    "Hi guys I have a problem with my phone, I messed something up while (doing unsupported activity) and now my phone is #%^$ up;! what should I do?
    "restore, send it back to Apple and they'll replace it for free. Press thanks on your way out."
    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.

    This is just funny. Really Apple?!? Drug dealing, world enders are the sole proprietors of the jailbreak community. I need to get some new friends. Sorry guys I'm go mod an xbox or something to get away from all of you reprobates. By the way does anyone want to buy some hallucinogenic substance?
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

    If the Dev Team took an active stance against cracked apps Apple would probably stop this stupid cat and mouse game.

    You don't need to pirate when you jailbreak but you NEED to jailbreak to pirate so as long as that's going on all jailbreakers will seem as pirates.

    It doesn't help that most jailbreakers ARE people that pirate.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Phones with less functionality compared to a stock iPhone, fantastic idea. Let me know how that works out for you if you switch.

    Apple has ampd up their Jailbreaking attacks once again publishing a list of ways jailbreaking is a "major source of instability, disruption of services, and other issues." This follows just a few short days after Apple's claims that jailbreaking is for drug dealers and continues Apple's anti-jailbreak propaganda in their effort to make jailbreaking illegal.

    Lets examine all of Apple's claims:

    Yes this rarely happens through bad combinations of apps off of Cydia. As the jailbreak community grows older these issues occur less and less and when they are identified they are typically fixed asap by devs. That is a risk you take when installing third party software, albeit a minor one.

    What does this have to do with jailbreaking exactly? There are plenty of people with non-jailbroken iPhones experiencing these problems. BS.

    This concerning hacktivated unlocked iPhones on networks that aren't "approved" by Apple. Jailbroken iPhones that are on "legitimate" carriers and aren't hacktivated don't appear to have this issue at all (mine doesn't). This stems back to the dev team's push fix for the hacktivated iPhones on non-Apple carriers and I'll have to point out that that push fix is still in alpha, and it is likely that some devs are working on addressing the issue.

    The issue has nothing to do with jailbreaking and everything to do with unlocking. Since unlocking is perfectly legal in the US Apple is trying to attack jailbreaking instead. Ya know, clock and dagger, smoke and mirrors, BS.

    Using computers or nearly anything electronic increases your odds of allowing hackers to steal personal information. That is like saying using a windows computer to download porn could possible introduce malware and viruses. Solution? Make Windows illegal. Once again ridiculous. Maybe Apple should worry about things like an SMS vulnerability that affects all iPhones instead of just jailbroken ones.

    Running applications shortens battery life. Any application jailbroken or not. On any operating system. Anywhere. That's why Apple battery life specs for all of its devices including computers are higher than real life.

    I for one enjoy being able to do other things on my iPhone while listening to Pandora. The shortened battery life is an trivial consequence that I'm aware of and accept.

    Jailbreaking is extremely safe. There are millions of Jailbroken iPhones in the world that are operating just fine with out any permanent damage. I'd argue that 99.9% of the .01% of cases where an iPhone is "permanently damaged" because of Jailbreaking is the result of a user not understanding how to restore properly.

    This looks like more of a warning that Apple intends to purposely create an update designed to break Jailbroken devices than current fact.

    via apple thx JazJon for the tip
    I thought that to unlock you to jailbreak first with out the jailbreak you can unlock.

    If we paid for Apple's product I believe that we should be able to do anything with it... And if Apple's happy with their product makng money, why can't we be happy with the product that we bought... Lame...

    This is just another shining example of why I HATE Apple!!
    They make asses of themselves more than any mega-corp that I know of! Nobody who is not jailbroken is paying any attention to this nonsense, and the people that DO jailbreak, know that their claims are completely false and just plain stupid!!

    So what if jailbreaking makes my phone a tad unstable sometimes... its MY choice to deal with that as a consequence, I dont know of any jailbreak apps that open a hacker exploit on my phone!
    I paid a fortune for this phone, its MINE, and i'll do whatever the hell I want with it!! Why would AT&T care... I pay my bill every month! Why should Apple care... they got their money from me buying the phone!! When will apple present an argument about HOW jailbreaking affects THEIR business??? All they talk about is how THEY think jailbreaking affects the phone, WE KNOW, and we CHOOSE to do it, and that's our right!!

    This is as foolish as the big-3 trying to outlaw modifying your car with aftermarket parts! Can you image Ford trying to take down and outlaw the multi-billion dollar aftermarket auto parts industry?? If they tried, they would become the laughing stock of the fortune50 world!!
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

    Sh1T! I think of this everytime I update.

    All of Apple's claim's are true in every sense. This whole "Fact: Disproved" thing you have going on seems like it's coming from an inexperienced mind. 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).

    Wow Apple just will not give up. What surprises me is how they make a those B.S. claims about how jailbreaking ruins the iPhone. It's mostly TOTAL B.S.

    OS 3.0 on it's own has significantly reduced my battery life and made my reception worse. just sayin'

    and when has an iphone gotten a virus? the only real one i've heard of is the one that exploits the 3.0 firmware thru text. and that's apples screw up. so going with your logic upgrading to apples 3.0 firmware DOES increase your chance of getting a virus. oh noes.
