It's easy Heather S.
Download the tool, follow the exact instructions on screen (takes like 20 seconds from start to finish for your interactive part). Just make sure you have iTunes installed on the computer that you are jailbreaking from, but you do NOT want iTunes open. If it does open, just close it before starting the jailbreak.
5 minutes of automated installation after that, and poof, all the customization you could ever want.
It's not exactly free though, the jailbreak is, many of the apps are, but some of the best apps cost a couple bucks (well worth it), but they attach to your Cydia account so you can install them even after a restore and such.

My current device is the Droid X. I love the screen size and how you can customize the device, but I hate how laggy it is at times. Also the Android market is filled with alot of worthless apps. My last complaint is there are to many Android devices out, so the updates you get are minor and it takes forever to get on your device.

the is a problem when you can type the name of an app, but in the search results, it's not always at the top. forgot which app i searched for and i guess since the rating on the one i was looking for was higher, it was ahead. that never happens in the App Store (iOS).

apps. I don't think there should be questions about which has more useless ones.
Doesn't really matter. I just feel more comfortable trying out apps on iOS than I
did on Android. I'm not that much of an app degenerate. But I like to try stuff out
here and there sometimes.

The app purchase return window definitely was nice before they changed it. But like Lynx said previously, it made me stop purchasing apps that didn't have a free or trial version. The 15 minute window is not enough to actually figure out what an app can do. Hopefully Apple institutes something like this in the near future. At least a few hours, something that's manageable.
