Someone's selling a bricked phone on eBay, used to be a US 1.1.1 fully unlocked, but that got bricked and now is described as this:

"This iPhone was fully UNLOCKED until upgrade to firmware 1.1.2 (Now the iphone is stuck in Restore mode) After the upgrade via oktoprep,it was fine but i did not know how to activate the phone calling features again.So i downgraded back to 1.1.1 and now it is stuck with the white connection usb cable on the screen..and don't seem to have any luck unlocking. so that's why I'm selling."

I'm thinking of buying this. Will it be possible to restore it and keep it unlocked? Quick reply appreciated, it might get snapped up by someone else soon. Thanks!
