    Ive never done a jailbrake on my iphones. ...im considering it now though, just for a change of scene.

    So, if i want to un JB it, is it a simple restore to factory settings? Restore within iTunes? Then all is hunkydorey?

    Thanks

    If you have to ask if a jailbreak is worth it then no it's not for you.

    If you know what your doing when it comes to cydia tweaks then yes its very worth it... but you have to do the research yourself ;)

    ..not really. Just asking - i hear it "slows" the phone down? That true?

    What i want to know more though is un jailbraking at a later date. Is it just a factory restore using itunes to do it?

    jailbreaking isn't known to drain more battery than normal is it?

    I think I can speak for several members here, as well as myself, and say the thought of you messing around with your phone in this manner is enough to induce nightmares.

    For you to determine. Same as any other question of worth.

    It actually seems pretty simple to do, with iphone 5 around the corner..may not be such a thing to 'mess around' with my 4S ;)
