    why would 3.0 GM brick anyones phone when it was released for the developers to do some additional testing. i doubt apple would want to brick developers iphones. nice scare tactic though. it got me thinking LOL by the way anyone still having problems with visual voicemail should just do a network setting reset. i did that and all was well for me at least.

    who the hell spread this rumor that you cant downgrade? i restored to 3.0 on accident, need to update. so i restored back to 2.2.1, unlocked it then i upgraded to 3.0. so i cant see why u wont be able to go back down after doing an update. it worked fine after i did a restore to 3.0.

    Thanks for the input. I don't have any mods left over since I gave up jailbreaking some months ago (just decided I preferred the speed and no hassle of stock firmware). On the other hand, it has been ages since I did a restore (since I'm not tinkering around anymore), so it probably couldn't hurt either.

    Does anyone else have a thought on this question?

    Sometimes i restore and set up iphone as new instead of from back up. seems to get rid of all traces of mods and gives you a real fresh start.

    I restored and set mine up as a new phone and then set up all my sync settings again and it's been great!

    First I updated and it was good but not great.
    Then I tried restoring and then using a back-up to restore, it was faster.
    Then I completely restored and set up as a brand new phone...It runs so fast now and there is 0 bugs that I've found.

    Did the 3.0 GM update to my unlocked iphone 2g, everything seems to work except for edge on Tmobile. It says (could not activate cellular data network: You are not subscribed to a cellular data service) I put in the old settings. Is there new settings for the 3.0?

    I also downgraded last night without problems.
    I got 3.0GM 2G and installed it then tried to jailbreak using 3.0B5 version of quickpwn and it didnt work so I put it in DFU mode and restored 2.2.1 and jailbreaked it without any problems.

    I have a notebook with itunes 8.1 and my PC with itunes 8.2 so I will always have a way to downgrade/upgrade and jailbreak.

    I might dualboot this PC with Windows and hackintoch just in case I need a mac to jailbreak 3.0

    Ok, so let me see if I have this straight? If I buy the new 3gs iphone that is coming out June 19th, will I be able to unlock it and jailbreak it? I am with t-mobile, and I'm not sure what I did to my iphone, maybe dropped it, (again) but, I messed up the screen a tiny bit on the bottom corner, maybe the pixels or something, but, it looks like a tiny little blank spot, in the same place. Anyway, it seems to have ran a little bit, and not affecting the phone in any way, but, it's just annoying me, and I have the iphone that first came out, so been wanting a new one anyways. Just wanna make sure I can unlock it and jailbreak it if I get one, if not, well it won't be any good to me!
    Stay Sexy, Sweet, and Wonderful!

    GMail does support push email? Both as a standard mail account under IMAP and as an exchange account?

    Someone is also getting the unsupported SIM error with an O2 sim card, which is massive news. It looks like the iPhone is actually checking whether you have an iPhone SIM card then because on 2.x ANY O2 sim card would activate the phone.

    No! The 3Gs is new hardware so will *probably* need a whole new jailbreak which could take months - and that's just for jailbreak, who knows about unlock?

    I have a GMail account and Push is not an option, it is on my Exchange account and Yahoo account but not GMail or hotmail

    Not seen this - source? Could it be on 3.0 beta activated with a different SIM through quickpwn? If we take it on face value it is bad news

    3gs may be awhile for jailbreak. I know a lot of the members don't want to or can't fork over the cash for the 3gs. It may be slow going because of that. We should chip in and buy a phone to donate to them. I will throw down $40.
