Hey guys! Welcome to the DARK SIDE! LOL
It just amazes me that these phones sell as well as they do! I know of 2 people locally that got an iPhone due to AT&T adding 3G in our area recently. Plus I also know of a couple of more that will have one under the Christmas Tree.
My real one and only complaint is no multi-tasking beyond Apple's on software.
It has a great user interface. It also has tons of apps (99% of which are utterly useless).
Be prepared for lots of dropped calls. If you are on a fringe 3G area, you may want to set it to stay in 2G to help cut down on dropped calls.
My wife loves hers. It's very intuitive, and there are lots of user groups out there (and here) that will be able to help you get up and running.
I'm sure most, if not all, people who jailbreak their iPhone also buy apps from the app store.
With as many apps as there are in the app store, that do everything there is to do, there aren't many more reasons TO jailbreak. If you want to possibly void your warranty and subject your phone to more viruses, though, then by all means. Hope you like Rickrolls.
i see where you are going with that. so i will say speaking for myself only, every paid app that i have downloaded and installed for free, i bought eventually with the exception of the gps nav apps. its the ultimate try before you buy. (and the reason i buy is because the version i would currently be using would crash for no reason).
