11-13-2007, 05:43 PM #1will doing a restore re lock my phone?
i have been trying to get a definitive answer on this, maybe you can help.
i have a unlocked 1.1.1 iphone , jailbroken with 3rd party apps on it...
if I do a 1.1.1. restore through itunes will my phone be re locked?
what state exactly will my phone be in after i restore?
do i have to re activate? jail break?
anyone that can answer my questions would be greatly appreciated!

Which part of "restore to original state" eludes you?
Yes, you'll have to re-do everything.

so the unlock does not survive the restore?
thanks for the sarcasm too

Actually, I'm pretty sure the unlock will still survive the restore because it is stored in the baseband. Everything else will be set back to default and your phone is re-jailed.

i already did this....
If you have a 1.1.1 that used anysim 1.1, you will have to re-actvate,
but not unlock. If you used any other unlocking method - I can not advise you,
I remember reading something (i forget what and where!) about it not working if you used an older anysim, or another method - but I can't confirm.
re-activating is really easy now (using jailbreakme.com), so if you want to restore,
go ahead - make sure everything is backed up/synced (ical,address book,notes, etc)
you WILL lose all your data and apps, but again - it's so easy now to install!
**just remember to d/l the 1.1.1 firmware, and hit option-restore when you are doing it, as 1.1.2 has now been released and should be the default restore in itunes now..

Did you have a chance to try your restore by any chance? I had the same questionas you and would like to restore my unlocked 1.1.1 but do not want it to relock etc etc
Any feedback appreciated

Hi, i have gotten my iphone few days ago, an unlocked version of fw 1.1.1
I restored it to fw 1.1.1 after messing around with it.
So as usual, i follow the jailbreak.com method to activate and jailbreak it.
The phone can be used right away without having to unlock again.
However i still tried to run anySIM 1.1 <--- but fail. but the phone is still unlocked.
I was quite puzzle why i dun have to unlock it and it can be use, till i saw this thread.
So i believe, if the iphone was unlocked b4, after u restored it back to the same fw version, you wont need to unlock again.

I have restored many times my Iphone 1.1..1 unlocked with anysim and you don't have to re-unlock it. You just have use jailbreakme.com. So don't listen to the sarcy idiot earlier they don't know everything on this site!!!
