    Default [Theoretical] OTB 1.1.1 activated/jailbroken; want to go legit with 1.1.3 and AT&T

    As the title say I have a theortical question. I presently have an American OTB 1.1.1 jailbroken and activated with jailbreakme.com and activated with anysim downloaded through installer. I am live in Germany but moving back to the states in about 10 days. I am going to sign up with AT&T when I get back by doing a quick restore and activating through iTunes. However, with the release of 1.1.3 soon I am wondering about comlete virginize route and having a legit iPhone. My question is will I have to virginize and if so would it be safe to do it now or wait till the dev team and other experts have more info. My nightmare scenario is to sign up with AT&T with my above technique of just a restore and then when I try to update 1.1.3 I brick it so bad that I have a touch but still paying on the contract. Thoughts?

    sorry if my post is not clear. I have unactivated AT&T sim sitting in the box. I got the phone in early November, then I jailbroke and activated as described above and put my vodafone Germany chip in it. Now that I am going back (to D.C.) I am going to activate with AT&T because I have family using AT&T. My question is if I want to go to 1.1.3 when its released will I have virginize the baseband before upgrading the firmware. Thanks for th replies. I know that all the new features described with 1.1.3 i can get with 3rd party software, I am just wondering....

    You'll have to virginize it before, but you must consider that it will update your phone and if one day you decide to quit AT&T, you won't be able to drowngrade/soft unlock it later.

    If you have an OTB 1.1.1 phone, then I'd recommend selling it to someone who wants to have a BL 3.9 phone and getting yourself a brand new iPhone which will be OTB 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 (if you go legit, then who cares which it is) and you could easily make money from the transaction and would never have to worry about compatibility issues.

    Though you'd also give away a BL3.9 phone so if you decide to leave the states again you can't reunlock it .... otherwise you could downgrade back to 1.1.1 or below, virginize and unlock, but not with a BL4.6 phone, though one never knows what's available then with regard to unlocking software

    If he has a BL3.9 phone (which a OTB 1.1.1 should be), then why shouldn't he be able to downgrade and soft unlock it?

    thanks everyone for the info. Think I am going to wait until 1.1.3 comes out and see if there any must have features and then decide. If I do decide to sell it I will put it in the for sale area. Thanks again.
