If jailbroken, you can download additional applications, themes, games etc. The phone will work normally if unlocked/jailbroken on any network except 3 I think. There is information in this thread about unlocking/jailbreaking. http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/171022/iphone-price-reduced-to-169-from-to/showthread.php?t=171022

A "jailbroken" Iphone is one that allows the installation of 3rd party apps - little pieces of software onto the phone. So for example - the iphone 2g doesn't allow MMS messaging - there is a third party app that enables this.

The iPhone is often unlocked when it is jailbroken. It's extremely easy - a problem like QuickPwn or Winpwn will do it, and its very user friendly.

Jailbreaking allows third party apps, unlocking allows the phone to be used on any network except 3 network.

If you bought one unlocked/jailbroken and activated then it would function as normal in general with itunes and could be updated via Itunes - but this would then lock the handset. So you would have to update, and unlock/jailbrake the phone again.

Unlocked means it will work on any network, jailbroken is the ability to install apps. You need both to get the best from your iphone. You can still use it with itunes and update the ipod, pictures, games etc using that.

When you plug it into itunes, it will ask you if you want to update the software - when the iphone 3g was released they also released an update. Just click no, otherwise your phone will be locked to o2 and you will have to unlock it again!

lol - click on the scales next to the username of the person you want to leave rep for. You can add a message or leave balnk, if you want them to know who it is off you will have to add your name, as it doesnt do that, most leave a message like thanks and leave their username, others leave it blank (usually because there not aware) :thumbsup:
