    how did you do that? did you ask for a 2.1 iPhone? wouldn't they ask why? so what kind of plausible reason did you give them?

    My neighbor down here in Florida just bought an iphone and his had 2.1 and 2.11.07 baseband.... but he wanted to buy this certain game in the app store and itunies told him that his iphone was not compatible with it so he was forced to upgrade.....

    He is not one that will ever mod his iphone but thought I would let you know what he had to do...... so it looks like if you don't upgrade you will not be able to install certain apps.....

    if you use the pwnage tool to create a custom 2.2 and restore to that your baseband doesnt get updated.

    im at 2.2 firmware with 2.0 baseband right now

    The vibrator on my 3G died over the weekend and I was terrified to take it in to apple knowing they'd replace the phone - which they did. But the 16GB Black replacement 3G iphone they gave me is 2.0.2 firmware. Woo Hoo! So I'm back in business. I have an AT&T contract for here in the USA - but I travel a lot overseas and much prefer to use local SIM's for the couple of weeks I spend every couple months abroad.

    Kudo's to the Dev team!

    Ok, so best as I can tell this is a question not yet posted, though I'm sure to be wrong . Having faithfully updated via Pwnage since receiving my 3G iphone my baseband is 2.08.01. yellowsn0w will work on basebands through 2.11.07 which is the baseband update which came with the software 2.1 update (please correct me here if I'm wrong).

    So the question I'm asking myself is, "is there a significant difference between baseband 2.08 and 2.11"? In other words, is it worth running a standard update of software 2.1 via iTunes so that the baseband is at the 2.11.07 and then running pwnage for 2.2? Or are the improvements between those two basebands so marginal as to barely even warrant the energy it took to type this question?

    baseband updates mean nothing. just a way of apple cracking down on unlocking.

    I was talking to AT&T on the chat as I was thinking about buying a refurbished Iphone from their site:

    Daniel: I have found a deal for the iphone at $99 refurbished but I cannot select that phone in the premier store

    Salina: That phone may not be available through that site.

    Daniel: well, i would like that phone

    Salina: Are you a new or an existing customer with AT&T?

    Daniel: new

    Salina: You can just order that refurbished iPhone outside of the Premier site and then call customer care to have them apply your discount after you purchase.

    Daniel: why so difficult

    Salina: I do apologize, but this is how it would have to be purchased here online.

    Salina: Would you like to go ahead and build your cart with that refurbished iPhone?

    Daniel: i am doing so. i don't like how much the rate plans are

    Salina: Let me know when you have that added to your cart.

    Daniel: i have. $104.99 is $30 more a month than what I pay now to use the same phone

    Salina: You currently have the iPhone?

    Daniel: correct

    Daniel: i would like the 3g and visual voicemail but it is not worth $30 a month extra

    Salina: That $30 per month does give you unlimited Internet and email access.

    Daniel: got it

    Daniel: for $5.99

    Salina: I do apologize, but our data plan is $30 per month.

    Daniel: is there any way to get the monthly bill lower?

    Daniel: without sacrificing messaging and minutes

    Salina: You can always call our customer care department to see if they can further assist you with that.

    Salina: Here online we do not have the power to override the system.

    Salina: That is the price of our data plan for the iPhone. The iPhone has to have the data plan in order to work properly.

    Daniel: then i will just wait until january 1st when the 3g is unlocked

    Salina: Is there anything else I can assist you with today?

    Daniel: pwned

    That's completely untrue. Apple went from 2.0 > 2.0.1 > 2.0.2 > 2.1 in record time to try and fix the horrible 3G reception issues. These baseband changes had drastic effects on the device modem communication.

    not denying that's true, but im at 2.0 baseband but 2.2 firmware and my reception issues have improved though the firmwares the same way any regular person that's updated has?

    i didnt think the baseband really meant anything, you got any links?

    man, well i'd like to say. i've made a full circle back to the iphone. -- i had the 2g iphone for the last year in a half. got tired of it. wanted to test the water for something newer. I bought a nokia luna. hated it. then bought me the new G1. android is quite interesting. but then i quickly was turned off by the G1 cause of it's battery life and lagginess of the UI. and now im back at it with a new 3G iphone. i can't wait for yellowsnow!!!!!!!!!!!
