jail break questions
so i played with a iphone for three days and loved it (currently a BB curve user)....
i am thinking of moving to the iphone and hoping somebody could help answer a few questions I still have...
i read a few threads about jailbreaking the iphone and still very confused...
what exactly is the advantage of jailbreaking ? from what i read it seems u can just install apps from the net for free vs paying for them in the app store ? i have heard the device can keep u better alerted if you have new mail if its jailborken can anybody elaborate on this ?
I am running windows XP, is it possible to jailbreak the device running OS2.2 from the sticky thread i read this can only be done on the mac ? i have heard peoples phone turn to bricks running jail break (what are the actual risks) :/ is it possible to still revert it back to OS2.2 if it does become a brick ? or if i dont like the jailbroken and decide its not worth the risk can i revert it before it becomes a brick ?
and maybe this should be posted in another forum but i use aim a lot on my blackberry, does anybody know if there will be any "Always on solutions" for aim on iphone ? also google maps seems to only pinpoint me within 80 meters is the GPS just not very accurate on the device ? any rumors on turn by turn software for the thing?
with that said i absolutely love the thing, its smooth, i dont have to think much on how to use it, comes very naturally...the bloomberg stock app is absolutely amazing seems to give me realtime information and i can even turn the device to see the graphs, and stock news!!! must have for the investor. youtube is also amazing i just love it! i really want to keep the device and replace it with my BB!
your guys input would be greatly appreciated
