    is there anything I can do to fix this so I don't have to do either?

    its is a jailbroken iphone on 5.0.1 if that helps

    Don't plug your phone into itunes. Problem solved.

    A jailbroken device far out weighs the very limited issues one may have with a jailbroken device IMHO.

    I ageee with u for the most part. But for those that JB without any advanced knowledge of how to handle issues that may arise, it becomes very frustrating. Not saying that the OP doesn't know what he's doing, but he's obviously frustrated by not being able to fix the issue. I know my stuff and I still don't JB. I'm fine with what stock iOS has to offer. But that's just me. And I also understand there are a ton of people who JB and never have a problem. To each his own.

    I agree in the extant that if I had an iPad/Pod I'd JB in a second. For my main communications device including my only phone line I'm simply not willing to have random things go wrong like that.

    This. I've had bad experience with issues related to jailbreaking, an my main phone is not a device I want to have issues with. It just doesn't seem it worth it for me to risk not being able to use it as intended simply because I wanted to customize something that doesn't matter that much.

    :rolleyes:

    all these reply... this is why I "re asked" this question in the hacks section.

    the issue I had, had nothing to do with jailbreaking from what I found out, my itunesDBS file was corrupted.

    but thanks for all the helpful replys in this thread ;)
