    I have been pondering the idea of Jailbreaking my phone but I was hoping to get some more insight on the positives of doing it. I know that you get numerous wallpapers, themes, and NES games but could someone please provide some more examples of applications? Thanks

    There's also the general good feeling that YOU, not Apple, have control over the device you paid good money for. And there are always new and better things on the horizon from the Jailbreak community.

    I love mine!

    You can disable the "Apple Kill Switch."

    You can have battery life display as a percentage.

    You can tether your laptop.

    You can scrobble to Last.fm over the air. :D

    Vegan - you provide a strong argument, lol. What sources do I have to install to be able to download Appshare, installous, or mew seek? Thanks

    To dude/chick that's thinking about JBing, you really don't have anything to lose. You may experience some slowdown if you get into trying new themes out with Winterboard or with applications like Stacks but all and all jailbreaking greatly improves the functionality of that powerful device in your pocket. Also, QuickGold is an amazing application that I would recommend (allows you to search apps, contacts, safari pages, etc with one touch of the home button)

    No worries. Even if they could do that, it would require a software update, which you will have to initiate.

    Just don't run any iTunes or iPhone updates until you see someone post whether it's safe or not.
