    Just for reference: iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 2.2, Windows, iTunes 8
    I have a few questions before taking the plunge:
    Does a jailbroken iPhone preserve EVERY function it had when it had the official firmware?
    e.g.
    Does it still sync music, movies, podcasts, apps, contacts, calendars when I connect it to iTunes?
    Can I still access the iPhone settings and features and change everything?
    Do all apps work the same?

    Also, what happens when a new update comes out? How would I update to the new firmware and jailbreak it and still carry over all the things from the old firmware?

    Other than that, I've read over all the stickies and guides, so I'm pretty clear on the process of jailbreaking using QuickPwn.

    Yes to all of the above.

    Also, are there ever cases when a failed jailbreak is unrestorable?

    I can't speak for everyone, but I have never had a problem performing a restore.

    If you are ever stuck, then this is the guide for you:

    Yeah, you just do a factory restore in worst case scenario and re-sync iPhone. People need to get over the jailbreak fears I say. You are not getting the full potential if you do not jailbreak.

    ^ I said this before and I will say it again. We jailbreak our phones to maximize their features and unleash their potential. Jailbreaking does NOT mean stealing Apps.

    You won't find your answer here.

    I agree, although I will say it is "possible" to do so, i wouldnt suggest it, the developers worked hard on these apps not so people can steal them. I will admit and not be a hypocrite, i have done it, but only to test out an app before i purchase it. If i dont plan on purchasing it, i most certainly delete it.

    ^ and not to mention, the best games are not going for more than $10. It is not like $50 per game (PSP anyone?).
