    Default [iPhone 3G] What are the reasons to only Jailbreak it ?

    I'm wondering what kind of functionality you can get out of a jailbroken, not unlocked, 3G ipHone running 2.0, as I understand that the Dev team has managed to jailbreak it but not unlock it due to the bootloader. So my question is this: what functions do you still get on a jailbroken phone? EG could you still put in a ATT prepaid sim card and have it work? Where I'm from (Oz) every single phone carrier save one has signed up for the iPhone so if I could use a jailbroken phone on one of those networks I'd be pretty happy...

    You would have everything except the ability to make & receive calls

    Unless you had an official contract as well.

    My reason to Jailbreak ONLY whilst on an official O2 contract, was due to wanting to install native apps via Installer, and manipulate local config files (increase mail checking frequency from 15mins to 5mins).

    Edit: Sorry, this was specific to my 1st gen iPhone, not my 3G

    > dev team already unlocked tthe phone

    really!????
    look at the video more closely, what they actually did was unlock a 2G phone on FW 1.1.4, not a 3G phone

    then they put FW 2.0 on the 2G phone and it was still unlocked

    that does NOT mean they can unlock a 3G phone

    it ONLY means they can use FW 2.0 on an unlocked 2G phone

    at least, thats my current understanding

    what they can do to a 3G is jailbreak it, but that wont get you phone service

    please correct me if I am mistaken

    Even I thought the same that the Dev-Team need to YET get the 3G Baseband unlocked. I think the video showed a 1.1.4 baseband with 1.2.2 firmware. This may be the apt procedure for existing unlcocked iPhones.

    Things would be very clear if they show a video of 3G browsing/broadband test. That would mean even the latest iPhones can be unlocked with the latest baseband - without resorting to have to downgrade the baseband to 1.1.4 - without the losing the 3G advantage.
