    You will have to jailbreak it first, and then ssh your stuff into your phone.

    Kinda depends on what your into.

    And yeah you can talk about apps, or anything else you want.

    We just dont allow discussion on anything cracked/pirated. As long as its legit, its cool.

    There are 3 types of apps.
    1) App store apps - many are free, most cheap, which have been approved by Apple and sold through the Appstore on your phone and iTunes on your computer

    2) Cydia (and installer and RYI - but I really can't recommend them) apps. These are apps written for the iPhone but which are not approved by Apple. Again, lots are free but some you pay for. These include such things as video recorders, texting replacements and Winterboard for theming. Although customising your phone with themes is popular, I found it slowed down my phone too much so don't bother. Cydia apps have not been tested by Apple so there are potential conflicts but you are fairly safe with apps from Cydia - the same can not be said for installer and RYI.

    3) 'Cracked' apps these are apps that have been modified to work on any jailbroken iPhone illegally.

    Types 1 & 2 can be talked about freely as can jailbraking itself as none of this is illegal.

    Type 3 cannot be talked about as it is illegal and if you brick your phone while doing it then you have no one else to blame than yourself. I strongly recommend supporting the software writers and going the legal route.

    You use a program called Cydia to install apps, themes, wallpapers, ringtones, etc. It's like the mobile iTunes store on your iPod/iPhone.
