    Getting a new iPhone 4S shipped to me this morning. Any opinion on whether I should jailbreak it out of the box with the iOS 5.0 or should I just upgrade to 5.1 without jailbreak. I know the iOS 5.0 added many features I used to jailbreak for.. but obviously not everything . Let me know your opinion.

    That is your call, my friend. Personally, I have no desire or need to jailbreak and my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S are working smoothly and without issues with iOS 5.1.

    I can give you my opinion but it might not necessarily be the right reasons for you. I JB my 4S because I wanted more customization beyond what iOS has to offer. That said, you could always run stock on the current iOS version and see if you are ok with it. If you aren't you can always JB, if you are, then go ahead and update to iOS 5.1. Good luck.

    Irish... can I ask what's jail broken apps you use on yours? I'm still having a hard time deciding but I think I'm leaning towards jailbreak because its probably going to take them several months again to find a new untethered for the 4S.

    I have almost 50, so I can't name them all. However, these are just a few that I have:

    SBSetting
    PdaNet
    iFile
    FullLock Camera
    AdBlocker
    Siri Assist Extensions
    Clock Hide
    BiteSMS
    Full Screen Safari
    HepticPro
    Iconoclasm
    Infinifolders
    Shrink (icons)
    Hide Battery on status Bar
    Transparent Dock
    Invisible folders
    2 - 3 different themes and icon packages
    and the list goes on.....

    I think you should jailbreak but that's, well, just my opinion. I don't see the need to upgrade to iOS 5.1 right now, and I am happy with my jailbroken 4S running iOS 5.0.1

    Like IRISH said above, there are tonnes of amazing Cydia apps available when you jailbreak your device.

    I find that most people don't think they want a jailbreak, until they actually jailbreak. I would say, jailbreak your phone and give it a try, if you dont like it you can always restore to stock.

    jailbreaking is definitely not for everyone. you have to like to tinker and explore your device. probably not a good decision for a simpleton

    I would say, jailbreak your phone and give it a try, if you dont like it you can always restore to stock.
    agreed
