To jailbreak or not to jailbreak? Just because you can jailbreak an iPhone and run unauthorized software, should you? Many people already do this and there are ardent fans, but in my experience, it is more of a pain in the butt than a nifty tech trick.
I’ve been operating a jailbroken iPhone for more than a year and I’m sick of it. The iPhone appears sick of me too, as it no longer works like a phone; rather, it has become — perhaps temporarily, perhaps not — an iPod touch.
I was running an iPhone 3G on T-Mobile instead of AT&T. Hence, I was running an unlocked and jailbroken iPhone. The ‘unlock’ refers to running it on a carrier other than AT&T, while jailbroken software means I downloaded apps and other goodies not approved by Apple.
