So after telling myself for years that I wouldn't go apple, here I am now and got a iphone 3GS dropped in my lap to replace my ancient HTC mobile phone. Any contact I've had with itunes in the past has been horrible, so I'm wondering what reasonable choices (if any) I have to use this phone without using that crappy software. I assume I won't be able to avoid getting an apple account to access the app store, but how can I keep my itunes interaction to a minimum? Would it be worth upgrading the iOS? looks like its currently running 4.2.1? Or rather just jailbreaking it? Any other advice?
