A small note About Jailbreak

Apple wishes to maintain its dominance on the Carrier selection and the Applications in the iPhone. By making the users stick to the carrier of its choice, Apple stands to make potential money not only with the hardware it sell, but also with part with the money that carriers get. Besides this Apple also makes money everytime you want to download a paid application. Obviously Apple wants to rake up as many sources of money as possible.

There are many who do not like Apple’s monopoly. They wish to change the carrier at will, for example many would like to change the carrier to T-Mobile or Sprint if they wish. On the top of it they want free Applications that have been developed. Jailbreaking the iPhone allows this – and it has been declared legal by the Library of Congress.
