I just bought an iPhone from my friend over in the US, I'm in New Zealand, so the obvious thing to do would be to get my iPhone unlocked so i can used it on the Vodafone Network in New Zealand. It's a used iPhone and my friend said he bought it pre-november.
I have taken my iPhone to various places in my area, and they've all told me that it can't be unlocked. But i find that hard to believe because my iPhone is week 40 and as far as i'm aware, from the serial number, it can be downgraded from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1.
Can anyone help me here? Is my iphone unlockable or not? i'm really confused. Because the places i have been to tell me that it isn't (without checking the serial number or anything)
and if it is unlockable, can i follow this guide to unlock it?
Would i have to downgrade to 1.1.1 then downgrade the baseband aswell?
Thanks in advance!! This is really confusing me.
