    Apple is obviously going to do all they can to make the iPhone unjailbreakable.

    Go to these feedback forums, and tell them *why* you jailbreak. (But don't say "0h i lik free appz!"

    Tell them how you like to use SBSettings to easily turn off 3G or wifi. Or to turn off the annoying rotation.

    Tell them that you want to be able to background apps. It's your phone, it's your battery. If it runs down, thats fine. (It doesn't anyway, but thats besides the point.) Tell them you want to use mQuickDo to easily switch apps, background apps, etc.

    Tell them you want to be able to send a text message from within any application, or answer one without leaving the app you're in.

    Tell them you want to put 5 icons in your dock, or have 5 columns, or have themes.

    Tell them you want to put apps in folders.

    Maybe you want to change your carrier logo or name. Trust us Apple, we aren't going to forget we're on AT&T, we have to pay them every month.

    These aren't very bold requests. If some freelance guy can write the codes for these apps, is it out of line for us to expect Apple to be able to? I mean, come on Apple. It's ridiculous.

    But the point is, we need to tell them why. We need to tell them how unhappy we are that they limit our choices. If we don't speak up, the chance of us getting what we want is 0%.

    And we're sending these requests to the Apple that published that report saying jailbreaking could severely damage the network?

    Sorry to be disparaging, but I really don't think they're going to change their minds when they discover our love of the 5 icon dock.

    And they're never going to allow jailbreaking, this is control freak lock everything down Apple remember?

    Don't forget, Apple also likens those who jailbreak to terrorists. Yeah, they're just a whole barrel of laughs over there at the Apple compound. I hear they've had new 50 caliber turrents installed around the perimeter and they've hired Dick Cheney as the personal bodyguard of Twigboy Jobs.

    Sorry, this won't work. As long as jailbreak is tied to unlocking it won't fly.

    I use a combination of tlert (and popup blocker) for replying and biteSMS for sending. Works like a charm.

    With tlert, the text comes up as a small little bubble that you can move out of the way. When youre ready to reply, you just tap on it and then reply. With biteSMS, you hit the volume key, tap on the volume screen that comes up and can compose.

    For all others:

    The point I'm trying to make isn't for Apple to allow jailbreaking. It is for Apple to implement the features we want into the iPhone. Making it so we don't *have* to jailbreak our phones just to get what we want out of them.

    I doubt they'll do either... They've known what people wanted from the beginning and they are still selling phones like mad.

    No way they'd just let jailbreakers go either. It Steve Jobs made a toaster he'd try to tell you what kind of bread to use.
