    To unjailbreak, you want to restore as a new device. All jailbroken applications will be removed automatically.

    Yes, but that's why you need to backup your device, and it should automatically sync everything back after restoring.

    However, for contacts, make sure they are ALL in your address book.

    Restoring from a backup might have remnants of jailbreaking.

    Not if you have all your contacts and music backed up in Address Book and iTunes.

    Yes, you will lose all info on your phone. You should, however, be able to backup your contact info somehow -- depends on whether you have mac or pc, and if you use mobileme or google/yahoo/ms exchange. If you don't know how start another thread in the iphone help forum to ask. But anyway, since the reason you want to unjailbreak is to take it into Apple for service, here's what I'd do.

    1. Backup your phone. (In itunes, right click (or whatever the mac equivalent of right-click is) on the iphone icon and select "backup")
    2. Restore as new. This will remove all traces of jailbreak.
    3. Take it to Apple. Come back with fixed or replacement phone.
    4. Restore from the backup you made in Step 1. (right-click and select "restore from backup") Voila, you have all your info back on your fixed/replaced phone.

    Yes. Just make sure you put the phone into DFU Mode first, and then do the restore. :)

    Make sure you turn off the SBSettings Battery % before you do.
