Can jailbreaking damage my phone
Hi. I jailbroke my iphone 3gs a couple of months ago and have been very happy with it except that since doing so it switches itself off and then on again in the middle of a phone call. Today it has done this 3 times.
At the weekend I restored the iphone and then rejailbroke it to see if this would correct the problem but has made no difference.
Is it posible that the jailbreak or a jailbreak app is causing this? Or is it likley to be a hardware problem that will mean a visit to the Apple store?
Thanks for any advice

Did the phone have this problem before you jailbroke? If you don't know, I would restore the phone and NOT jailbreak it. Use the un-jailbroken phone for an extended amount of time. If you are still experiencing the same problem, then it's a hardware issue.
Really the only damage jailbreaking can do is to the file system. And that's if you're generally moving/deleting files or you install some 3rd party software that has some malicious bugs in it.
