    I outright bought my iPhone 4 for 600 quid in the UK and now use it in my current O2 contract and my bank have the phone under my account insurance. My question is, is there any damage that can be done to the iPhone if it is jailbroken such as cracks in the software and the phones performance and such?

    If anything does go wrong you can restore it. Nothing should go wrong.

    Well, you will lose your warranty.

    If it came with 4.0 or 4.0.1 visit www.jailbreakme.com from mobile safari and slide the "Slide to Jailbreak." Wait untill it's finished and a message pops up saying "Cydia Has Now Been Added to Home Screen"

    It will most likely shorten your battery life. That's about it though.

    That depends on what he installs AFTER the JB. JB itself won't.

    Wrong, if he restores the device after jailbreaking and before he sent it to apple (or any other repair /insurance related company) if he needed to - they would never know he had jailbroken in the first place, therefore making any warranty still valid.

    Exactly. yet another fail from a noob poster. I've personally done this 4 times with my iPhone 3G and my AppleCare is STILL valid and I've never been charged for a new iPhone.
