    Default Pwnage 2.0 + international travel

    Hello Folks,

    I have a quick question for you all, which I am sure is very simple. I have been scouring the forums daily ever since the new Pwnage tool was released, hoping to piece together an answer but I'm still in the dark on a few things... so here goes:

    I am an ATT customer in the US with a normal iPhone (not the 3G).
    I am running the most recent legit firmware.
    I have never cracked, hacked, jailbroken...etc my phone.

    I am travelling to Europe in a couple days, and would like to be able to use my phone there. So I am thinking that the Pwnage tool is my best bet.

    So if I run it on my iPhone, will I be able to use any Sim card that is GSM compatible that I purchase in Europe?

    Then, when I return to the states, I plan on returning my phone back to its normal legit state... So can I just hit restore in iTunes, and then be back to normal?

    I appreciate any help you can offer me -
    Thanks!

    Pretty much yes to everything. Only thing is you'd have to reuse the pwn tool to relock the phone or do a DFU restore. But it doesn't hurt to leave it unlocked. I'm a legit ATT customer and I had mine unlocked since day 1 pretty much. And by the time you get back you'll be able to get some more cydia/installer goodness.

    Oh, also, if you're travelling to countries where the iphone has not been introduced or the carrier you choose is not one of the iphone supported ones, you might have to do some appsupport editing to get it to work properly. Check the appsupport thread in this subforum.

    Thanks wlp5,

    I got it unlocked and jailbroken. Now if I only had a tmobile or verizon sim to test it before I leave....

    Anyways, I would love to keep it unlocked when I return, but what worries me is

    What happens when apple releases an update via iTunes? I can't just click update can I? With my baseband unlocked (or however the lingo goes), won't my phone get bricked?

    Thanks for the previous help though -- you gave me the courage to follow through and it worked flawlessly.

    If an update comes you can either wait it out to upgrade and keep it unlocked or you can upgrade the regular way and it will get relocked again, so no problem for you either way.

    When an update comes out your phone will opnce again be carrier locked. But what do you care, you're a legit user.
