    Hey fellas...

    I have one situation here..


    I moved in UK few months ago, and i brought my iphone 4s 16 gig with me..

    I tried to unlock it so i could use UK networks, but i cant since its from Croatia blah blah..
    Tried to do it at few unlocking stores and they said they cant unlock my network..

    So im thinking about to jailbreak it...because i want to use it here..

    What do you think and what would you suggest me to use to jailbreak it..
    its 6.1.3. IOS


    Cheers :)

    Yes, you should jailbreak that, seem like no other way as you can't unlock it.

    You must jailbreak it. There is no reason for not jailbreaking your phone.

    I am not quite sure about iphone. But I had a american samsung galaxy which was locked for only one provider. Now, I definitely wasn't going to buy a new one just because I was travelling to other country. Went online, googled tutorials. Jailbreaked the fucked out of it. Never had any problem whatsoever...Not a bit. Been 2 years now.

    I am guessing you wont have any problem either. But your warranty will go poof I think.

    You can't jailbreak 6.1.3. There's no working jailbreak for that version.

    I'm not sure if we will lose our data, contacts, pics etc. But you can backup all the things on icloud. I have uploaded everything there.

    I've been searching for weeks and haven't found a solution. On all the major phone forums they're saying there's no jailbreak, and most people are waiting for iOS 7 to create the next jailbreak.

    You can't jailbreak 6.1.3 iOS. I work with iPhones so I know that. You can perform "tethered" jailbreak which means that WHENEVER you turn off the phone or your battery runs out, you will HAVE to CONNECT your phone to your computer to boot it - which is shit.

    If you have more questions about iPhones/jailbreaking/unlocking/modding, you can PM me and I'll help you. :)

    You want to download all your stuff onto your computer first because you will probably wipe the phone.

    Its years since I broke a phone but you want to google "I phone Jailbreak cydia" thats the guy who is responsible for all the latest jailbreaks.

    And btw. jailbreaking will not SIM-unlock your phone. Google "iPhone factory unlock" and try to find a proper unlock for it. Jailbreak only allows you to run cracked applications on your phone, and it also gives you Cydia which has some cool tweaks and apps.
