From the article: Definition of an Unlocked iPhone
The iPhone works with one cell phone carrier: AT&T. But for people who are willing to take some risks, there are options. Jailbreaking an iPhone lets users install whatever software they want and use their choice of cell phone carrier. However, Apple strongly discourages jailbreaking, won’t support jailbroken phones. Some people even claim that this is breaking law. What do you think: is jailbreaking right or wrong? Weigh In
JUST DO IT ALREADY
- I would jailbreak my iDevice if I could. I spent 2 hours trying to jailbreak my iPod 5, but then I found out I was on iOS 6.1.3. If you are on 6.1.2 or less, I highly recommend jailbreaking your device. If you still feel uncomfortable about jailbreaking it, there is no need to. Once you buy the device there is no limit to what you can do to it. So go ahead and do whatever you want to do with your phone because there is no one stopping you from doing it. No one is and no one will. Ever.

- All those downing the jailbreaking of iPhones probably have never jailbroken their device. I have jailbroken iPads, iPhones, and iPods with not one ever having a problem. It's not illegal and you get the best out of your iDevices when you jailbreak. So grow a pair of balls and go for it. Worst case if you don't like it (which I don't see how you won't, considering EVERYTHING you will be able to do with a jailbreak) you connect to iTunes and just go back to your plain iPhone that Apple wants you to have. Hey, it's your iPhone, you should be able to do what you want. It's not ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!

Does Apple get mad?
- Does Apple get mad that the apps that are not free, and then you get it for free, so they are losing money becaue of jailbreaking. [They probably do get mad. Plus, when people do that, they're stealing from the developers of the apps and not rewarding them for their hard work. -- Sam]

iPhone locked and jailbreak
- These locks and blocks are a restriction on trade: They must be illegal in any sensible country! No problem in Vietnam :) America, land of the free! Come on, tell me another one!

Not Exactly Sure...
- I wanna jailbreak my phone but reading reviews actually changes my mind a little. Should I do it just for the hell of it?

iPhone update 6.1.3
- iPhone update 6.1.3 has just been released and I don't think that jailbreaking it is worth it because if something goes wrong then it's just wasting your money buying a new plan and everything, carriers charging more money than ever. It's not worth it. If you want to jailbreak an iPhone jailbreak the iPhone 3.

- JAILBREAK IT! If you have a device with a large storage capacity, totally go for it. But if you have an 8 GB (like my iPod touch), you might want to wait until you get a device with more storage, becuase you'll find that 8 GB isn't enough. It takes 1 GB to install Cydia, and all the tweaks and such take up a lot of space. But if you have space to spare, definitely go for it! Just do your research first so you know what you're doing.

- If you know about electronics/tech stuff, and you want to jailbreak/unlock? It's absolutely fantastic. If you don't know, and research it fully, and decide to do it? Fantastic. It's the ignorami that don't research it and then say, "OH EM GEE YOU BROKE MY DEVICE YOU IDIOT!" that ruin it. Apple is just being precautionary by saying not to, so they don't get sued. Most people sue, not becuase there is actually a problem, but becuase they are spoiled, and think everything revolves around them, and it's OTHER people's fault that they're incompetent. Jailbreaking is not illegal, and it can be very good. BUT: If you don't know everything you need to, or you don't feel that easy about it, I highly suggest you do some research. A little research could save you from ruining your device, and will make you a bit more informed so you can tell others.
- I jailbroke my iPod a year ago and I restored it because it ran too slow, but jabreaking is still a good thing. It's not illegall unless you do something illegal with it.

It's not breaking the law
- You own the phone. There are no iPhone police. Feel free to jailbreak it if you're smart enough to do so or smart enough to undo whatever goes wrong.

we're here to capture iPhone w/o Cydia
- Apple have done not enough for customers and it should be changed immediately. Jailbreak is really good for everyone and not violating Apple's right.

- When you first hear about the ability to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV you are probably thinking, “Why should I do this?” Well, the two main reasons are to allow programs to run that Apple doesn’t approve of and to customize the look of your device. I’m going to try and cover some of the best programs (apps) that you can run and best customizations (mods) you can do after jailbreaking your device. Apple has recently done a great job of adding more and more features to the iOS software which makes many people think there is no longer the need to jailbreak their iDevice. I disagree. The jailbreaking process, along with the apps, hacks and mods that follow, are the reasons that Apple has added so many features to the iOS software. Early hacks like adding wallpaper, scrolling pages, folders and even installing apps were all started in the hacking community.

Go for it
- Our iPhones are available on prepay as well in NZ so you're free to do as you please -- your phone, yours to do what you want :) I haven't encountered any cons; it's just been pure awesomeness all the way!

- Jailbreaking is an iPhone Breaking Free, but it is against the rule of carriers.

No law broken; your phone
