    I have never done this before. Is there any reputable websites that offer a free jailbreak? I saw one website but they want $175. Also after the jailbreak can the iPhone be restored to the original IOS software from Apple? Thanks guys!

    right now you can't jailbreak the 4s, do not fall for the con websites on the internet.

    Keep an eye on the iphone hacks section.

    Never pay anything to anyone to jailbreak. The 4s cannot be jailbroken as of yet.

    Why can't it be jail broken? Isn't it just a software program that overrides the current IOS? I read that 5.0.1 can be broken for an i4 but not i4S, why not? It's the same software right? Sorry for being so ignorant, I am just trying to learn as much as possible so I don't brick my phone.

    You can't brick your phone (not with a legit jailbreak) and different hardware different jailbreak exploit.

    Ok thanks for the info. What about tethering. I know tethering is free with a jailbroken iPhone but does it still count against your data plan?

    Of course it does, you're still using 3g. Only way to not count is if you're tethering while iPhone is on wifi but then what would be the point.

    Why does your iphone need jailbroken? Did it murder someone?
