    New iPhone

    My rzr died so I went out and got me a replacement the iPhone was just to interesting to resist. Its a very enjoyable phone but now I have question.

    I have seen previous references to "jailbreaking" the phone. What does this do and how does this help an average joe like me? (I did search the web but what I found was written in iL33t)

    It easy to do.....really is. either windows or mac. I used this website. It opened the phone up to do much more than I imagined ! Its reversible too in case you need to take the phone in for warranty purposes. Just restore it back to factory settings in iTunes.

    There are two programs out there. Pwntool and Pwnage for jailbreaking the iphone

    they've got a video recorder too its called Cycorder


    You can Jailbreak the iTouch also

    Yeah it doesn't look hard to do, but is it worth doing and why? I'm really confused as to the benefits.

    YES !!!! you get so many applications that are free and it opens up features Apple doesn't even have. the iphone doesn't even have video, but there are programs for it. I can't describe what all it can do...its amazing. Once you jailbreak it, you need to install "sources" so you can get all the applications.
    I wsh I could show you my phone in person just to give you an idea of what all it can do.

    More games, more applications, better battery life due to programs offered, better volume...the list goes on and on...

    and it is reversible

    The phone is locked because they want you to use the app store instead of using free apps.

    correct. the apple does have free apps, but nothing compared to [Cydia]. the icon that will have all the new apps.

    When you jailbreak it, this icon will appear as well as the installer icon

    I like Nokia phones.
    I went down and tried the iPhones yesterday in the AT&T store, I had the sales girl call me from the back of the store on her phone and I have to say; the sound quality on the iphone SUCKED. I thought my RAZR was bad until I listened to the iPhone quality, very mushy. I loved the browser ability for the internet, very slick with the touch screen and all. I'll probably end up getting one eventually, but I wasn't thrilled with the phone quality at all.
