Thread: 3GS: Should I preserve baseband?
05-10-2011, 02:03 PM #13GS: Should I preserve baseband?
iPhone 3GS 32GB owner and new member here!
I have a JB but personally have no need for an unlock and likely never will. But having read up on it, it seems like I should preserve my baseband anyway so the resale value is higher when I upgrade to the 5. Is there much difference if I keep the BB?
I ask because I'm currently on 4.01 BB 5.13.04, and want to upgrade my JB as its getting a bit laggy.
So should I care about an unlock?

if you plan on selling it, you will definately have a bigger market if it is unlockable. otherwise all the AT&T members arent gonna want a 3GS, they will want an iphone 4 or 5. I would keep it in an unlockable state if I were you and worring about reselling.

Looks like I'll be going the custom firmware route, haven't done it before so should be interesting. Thanks for the replies.
