    Default Going to buy an iphone from apple today

    hi
    going to buy an iphone today, i understand that it will have firmware 1.1.2
    there also a rumour that its going to be a new firmware release saturday so i thought if i buy it while its still 1.1.2 then atleast i can wait till they crack that rather than waiting until they release the 1.1.3 versions.

    how long roughly would i have to wait for it to be cracked? as there is no way on earth im paying £35 a month!

    My advice is, don't buy.

    If Apple doesn't release an update to the baseband in the next firmware, then you will be waiting for a long long time for an unlock.

    Hello Brobbo,

    You just got some very good advice from a nice person who took the time to write it to you.

    You are a total 'newb' (your words), and you obviously cannot (or will not) take the time to search and read all the pertinent threads on this forum.

    So, please follow his advice: do ... not ... buy ... the ... iPhone ...

    OK, Simple as this. You want to pay £35, then go ahead and buy an iPhone, and be happy.

    You don't? So don't get an iPhone, keep your N95 and be happy.

    People here are not advising the same thread after thread by no reason. NO ONE HERE HAS IDEA HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE TO UNLOCK AN OOB 1.1.2. If you can't wait, can't find an old iPhone or can't get your f*cking mouth shut, so f*ck off and do not get lazy when people DO answer you.

    And have a nice day

    If you want the iPhone for the iTouch functions then keep the cellphone you currently have and buy an iTouch.
    If you don't want the hassle of carrying 2 things( and running out of battery on the one and not having music/videos on the other) buy the iPhone(and run out of battery on one device, completely stranded )

    Anyway there ARE 2 known ways to "unlock" a 1.1.2 OTB with 4.06 bootloader:
    1) Hardware hack. They say its possible, but havent found a guide yet and the technical knowledge required makes it impossible for average joe.So if you're know into cellphone hardware skip this.
    And just to add here, I wouldn't trust anyone to open up my iPhone. Not that its expensive(an iPhone here costs 350 CYP = $800-900 if not more, but I get mine from US) but its hard to get another one here shipped from US(and there might be an update and wait for an unlock again)

    2) There the turbosim(and all other programmable SIM ... "thingies") You program it so the iPhone things your T-mobile or whatever SIM card is an AT&T card and you get all iPhone functionality.

    Now a lot of people are waiting for a software unlock for 2 reasons:
    1) Don't know how to do the hardware unlock or don't want to have it hard unlocked(me here)
    2) Turbosim costs and is out-of-supply. Plus its extra hassle to cut it and program it and ....

    If you REALLY want an iPhone(me here again), then buy one with 1.1.2 and get a Turbosim. There are tutorials on the forums on how to make it work and I'm sure people here will help you out!
