option was only afforded to those that had discounts being applied to their accounts.

    Another thing that verifies the iphone is more play and less biz is the top picks for apps.
    They tend to be games, media, bells and whistles.

    Yeah, I have had this option for a while now too. I get a state employee discount through at&t and have the option of ordering the iphone.

    Or it could just mean that certain apps are not needed...

    Look at the some of the top apps for BB:

    VibandRing... something that iPhone already does.
    BBAlarms Pro... another thing the iPhone does well. Multiple alarms!
    HTML Viewer... once again, done perfectly on the iPhone.

    And this could be because the iPhone has good games to play on while the BB has brickbreaker

    I think it depends on the person. I use my iPhone to run my small company all day long. I do have games on there but rarely get to play any. About the only time is when I am on a plane and can not use my phone. I know several other of my friends do the same with theit iPhones. One is even second in line behind the Direct of NASA. He uses his iPhone exclusively and no BB.

    So I really believe it depends upon the person. BB are good devices that are readily accepted by most big companies because of their security.

    The past 6 months I have started seeing iPhones in many business meetings. They are making inroads probably because of demand and because the IT staff are getting into them.

    Whats the iphone experience like only on EDGE? There's no 3G in my area but I still see quite a bit of iphones. With it being such a multimedia/web connected phone I'd think 3G is almost a requirement.

    I was just on edge for (5) Months and was satisfied with it. I came from a Sprint BlackBerry 8130 so I was used to 3G, but the iPhone's Safari is so far ahead of the BB browser or Opera Mini, the little extra time was ok. I am pretty luck though, as we just got 3G in my area last month.

    While Safari works pretty well over edge, YouTube is pretty useless. A great alternative to YouTube is VuClip, it does a lower resolution stream that actually downloads pretty fast on edge. It will also take some time if you are downloading large files in emails.

    The whole overall experience is far better, even on edge, then any other phone I have ever used. I was never upset about the temporary loss of 3G. The multimedia sync'd with iTunes as downloaded movies, music, or apps and games are stored on the phone so a data connection is not relevant.
