7 Terrific Things To Do on Your Jailbroken iPhone

I just read a terrific article on 9 to 5 Mac Apple Intelligence about neat things you can do with your newly jailbroken device which is the inspiration for this post. As you know, Switch Wireless can jailbreak your iOS 6 and 6.1 device for $34.99 starting today.  No appointment is needed and we’ll get it done within two hours.  After you receive your newly jailbroken device, here are some marvelous things to do:

As you know, cellular carriers in certain countries charge extra funds on monthly bills to enable iOS’s personal hotspot feature for sharing your iOS device’s data connection.  TetherMe is a neat app that you can download on your jailbroken iPhone to get past this for a small fee of just 99 cents.…
