    Well :

    Jailbreaking an iPhone gives user the ability to use it to it’s fullest potential. Not being limited to what apple allows us to do.

    Using a stock iPhone (Not Jailbroken) is like using a regular phone and that’s exactly what it’s NOT made for !

    Freedom of speech means something, if Apple doesn’t see that well, they need to get a life !

    Ch33rs & Thanks Vinay 😉

    Being able to use tools like the SBsetings, cyrecorder, make the Jailbreak be proved necessary.

    greetings from Bolivia


    Tener la posibilidad de usar herramientas como el SBsetings, cyrecorder, hacen que el Jailbreak sean nesesarios.

    saludos desde bolivia

    I love to jailbreak because it is the best way to enhance the whole iPhone experience. Without jailbreak, great apps such as these are just not possible. Thanks for the chance to win

  5. Anthony Zeng November 25, 2009

    Jailbreaking let’s out the very true potential of the iPhone!

  6. Luiz Antonio November 25, 2009

    I love jailbreak because I can use a huge quantity of new apps and also unlock my iPhone for my country!

  7. Stephen Gillis November 25, 2009

    Smartscreen is not only convenient, but makes common use applications more readily accessible. This, in turn, makes the iPhone even a better portable tool for daily use.

    Jailbreak, for me, is especially nice because I travel a lot and without the tethering feature, I would be dead in the water trying to VPN back to my office to work. Tethering is a natural extension of the iPhone and to not have it really kills a functionality of what I use my iPhone for every week!

    Like a former poster has already commented, Many thanks to Saurik, GeoHot, DevTeam, and any others that have contributed to JB, BlackRa1n, and the various unlocking solutions!

  8. Alexandru Timis November 24, 2009

    A jailbreaked iPhone is like a Mac in your pocket.
    I couldn’t live without biteSMS, Backrounder, 3G Unrestrictor, iMobileCinema and other apps availble only for jailbreaked iPhones. Cydia is way more useful than App Store, which has 90% crap.
    Everythnig is possible thanks to people like Saurik, DevTeam, GeoHot and others..
    Thank you!

  9. Mainul Haque November 24, 2009

    Thanks a lot….with out jailbreaking the iphone/iPod can’t use with anyother sim that we like. So, it is very important to jailbreak. Plus wcould use some free application and thank you guys for it. Hoping to see new post here…..

  10. loaguna November 24, 2009

    thank you!

  11. Branden November 24, 2009

    I love the ability to change anything I want on my ipod

  12. tsfjones November 24, 2009

    thank you!

  13. Michael Louis November 24, 2009

    I love the enhancements you get from jailbreaking (backgounding apps, Cygets, etc.)

  14. Safi November 24, 2009

    One simple reason I jailbreak… My iPhone is mine and I want it to be like no other out there. That’s why I theme it, mod it& change the interface to be like what Mr. Jobs never intended it to be… 🙂
    that’s whi it now looks like this.. http://twitpic.com/ph81z

  15. Aaron November 24, 2009

    I like to jailbreak my iPod because it opens up so many new possibilities for it. Want to customize your springboard? Winterboard. Want to run something in the background? Backgrounder. Want to install basically anything that Apple won’t let you? Cydia. There are so many benefits to jailbreaking.., there’s not enough room to fit them all here! 😛

  16. James November 24, 2009

    I like it.

  17. Wizzard Rincewind November 23, 2009

    Jailbreaking the iPhone allows me to extend its usefulness, usability and functionality.
    ‘Nuff said!

  18. Justin Richardson November 23, 2009

    I love jailbreaking because it allows me to shoot video with my 3g, customize the look of my iPhone, travel the world using different sim carriers, and have a 5 icon dock!!! Oh yeah the ‘real’ flashlight is awesome too. Thanks for the contest! Best of luck to everyone.

  19. eric November 23, 2009

    jailbreaking is the only way to get the iphone working as apple should have made it in the first place: theming, backgrounding, sbs-toggles, sms helper, to name but a few.
    smartscreen looks good, but as I discussed in another forum ( http://bit.ly/5fPYWO ): not worth it in the lite version (it takes the music controls away from the lockscreen)

  20. Jarrett Hickman November 23, 2009

    Jailbreaking makes the iPhone worth having. It’s like having a Toyota Supra and being told that it has to stay stock. Also just because Apple doesn’t approve it doesn’t mean that it’s not any good or needed. IMO jailbreaking in the reason Y some of us still have our iPhones.

  21. Sasan November 23, 2009

    Jailbreaking my iPhone is so good ! I can install many thing easily via cydia …

  22. aditya trivedi November 23, 2009
  23. Spboon November 23, 2009

    id love to try this out…count me in

  24. Raul Mtz November 23, 2009

    Jailbreaking for me is a matter of principle. I bought this phone for a pretty penny hence I am entitled to use it the best way it suits my needs. Sadly apple has failed to care for customers and forced us to jailbreak in the pursue of freedom.

