    Question [Question] [Solved] Can I upgrade an unlocked iPhone 3G to Firmware 2.1?

    I have just bought an iPhone 3G which appears to be unlocked here in India since I can use Sim card from any carrier without use of any hardware eg. Any Sim / Turbo Sim etc. The phone is already activated and has all the setting usually hidden eg. Cell Data Network etc.. except for the fact that it is not jailbroken.

    Can I upgrade the Firmware from 2.0.1 to 2.1 without locking the phone.

    Is there a way to find out from which country the unlocked iphone was shipped? Or do you think I should be bothered!

    Is there a way to image the phone so that if things don't work out, i can restore the same back to its original unlocked state??

    Please , Please HELP!!!!!

    An unlocked phone stays unlocked, no matter what you do. THat's why you pay the extra price.

    Apple has a section whre you can check the serial number and see what country it is from.

    Hey thanks John,
    I did update to 2.1 and then used QuickPwn to jailbreak it. I worked like a charm.

    But one more problem I have which is related to the AppSupport or caller ID matching. The Caller ID fix available on Installer and Cydia work on my iPhone 2G but when i installed it on my iPhone3G, it does not work.....

    Can you Help????

    As a matter of fact, I'm still waiting for my iPhone 3G I bought on ebay, so I can't help you out with that. Sorry.

    I am using the 3G unlocked by a turbo SIM, so was just wondering; does same work for an iphone unlocked using a turbo SIM? I mean is there any way the SIM won't trick the new Firmware?! Or the unlock does not have to do with the FW?!

    thx

    @KolIphone & at004

    Only (official) factory unlocked iPhones will. Nobody knows if *sim will be working on upcoming fw updates. I'd put some bucks in a "NO" - we'll see

    ok thanks for your answer, i just have one more question, lets say that the iphone has the turbo sim built inside it and on a new firmware it will not work, however there is a software unlock available, will the software unlock work with the turbo sim still inside the iphone 3g?
