    Default Advise for New iPhone

    I'm a Canadian planning on picking up an iPhone next week when I'm in NYC.

    I'm already on Rogers (who apparently will eventually get the iPhone in Canada), but since they can't get off their collective @sses and make any announcement I'm forced to unlock one.

    As for unlocking, my understanding is I should do a nordump to backup my phone before I unlock to so I can restore it to Factory at a later time just incase.

    I really don't want to end up with an iBrick, so I guess I'll be watching this I'll be watching development closely. To be sure once I get my phone I'll be downloading to the cause as apple is beginning to piss me off.

    Good luck on the new Firmware

    just be careful what fw is on the iphone when you pick it up next week. if its still 1.0.0 - 1.0.2 you may use the current hacks. if its already 1.1.1 you'll probably have to wait for the team getting jailbreak done and activation.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm in Toronto and my friend is shipping the iphone to me from San Diego. Is there anyway I can check the firmware on the iphone before performing the unlock, and without activation?

    If it does come as 1.1.1, is it advisable to dump 1.0.2 into it and perform the unlock?

    At the "Activate iPhone" screen use the "slide for emergency" slider to access the iPhone keypad. Enter *3001#12345#* then press the "Call" button. It should be version 03.14.08_G. That's it!

    I'm sorry for sarcasm but you have to buy smthg else if you not shure you need smthg from iphone.
    People from your country already using iPhones and very happy. And I pretty shure Apple can do alot of smthng but nobody know what is this smthg will be.
    For now if you like the iPhone - than buy and be happy!!!
