    Default Taking phone Unlocked Phone Back to Store..
    Hi,

    Tomorrow I am taking my unlocked apple iphone into my local apple store. I have an ATT contract Iphone contract, but I used Ziphone to to jailbreak/unlock my 1.1.4 I Phone. In order to prepare the for the apple visit tomorrow, I did a fresh firmwire restore but I am still worried that apple will some how find out my phone is unlocked. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am taking my phone to the apple store due to a blown speaker phone.

    I'm wondering the same exact thing. I'll watch this thread for the night before I do anything. I have a week 29 1.1.4 phone, jailbroke with ziphone, BL is at 3.9 right now. Wondering if my baseband matters or not. Planning on doing a full restore and taking it into the apple store in the next week or two. I would assume since I have an early phone, I should be fine with a restore and not having them notice.

    as far as I can tell so far from staying up way too late is this:
    when did you buy your phone? Look at the 4th and 5th serial number of your phone. Anything 39 and after will usually mean your phone came with a 4.6BL, anything before may mean your phone came with the 3.9BL. ZiPhone puts your phone at 3.9 when it jailbreaks your phone. My phone has the number 29, so I think I am safe at this point. I'm still worried about the baseband issue, but am hoping a thread I started on another forum will answer that for me. If your phone came with the 4.6BL, I think you will need to restore, then use the pwn tool. But don't quote me, I'm still trying to figure this one out and since it's so late, help isn't up right now, lol.

    good luck with the store tomorrow if you take it in anyways. I think the Bootloader is the main thing to worry about, so hopefully you have an early phone

    That will be hard,it downgraded bootloader...
    Try to PWN your iPhone,then upgrade your bootloader through bootnueter to 4.6 and then DFU restore to 1.1.4 firmware,this will help.

    took it into apple, and they didnt check the bootloader. They played with my phone for a few, and then gave me a new one which works like a charm. I will jailbreak this phone with liberty instead of ziphone.

    my ringer switch was broke and i didnt want to open it up to fix it....so did the restore thing to lock it back to att w/1.1.4(originally tmobile)...then i activated it using my friends sim and got a 20.00 plan....then we went to the apple store and the guy talked for a bit about how my phone had scratches on it and they usually wont replace it....then he said he'll replace it for me anyway, and i walked out with a new phone......when i went home unlocked it again....now im back on t mobile ...nobody there asked anything about unlocking...

    funny when i was on the phone with apple customer support to set an appointment up..she knew i was talking on the unlocked iphone and she knew it wasnt activateed...but i just hung up on her...lol

    one thing is, if you are att they will send in your phone they took and run diag on it...if it comes back hacked they will flag your account so next time you come in you will not be able to swap out
