I wont j/b my phone because so many people have reported having problems after they've joined the dark side but from what I understand if your phone does malfunction after it's been j/b it can be reversed without to much effort.

If you do encounter problems there's plenty of experts here that would be more than happy to help you get your phone back up and running all you have to do is ask :)

I'm like "Tug" - I won't JB my iPhone 3G 2.2 because of these bad reviews. But if any problems show it's face, you can then make an roll-back and restore the original firmware!

the only bad thing about jailbreaking is the phone runs a tad slower when opening up different applications. Still with that being a negative point it's a hell of a lot better than a stock iPhone. Being able to customize my iPhone the way i want and not steve jobs make it twice as good.




Theme: Blackberry impressions with 5 dock icons & Make it Mine.

That's the most cool thing about JB - the nasty themes/icons/backgrounds...maybe I go for the JB some day!

picazzo, i was not all that sure about jbing until one day my co-worker had a 3G jbroken. He showed me all the great stuff and told me quickpwn is so easy a caveman could do it. I figured that i was smarter than a caveman so i jailbroke mine and my wife's iPhone and got it right the first time. I don't ever see myself going back to the stock features.......EVER!
