Hello there,
Finally I decided to go the service center to talk about battery and the annoying voice control bug. They swapped with a new phone next day! Wow I am happy! But néed to watch it for the battery life how it goes. It's on 4.3.3. My question is would I be able to jailbreak without upgrading to the latest 4.3.5?

Yes, just go to jailbreakme in safari and then download. 4.3.3 jailbreak is easy!

I want to watch for the battery life first without jb for two days. Then how about trying with redsn0w? No need to update to 4.3.5, right?

Moved to iPhone Jailbreak.

Yeah, you can use redsn0w instead. You don't have to update to 4.3.5. Jailbreakme.com is the easiest solution, but redsn0w isn't difficult and there are fewer problems associated with it.

Thanks for the reply Europa.
Now I am sad again. My new iPhone acted strange! It said the accessory doesn't support charging(USB cable). I tried in another computers! Same. So thinking it could be a software issue, I had no choice to restore to 4.3.5. There I lost the possibility of jb. It was stuck at first, then resorted to 4.3.5 and was charging from USB after restore. Today, when the battery was less, i tried to connect to USB, there the message appeared again! This accessory doesn't support charging! (its charging from the adaptor)strange!What will I do now? Go to store again?

Are you using an official Apple cable and plug? You may have a hardware issue.

Yes, it's original came with the first phone. And I tested the cable with another iPhone too. Cable is working. I noticed one thing more. Is it required to activate with iTunes when we use another sim with iPhone? I didn't have this issue before with my first iPhone.
(Note: we have two operators and the iPhone available here is factory unlocked.)
Thanks again.

The new phone will have to be activated prior to use and after restores, but simply putting a new AT&T SIM card in it will not require activation. If you have your SIM card replaced, you have to call AT&T and give them the number that is printed on the new SIM card before it will work. If you have an AT&T-locked iPhone that is activated and working, you can put a different SIM card for an active AT&T account in the iPhone and it will just work.

Well, I am in UAE and the iPhone supplied here is factory unlocked. When I got the first iPhone I just activated with the sim(operator-du) came with the package and later I was able to use the second operator(ETISALAT) just by simply inserting without any activation. And further when moved to India I was able to use the sim there again without any activation. But this new phone required activation for the second sim!
Thanks.

I went the store again. They gave me another new phone. Now I am happy again. The first thing I did was to jailbreak through jailbreakme.com. It is surprisingly easy and did jailbreak in less than one minute! No need for any Ipsw or redsn0w. As easy as installing a new app!

It will be a while before you see another jailbreakme.com. ;)

Is it safe as the normal jailbreak? I Heard there are security issues?
Yes, it's safe. There are no increased security risks with that particular jailbreak. You'll want to change the default password if you install OpenSSH regardless of what jailbreak tool you use. If you don't use SSH, you don't need to worry about it.

The jailbreak itself utilizes a vulnerability in iOS. After Apple was made aware of the exploit, they patched it and released a firmware update. This breaks the jailbreak and is the reason jailbreakme.com doesn't work on 4.3.4 and 4.3.5. The vulnerability in iOS is a security risk, but you are no more at risk than someone who is on 4.3.3 or lower and non-jailbroken. The risks of experiencing a problem that is associated with it are extremely low. You can have the best of both worlds by using the jailbreakme.com jailbreak, staying on 4.3.3 and applying the patch for the exploit in Cydia.

Just to clarify, you don't have to install SSH. I haven't used it for more than a year because there are alternatives means of root access, such as iFile (iPhone app), iPhoneBrowser (PC) and DiskAid (Mac).

That being said, if you prefer to use OpenSSH with WinSCP (PC) or Cyberduck (Mac), here are directions for changing the default password:
