Jailbreak Your iPhone?
 
I've read several articles recently on why you should Jailbreak your shiny new iPhone.

I'm looking for the other side...

Anyone have any input on why you shouldn't?

Anyone brick their iPhone while attempting to Jailbreak it?

Anyone successfully Jailbreak their iPhone and were sorry they did it and restored it to its previous factory firmware?

Just curious.

This is so wrong to put on an iPhone...

One down side is you have to backup all your jail break items, restore to old OS for updates, and then re-jailbreak you phone again. Did it once, not worth it to me.

Ah! This is the kind of thing I'm looking for. I haven't seen that mentioned in any of the research I've done.

Thanks.

If you jailbreak it can it then do multi tasking? I mean, will things run in the background?

There is an app for apps.

Supposedly, with the Backgrounder app. (An application not allowed by the App Store.)

Jailbreaking allows you to use the iPhoney on any network.

No, Steve only wants cultists doing one thing at a time.
