Jailbreak your iPhone

iPhone 3GS Coming to INDIA on 9 August


Airtel and Vodafone are scheduled to bring iPhone 3GS to the Indian market in first half of August’09. According to Apple new iPhone 3G S is the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet. iPhone 3GS is packed with incredible new features and hardware including 256 MB ram, Better Graphic processor, Improved speed and performance up to twice as fast as iPhone 3G, A high-quality 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy to use video recording and hands free voice control, Longer battery life and lots more. About price the expected Tag is is 32000/- for 16GB Version and 39000/- for 32GB Version. From the prospective of Indian customers view prices are very high but if you compare to other countries, lowest price there for the 3GS 16 GB is $800(Rs. 40,000).

Should i Jailbreak/Unlock my iPhone 3GS ? 0_O ? If some one asking this question from me my answer will be Definitely, Yes. And i have done this with my iPhone 2G and 3G too. Now question about legality of iPhone jailbreaking and unlocking. So the question is Jailbreaking iPhone is Legal? And the answer is Yes, Jailbreaking is legal however, you technically “void” your warranty. Hacking the iPhone/iPod Touch is not illegal. While Apple would like to make you think it is illegal, it is not. It is impossible to get in any legal trouble for hacking iPhone/iPod Touch . You and Apple made an exchange. You gave Apple money they asked and they gave you an iPhone/iPod. It is officially yours and you can do whatever you want with it.Because it is yours now, you bought it, you have the right to do whatever.

Why i Jailbreak/Unlock my iPhone 3GS ? Again if some one ask me this question i can answer whole night, here we’ll cover a few but un-negligible reasons. The first one is freedom of carrier, In INDIA you are paying 32000 rupees for a carrier locked phone and the best thing is even your phone is capable of running 3G service (indeed iPhone are meant for 3G) your provider is not providing you the 3G service. When BSNL providing 3G service (3.2 MBPS HSPDA) at a very reasonable price 3000 Rs. for an Unlimited data plan and 600 Rs. for 1GB data plan then why should i sacrifice with crappy EDGE at un bearable price for 400 MB free monthly. Also if you are running on any other carrier why you change your number for a phone only.

For Jailbreaking we have numerous reasons the biggest one is Unlocking, you can’t Unlock your iPhone 3GS without jailbreaking first. Jailbreaking is a process that allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to run unofficial code on their devices. Once you jailbreaked your iPhone you are able to download many applications, mods and hacks which are unavailable through the App Store but available via unofficial installers such as Cydia and Icy. Some of popular Cydia, Icy advantages are as on >> Winterboard (To install Themes), SBSettings (Faster Method to Manage iPhone Settings), Tricker3G (For running WiFi only App on 3G or EDGE), Cycorder (Video Recorder for iPhone 2G, 3G) and lots more.

Conclusion : Jailbreaking and Unlocking are not illegal. We are not encouraging you to jailbreak your iPhone. We are just clearing some myths about jailbreaking and unlocking. If you purchased an iPhone, it should be your right to “get under the hood,” as they say, and do what you want. Personally i m using both Unlocking and Jailbreaking my iPhones from last two years. But And keep in your mind we are not lawyers. ) In near future it seems Apple may be able to try and make a case against anyone offering software that does modify or otherwise “misuse” their copyrighted code. But that is future not the present.

Have Something To Say ?

    I saw lot of postings in EBAY which are selling IPHONES 3gs 16GB. Select someone who is having good feedback and selling for less price. I remember one US seller selling it in India for 35000 brand new Unlocked. That was a decent price. I tried to compare the prices in US EBAY site and they are selling New Unlocked Phones for 630 to 650 which comes to (29000 to 30000). So selling it for 35000 should be good deal as shipping and customs would be involved.

    while you say that people should jailbreak their iphones you should warn them of the possible problems.
    it makes the iphones insecure and open to malware. as of now there not much out there. just one harmless worm, but soon there could be more.
    also it makes the software more unstable. so if you jailbreak your phone may crash more often.
    so basically if you want to stay with your carrier (airtel or vodafone) you should not jailbreak.

    There is no way u can get an iphone 3gs for 199$ from UK. I live in UK and i can assure you that it is not possible. I own a 3gs and ive paid 420 GBP.
    Wake up!!

    so many dates passed and the 3gs still isn’t here yet 🙁 …my hopes are up for 28th aug though but i’m not really sure…

      @ Vishu i m waiting for 10th Sep. if Apple release fine otherwise i’ll go for a gray market one…

  9. Vishu August 15, 2009 Reply

    yea that dealer is definitely selling those chinese fakes, no one can give you a 3GS for free just like that.

  10. Vishu August 6, 2009 Reply

    @ Mihir i think you can easily tell by the build quality if the iphone is original or a fake model, & after you boot it everything becomes clear as the original iphone boots into the mac osx operating system while those chinese counterparts load up their own firmware.
    btw, can u shed some light on this uk dealer?…i mean where you met him & his delivery & payment methods?..as i personally am interested in buying the 3GS but due to the delay in airtel launch i’m gettind a bit desperate 😛

      @ Vishu I talked with Mihir over e-mail and he says one of his friend in UK and one dealer offers iPhone 3GS @ $199 and if you buy 2 phones he’ll give you third phone at no extra cost. I m sure he is making fool with chinese iPhone which are easily available at DHgate.com @ 100$

    Dear Sir,
    Your information was quite useful.I have got a dealer in the UK who is selling me the unlocked version of the iphone 3gs 16GB at just 199$ and he claims that it can run on any sim card & in any country.
    He is also offering me 1 iphone 3GS 16Gb free along with the two iphone 3GS that i am buying.
    I will personaly be goin to the shop for buying it.Is that iphone genuine or its the duplicate of iphone?
    Please let me know what to check in that phone to ensure that my cell is a genuine one and not the duplicate one.
    Thank You.
