    Default New 3GS - What a bummer

    My 3GS took a dump the other day, so I got it replaced with a new one @ the Apple store yesterday. Yay!
    Old one was stuck on a spinning wheel of death, no boot, power button stopped working, and wouldn't restore.

    It's come to my attention that since it's a 2011 week 49 model, that I'm stuck on 5.16.05 baseband, and it'll brick if I try to update to 6.15bb.

    So If I read everything correct this new phone is useless to me, unless I want to switch to AT&T?
    Guess I'll have to sell it, and buy an older one.

    You can still use a Gevey SIM on this 3GS, from what I understand -- but you're correct that you will be unable to upgrade to the 06.15 baseband as it will brick your phone's baseband chip.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.
