Default jailbreak smart phone

I know people jailbreak iphones to get free apps. Can you jailbreak an android based phone?

Android phones are not "locked" the way iPhones are. Buying an iApple product means marrying iApple for as long as you have the product. Only iApple uses that business plan.

I think the term you are looking for is "hack" -- a phone is hacked to make it accessible to other networks or bypass the iTunes store.
