Jailbreaking Or Not? Pros and Cons

I'm thinking of getting an iPhone 3G but I know it has some limitations, and I'm wondering if its worth it to Jailbreak it and voiding the warranty. Just wondering the pros and cons and if its worth it thanks for the help.

well if you Jailbreak your iPhone your pretty much guaranteed to get malware on your iPhone that will not only burden your hardware but also steal personal information from your iPhone--- but you can use it on T-Mobile...

I have an unlocked iPhone 3g and 2g. I have no problems at all with them running slow or anything. I do not believe it steals your personnal information also. If so please show me exactly where you got your information from.

I used a program called Pwnage. Very quick and simply. Just need to make sure you are getting the unlock software for the right Version you are currently running. You can google it and find many of sites that can run you thru the process. I love having mine unlocked. Not only cause I use them for T-Mobile, but they give you so much more to the phone itself.

Well, first of all, Jailbreaking and unlocking the iPhone are two COMPLETELY different things. Unlocking makes it possible to use the iPhone with different carriers which I personally wouldn't recommend in the US.
Jailbreaking just lets you customize your whole phone and use 3rd party applications. If you just Jailbreak it (make sure you use the right software for your phone) you won't lose warranty. If you have any issues with your phone after you Jailbreak it, you can just restore your phone with iTunes and everything is back to normal. So no worries about warranty. Hope that helped! Let me know if you have any more questions. 😉
