    jailbreaking an iphone means making your iphone ready to install thirdparty applications.

    goto AppSnapp in your iphone browser.
    Install Appsnap.
    Once that is installs succesfully, your phone is jailbreaked.

    Revver has a video podcast that shows how to jailbreak your phone but it doesn't use AppSnapp. The site does have two video concerning using the jailbreak program.

    I would like ask the people who have their phone jailbreak; Have you had any problems with the phone misbehaving- program freezing or error messages?

    You wont be having any problem after jailbreaking.
    There are lot of third apps are waiting for you online.
    Enjoy those after installing.

    Doesn't Jailbreaking the iPhone void the warranty? Just wondering as my iPhone is brand new....
