    It's increadibly simple, if you know how to jailbrake and unlock a 1.1.2...

    What will happen is this: If you connect to iTunes, and want to upgrade, do so, but the phone will be LOCKED again!

    You CAN NOT go around this, if you want to upgrade your firmware, it will get locked again, there's no escaping that, so you'll have to activate it and unlock it again

    activating by jailbraking ( there's a thread somewhere here with detailled info on how to do that, and then you have to use anysim 1.2.1 u to unlock it again ( to be able to use it as a phone, and not just as some iPod Touch.. )

    if you still dont know what to do, post your question in details, step by step.
    i'm not going to explain to you how to jailbrake/unlock it, there are enough tutorials here.

    good luck

    Using a AT&T simcard doesn't change anything, it doesn't affect anything !

    so indeed, the phone will be locked again, and no, you will have to jailbrake and unlock it to make it work...

    it's perfectly fine to use the most recent version of iTunes.

    It won't brick... it'll just get locked again... it might get bricked if you use the wrong anysim (or that's what i've read... ) , so just follow the tutorials step by step so you don't make any mistakes

    so would u suggest i just upgrade and then jailbreak and unlock>? would that be easier than to virginize the phone and just upgrade then?


    ps...u keep saying the phone will be "locked" do u mean that in the same sense as like...my phone is unlocked for use on any gsm carrier so locked meaning only use on att>? or locked like the phone becomes unusable

    I would suggest just upgrading to 1.1.1 and using anysim

    By locked, I actually mean both NOTactivated as simlocked ( activating = jailbrake, unlocking = anysim )
    after the upgrade, you won't be able to use it at all, unless you jailbrake and unlock it. that's what I mean.

    okkk. thank you so much for clearing that up for me. I was going to virginize then re activate and upgrade. someone also mentioned possibly trading it for one of the newer FW models since he suggested many might be interested in that. i might try that. thanks.
