    Arrow Went to buy an iPhone today :-(

    I went to an apple store to buy an iPhone, asked the guy what firmware was it
    He said 1.1.1
    "We don't keep the old version..."

    I feel he was lying, just to discourage unlocking.
    How do we find out for sure, from the box, what ver the fone is...

    And when the store guy asks; why are you looking for the older version, what excuse do you give...

    the serial number will give u some ideas what the firmware might be
    the serial number goes like this
    7S739XX
    take a look at the numbers in bold, if they are 37 or less, it is 1.0.2.if they are 38, u have a chance of getting 1.1.1. if they are 39 u have a high chance of getting 1.1.1

    Thanks a lot rebornsoul
    This is what I was looking for.

    I'll go there tomorrow and tell them my lucky number is 37 and I want this number to be somewhere on the box, otherwise I'll go to a different store...lol ... just kidding...

    Thanks

    just tell them that you read that the new firmware is faulty and 50% of people buying them are taking them back because they show incorrect sim or get no service. Its not even a lie, heaps of people on att plans got incorrect sim from the new firmware, I think it was a rush job just to get at the hackers and it wasn't tested properley. They just should have waited till the 9 nov when the UK launch happens. But chances are a new 1.1.1 firmware WILL come out close to the 9 Nov because the UK phones have a diffrerent 1.1.1 to us and a different modem firmware! This is all part of JOB's cat and mouse game, trying to discourage hacking by releasing new firmware in quick succession thats hard to jailbreak and activate to try to discourage the hacking community. If we don't break into this firmware by the 9th Nov, then it will start all over again with the UK 1.1.1 version. only promising news sofar is Erica Saunders has got read access to 1.1.1 meaning it shouldn't be long till we get the secpack file and we can workout how to downgrade.

    good luck

    yeah

    JOB's piggies are concentrating more on keeping the phone locked... my 2 cent advice for them - concentrate more on improving the phone otherwise u'll loose the race, once more...
