    Default 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?

    Hi

    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", (...)

    Thanks very much for the info/reply.

    I unfortunately do get "PN",4,0,"PU" the bad one I guess. Good to know though, thanks again.

    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?
