How could you tell what unlock method was used on your iPhone?
Probably like a lot of people, I bought my iPhone off of ebay pre-unlocked with 1.0.2. So I don't really know what method was used to unlock, but as all the talk about AnySim 1.1 and messed up NVRAM's, and virginizing are becoming more popular, I figure at some point people are going to need to know which method was used to know which method to use to repair and re-unlock???
So, how does one tell??
In my own case, the only thing installed on the device when I got it was OpenSSH, and the BSD subsystem, so I think the person used something like one of the earlier command line unlocks, but I really am guessing?
Or, do people believe the dev groups baseband repair will take care of all of it for you/me?
You gotta go into terminal, shut down the commcenter and open minicom selecting tty.baseband as the device.
Type AT+XSIMSTATE=1 [hit enter]
You may get the following answers (given you have a non-ATT SIM card inserted):
iPhone is not Unlocked = +XLOCK: "PN",1,1,"PU", (...)
Unlocked with the NEW anySIM 1.1 = +XLOCK: "PN",1,0,"PU", (...)
iPhone is Unlocked w/ IPSF = +XLOCK: "PN",5,0,"PU", (...)
iPhone is Unlocked w/ iUnlock, anySIM 1.0.2, Unlock.app etc. = +XLOCK: "PN",4,0,"PU", (...)
(be careful, do not upgrade if this is your case)
Upgraded iPhone previously Unlocked w/ anySIM 1.0.2 and friends (IMEI messed up case) = +XLOCK: "PN",2,4,"PU", (...)

If you get 2,4 are you saying that is someone that had an unlocked 1.0.2, upgraded to 1.1.1 and is now locked out on radio?
