AT&T lost exclusivity of the iPhone 4 and it's only a matter of time before all the national carriers have it (I'd venture a year, at most). So in the long term, an unlock is almost irrelevant to US users at this point.
As far as jailbreaking goes, Steve Jobs has flat out said if you want porno to get an Android phone and I seriously doubt his opinion towards jailbreaking would be any different. Still, it's never a good idea to tell some of your most vocal supporters to switch to the competition. They might actually like the competing product better, and make an incredibly popular YouTube video about it.
I also doubt Android is quite as doomed by the Verizon iPhone as some people are predicting - the iPhone still lacks flash, doesn't offer a model with a hardware keyboard, has no speech to text, no widgets/live wallpapers, no turn by turn navigation, no removable memory, no removable battery and only comes in one screen size. It's not exactly surprising that someone would still choose an Android phone over the iPhone 4.

OK plain and simple if I purchase a PC I can run any OS on it that I choose, Doesnt matter if it is a IBM, Dell, HP whatever... Isnt a Smart Phone the same as a small mobile computer??? What is next Dell saying if I run anything other than Windows on my PC they are going to sue me? Just silly Greed from apple this will be the last iPhone I purchase. Steve Jobs did a god job of bringing Apple out of the muck just to start the decline all over again. Do they realize they dont have the only phone with the same capabilities of the iPhone, and people have a friggen choice? Idiots!!!!!

Is this mean that since apple is releasing beta constantly that a jailbreak could never be released.
People that broth a lot of software from cydia like are not getting any usage of that software for the last 3 or 4 months patience may be a virtue but in this case it is outrageous. And this to avoid some more work from the developers..... Come on!!!!!!!!!!

Unless the release of untethered 4.2.1 JB tool might affect future JBs, then they should at least release what they have. Because it now sounds like we will be waiting until late Feb/early March before anything is released.

There is no last.. After apple released the 4.2.5 or 4.3 it will take time for the dev team.. Then apple will release again another "fix" firmware.
Apple seems winning on strategy vs dev team

Google on the other hand, could care less if I want SMS Popup or the ability to download Youtube videos. Actually, they encourage it, provide an open market to provide it, and it happens to be free.

Anyone know if this can be unlocked so I can use my UK sim card when i am abroad?

My guess is within 30 days of it's release there will be an unlock, a stable one-click-root, and several ROMs.
I know I can't wait til it comes out. I'm probably gonna get one and sell my Captivate.

Although, I do love my Mac, as far as portable Apple products go, they've gone too far with control, and there are vastly better products on the market.iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

^I wouldn't go so far as to say "vastly superior products" but we get the point! There are exciting products being introduced every day, most by co's other than Apple. The iPhone glamor days are almost over and many competitors have stepped up.

And even if they didn't, a few Android app installs in and you have to reformat because things get messed up so quickly.
There's a reason iDevices continue to kick Android *****.
Android really need to up their game if they're ever to mount a serious challenge to Crapple.

I mean, untethered jailbreak is kinda out for 4.2.1
01-18-2011, 01:01 AM #77
I click a button called "enter recovery mode" or "kick out of recovery mode"
All i need is an apple cable and windows vista. The unlocks of old required brains, guts, and sweat, and DID void any guarantee or warantee you might have had. Too bad we can't go back...
JB will be around a while, and so will i.

Apple is not the only smartphone on the planet, we should switch to Android and see Apple will stump. I will be the first one.
