    just make sure you do expert mode, as simple mode is only for the ipod touch. i also recommend looking up step by step instructions on how to do it.

    So,

    Jailbreaking basically unlocks the iphone's software and allows you to download third party applications. things like changing the background of the phone, or the font, things like that which apple wont let you do. it does however void your warranty. if you want more detailed information, there are tons of articles that talk about the ins and outs of it.

    I highly recommend you read this tutorial on how to unlock your 3G iPhone. It gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make your SIM independant. It was created by the iPhone dev team and it's a piece of software called yellowsn0w.

    As stated above, your warranty is void if you do this, so just make sure there is nothing wrong with your iPhone before you do it :p

    Basically Jailbreaking is not unlocking.............Its much more different than that.It is risk free. Everything that works before jailbreaking continues to work after. Jailbreaking only adds features. Jailbreaking is risk free and cannot void your warranty. You can simply restore in iTunes at anytime to get back to a factory state.