  25. Laze November 23, 2009

    I like smart screen. I was using intelliscreen, after that transfered to LockInfo, and to cydget, but none of them fulfilled my expectations. Hope this one will. Greets!

  26. muhammad Adil November 23, 2009

    i love to jailbreak my iphone cuz f**k apple for the carrier lock and makin it useless for us xD, thx in advance cuz i know i m gonna be one of the winners lmao xD

  27. Leon November 23, 2009

    I love to jailbreak my iphone because I dont want to be in the grips of Apple.
    I like to choose what I do with My gadgets!

  28. Norman Rindom November 23, 2009

    I think this will be a great app for me becasue it will largly diminish the number of times I unlock my phone each day to get basic information!

  29. Ben F November 23, 2009

    I love jailbreaking because it iritates me to have a company that’s making millions of dollars a year have control of a product that they no longer own/have possesion of. With jailbreaking the possibilities are endless with themes, mods, free apps, emulators and more!

  30. Eyad M. November 23, 2009

    I love to jailbreak because it gives me more freedom and power with my phone to change and adjust it so that it fits my needs and wants. And also I love the unlock because it gives me the freedom of choice to pick the provider I want rather than falling under AT&T’s monopolistic control!

  31. Srikanth November 23, 2009

    Nice one m8, SmartScreen is a GREAT development from the community.

  32. Christopher Leung November 23, 2009

    I followed you on twitter, subscribed to your free daily e-mail news letter and have spread my words to my friends.

    Now, I love to jailbreak my ipod touch because it allows me to install 3rd party applications like Netshare which is not available on the apple store and i can change my ipod’s looks and feel with winterboard.

    I hope i get the license. =)

  33. vickarth November 23, 2009

    Hey!!! i would love to have the Smartscreen on my iPhone…the reason to jailbreak is to have those features/apps which should have been by default and provided by apple.

  34. Squirrel61 November 23, 2009

    Is there really noone who’s interested in this app, except me?

    Well, the reason why I love jailbreaking my iDevices is that I don’t want to be factory-limited. In fact, I’m hacking every electronic device in my house. PSP, NDS, Xbox, you name it and it is hacked.

    The main benefits for me of jailbreaking the iPhone are carrier unlocking, the ability to install the apps that Apple is refusing for the appstore and the ability to SSH/SCP into my iPhone.

  35. Sami Laakkonen November 23, 2009

    Jailbreaking makes iPhone perfect! Without it phone is just a bulk one, but after releasing phone’s capabilities it’s totally unique!

  36. Madalin Penciu November 23, 2009

    I love my jailbroken iphone because it practicaly gets unlimited! it is amazing how many things you can do with it! and of course crackulous makes it even better!

  37. josh ward November 23, 2009

    ok before i ever got an iphone i never knew what jailbreaking was til i got one i help ppl jailbreak there phones and they love it i alsop love it cause it just gives u freedom to get ne thing u want i love the tweaks and all that it has really changed the way that i look at the iphone and its software and why it is the best phone in my opinion that you can ever expect to get

  38. fe kaylius November 23, 2009

    the iphone is a freaking computer, i jailbreak mine so that i have control over it like a computer, access to file system, etc. just imagine how lame a macbook would be if you couldn’t dig around.

  39. Wasil November 23, 2009

    I like to jailbreak my iPhone because without jailbreak you cannot use the full potential of the little powerhouse called iPhone.

    About this app, I’m using the lite version, and its pretty cool. Can’t wait to get the free license.

  40. Rajiv Y Shah November 23, 2009

    Jailbreak makes the iPhone Complete !
    Adds to it what Apple missed/ditched !

  41. CPL Romeo Sanchez November 23, 2009

    Hope to win

  42. Jose perez November 23, 2009

    I love to jailbreak because it is very fun and you are free to use what ever you want.You don’t have to rely on apple all the time you can use cydia and rock ,themes ,download movies well alot of great suff you can’t do unjailbroken o and use app’s for free well most of them.Thanks to everybody that have the brain to do it.Thanks to iHackintosh for leting me know by email about updates thanks again!!!!!!

  43. Angel Zavaleta November 23, 2009

    I love jailbraking because it makes me feel special among those that I know and have an iPhone, because they could feel cool because they have an iPhone but not knowing that you can do more than just having an iPhone is not cool, things such and customize your Springboard, being able to play with the console and having apps that let you take real advantage of what the iPhone represents.

  44. kylexy November 23, 2009

    change themes,lot of great apps that apple dont wanna see,remove 3g limiation,,,,,and smartscreen just give me another reason:)
