    I had an iphone 3g that I jailbroke first with Blackra1n and then later with spirit. Throughout the course of those jailbreaks The wi fi stopped working completely, and I mean completely (I'm sure there are others here who know what I mean) Restoring the phone, installing fixes and and resetting the network settings didn't bring it back. Also my notifications stopped working. Other than that it was fully functional.

    So I now have an iphone 4 and I'm fearful that this may happen again and am hoping you all in this topic can ease my nerves about it, because that was one thing that wasn't reversible after my jailbreak. I also wonder if anyone may know what could've caused that.
    I'm guessing Jailbreaking is slightly safer now anyway. But can this happen again?

    there are always risks when jailbreaking. nobody here, or anywhere else, can guarantee that nothing like that will EVER happen again. that is why we utilize the Restore feature in iTunes to get you back to stock (and or Restore to saved shsh blobs, if that is the case)

    IF you are having any reservations you may be better off not doing it

    Cydia is the app store for JB phones. You still have your regular app store. They work identically. When there's an update, Cydia lets you know. Only difference is, you have to uninstall apps you dld'd from Cydia IN Cydia. You can't just long press on them and "X" them out. Not a big deal, if you ask me. You can still buy and pay for regular apps in the app store. It doesn't change the functionality in that area one bit. The Jailbroken apps are not in the regular app store. Think of it like an aftermarket parts place for your car. You can go to the dealer and buy the expensive crap they peddle in the Parts department (App Store), or you can go to the aftermarket shop down the street (Cydia) and get cheaper and free things for your car that will really increase performance!
    There's a cydia app to X delete them lol :P

    Although fairly technical and not completely easy, it is pretty hard to screw up, and I haven't heard of an unrecoverable bricked phone yet

    most people who are comfortable with the stock setting will go back too quickly i think. jailbreaking is not for everyone, that's for sure

    the good thing is you do not HAVE to jailbreak to enjoy your device
