    i see no problem..

    why would restoring an unlocked phone make it impossible to unlock again..

    if you restored your firmware via itunes.. you are fine..

    You dont need to unlock it, it should be still unlocked. But you should have to jailbreak and activate... thats all.

    if you use an unlock more than once you risk messing up the firmware a restore will not fix this only reflash manually. You should only ever use the unlocker once as you only get three unlocks and the phone disalows further unlocking

    Are you sure that is right? On conventional phones where you used the established unlock process (enter unlock code) that does happen, but we are not doing that with the iPhone. We are flashing the baseband chip, not just entering an unlock code. If the iPhone has a legitimate unlock process that we have not seen yet, it may operate like that.

    I Did It!!!! After Staying Up All Night And Messing Around With Trying To Restore My Iphone, What Worked Was Copying The "lockdownd" File In Usr/libexec!!!

    After That I Didn't Need To Do Anything!

    Thx Everybody For Your Quick Responses

    Restoring doesn't re-lock your iPhone anyway...
