Best Jailbreak Method
What is the best jailbreak method for the Verizon iPhone 4. I just purchased it this week and I tried jailbreakme.com, but I had a lot of issues. I have restored it back to factory settings and am looking for the most stable jailbreak method. Please help!

Okay as far as technical stuff goes it IS possible. Technically speaking, CDMA devices are already unlocked. The way they are activated is by supplying the IMEI or ESN to the carrier and it needs to be in their approved list of devices. The only way to get them to add an unbranded device to this list is to annoy the hell out of dozens of people or to know somebody working at the CDMA carrier. Theoretically you could get an iphone onto Sprint if you know the right people working there. Its just such a slim chance of it happening that its hardly worth even trying. Most of the time now they reject any attempts to add devices to their list.
Obviously a VZW iphone on T-Mobile or AT&T is impossible as they use different radios.

a) Would suffer the same kinds of limitations that an iPhone on T-Mobile currently suffers (or suffered with no 3G speeds, sketchy MMS, etc)
b) Would not last long as Sprint (and VZW as well, probably) scrub their system looking for things like this on a very regular basis
c) Would absolutely get the person who entered the info into their system fired, possibly (though not likely) prosecuted
While it may be possible, it would definitely not be worth it.

But since B and C are so much more likely to bar porting a phone than A is, we will probably never know for certain.
Though if the rumor mills are true, Sprint doesn't have long to wait before they get an iPhone of their own.
Oh, and I forgot a point D) You risk getting your account closed and banned from ever becoming a (primary) Sprint customer again
I worked for Sprint for a number of years, I wouldn't put it past them.
In any case, though, unlocking only makes sense and only works for GSM phones.

Obviously if you changed roms or hard reset you ran the risk of losing your service but hackers found a way.
A good friend of mine has a friend (I know..I hate that crap) who reported seeing some type of prototype iphone on the DMD list. We'll see if it happens but it does seem to exist in some form.

Yes, it means you're jailbroken, welcome to the not so exclusive club
The primary difference is that you don't need a PC or Mac to do it. Really, that's all. There are some people who say one method is more stable than others (redsn0w is reportedly one of the more stable methods, when compared to jbme.com), but realistically all of the methods accomplish the same thing.
