I too have an iPhone 4S, and have been thinking about jailbreaking for a long time... like since I got my phone in Feb. I have had a couple jailbroken iPhone 3GS's, but the reason I'm hesistant about my 4S is because I bought it full price, with no contract... So, if something went wrong, I would pretty much be "up the creek without a paddle." My friend has a phone just like mine, and she jailbroke hers herself, and when she was at my house last night, I saw her dialing pad was zebra print! I thought that was so awesome, and I know there are many other things that make it worth it. I 'm just not sure, because originally, I wanted to do it because I am prepaid, and until recently, when 4S was jailbroken, you could use the unlimited data that comes with the $50 unlimited everything prepaid plan - but my friend said now, you must buy a data package... so I just want to know some specific details as to why I should do the jailbreak. I don't want it totally unlocked, just jailbroken, in case I don't like it. Can someone tell me some of the detailed reasons why it's better to jailbreak, besides not being under the "Apple Thumb?" Any help would be greatly appreciated!

And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

Personally, I think.. Hell yeah!!
I only did my recently, on 5.1.1, and I can say its definitely worth the beef.
My previous phone was a 3GS and I was satisfied with it being jailbroken, but unfortunately the phone seemed to slow to cope with the tweaks up to offer.
I decided to give it a go on my 4S and woah, am I impressed.
The speed of the phone makes it a whole new experience!
I had a similar problem with the music player though, but my music only seemed to lag during play near the start. I fixed this issue, but unfortunately I don't remember what I had removed in order to do so. It possibly could have been winterboard as I didn't really have a use for it.

When I had my 2nd gen iPod Touch jailbroken on 2.2.1 it seemed so smooth and fluid, same thing when I did my 3GS, but now that I have my 4S and I'm able to compare the jailbreaks side by side I don't even understand how I could use the 3GS. Oh hardware how I love you
