Bad Points
Void your apple warranty
You may "brick" your iPhone which means it wont work

Your bad points are a bit weak...

Despite what they say, as long as you reload a genuine firmware before taking it in, Apple store staff dont have the time or interest to confirm you have never had a JB firmware on it.

As for bricking it... you have to try REALLY REALLY hard to completely brick it - DFU mode (NOT Restore mode) will usually sort out most issues

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Sienna"]Polly, I've already ripped your inaccurate misinformation apart in another thread, don't make me do it here as well. In the other thread, i even reported myself and pointed out my reasons for making a fool out of you. One can only assume that the mods too realised you didn't have a clue what you were talking about, and let it be.

Same here.

PS: Also turns out you are a liar, but then I knew that anyway ( http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/474164/15-20-or-25-off-selected-microsoft-?p=6211031#post6211031 ) [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Well said in post #5 vibeone.

Was about to say the same thing before I read your reply.

It is very very hard to 'brick' an iPhone. As you said, dfu restore will fix a huge majority of potential problems, and if you do ever need to return/query anything with apple, just make sure you reload the genuine firmware.

Polly, you need to stop getting so sensitive when someone posts better advice than you do, or don't post misleading/inaccurate information in the first place if you don't want others to contribute.
