    Hello to all!!! My wife and I will be getting our iPhones in a few days. We currently have Verizon as our provider and still have about a year left on our contract. Funny thing is that yesterday, our 7 month baby girl decided to put her mom's phone in her mouth and slobbered all over it! No worries, baby is fine, lol, but phone has water damage to it! So we go to verizon and since it has water damage all we can do is pay 50 dollars to get a new one. Well, we can put that 50 dollars towards a new phone, lol. So wife looks over the sidekick LX costing 349.99, but then thinks about it and says, shoot, if I pay 50 more dollars might as well get a iPhone!!! I was like huh? Are you sure? How about me? hahahaha. So we ordered the iPhone last night and should be here hopefully by next tuesday or so if they ship out today. We will be transfering our numbers to our new iphones so that it will automatically cancel out Verizon. Yes I know about the early termination fee, thought about it, and I don't care. You only live once right!
    Have so many questions about this little device I don't know where to start!!! How do I get AIM? For wife to communicate to her family. How do I get apps or are there any free apps?
    Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!
    Sorry for this long *** post guys, I am just VERY excited!!!

    thanks strictly!!! Okay so I read through some of the W guides about unlocking/jailraking! So unlocking means that you can unlock your phone to use it with any other provider right? Since I am a new customer to ATT I dont need to do that correcct? lol... And jailbreaking means, modding your iPhone so that you can install third party apps? So what I am looking for is just jailbreaking the phone and not unlocking it correct? Sorry for all these questions, I just dont want to brick my phone after i get it from att, lol...

    I have modded my PSP and my XV6700 from verizon... required me to flash both the psp and xv6700... what i am doing to the iphone is basically the same thing correct? lol... thanks for your help!!!

    Yep your on the right track! If you just want to install 3rd party apps your going to wanna jailbreak the phone, and install appsnap (if your running 1.1.1.) I believe thats what your gonna wanna do, If I am wrong anybody, please correct me!

    to jailbreak a fresh activated 1.1.1 phone just go to and install appsnap. its automated and allows installer to be put on your phone and you can download apps from there.
