    Default [Problem] How to figure out if iPhone ever been unlocked?

    I have bought a used iPhone from an auction site that is supposedly never been unlocked. I want to determine if this is true.

    Here is what I found.

    When I turn on the iPhone it has the logo of a plug and the itunes logo and displays following message box

    Insert and unlocked and valid SIM to activate iPhone
    And when I connect the iPhone to the computer iTunes it shows the "Welcome to your New iPhone. Let's get started..." screen.

    Additionally the iPhone in question is a week 45 (serial number 7U745xxxxxx)

    I checked the firmware version by using the emergency keypad *3001#12345#* and it is 04.02.13_G.

    From these observations I believe it is a OTB 1.1.2 phone that hasn't been unlocked, but I'm suspect about the message box asking to insert a unlocked and valid SIM as I mentioned earlier.

    Can anyone use the information above to figure out if it is indeed a new otb 1.1.2 iPhone?

    Any help much appreciated.

    If its 1.1.2 otb, it can't be software unlocked in anyway. Only hardware unlocked. And for that to have happened, it would be bypassing the activation screen right now. Best bet is it hasn't been unlocked. To really check, jailbreak and activate it, then run bbinfo to find the bootloader version. If it's 4.06, probably 99% chance it hasn't been unlocked.

    Is it normal for a otb 1.1.2 phone to show message box asking to insert a unlocked and valid SIM to activate iPhone?

    I'm thinking it could be a 1.1.1 that was upgraded to 1.1.2 accidentally?

    Can someone with a new otb 1.1.2 confirm they get the same "Insert an unlocked and valid SIM to activate iPhone" message when turning on?

    Yes, the locked phones give that message.

    You can unlock and jailbreak it and use it as an ipod, using nothing but software and without damaging your phone in any way.
    This is completely reversible, you can "Virginize" your phone.
    (so could the person you bought it from)
