How many Apple and AT&T employees do you think Jailbreak their iPhones?
12.3 % and 11.7% respectively.
I think quite a few out of the bunch might, a guy I knew who worked for a major ISP used to get up to all sorts of mischief & would do things his employers would fire him for.
So I don't think jailbreaking is assigned to a specific group of people
How many employees does Apple have? Subtract one from that number. Divide and you'll get the absolutely confirmed percentage of Apple employees with jailbroken iPhones.
I'm referencing Woz. His is unlocked and he still receives a paycheck from Apple, so...
I think alot of them do, once they realize the true potential of the iPhone, which most of them know already (at least at the Apple store).
when i went to the AT&T store, the girl behind the counter had her's jailbroken,
I thought that was pretty interesting.
I went to an o2 shop and a sales assistant tried using the fact that you can Jailbreak it as a selling feature.
I mean great yes you can and all, but should you really be telling customers to do something like that when if they do and bring it back they'll get turned away?

I would think alot but then apple is really strict with their employees. I use to to work there and certain things were just not done because of the fear of being fired. Of course this depends on the manager but I think they would have something against their own employees having jb phones when they take such great measures to stop the jailbreak community. That being said mine was jailbroke and I was sure to not let anyone see.
I would jailbreak, but net let it be obvious.
Stock icons, no wallpaper background, no themes, etc...
Keep Cydia on the back page.
That is what I would do too. The Apple employees have to know how much better a jailbroken phone is. I just wondered if they are forbidden to jailbreak their phones.
That is likeasking if workers at McDonalds eat fries.
sure there will be some exceptions.
I can see the memo at apple:
Discussion of the procedure known as jailbreaking will result in immediate termination.
By the way, Jailbreak for firmware 2.2 has been released and a link to the mirrors has been set up under your bookmarks. We tried but the hackers outsmarted us again.
As long as the employees paid for their phones, I really don't see why Apple would care. Besides, jail-breaking is good advertising. Shows just how versatile the iPhone really is.
I'm not sure.
I'll check the next time I go to the Apple Store.
I may just be really blunt and ask a couple of the employees if theirs' is jailbroken.
The problem is when a customer see's the jailbreak, buys a device, tries it themself and breaks the phone. If I was a non technical person I would be REALLY annoyed if I broke my phone after trying something a salesguy showed me, then I come in and its not supported.
As an AT&T employee (Linux Sys Admin, not cell phone store salesman), I can say that I've had my iphone jailbroken since the day it was possible. I love theming. And everyone I work with I have so far successfully convinced to jailbreak. Mostly due to themes. But also backgrounder and a few other apps.
Do you use Swirly MMS?
I don't see what is interesting. They are JB not unlocked. This is in no violation of AT&T's policy.
The AT&T store near me has 6 employees with iPhones (3G and 1st Gen). Out of those 6 employees, all 6 have them jailbroken. In fact, it was at the AT&T store that I found out about a Simpsons theme for the iPhone with Homer's glamourous 'doh!' as a tone.
nope. I never got it working.
i'm surprised no one has asked the obvious...
do you think STEVE JOBS has a jb iphone?? hmmmm???
ive jailbroken mine a few times, and once i showed everyone at my store (every employee has one), about half of them did it too.
i def hate when a cust sees something "not normal" and asks how i did it and what they can do to get it... im like ummm google it, cant tell u anything!
Probably not that many.
nah he will be running 3.0
