Heard mixed reviews of it. Some people it seems to be working fine and others are having problems. I would wait but it's good news things are moving along, it's been quite a wait.

The sole purpose of unlocking it is to use it on another GSM network. Jailbreaking is what allows you to change the UI theme and add other 3rd party apps not in the app store.

I agree, especially when if done incorectly you can lock your phone up for good. Noone wants an iPhone brick.
