    Default Ordered a TurboSIM... What should I do?

    Well I feel like a dummy right about now, a few weeks back before the iPhoneSIMFree came out I ordered a TurboSIM off of eBay, spent around $400.00 for it. I wasn't sure if the iPhoneSIMFree would be legit so that is why I ordered it.

    Now that my iPhone is software unlocked, I am going to be ending up getting this TurboSIM today in the mail. What do you think? Do you think I should hold on to it or try to sell it again? Would anyone even buy it?

    I know as long as I don't update my iPhone it should remain unlocked, however if I want any new features such as the Wi-Fi Music Store and we find out that they relock all of our phones, then we're pretty hosed? Should I keep my TurboSIM in a safe place?

    Thanks.

    definitely keep it for when the new firmware come out and all our sw lock is useless.. at least you will still be able to use the phone with new firmware

    Definitely keep it, we know a baseband update will re-lock a SW or HW unlocked phone.

    Unless Apple specifically targets TurbSIM, that will continue to work.

    Now it might be possible to simply SW unlock again after a baseband update but if not, the TurboSIM will be in high demand again for a certain period of time.

    The UK phone launch is immenant, the first people to try unlock these with a new firmware in it are likely to brick their phones. There may well be a surge in TurboSIM requirements again!
