    TETHERED JAILBREAK!!!

    Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!

    If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.

    Why?

    The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.

    Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.

    It takes less than a minute.

    ALSO, being that this is a new iPhone 3G[s], that requires a tethered jailbreak, I also suggest getting a battery case.

    A good one is "Case-Mate Fuel" (google it) but it's ugly as sin. It will however, act as a case AND a charger. Or you could go to BestBuy an pick up a "InCase PowerSlider" case.

    That, and a car charger. That way the iPhone never goes off. If you have a laptop, that's ideal/superb.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Not a problem. Before panicking, and most importantly, before taking the step/plunge into jailbreaking, research, research, research. It's always a better idea than just jumping right into it and THEn dealing with the troubleshooting.

    Yes because I do it a bit. but just be aware that once your iphone is jb you warranty will be void. if you're unsure what this means...ask one of the mods ie luciver.

    Well yea, if you take it to Apple or send it back to Apple while it is still jb. Just restore it as new and you will be fine. No one will even know it was jb.
