Seven Reasons to Jailbreak Your iPhone

This article is about different incentives to “jailbreak” your iPhone. We do not encourage doing this, but here are just a few reasons why people do.

The U.S. Copyright Office has ruled that it’s no longer a violation of copyright law to jailbreak your iPhone. However, it’s still a violation of your agreement with Apple and will void your warranty. But, in case you want some tempting reasons to hack your iPhone, here you go:

Get the Real Google Voice
There already is a “legal” way to use Google Voice on your iPhone, but it has limitations, and you have to go through the Safari browser to use it. For the real Google Voice experience, jailbreakers should look at GV Mobile.

Unlock Your Phone and Dump AT&T
Jailbreaking an iPhone can allow you to use a different SIM card, but you’ll still need a GSM carrier like T-Mobile.

More System Info and Settings with SBSettings
SBSettings gives you quick access to Wi-Fi settings, Bluetooth or 3G that you can turn on and off with simple toggle switches, and system info. You can change settings that Apple doesn’t allow you to access.

Re-Theme your iPhone with WinterBoard
With an app like WinterBoard you can customize your screen’s theme to things like popular TV shows.

Use 3G or Wi-Fi with 3G Unrestricted
3G Unrestricted allows you to use 3G connectivity for apps that would normally be restricted to Wi-Fi from wireless routers.

Haptic Feedback Makes Your iPhone Buzz
For $2.99 you can buy Haptic Pro. It uses the iPhone’s vibrator to add sensory feedback to things you touch on the screen.

Running “Cracked” Apps is Wrong But…
Disclaimer: Software publishers need to be compensated for their applications and running pirated software is not legal. However, a popular reason for jailbreaking is running “cracked” applications.
