    Default Questions before I buy.

    I just recently been researching about iPhones and have a few questions before I go and buy an one. I am pretty new at this and all I know is that I do not want to use AT&T as my service provider.

    1. If I was to get a 1.1.2 OTB, would someone who gets a 1.1.3 OTB be more advanced, as in hacking, jailbroken, unlocked or whatever wise? Basically, should I just wait til firmware 1.1.3 OTB can be fully jailbroken and unlocked and get that, or does it not matter if I get a 1.1.2 OTB?

    2. Should I buy one already unlocked? Or should I jailbreak and unlock on my own? I am not experienced with working with the iPhone, but I can follow instructions very well. But like anything else, I'm sure there will be complications.

    Sorry if this thread is annoying, but better to be safe than sorry. It's a lot of money for an experiment. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am joining up in this question, since I haven't found any clear FAQ on the web about some questions I have. Basicly I would like to buy an iPhone (since my friend is visiting the States), and would like to know is the newest iPhones can be unlocked, so I can decide to buy it or not.

    Thank you.

    P.S. sorry for joining with your post, but it would be stupid to open one more thread.

    answer to question 1

    you can fully unlock the 1.1.3 otb.. i think! you just restore to 1.1.1 then jailbreak and do the hw unlock

    2 no do it yourself since you will know how to do it again if you wana restore your phone
    iPhone 3G - Black [2.2]

    MacBook Black - Windows Vista & leopard [4GB Ram]

    So if I was to purchase a 1.1.3 OTB, all I have to do is downgrade the firmware to 1.1.1, jailbreak and then unlock? This will give me a fully functional iPhone? Basically, I'm trying to figure out my options and try to understand things more clearly. Is purchasing a 1.1.3 version out of the question if I want to unlock it? Would it be wiser to look for a 1.1.2?
