jailbreaking your phoneYou probably have already heard about jailbroken phones. No, these phones did not just escape from a high-security penitentiary. However, they have broken from the limitations that the phone manufacturers have placed on them. Whether you have an iPhone or an Android device, your phone has a particular operating system and restrictions installed through your mobile carrier. Jailbreaking your phone can help you bypass those restrictions and allow you more customization.

Why Do People Want to Jailbreak Their Phones?

Many people jailbreak their phone because they want to customize the look of their cell phones, install third party applications, or add customized features not typically available on the phone. Some people jailbreak their phone so they can use it with a cell phone carrier that is different than the one they bought the phone on.

What Are the Negatives of Jailbreaking My Phone?

While there are many benefits to jailbreaking your phone, there are some negatives that you need to be aware of. After you jailbreak your phone, your warranties are void. If you have any malfunctions, your cell phone carrier will not assist you. While this is a big risk, many people still jailbreak their phones.

How Can I Fix a Jailbroken Phone?

Some people were able to restore their phone’s original settings to resolve any technical software issues.
