    Default How iTunes bricks iPhone??
    Hi there,

    I have 1.0.2 phone and I am happy with it. I keep my iTunes at 7.4.1 version because I don't want to upgrade and get my phone bricked. I am however missing some features of the later iTunes.
    My question is how iTunes bricks the phone? Is it enough to connect it, or sync it or if you press software upgrade to later iPhone software it does it??
    What I want to say is it would be easy NOT to upgrade phone software and just sync contacts and music. Is that OK?
    Thank you,
    Zack

    Just remember to unset the option to "check for updates automatically" in iTunes and then just resist the temptation to click on Upgrade

    I upgrade my itunes to the latest itunes and it doesn't effect my unlock status. You shouldn't have any problems if you upgrade to the newest itunes. You can stick with 7.4 but if you accidentally upgrade just know your still pretty safe.
