    Sure. Turn on your brain and deny the update when iTunes asks for it.

    And while you're at it (turning on your brain), check out the superduper SEARCH function of this forum and try to use your eyes to read related threads/posts. Thank you.

    Simple: don't connect the iPhone to iTunes. Where's the problem?!
    Of course you could mod a file here and there to disable an update but this
    doesn't make any sense because when you need to do a restore/recovery, you
    may be in trouble.

    There is no forced update of the FW, so just deny any update offer from iTunes
    or simply never connect your iPhone to iTunes.

    I'm asking about it, because I'm going to make a gift(iPhone) to my sister. She is using different PC's at home/office/travelling and iTunes too. It will be bad surprise, if cassualy she update his iPhone

    Maybe it's possible to make some app that allows/denies updates (for example, Settings>General>Update..)

    P.S. sorry for my bad english

    Don't worry about your English, I understand you very well.

    You could modify iTunes on each computer she uses, there is a short instruction available in the forum how to "disable" the iTunes update server(s) in iTunes. I don't know if this has any effect on iTunes shop usage (buying, activating, etc.).

    Another approach maybe would be to mod one of the related .plist files but I've never done this, just look for it in the forum, there have been TONS of discussions regarding iTunes and update connectivity.

    My opinion is: talk to your sister and tell her to be careful NOT to update. iTunes doesn't update the FW automatically, she needs to confirm the update and it needs to be downloaded to the computer first before the update can start, here's another chance to abort it if you accidentally activated it.

    If the iPhone connects to iTunes and if iTunes connects to the internet and you need to use iTunes for buying stuff, you (or your sister) just needs to be careful.
    I'm pretty sure that maybe somebody here in the forum could come up with a more sophisticated method but as soon as the 1.1.1 unlock is available, you may be in trouble since you need to reverse the steps you've taken to disable the update.
