    Default Restore on un-locked iphone
    Does anybody know if doing a restore on an unlocked/modded iphone through itunes will reset the phone back to original factory settings? Is it then technically re-locked like it came out of the box?

    you'll need to jailbreak again, but the baseband will remain unlocked (sim unlocked) since the modem firmware is not flashed during restore. I did this last night and just had to transfer the modified lockdownd file over again to get rid of the invalid sim error when that came up when i inserted a non-at&t sim.
