    I have successfully jailbroken my 3GS to iOS 4.0 and have no complaints. I also have the Applcare Protection Plan until my contract runs out next year. My question:

    I know the whole speal as far as jailbreaking and voiding the warranty. However, should I have any issues with the phone, if I were to restore to factory settings, would that essentially bring me back to the "in-warranty" status if I have to take the store to the apple store?

    Thanks. - J

    A restore through Apple servers will put your iPhone back to factory firmware. You should be able to take it the Apple store for any warranty work. The only caveat is that if your iPhone takes a dump and cannot be restored (failure of some internal component), then you're potentially out of luck. If the iPhone cannot be started at all, or something like that, I'd still take it back and take my chances. If you can't start it, chances they can't either. But for anything covered where you can do a restore, you'll be fine.
