    What exactly is jailbreaking? someone offered to do this for me for$45 but I don't know exactly what it does. Is this something I can do myself at home? Or do I need computer knowledge beyond the simple stuff?

    Or should I just leave it alone? I just got my iphone and love it.

    Jailbreaking enables you to customize, and add 3rd party apps to your ipod/iphone. It can be done for free at home in only a few min.
    Don't pay for it.
    First, what type of device do you have? iphone 3g?

    Its very simple and involves very little effort. Read some Quickpwn guides. It literally almost only consists of pressing a button.

    It worked but now I can't use my phone to make calls. It won't let you hang up or touch the keypad/numberpad.

    Ideas?
