    unlock is possible. Just cant jailbreak it if it has the new bootloader and already running IOS4 without a backup of your SHSH Blobs. You have to jailbreak to to run Ultrasn0w to unlock the carrier.

    The answer was that the modem firmware that is new is unlockable.

    Actually, the answer would be either the devs haven't figured out how to make the phone accept an older baseband, or it's just not possible.

    Lololol. It is amazing! I guess if we wanted to be cut and dry and let the original poster be clueless we could say that as the only answer! He also stated this "i wanted to buy a 32g 3gs until the iphone 4 becomes unlockable but everyone got the new firmware in which you cant unlock". Did you happen to put his question together with that last sentence and realize he thinks the baseband is not hackable? Then did you look at my answer after that were I replied that I is the actual IOS4 firmware that isn't jailbroken yet not the baseband? Good luck

    ***also if it mattered, why would you even want to downgrade the modem firmware if it isn't jailbroken? If I was misunderstanding the original post please answer that one?

    LOL the reason i asked the question was because you know how people have the new firmware on 3gs and they cant jailbreak or unlock i was wondering why couldnt you downgrade the firmware thats all...like how people could downgrade 5.11.07 back to 4.26.08 why couldnt they do it for people thats waiting for the jailbreak on the 3gs
