Just got a new iPhone 3G; Jailbreak/Activation Q's
Hey everyone, I just recieved a new iPhone 3G, and even after the nagging voice in the back of my head said not to update my iPhone until I read about hacking; I did so anyway. So now I'm sitting with a iPhone 3G 2.2 with the new baseband and wondering what to do.
As I see it my options are:
-to attempt to return the phone to Rogers and get a new one (which they might be reluctant to do since there is no serious problem, and I have heard that all returned iPhones are sent back to Apple; I could use some help coming up with a reason ), and keep it on the older baseband, allowing me to J, U and A it when the activation tool is released, allowing me to switch from Rogers to Bell sometime in the future
-however, since I am able to use Rogers now on this phone, I may as well just Jailbreak it (I believe I do not have to activate it since it is already activated? I could be wrong.) and be content with that since I do not mind staying with rogers. But I have a few question about this. If I Jailbreak my phone; will Rogers be able to find out? And will it void the warranty?
The person who purchased this phone for me recieved a line concerning jailbreaking it that if it broke after jailbreaking I would have to buy a new one since nothing would cover me; is this true? Is it not just possible to restore everything to factory settings and return it to Rogers/Apple for a replacement if something hardware(or even the jailbreak?) goes wrong?
Finally; if I jailbreak the iPhone now; but in 2 years decide to switch cellphone coverage provider; am I able to restore it to normal and then use the (presumable out by then) unlocker for the new baseband to change services?
Sorry for all the questions Just eager to get that Youtube video downloader on this puppy

If you have jailbroken it, you can always restore using itunes and the phone will be back to its factory settings and your warranty won't be void anymore.
If you decide to chage the service provider within 2 years, and if dev team comes up with a 2.2fw unlock, it should not be a problem for you to use the phone with a different service provider as long as it is GSM. Remeber, you are not going to be able to use Bell's services in iPhone simply bcz its different technology, not because of any software unlock. If you want to use bell, try the Samsung Instinct.
