    Default next firmware will re-lock the iphone?

    From what I've read in different places it seems the next iphone update is cause for concern as it would possibly re-lock our iphones.

    The only point I'm not clear on is the following:

    I've had an ipod for a couple of years and in order for it to continue functioning properly with the ipod integration in my car I decided to never update my ipod. Every time I launch itunes and sync my ipod, it asks if i wanna update my ipod and I simply decline.
    Couldn't we do the same with the iphone or is a firmware update happen without asking first and doesn't give you the option to decline?

    go to iTunes Edit/Preferences/General/ unclick "Check for Updats Automatically" When update reminders come Kill Them, you can keep your iPhone running for ever on 7.3.1~~ 1.0.2

    Chill nw, I couldn't understand lizards comment also, hope my answer helps you..

    I don't know if this is the right place either but iPods always ask first before doing a restore or software update i would imagine this wouldn't change as a firmware reflash could potential brick an iPhone if not done correctly i.e. battery dies half way through. So I'm just speculating but I don't think involuntary firmware flashes are likely. More likely than not Apple will intice people to want the newer update with new features like Sony did with the PSP. But again who knows for sure i guess we'll see.

    Thanks JsR...I appreciate that.

    I've only had it unlocked for 2 days and I guess I was a little paranoid this would come to an end soon!! An article I read seem to suggest this could be an issue, but it didn't make any sense...I thought maybe the iphone runs firmware updates in the background regardless of what you do....

    I unchecked "check for updates automatically" .....simple enough...lol

    Thanks again!!!!

    i think next FW versions will kill the ability to be cracked easily. Like encrypted firmwares (as iPod touch) so better we have to learn some unencryptions method and reverse-engineering. Things arent go easy for us in the next months, bro

    a new iPhone is coming (well, that said Mac Store guy) "hey bro, dont buy this.. the iPhone came with so many errors, dont waste your money. Wait to december, a new iPhone came..."
