    Default [iPhone 3G] - What firmware currently on 8gb phones in UK

    subject says it all, i've looked through the forums, and can't specifically find anything that helps me out..

    i'm hoping to buy an 8gb payg phone specifically for unlocking, so, i'm hoping they are on a low enough firmware, so does anyone have a clue, if i were to go into an apple store or an o2 store, what firmware they are on?

    *edit* or 16gb white ones, i think for the 50 more i'll go with one of them!

    Cheers

    right not to put a downer on things for ya but word was that apple had instructed carphonewarehouse and o2 stores to upgrade firmware on all back stock iphones, regardless on contract or payg. perhaps someone could confirm this?
    i know people who work for cpw really well and its funny how lax they are bout these types of things so i definatly reckon you try your luck in a cpw store rather than o2.
    personal experience has tuaght me o2 stores are full of people who pretend to know loads and once when i was to buy a iphone they said all purchases have to be done by credit card! so they have a record of who brought them !

    Thanks for that.. after posting my post, i rooted around a bit more, and found that people were saying that, it's ok though.. my sister has a 2 month old iPhone 3G 16gb White, that still is on an older version.

    so the plan is now, buy a 16gb white, and then back up my sisters phone, transfer everything to her the new handset, and then unlock, the 2 month old one... yay!!!

    so it really doesn't matter you see..
