It is cool for a few hours, but then gets old. The bugs are not that bad, but phone has to be restarted about once a day. I would recommend waiting till at least another version of the beta comes out.

I would wait. It's not bad for a beta, but it is buggy, and unless you feel like dealing with the hassle of updating as new every time a new beta comes out, I wouldn't bother.

If you do update, be reminded that it's a beta version and that you need to have your iPhone's UDID number registered with the Apple Developers Program first or your iPhone will become an expensive brick.

you just got your phone so everything is still exciting for you, later on down the road when you find yourself craving new functions then update to the beta, by then a more updated less buggy version will be out

enjoy your new phone with no bugs first

I could be wrong, but I think you can only get that by jailbreaking your iPhone, which is frown upon by Apple, and it can void your warranty.

jail-breaking does not void your warranty unlocking does

Right. Nothing they do tells them it's jailbroken. I've gotten it replaced when there was still traces of jailbreaking on it and they didn't seem to care.
