    Default using someone elses computer to back up and restore

    I am going to be jailbreaking my friends phone..my question is if i hook my friends phone up to my cousins laptop that already has iTunes, will I be able to do a back up and restoreif needed? Even though its my cousins iTunes?

    Yes. It will not interfere with the backups your cousin may have already or at least it shouldn't. Me and my daughter used to back up out iPhones to the same computer without any problems. Although that was a few years back, I don't think that ability would change.

    No you should be fine. Only thing is when you sync your iPhone with your cousin's computer. It may wipe your music and pictures on the device.

    If you're you're using OS 5 or higher. You can back up too Apple's Cloud.
