    Default iPhone 4 Jailbreak--Unlocking Question
    Hello I live in India, my dad is currently in the states and he is going to get me a 32GB iPhone, (YAAAY!!!!!) but the question is, in another forum, i was told not to buy since there wont be a jailbreak or unlock for 4.1, and in the future there would only be jailbreak's and no unlocking. Is it true??? i am so confused.. this is not fair

    what should i do? i dont mind waiting for the unlock to be released but im just so confused i have no idea what happening right now. I know i would be able to activate the phone from itunes with the AT&T sim card provided. Correct me if i am wrong... Should i tell my dad NOT to get the iphone or what should i do exactly??? All i know is the dev team found a permanent exploit in the A4 chip which would be good for jailbreaking but i have no news about unlocking. any tips will be helpful.

    Thank You



    P.S. Its been almost 3/4 years since i joined MMI. Hooray 4 Me!. :P

    There is no unlock nor is one going to be released any time soon for the new base band that 4.1 installs. Your best bet is to buy a factory unlocked phone.

    Have him buy a factory unlocked one. He would have had to sign a two year contract for an AT&T one. Factory unlocked I 4 is about $800

    You won't be screwed if he can get one on 4.0.2 the most cuz the baseband hasn't been upgraded for that yet. It's just a matter of waiting for the new jailbreak, but it's still unlockable.

    A factory unlocked from Canada would be great though, they're around $670/$730 (not 100% sure on those prices but that's close) for 16GB and 32GB respectively. If he could just somehow get to Canada, haha. On eBay the fac unlocked ones are so awfully expensive :/

    Even the ones that aren't unlocked but on a previous fw/baseband, they can still get pretty pricey on eBay.

    But the answer to your question is, the firmware can be on 4.0.2 and still be unlockable, just gotta wait a few days for the new jb. If it's on 4.1, it's not worth it, the unlock is screwed. If it's 4.0.1, it'll be perfect but chances are, the new iP4 are all coming out with either 4.0.2 or 4.1. Mine came with 4.0.2 and this was about 2 weeks ago.

    Well, all they had was 4.1 and my dad bought it. im getting mixed answers from all over... saying 4.02 wont b unlocked or jailbroken, 4.1 will be. and people are saying the opposite here....

    I can tell you we here on MMi are most likely correct. Unfortunately, I think you're mixing it up a little. 4.1 will be jailbroken in time, maybe soon even. The new baseband that comes with it for all devices, will not be unlocked at this time. It might take a month, it might take up to 3 or 4 months; there is currently no talk on the unlock as of right now since the devs mentioned they are working hard on the jailbreak and need all hands possible. The unlock is not going to be available soon, but the jailbreak will be.

    So your 4.1 iP4 will not be unlocked for a bit of time. I'm sorry to say.

    Yea, i been here since i had my first iPhone 2G in 2007. I trust MMi more then other forums. But, yesterday, there was a twitter from the chronicdevteam saying "To those asking about unlock: At this time, only the jailbreak is being worked on, as it requires the team's full attention." which you have said.... but Lets say 4.2 Will be released, i have a feeling the Dev's will just release the jailbreak for 4.2 since the BETA is already out and they will come out with a jailbreak & unlock for 4.2 instead of wasting time on 4.1 but thats just my guess.... And since the jailbreak can be done via the A4 chip, it wont really matter but thats just me.... tell me what you think????? And also, Once i get my iphone, on October 28th, how do i activate?? i can use the iphone as a ipod right??? Can i activate with the AT&T card that comes with it and not go for a plan or anything?????

    I think yes, the next step is probably to unlock once they get the new jb out. I would think that it could take a but of time tho.

    As for activating, yes get an AT&T SIM. Any AT&T SIM will work.

    Apparently, work on the unlock isn't even going to start until after the jailbreak is done and released. I'm guessing we'll be waiting till Christmas.
