    I used to be on Team Jailbreak. However, the Mobile Substrate which is installed when you Jailbreak makes your phone really slow. And, sometimes you get runaway processes which kill your battery really fast. I found myself constantly troubleshooting problems with my phone and needing to restore when it was Jailbroken.

    Now I am on Team Pure and have only had to restore my iPad once (accelerated battery drain), and have never had to restore my iPhone 4. It just feels so much better to be able to use my iPhone without constantly needing to tinker with it.

    The things I miss most about Jailbreaking are SBSettings and BiteSMS. However, since iOS 4.2, my battery life has been so good that I don't even need SBSettings to ever turn off Wifi, Bluetooth, Location Services, etc.

    very good point, in fact that is what i ran into last night. so there i was sitting at my laptop ready to restore/re-jb and that's when i decided to update to 4.3 and actually give it a go (again) for real..

    i am going to wait for the untethered 4.3 jailbreak to be available (bug-free) along with my favorite JB apps/tweaks to be updated (whenever that may be) and even then i'll have to see where i am at with all of this Team Pure stuff

    it's going to be weird but i figured it might be a nice break

    IT JUST WORKS!
    That statement says it all. I've been an iPhone owner from the beginning with the 2G, 3GS, and now iP4. They've all just worked and the next one was always better then the last one. But the one thing that made it complete was Cut & Paste, along with the App Store. After adding that feature set IMO the phone was complete, staple, fast and just worked right out the box. I'm with TEAM PURE all the way with my iPhone. Now the iPad is another story. It keeps crying out to me to be Jailbroken. Really starting to creep me out (LOL ).

    yes, it is so.. haha! i do miss LockInfo, biteSMS and FullScreen Safari--BAD!

    my battery life has been surprisingly decent considering all the drama that i have been reading here and everywhere else. so if it gets better than this it's definitely a Win situation for me

    swipe to unlock issue simply does not happen that often for me..

    i guess in a weird way it has been nice not having to micro-manage. i will be anxious to see if i can maintain this decent battery performance (or better) with the "new jailbreak" & setup..

    LOL have fun you know I'm in the same boat but a whole whack of bugs have annoyed the crap out of me so I"m not sure how much longer I can take this. So a new question for all the people who have posted so far, do you experience any of the bugs? if you do how frustrating is it? how does it play into your "It just works"? I wish Apple would just continue to sign the previous firmware every time they release a new one. I would downgrade to 4.2 in a heartbeat if I could right now.

    I'm good for now. I never really had a problem with the firmware outside of the 2G phone when the 3G first came out. Can't remember the version number but wasn't as snappy. But to Apple's credit they came out with a patch quickly.

    Coming from a Blackberry fan for years i had to jb my iphone. i do love the iphone but you are so limited on what you can do unlike my blackberries. I would not be satisfied with the iphone if i couldn't jb it. I absolutly love it now. If it wasnt for Jailbreaking i would have gone back to RIM.

    YESSSSS!! Surfstoked you rock! I have to say I'm glad to see alot of people aren't simple staying pure because Apple doesn't allow it. I think as a JBer I had that assumption that it was the main motivation. It was really cool to read the reasons though.

    Reasons I don't jailbreak.
    1. Don't really see anything interesting enough to warrant the effort
    2. Don't want to have to wait to install new iOS updates
    3. Not looking to pirate apps or get free tethering
    4. Don't have the urge to tweak/tinker with things

    umm, how would you know until you try it?

    2. Don't want to have to wait to install new iOS updates
    have you tried 4.3? looks like waiting was the better option

    3. Not looking to pirate apps or get free tethering
    simple.. then don't

    4. Don't have the urge to tweak/tinker with things

    I dont jailbreak because, as it has been stated so many times, "it just works" I do not want to worry about the what-if's

    and even if Stevo came knocking at my door to tell me it was ok, I still would not. the iPhone does everything I need it to do, consistently, smoothly and with great battery life
