    Can anyone give me a rundown of Jailbreaking such as pro's and con's and things to watch out for?

    I'm new to the whole process.

    Just bought a 32gb iPhone 4 about a month ago.

    I appreciate any and all input.

    Pro: you are free to do whatever you want with your phone.

    Con's: well it void Apple care if they know you are JB (there are ways to prevent that), also you can mess something up if you go crazy installing everything around.

    Make sure to read around, before installing anything, read the developers website, and try to understand what and how it does what it do.

    I jailbroke this week and I've notice a hit to my battery life. Is this a known issue and is there any way to fix it without restoring my phone?

    You got to figure out what is causing your battery to drain, it is not the Jailbreak that does it, but something you installed. I am JB and my battery is as good as it have always been. this is a perfect example of what I reply to the OP, you need to watch what you install and don't go crazy or stuff like that will happen, read, review, ask, understand before installing.
