    Default Factory unlock option with Gevey
    Has anyone on here had success with this? As usual I am confused about what needs to happen. If I factory unlock do I still HAVE to jailbreak in order to use my phone (voice calls, messaging, etc)? If I factory unlock when I plug up to iTunes will my iOS automatically update?

    Thank you in advance for your patience with my ignorance...

    If you factory unlock it will do the same as it is doing now. It will ask you to do an update which you can say no to.

    Being factory unlocked affects nothing but the ability to use any sim card, not being locked to your carrier only. The phone functions exactly the same way as it did before it was unlocked.

    If you are factory unlocked you do not need to jailbreak or a gevey to use your phone. It will also never lock back up. You can restore it and update it and do whatever you want and you will always be able to use your phone.
