    Well you can unlock your iPhone with a jailbreak and get tools for your camera.

    Think twice before doing it. IMO it's over rated hype.

    Background processes
    Integrate processes with the SpringBoard (SBSettings)
    Themes
    Test Applications made with the iPhone SDK on device without paying $99.
    Partial Copy/Paste


    I could go on into stuff that only a few people would care about, but that would be boring.

    The only reasons I used to jailbreak were for themes, emulators, and folders (categories)

    It would be much more useful jailbreaking an iPhone because it has better hardware

    I did not jailbreak because it voids the warranty and the warranty is important to me.

    You can do a Restore and Apple won't really be able to tell, unless you do something really crazy. Anyways, I jailbroke and use it for Background Processes, emulators, and folders.

    I also use it to wake up to music instead of my stupid alarm clock.
