    I wasnt going to jailbreak my phone because I dont want to void the warranty if it ever froze. But, after 1 week the water sensor turned pink when I spilled a beer on my pants. I want to make sure that if I unlock my phone, it wont quit working sooner due to the unlock. I unlocked my 1st gen and after 3 days the touch screen quit working. I dont know if it was coincidence but I never wanted to try it again. Any know problems?

    Anything that goes wrong with the phone can be fixed with DFU Mode and a restore in iTunes.

    Software degradation doesn't harm hardware. And if it starts to run like crap, dfu and restore.

    I'd be more worried by the byproduct of beer spillage.

    Sounds like the beer must have flowed thru the iPhone on the way down to your pants !! :rolleyes:

    Now, where exactly was that iPhone ??? :cool:
    Using the vibrate function in a way it was never intended to be used ?? :eek:

    Wait, I think there's an app for that in the App Store !
