How safe is an unlocked iPhone with Itunes?
I've been following iPhone news since it was released and have finally decided to take the plunge. I am planning on either buying an pre-unlocked phone or buying a normal one and unlocking it myself to use with Tmobile in the states, but I just wanted to be sure that I would still have full functionality of the phone (minus visual voicemail of course).
That being said, how safe will it be to use my unlocked iPhone with iTunes constantly? Will iTunes be able to detect my hacked iPhone and brick it for me? I know not to do any updates on my phone once its been hacked to avoid bricking, will I also have to withhold from updating iTunes patches as well? Any information and suggestions would be greatly appreciated to keep me from accidentally turning my phone into a $400 paperweight. Thanks!
p.s. I am currently running iTunes vers. 188.8.131.52
