    Can't you downgrade to the 1.XX firmware, change your IMEI and then upgrade to a 3.X.X firmware?

    When I saw this on Twitter " Thieves Steal 3,000,000 of iPhones in Belgium " I thought they had stolen 3 million iphones and not $3 million dollars worth of iphones .

    In Australia if a iPhone gets stolen the owner or network provider can very easily block the imei. This imei blocking is now worldwide, I'm pretty sure. It then becomes absolutely useless to anyone anywhere in the world. There is no way to unblock unless your the original owner.They will stay imei blocked for 2 years.

    For example I was buying US 3G iPhones to unlock and sell is Australia, several I bought were stolen in the US and imei was blocked by AT&T rendering them absolutely useless in Australia, even with them jailbroken and unlocked. There doesn't seem to be any knowledge from itunes though when you are using a imei blocked iPhone, it doesn't seem to care there.

    If this happened in Australia they would be worthless but being in Belgium and maybe Europe having much more relaxed laws between the providers on imei number ownership maybe they are still work 3MILL!!

    Mad props, ya someone just made it out of a recession on top of the game. Now if someone would just take down some m$ products that would be even better.

    !!! Damn! They lost a crap load of money. I won't be surprised if it appears as an auction item. What the heck is their problem?
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
