Well that's why iPhone has jailbrake duh? People love the iPhone so much and because you can actually theme it around that experts on the field made up the jailbrake programs. Scroogle Samsung and their 55 inch Lcds phones

hahah...Finally, someone with his head on straight. You can forget about Samsung, because North Korea is about to obliterate them when their nuclear missile that was meant for the U.S. misfires and accidentally flies south, right up the asses of those who think up these cheap plastic phones. Samsung, me no love you longtime. I'll take a BJ, though, while I talk on my iPhone with battery life of more than 2 hours.

I have an iphone and ipad, but lately very disappointed with Apple and if it wasnt for Jailbreak I would seriously consider other brands.
