2.1 is quite laggy. Jailbreaking it makes it even laggier.

What you need to do is update the phone to 2.2 using iTunes. When asked, select to set up the phone as a new device (not from a backup). You will lose all your photos, SMS, and notes, so backup whatever you can and sync your contacts/calendar/bookmarks to external programs using the info tab on the devices page in iTunes.

Once you're stock 2.2, then if you want you can jailbreak again. Lots of information about how to do that in this forum.
