I have a JB iphone 4 through GP on 4.1. What are the benefits to upgrading to 4.2.1? I have alot of themes and tweaks that I don't want to re-download and re-adjust my phone. Thanks

Thank you JJMAN. I'll definitely look into that.

One really nice feature is the free MobileMe for going to 4.2.1 on an iPhone 4. :)

It lets you track your phone, send it messages, remote lock it and remote wipe it. Its $99 a year unless you have 4.2.1 which makes it free for all iPhone 4 users. NOT 3g's though unfortunately. :\

There's other fixes and such, but that one stands out and why I even upgraded. :)

Also try tiny umbrella to preserve ur BB if ur at all interested in a later unlock. Which would help its resale value
