    Default Apple Killswitch on SBSettings??

    Can anybody confirm what the apple killswitch is inside the SBSettings options? Should I leave it on or off?

    Thanks!

    On=Apple could remotely kill an app/virus. They never have, though.
    Off=Apple cannot do that.

    There is no right answer; it's up to you.

    "The killswitch is a hook in the OS that allows apple to disable an appstore app if it goes rouge. It has not ever been used, not even on the "illegal apps" (like the ones that sliped through to allow tethering). ON means the kill switch is activated. I would keep it ON, as if there is ever an iPhone Virus you'll be safe. If apple decides to be evil and turn use it or something, you can then turn it off."
