If there was no JB, I would't own an iPhone because they would suck.

Meh. I had a JB 3GS for over a year, then went to a factory 4 then 4S. The latter two were NOT jailbroken for almost a duration of 10 months and I didn't find the phone any less appealing. The only apps I have ever purchased are Wikipedia offline and MBox Mail for Hotmail. Total of $15 bucks over almost 3 years? Worth it.

Don't do it! Literally no more than 24 hours after I jail broke my iPhone it broke and needed to be replaced! I blame it on the jailbreak to this day

If jailbreak has gone wrong you can always restore your iphone to factory settings with itunes.

Well, technically speaking I dropped it in the parking lot, destroying the screen. I figured I could get the twenty dollar screen replacement kit, but then I dropped it in a puddle after that.

I still blame the jailbreak, though

Customization, free apps, better use of resources, handy tweaks. I'm not exaggerating when I say I wouldn't own an iPhone if I couldn't jailbreak it.

Work will finally be getting me an iPhone --been on a BB for years.

Would you think that my IT peeps would get pissed if I JB my phone?

For the guys that have less well-known apps (not instagram, facebook etc) can you include a short sentence describing the app and what it does?


My fav to this day is the SAS Survival Guide:





Soooo much useful info, I read something every time I am on the sh1tter. I have most of it memorized now. Be warned, it does take up 2 gigs.

they might not want to help you if it breaks so if it does break restore it first before asking them for help. that's what apple and all the carriers make you do.
