    Default Unlocking the iPhone straight OTB (if it's 1.1.1)
    If I get an iPhone that is 1.1.1 for X-mas what steps do I take to unlock it so it can be used on T-mobile? Can I just follow the guides on the site straight out of the box? Or does it need to be activated first?

    If it is a 1.1.2 then I think I will just use AT&T - Although I don't want to. By the way how is EDGE on T-mobile? Curious what other users have experienced.

    Thanks for the tips and sorry for a newb question.

    Just follow this guide for 1.1.1. It will take just a few minutes.

    I've used EDGE on ATT and TMO and it's about the same for me. Compared to wifi it's lame, but it's better than nothing.

    How do I tell what version the boot loader and firmware is out of the box? Just so I can check it real quick.. as I said nothing has been activated of anything.

    Thanks for you help - it is truly appreciated!

    follow the link above, and then follow the first think there (activate/jailbreak)
    start that guide - and when you get into settings panel, you can check:
    general -> about, and it will tell you what firmware you are running.

    if it is 1.1.1, you should be good to go,
    I don't know how to check the bootloader without using SSh,
    and I don't know how to use SSH without jailbreaking first.
    if it's 1.1.1 out of the box though, it wouldn't have the new bootloader from what I've read.
