Why would anyone want to jailbreak their iOS device?

Some people don't like the walled garden approach of Apple JZ. It's fine for many but not all. Horses for courses you see, we aren't all born the same ;)

And there are a few cosmetic and functional things that you can only do with a JB still.

I have never jail broken an apple product yet, I am a purist like JZ I guess, I just need my iPhone to work without hiccups, and the possibility of something going wrong with the phone after it has been jail broken scars the living bejesus out of me, and could cost me money in the form of lost sales, and customers, if they can't get onto me.

I've seen a jail broken iPhone and I even use a JB iPad at work.... But I would never JB my own devices. It makes the device messy and I don't really want to stuff anything up.

I've seen jail broken phones too. Then I show them all the new features on my phone they don't have and can't have them. Because if they upgrade they lose the jail break. Too much hassle in my book. I really don't see any advantage of jail breaking.

The new features you get in a new iOS are only unavailable until the next jailbreak comes out. That is what the original poster has stated, the new jailbreak is available. Hence all the new iOS features are available to jail breakers as well as the features only available once you jailbreak.

It's all down to personal choice but the simple fact is that you can do more with a jailbroken phone. If you're happy with Apple dictating what your device is capable of that's fine, if you're not, jailbreak

But look how long you have to wait for the jail breaks to get the new features. Plus I've never seen anything interesting on a jail broken phone that some app won't do anyway. Let's be honest jail breaking is just like pirating movies or music. Some people just want everything for free.

Bit of a generalization JZ. Why has America deemed it perfectly legal to jail break if it is piracy? I understand you don't want to but try and see things from others point of view too :0)

I don't see the value in jail breaking myself, but I do understand the argument that the owner has purchased the product and should therefore be able to use it however they like (within reason). I don't see the piracy side - it isn't getting a paid product for nix...

I see it pretty much like purchasing a car and then fitting a custom part. You might void your warranty but as long as it doesn't break the law, then what is the harm?

My son had an iPod touch that someone at school jail broke (is that the term?) for him. I updated it for him a few weeks later not knowing it would go back to 'normal'. He was not impressed with me.

All I'm asking is what's the point? I just have never seen anything that changes the phone dramatically. One person showed me that he didn't need to slide to unlock the phone. It just seems pointless. What "great" advantages does jail breaking offer?

For an Apple fan like you, nothing JZ. You aren't interested in jail breaking so don't worry about it. End of problem

Put Siri on the iPad.
BBSettings (let's you swipe to access most frequently used sys prefs).
I think you can add widgets and the like.
As Islandhead says - if it's not for you don't worry. (It's not for me either!)

i'm not worried about it, just curious, if i want to find about something thats up to me. there is no problem.

i'm definitely no Microsoft fan but i keep up to date with what they are doing,

to be anti "something" you need to be pro "something" and need to understand both sides.

Strange, I never mentioned 'anti' or Microsoft. But I don't see you seeing both sides of much. But I guess that's just me. Live long and prosper

you obviously didn't understand what i was saying.

firstly i was using microsoft as an example - even though i'm a huge Apple fan and don't see microsoft doing anything exciting i still keep up with what both sides are doing, regardless of my view of either company.

and i never said you mentioned anti, again it was an example

so in simple english (in case i'm being to confusing), i simply would like to know the benefits of jail breaking, as i am "anti" jail breaking, and "pro" not jail breaking,

hence my statement " to be anti "something" you need to be "pro" something

just like when i'm watching a game of tennis with one of my favourite players, i like to know the weakness and strengths of his opponent.

again i like to see from both sides

if you don't actual know why people jail break their phones then you don't have to reply to my posts, i'm sure someone will eventually post up the benefits (apart from the few already mentioned)

hope that clears things up.

Than you for talking slowly so I can understand.

Benefits include:
complete customisation of your device.

The ability to use software that didn't make it into the App store due to Apples stringent policies or that the developers begrudge the 30% cut to Apple (do not knee jerk and assume these are pirate programs)

FaceTime over 3G

Running a different OS. Abhorrent to Apple users but some people like to use their initiative, explore and discover.

I humbly hope in my diminished intellectual capacity I have used the correct terminology and language.

thank you for finally explaining the benefits of jail breaking

and if you were insulted by last post then it you shouldn't have kept knocking me down each time i asked for someone to explain the so called benefits of jail breaking ( which still doesn't seem all that exciting)

an in the future don't tell me when i need to know or not know about a topic,
