    Default Going to USA this week, buy or not to buy an iphone ootb 1.1.2

    Hi, Im going to the USA this week Im from Mexico, do you recommend me to buy 1 or 2 OOTB 1.1.2 iphones, and wait until the software unlock is released? for me is not problem at all to wait 2 or 3 weeks for the software unlock, or do you think it could take months to have a software unlock for the 1.1.2? Thanks

    BUY! You could always get lucky and get one with 1.1.1 or 1.0.2. Try to go to an Apple store and ask for refurbished iphones. You have to ask a rep since they like to hide them in the back. Also try going to at&t or Best Buy and look around for some older iphones with the older firmware. You are bound to get lucky, that's how I did.

    For a new/refurbish set, look at the serial number, the 4th and 5th number is the production week, anything less that 41 should be safe.

    Which stores other than Apple and AT&T sell iphones and let you see the box before buying it? (without asking annoying questions? :p)

    Waiting until the software unlock is released very probably means waiting until firmware 1.1.3 if I'm not mistaken.

    But if you buy when 1.1.3 is out, chances are you'll get a 1.1.3 phone, which maybe won't get unlocked until 1.1.4 is out.

    So, just imho, get them BEFORE the unlock it out to be sure to get at worst 1.1.2 and not 1.1.3 ones.

    I'll get my phone on Friday from London, so it'll have FW 1.1.2 on it.
    Can't I just downgrade to 1.1.1 and then use this FW instead (there's so much talking about downgrading on the net, that I'm now pretty confused about all that...)?
    I believe anySim on 1.1.1 should work well, doesn't it?

    here's a trick, i have 2 iphones one is otb 1.1.1 and the other otb 1.1.2
    i noticed smthng, the 1.1.2 box has an extra icon on the outiside (u know the graphic of an iphone menu on the black box), on the 1.1.1 there are only 12 icons, in the 1.1.2 there are 13, (extra purple iTunes icon).. i guess this could help you identify the difference when u're at the store.
    though it might be a co-insidence, but this my case, and it could be wrong and is not a general case..

    buy it if you want it. Also, there isn't any way of knowing for sure the firmware version until you open the box. The serial MIGHT help but it's not a guaranty... recently several week 40-to-44 came with the new BL/firmware.
