People jailbreak their iPhones, such as iPhone 4s, due to the restrictions set by Apple and the limited offerings on Apple App Store. In fact, because of these restrictions, you can cannot customize your phone’s ringtones or change how the icons look. The App Store does not offer applications that allow you to do such things. However, there are third-party apps that can do exactly what you want with your iDevice.
Jailbreak iPhone 4s to unlock it
iPhone 4s users jailbreak their iDevice not only to get those third-party apps, but also to unlock it. Unlocking your iPhone 4s is not synonymous with an iPhone 4s jailbreak. Unlocking an iPhone means breaking the SIM card’s lock code so it will work with different carriers. Prior to unlocking your iPhone, it can only work with the carrier that has been approved by Apple.
Major iPhone carriers
Initially, there was only one iPhone carrier in the United States — AT&T. Eventually, several options were made available and now iPhone users can choose from different carriers.
l AT&T is one of the major carriers that offer the iPhone. Its overall speeds are faster than Verizon. AT&T claims to be the most dependable wireless network in the country.
l Verizon is the one with the farthest reach among the major iPhone carriers. This wireless network is present almost everywhere.
l T-Mobile’s 4G LTE is remarkable as well and the company is working on expanding its 4G LTE offerings.
l Sprint, another carrier, concentrates on improving the quality of its 3G network.
Chances are you bought your iPhone 4s from one of the above mentioned major iPhone carriers. If by any chance you are not satisfied with the network performance, you can jailbreak your iPhone so that you can unlock it. Then you can switch to the carrier you want.
