    With my jb iPhone, I can customize my wallpaper and use some different app icons. I can run apps like qTweeter and SBSettings to make my life easier. I also have GV Mobile!

    Why would anyone NOT jailbreak?

    There should be an option for "more than 10"

    I just took the plunge yesterday and will never go back. LOVE IT!! Adds a whole new dimension to the iPhone. I was hesitant for a long time cause i didn't want to lose performance and battery life, but it hasn't seemed to affect the phone in a negative way at all.

    I went to 3.1.2 and was unjailbroken for about a week because I had trouble with both Blackra1n and pawnage tool. I really missed SBsettings and winterboard. Glad to have it back to jailbroken again.

    I hate it. I can't stand being able to set my phone up the way I want and to have access to programs that Apple narrow-mindedly decides shouldn't be allowed. Thank goodness they removed GV mobile from the app store and rejected Google's official app. It was so confusing having free SMS and a dialer in a different place. /sarcasm

    I downloaded GV Mobile straight outta Rock, I think.

    Had my 3GS for about 6 weeks before I jailbroke. After coming from WM (boo,hiss) I was used to customizing things. Now being JB I am disappointed that I waited soo long.

    I would give it a 10. I just wish there was more freedoms with something.

    What pat the cat said. Go to Cycia or Rock and search for GV Mobile. Install and enjoy!

    I just need to see the Dev-Team come up with a 3.1.2 JB for Windows. Too many mixed reports about Blackrain for me and I need to get to 3.1 since so many new apps require it. Waiting patiently otherwise I'd be reporting a 10 instead of 9.

    I can't have an iPhone without jailbreak. I've gotten WAY too used to customizing it to death and having Rock/Cydia apps that make everything SO much more functional.

    Oh and @bergman - I've jailbroken 5 3G phones with blackra1n and it worked perfectly... just took a few tries. :-)

    Does anyone besides me notice it slows down a ton with all of the wallpapers and apps and things installed?

    I have jailbroken my phone in the past, didn't find any real use out of it. The only think I liked was the fact that I could change my wallpaper, but that's it. I found that I spent more time tweaking and tweaking than actually using the phone for it's only real purpose, which is making phone calls.

    I do love JB , but the issues I have with apps not working 100% of the time or how some apps slow the phone down . But like others have said I could never go back .

    I agree a bit, I now mess with my phone alot more now that is JB. I personally think some of the apps are great, I really like winterboard. Since I just started using it, I imagine that Im barely scratching the surface of what it can really do.

    I am only jailbroken to tether with PDANet (the other hack seems to never work with voicemail, even when changing the settings as instructed).

    I wish I didn't have to JB, cause I don't need to have the extra stuff running in the background, but with the 3GS the phone doesn't slow down too much.

    I did play with more of the theming and other options when the 3G first came out, but I found that I like the native UI a lot, and any JB features were not worth the performance hit, but I can totally see why others might disagree.

    You're right i do disagree. there are advantages to having a 5icon dock and a 5wide spring board. you can have more apps on less pages. even if you dont need the aesthetics of a JB iPhone, some other apps other than tethering are really invaluable.

    you're right it is my opinion. hence the reason why I said I disagree. i didn't say that HE'S ABSOLUTELY WRONG. I just happen to disagree. Thats why we discuss things so that we can let our opinions be known. sorry if i offended you.
