    You technically lose your warranty if you're dumb enough to send it to apple.

    You also have to typically wait a little while when apple releases firware updates

    Jailbreaking really shouldnt negatively affect your iPhone though. Your simply gaining admin rights to your phone. There are however a number of apps in cydia that may not be made for your specific iPhone that may or may not give it unintended consiquences so just make sure you know what you are installing. You aren't gonna find many negatives to jailbreaking in general and in my opinion it enhances your experience
