    how can they see that your iphone is jailbreak
    beside restore the custom firmware with out installer and cydia?

    if they look at the baseband they will see it a wrong modem firmware with 2.X.

    also

    if you bought the phone with out activating it through a contract will that effect the warranty thanks

    Words of wisdom: do not take a jailbroken or unlocked iPhone into the Apple Store.

    I did that, three times. Never had a problem.

    Also took my old 1st gen Touch in, jailbroken - again, no problem.

    No. Don't do any of that.

    You don't need ZiPhone to put the phone/iPod in DFU mode -- you just need to have two working hands.

    ZiPhone is a buggy POS, and its creator ripped off a hell of a lot of code from other parties without credit (or releasing the source, as required by the various licenses.) There is absolutely no reason to use it, save changing the IMEI of your phone.
