    Default Buying an iPhone

    I think I'm going to get enough money to finally buy one next week. But I have a question - if I buy it on like wednesday, will it have 1.1.1 or 1.0.2? Is there any way to tell by looking at the box? And if I have to open the box and turn it on to see the version (and if it has 1.1.1), can I return it and get a full refund?

    I have more or less the same doubt...
    Next week a friend of mine will go to NY and he will buy me a iPhone at Apple Store so i am asking me if i will get a 1.1.1 version or 1.0.2.... ?
    I know if i get a new FW version (unofrtunally) i can downgrade to 1.0.2 but i can`t downgrade the "all" i mean i can use it like an iPod Touch but No Phone aviaible at the moment...

    ok this is the catch,

    u can look at the Serial Number on the box, i bought 3 from santa monica apple shop, on 28th and there were ALL week 37, and hence 1.0.2. so i assume week 37 and below will definitely not be 1.1.1 whereas week 38 has BOTH 1.0.2 AND 1.1.1 and there were alot of cases where week 39's were 1.1.1. so take a look at the serial number, i recommend u to get it faster because we dont know when all the preinstalled 1.1.1 will storm in on all shops

    after u open the box, NO u cant get a full refund, u will only get 90% back, 10% will be absorbed by apple.

    Dude, it doesnt matter anymore!

    If you have 1.0.2, follow the usual methods and you'll activate it and unlock it!
    If you have 1.1.1, the downgrading method enables BRAND NEW 1.1.1 phones to call!

    So either way, you'll get a fully functional iPhone!

    (i got this info from an answer to my thread http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=9073 and by reading at other places)

    But I need an unlocked iPhone. If I downgrade to 1.0.2 I'll be able to use the apps and that stuff, but I won't be able to unlock the phone. Right?
