    I think you’re right in the way you present this. I don’t think you are lazy; I don’t know you well enough from reading one article you wrote. Sounds like your critic is a jerk. Any rate, I think most people that carry an iPhone 3G or 3GS don’t have the time, it’s not worth breaking the warranty, and/or they are lazy. Also people are probably afraid to jailbreak when their warranty is valid. My advice is this: if you want to jailbreak your phone, do it after your warranty expires and don’t get the warranty extension for sixty-some bucks. It reminds me of people buying a new car & wondering if the car company will find out after they modified it to go faster. It didn’t stop many Honda owners because they knew their cars atleast as good as dealer mechanics. So if you know your stuff and measured the risks do it if you really want to.

    I’m with you – would love the features, but not worth the complications. Especially since all warranties and service off if you’ve jailbroken the phone.

    However, that doesn’t mean I don’t dislike the stitch-up between Apple and the phone companies. I understand the commercial benefits to them. And, I hate them for it!

    You’ve done a great job with The iPhone Blogging, Alvin. Tons of info on Jailbreak. I’m impressed.

    Larry, I like to think of myself as just an iPhone user with a blog. I only really talk about and review things that interest me, so there might be some value in that, depending on who you ask. I definitely see the value of Jailbreak, but so far I’ve been impatient with the constant updates and baseband requirements, so I haven’t yet bothered to do it again.

    C’mon man, get real! What you are saying is that you are too lazy to apply one of the most valuable tech procedures available for the iphone,namely one that gives us the ability to use software not available from the app store. Furthermore, jail breaking goes hand in hand with unlocking, so without the jailbreak technology, very possibly we all would have to have an at&t contract to use an iphone. Frankly, I am shocked by the attitude of this article. You can go on reviewing silly games, since this is what most people seem interested in, or you can write about valuable insights on the tech frontier. Since I do not need you to help me play silly putty or some other inane game, what is the use of your blog if it does not help with the tech behind the machine?
