    Default Do you regret upgrading to 3.1?
    It seems that many are experiencing problems after upgrading to 3.1. Some have been advised by Apple to downgrade back to OS3.0 in order to solve their problems.

    Have you upgraded? If so, was it on a jailbroken phone? I wonder if JB makes a difference to the degree of problems.

    Or are you like me, who are still reading and waiting before taking the plunge?

    I'm on a jailbroken iPhone 2G and have no problems except that I cannot use the MMS patch to get that working... It'd be nice if there was a tab for that :P

    All of my mail get sent to my own server running exchange 2007, so.... push is working very well.

    Some see things as they are and ask why, I see things that have not been and ask why not?

    I'm on 3.1 with my 3g. The only thing I dont like about 3.1 is how it disabled my tethering. Otherwise, i see no difference in 3.1 from 3.0.1.

    I haven't upgraded it as I see no benefit to doing so. I already have MMS working on 3.01, and the other little features don't concern me much.

    I'm on jailbroken 3.1 on my 3g and it sucks balls!! There really is no difference in 3.0 then 3.1... well besides having videos show up in your photos.app. But now my phone has the whole problem with freezing and non-responsive at *random* times. Apparently its an issue with JB 3.1 . Yesterday alone my phone froze at least 5 times until reboot. If this continues I might just end up downgrading

    No way ever since I upgraded my battery has been amazing

    Im on 3.0.1 JB and am waiting until 3.1 JB comes for the 3G S. But with all the battery problems I've been hearing, might just wait. Don't know if I'll use MMS enough to constitute losing the battery life

    Up to this point, 75% of those who upgraded regret not staying with 3.0. Only 25% says they don't regret it. Let's hope we have a bigger sample size by having more of you voting.

    I prefer waiting it out. I'm on 3.0.1

    I just left the apple store where there were 4 different people there, who knew nothing about jailbreaking by the way, complaining about how the 3.1 update messed up their phones..

    i decided to wait it out until some of the problems and been sorted out. actually the only problem that is really making me not upgrade is the freezing thing and the screen randomly not working.

    so i wait.

    I'm generally confused why anyone in their right mind would take a perfectly jailbroken iPhone and rush to upgrade for MINOR MINOR feature upgrades. It's just beyond me why people waste their time for absolutely no feasible benefit. Why I see a bunch of 3GS users wining about the 3.1 jailbreak not out yet is ridiculous.

    So nothing to do now but wait for an unlock solution.

    Im not so happy about upgrading to 3.1. The biggest problem for me is that i cant jailbreak my phone. As far as i know. I'm waiting for there to be a way for me to jailbreak it so i can get off of the boring default iPhone style. I'm not sure if there is a way to downgrade either. If anyone can help with any of these problems id appreciate it...

    I voted "No regret - my phone is mailbroken" even though I don't know what mailbreaking is...

    My phone is faster, my WiFi now works as well as it did with 2.xx and I like being able to rearrange my icons in iTunes.
