The answer is no.

You may be confusing a jailbreak with unlocking. To be able to use your O2 IPhone abroad without paying roaming fees, you would need first to jailbreak it and then unlock it (i.e. so that you can use a local SIM card). There are all sorts of problems involved with unlocking, especially if you have updated to the latest Firmware.

Jailbreaking the IPhone does not unlock it. It will still only work with an O2 Sim card. The only change is that you will be able to use Cydia, which is the alternative Application store, and all the Applications which come with it.

No roaming fees would be useful, but while I am in the UK I am more than happy with O2, so I have no intention of unlocking my Phone.

No i didn't mean to use another sim card i just thought the clever people might have been able to trick the phone into thinking it was still in the UK like they can trick the phone into thinking 3G is wifi. It was a long shot and in hindsight was a stupid question

This is mstly true however if you have a 2g phone jailbreaking and unlocking is basically partnof the same process

If i was to jailbreak my iphone, would i lose the applications that i had previously downloaded?

NO1FAN 29-05-2009 10:14 PM

I made the mistake last night of not backing up my data when i jailbroke it. I think if you synch with itunes before you jailbreak it it will back up all of the apps you have currently.

Mine were all fine. Although none of them would open when I first jailbroke. I reinstalled one of the free ones through the app store and then they all worked again.

Kevin T 29-05-2009 10:39 PM

What is more concerning is losing all your cydia apps next time you want to upgrade the official firmware.

Highbury Eagle 29-05-2009 11:09 PM

Ok i'm gonna take the plunge and jailbreak.

I've jailbreaked my iphone and found it a pretty painless procedure. Quite impressed with it so far and liking the extra applications.

James, you mentioned about ibluetooth. Where about's did you get it as i can't find it anywhere?

Go into Cydia on your IPhone, and select 'search' (bottom right). Type in ibluetooth and the Application you seek will appear at the top of the list.

Let me know if you still can't find it.

Thanks for that James. I downloaded it today, although yesterday when i searched for it, it wasn't on the list. Strange.

Not overly exciting is it?

James Melody 02-06-2009 12:02 PM

Hmm...well at least we are getting 'cut and paste' , MMS and video recording in the next software update.

android already has a compass and all of the other stuff they are updating. Is of use with street view I guess as you get real time visual directions.

oh and Mellors, rooted Magic, I now have exchange support.

I have a smart brass compass, if you people are interested. You could strap it to the back of your mobile phone. 100 quid.

Baloo 04-06-2009 04:04 PM

My iphone internet connection has disappeared. No wi-fi, 3G, Edge or the other one. No internet logo at all. Cannot use any app which requires internet or location.

And I can't find a way to reconnect (as I'm not in a wi-fi zone).

But my phone signal is still full strength.

Anyone else sufferring or with any ideas?

Edit: Oh, it's back. Bizarre. Did anyone else have a temporary loss of connection?

dannyboy1807 04-06-2009 04:17 PM

sometimes I just turn the phone off and on again and it's fine
