    Question iPhone buyed today in US still unlockable ?

    Hello,

    I'm from belgium and my brother is going to Los Angeles this week.
    Can I ask him to buy an iPhone and will it be unlockable and freely used on Belgium networks ?

    If there are some required version or whatever could you explain me ?

    Thank you very much,

    Littlebens

    u must b kidding... The answer is NOT RECOMENDED. Iphones otb (out of the box) since november still cant be unlocked, but there is always the future posibilities. You can buy one now and jailbreak it to use as itouch with lots of bugs and wait sometime to have an unlock solution but since you are in belgium i woul recomend having one from france they are all unlocked
    3.0 :iPhone: unlocked (BL 3.9)
    3.0.1 :iPhone: Telcel 4.4 w/Tethering/MMS/VVM
    Mexico

    Want to enable Tethering on TELCEL MEX?: http://iph0ned.blogspot.com/

    The problem with France is that you must get a subscription for two year or you can buy one for 750 unlocked. In US, it is 400$ then 270.

    I'll buy it, use it as a itouch and way for a genious guy to crack it !

    and i believe with some mucking around, you can HW unlock it.. someone correct me if i'm wrong.

    you'd downgrade it to 1.1.2 (works as an itouch)
    jailbreak 1.1.2
    then perform HW unlock which changes the BL back to 3.9

    What do you want to say by "HW unlock it" ? Hardware unlock it ? How to do that ?

    Does the bootloader 4.6 can be erased with the 3.9 ?

    Wrong.

    To downgrade the bootloader, you need the 1.1.4 secpack (if you're on 1.1.3).

    Littlebens: if you buy an 1.1.2 OTB, then YES you can Hardware unlock it. If you buy an 1.1.3 OTB, then NO you cannot Hardware unlock it yet.

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.
