Will using WinPwn and not upgrading the baseband result in continued problems?
I purchased an iPhone 3G and am using AT&T in the US. Unfortunately I updated my phone from 2.0 to 2.0.1 without using WinPwn, so I may have issues with unlocking. From my understanding, by using WinPwn and a customized firmware file, the baseband will not be upgraded. My question is - can some of the 3G connection issues be fixed in the baseband upgrade? If so, if we use WinPwn and do not upgrade the baseband, we will continue to have 3G connection issues. I am using firmware 2.0.1 and am waiting for WinPwn 2.5 so that I can upgrade my phone to firmware 2.0.2. But I am wondering if by not upgrading the baseband I am not fully installing fixes that would improve my 3G connection. Would somebody who has more knowledge as to what functions are contained in the baseband share his/her thoughts? Does the baseband contain call and data connection functionality or is it used solely to provide information as to the status of the phone (with respect to activation and lock/unlock status)? Although I would like to have an unlocked phone, I would rather have one that does not have connection issues at this time. I can also try to purchase an unlocked phone from Italy. It's too bad that there is this idiotic lock restriction in the US! Thank you for any input.
