    What doesn't work what way?
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    If i can't jailbreak, ill just not own another apple product ever again. Guess they will never realize that hundreds of thousands of people buy the phone just to do this and therefor would never sell them. Very few people actually use the jailbreak to use hacked software so iduno what the hell apple is thinking

    Exactly. Many people literally would not touch iPhone with a pole if they can't jailbreak it. I believe Apple would be foolish to push their case, as they would certainly lose many existing and potential customers if people are actually prosecuted for jailbreaking.

    I wouldn't - because AT&T sucks and JB is needed for UL.

    The jailbreak makes it so much better, but I would still use an iPhone if I didn't know what I was missing with a jailbreak.

    I actually just finished restoring my phone to get rid of the jailbreak a few hours ago.The jailbreak even when not using applications was causing my battery to drain EXTREMELY fast not to mention constant crashing..this is with no special theme.Just a few simple apps like iphone video recorder for example installed on the phone.Insert my now non-jailbroken phone with 2 pages of apps, i've been using the apps all night and its only dropped from 100% to 99% batt life(didnt uninstall the battery life cydia plugin so it stayed when restoring.)not to mention 0 crashed apps.If i were still jailbroken the batt life EASLY would have dropped to atleast 60%.Yes i'm prepared to get flamed by the apple and dev fanboys

    I had a iPhone 2G Jailbreaked - now I have a HTC Hero.
    I love my MacBook Pro, and I will never use a PC again - it's only troubles with Microsoft OS.
    My iPhone was always working, and sure it was jailbreaked - I'd think it worked much better than a not jailbreaked one.
    I love Apple products, but I don't like when Apple are using the same bad trick as Microsoft are using.
    Shame on you

    YAY!

    while jailbreaking adds more for you to do, it adds more opportunities for something to wrong as well. Every iPhone replaced by Apple because someone messes it up (a mess up that would not otherwise have happened if the phone was stock) while trying a mod is an uneccessary cost to-
    Apple.

    Hell, if I made electronics and had to give you new ones because you kept tampering with them, I'd get pretty fed with leaking money as well.

    Again, shouting "screw you apple, your idiots" (NB: bad spelling makes one appear a lot less intelligent) does nothing...
    Even if jailbreaking does become illegal I'm sure many here will still do it to "stick it to the man". Just don't run to the man when your phone is kaput;
    it's only consistency.
    I'll admit the scenario you lay out yes that would be wrong. Sure jailbreaking does indeed greatly increase the risk of something going wrong with the iPhone but one can always do a total restore and either try again or run stock if the screw up is during the jailbreak process or delete the app if it is a bad app combo installed via cydia or another non authorized app store.

    No offense but you seem to be almost as alarmist as the people at Apple - the difference being that your arguments do make sense and that you aren't calling me a drug dealer...

Jailbreaking DOES cause the iPhone to become more unstable, jailbreaking DOES reduce battery life, jailbreaking DOES increase the risk of viruses being introduced to the iPhone. The Dev Team is working with what is basically the barebones of the iPhone. They could easily create a program that could track everything you do and stick it in with one of the QuickPwn or Pwnage Tool releases (why they would want to do that is a whole other question).
    Really? Give up some proof because I've been jailbreaking my iPhone ever since 2.0 and iPhone 3G and so far the ONLY issue I've ever had was jailbreaking 2.2.1 (I'm running 3.0 jailbroken now) and once I got that straight I've had nothing but smooth sailing with my jailbroken iPhone.

    Based on my personal experience jailbreaking in and of itself does NOT make the iPhone unstable - a bad combo of apps can but that is an extremely rare occurance and one that is usually corrected. As for the reduced battery life - if one installs the backgrounder app which gives the iPhone true multitasking and runs several apps at once (ala Palm Pre) then yes that is true. Personally I don't use it because I'm good with the way the iPhone handles tasks normally. I tend to run the stock OS updates about a week or so prior to jailbreaking because I want a baseline to see how jailbreaking a particular OS will affect the speed and battery life of my iPhone and so far there has been no difference.

    And as for the increased risk of viruses - where is your proof? There is a documented case of the SMS vunerability present in the unmoddded, unjailbroken Apple iPhone OS but where is the documentation of a different virus or vunerability on a jailbroken iPhone?

    could apple legally make an update that permanently bricks your device if it's jail broken?

    ^Um I *think* Apple has released a firmware that disabled jailbroken devices but they found a way around it... very unsure about this though. I wasn't around during the early days.

    Wink My Money, My Phone, My Risk
    The bottom line is that the phone is mine, I have the right to do with it what I wish, and that any instability, etc., etc., is at my own risk. I should add that I've used a jailbroken iPhone (two different models) for two years now without any of the tragic consequences with which Apple is attempting to frighten the public. Apple may eat my shorts (and address all jailbreaking complaints to my attorney).

    Why does Apple even care? The more iPhones sold, the better, right? the unlocked ones have to be bought from apple at some point. They should just be glad people want their product so much. And if they hadn't made a deal with the devil (AT&T) then we woulnt have to jailbreak the phone anyway.
