Ok I'll start this off on how I got to where I am now. For the past month, I've been using an unlocked iPhone with firmware 1.0.2. Recently I was forced to update to firmware 1.1.1 which bricked my iPhone. I followed the steps using independence to downgrade to 1.0.2. So my iPhone is unbricked now but it is still locked and I can't use any of the phone features. If I purchased iPhone Sim Free and then unlocked it using that would that fix all my problems and allow me to use the phone features? Would I be able to update to 1.1.1? I currently have the modem firmware 04.01.13_G. Thanks!
