    Hello and welcome. You say you're from Santa Monica - my aunt lives there. Anyway, congratulations on your acquisition of the iPhone 3G - enjoy it. Jailbreaking your device modifies the software so that you have the ability to install unsanctioned 3rd party applications. the AppStore really makes jailbreaking unnecessary in my opinion, but others will not agree. It is, unfortunately possible to install "free" or cracked applications. Do not discuss it on this site or else you could be banned. I can't keep you from installing these illegal cracks, but keep in mind developers worked long hours to make those applications and they deserve to be paid for their work.

    Welcome to iPod touch Fans! I'm a Joseph as well and there's another moderator with the actual username Joseph too.

    You can jailbreak your iPhone 3G by using the program QuickPwn.

    I made a guide on jailbreaking your iPod touch with QuickPwn here, but it's almost the same for you but you'll choose iPhone 3G instead.

    You should definitely get OpenSSH, WinterBoard and mxTube. I'm jailbroken but barely use it so I'm not sure if MxTube is for Firmware 2.2.

    Well since everybody explained everything to you already... Here is what I shall tell you.

    Don't register your iPod don't ask just do.

    If you get it wet. Don't turn it on. If it's on your kind of screwed so turn it off.

    Contrary to popular belief Jailbreaking Is NOT Illegal.

    And people will explain more if need be.

    Welcome and Enjoy The iPhone Killer! the 3G!
    Hey that kind of sounded like a commercial.
