    AT&T won't unlock it for you. iPad baseband is the only method.

    Not sure what you mean by iTunes unlocking it.

    Only with the iPad baseband, or if the carrier it is locked to is willing to unlock it.

    One more query...(iphone noob here)

    If i am able to buy an iPhone 4 (not 4S) with iOS 5 but the baseband preserved to 1.59.00 then can i unlock and jailbreak it ?
    I think there is a software unlock for this baseband right ? Will it work also with iOS 5 ??
    Also i guess jailbreak should be possible for the iOS 5 right ?

    Yes, you can unlock that baseband with ultrasnow. There is a jailbreak for 5.0 now but it is tethered.

    ^^Thanks for the quick reply mod. Now i need to fix a deal with the seller because i think getting an iPhone 4 with this baseband is rare on ebay. What should be a good price to pay for a used iPhone 4 16GB with iOS 5 and baseband 1.59.00 ??

    1: Go to settings-general-about and and scroll down until you see modem firmware.

    or

    2: Download f0recast from here: iH8sn0w.com | Jailbreak your iPod touches and iPhones. Run it with your phone connected and it will tell you what baseband you have.

    or

    3: Download Tiny Umbrella from here: The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella. Run it and click on your phone, you should see it under "installed baseband".

    Use #2 or #3 if you are at the emergency screen and cannot access the phone.

    Once you know what your baseband is you can check here if it can be unlocked:

    iPhone 3G/3GS

    Baseband Firmware Unlock

    4.26.08 3.0/3.0.1 Yes (Ultrasn0w)
    5.11.07 3.1/3.1.2 Yes (Ultrasn0w/blacksn0w)
    5.12.01 3.1.3 Yes (Ultrasn0w)
    5.13.04 4.0/4.0.2/4.0.3 yes (Ultrasn0w)
    5.14.02 4.1 None *See below on how to unlock if here
    5.15.04 4.2.1 None *See below on how to unlock if here
    5.16.01 4.3 None *See below on how to unlock if here
    5.16.02 4.3.X None *See below on how to unlock if here
    5.16.05 5.0 None *See below on how to unlock if here
    6.15.00 Custom Firmware or redsnow method yes (Ultrasn0w)

    iPhone 4

    Baseband Firmware Unlock

    1.59.00 4.0/4.0.1/4.0.2 Yes (Ultrasn0w)
    2.10.04 4.1 Gevey Sim
    3.10.01 4.2.1 Gevey Sim
    4.10.01 4.3.X Gevey Sim
    4.11.08 5.0 None

    iPhone 4S

    1.0.11 5.0 None




    Baseband Cannot be downgraded unless you have a iPhone 3G that has a 5.8 bootloader. f0recast/tiny umbrella can tell you if you do. If you are lucky enough to have this then you can use Fuzzyband in cydia to downgrade your baseband.

    Important For Unlockers

    Baseband can be preverved when updating two ways:

    1. Restoring to custom firmwares made with pwnage tool or sn0wbreeze. Tutorials can be found here::

    2. Using Tiny Umbrella to preserve baseband during restore. This method only works on iPhone 4. Do not attempt with any other iDevice. Tutorial can be found here:
    Windows: iClarified - iPhone - How to Update Your iPhone 4 Without Upgrading the Baseband (Windows) 4.3.1

    For people stuck on Baseband 5.14.02/5.15.04/5.16.01/5.16.02/5.16.05

    There is a way for you to unlock now using a method of updating your baseband with a custom firmware made with pwnage tool or by using redsnow to update the baseband for you. For full info using this method read here VERY carefully (especially the part about loss of GPS): Dev-Team Blog

    Tutorials for using pwnage tool to update baseband so that you can unlock can be found here:
    iPhone 3G: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone 3G Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.2.1]
    iPhone 3GS: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1]

    Redsn0w method:
    HOW TO: RedSn0w 0.9.6b5 To Unlock Your iPhone 3G/3Gs With Tricky New Ultrasn0w [Mac & Windows] | FSMdotCOM

    Unlockers should use custom firmware or Tiny umbrella method (iPhone 4 only) 99% of the time when updating/restoring. The only exception is when it is confirmed that the latest firmware has a baseband that can be unlocked. (Thx blkcadi & Mes )

    really useful post...good...
