Wow I can't imagine hvanig an Un-Jailbroken Iphone because when apple and at&t slowly spoon feed these so called features they need to do their due diligence on in order to assure quality control and performance, our Jailbroken iphones are working fine and I bet if you took a poll everyone and their mother! yes their mother! would rather be jailbroken and take their chances versus an expensive motorola razor by apple! Ok maybe I was harsh with the razor but you get the drift! Ten thumbs up for Jailbreaks! it's called testing! and we all use at our own risk! just show your Lockscreen (lockinfo) to a non jailbroken Iphone user and they will feel like they are being robbed! and if you show them anything else forget it they will feel like jerks!

With NO ticket for a night, everyone cried. What is this stupid logic among Chinese waiting overnight for a phone to buy, not cheap though?
