    Default [1.1.2/1.1.3] UK O2 clarification

    First post. I've checked the FAQ and been reading the boards for a while (got a U.S. 4.6 BL phone that would like a soft unlock one day), but this is a different question. The FAQ has a comment on my question but I just want to make sure!

    I want to get the wife an iphone for valentines day...yes, really. I'd like to avoid the contention with unlocks and just get her an O2 PAYG SIM. Now, my problem is I might end up with a 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 if I just order one. So, I wanted to confirm :

    If I get 1.1.2 OTB, I can downgrade, jailbreak, oktoprep, upgrade, re-break and then use an O2 SIM ? no caveats, no clever stuff ?

    If I get a 1.1.3 I do the same thing as above then use the soft-upgrade to get back to 1.1.3 and I'm ok with an O2 SIM ?

    If this is a repeat of previous ground, apologies and just point me at the appropriate threads.

    Cheers.

    1.1.2 - Yeah O2 PAYG SIM Works perfect including GPRS (With a few mods)

    If you were to get 1.1.3 your pretty much screwed until *someone* patches the lockdownd to work with the new baseband

    *Awaits patiently for patch ;D

    As has been said, you're ok with 1.1.2, but not with 1.1.3.

    As for your chances of getting 1.1.2 - fairly good, depending where you go. I would recommend an O2 store as they have lower traffic volume; I picked up a 1.1.2 phone in Derby around a month ago that, judging from its serial number, was part of their launch day stock. I've heard of people getting 1.1.3 in some places though.

    Check the serial number before you do anything to it (back of the phone). Anything week 50 or below should be safe (43 was launch week IIRC) although the line blurs a little around week 50 onwards, and it could be either. Remember your 14-day cooling off period; if you get 1.1.3, return it for a full refund (if you need an excuse say it's an unwanted present, but legally they should take it back no questions asked) and go to a different store.

    Watch out for the ridiculous data charges on PAYG; accidental use even for a minute will see your credit vanish. I recommend the data bolt-on (7.50).
