    I am 100% new to Jailbreaking. I know there are a billion pages on this subject and Ive tried to read as much about it as possible but when it comes to a pros vs cons or just a general FAQ it seems like everything I read dates back to the original iPhone before the app store existed. So to everyone that has this knowledge I'm sorry for creating another tread. Anyway here are the questions I have. I have had every iPhone that has come out so far. (iPhone, iPhone 3G, And currently own the iPhone 3GS) I have never Jailbroken any of my phones because of all the rumors going around that your phone could be bricked and never be able to be restored or work again. So here are my questions.

    1. Can Jailbreaking my iPhone 3GS (when available) Brick it or is that just a myth?
    2. Is there any real risk in Jailbreaking?
    3. Can you do a restore at anytime and rid your phone of any Jailbreak?
    3. Can you still use the app store?
    4. Can I still use and sync with iTunes?
    and Finally
    5. Someone completely new to this such as myself is there anything about Jailbreaking I should know?

    Thank you in advance for your help and advice!
