    Default How to tell if factory unlocked??
    I jut bought a black 3GS from walmart. I was thinking I might be able to jailbreak it and swap it for my 16gig..there's no shsh blobs saved and in f0recast,it says already unlocked...but it hasn't been jailbroken. And I checked tinyumbrella on all firmwares and there's no shsh

    Does that mean it's factory unlocked??

    Walmart "accidentally" sold you a factory unlocked phone? Highly doubtful.

    Well...it's starting to look like that.

    You see the screenshot....draw your own conclusions.

    Bump....As I stated earlier, theres no SHSH files saved for anything below 4.0.2 but there is one saved for 4.1

    Could it of been jailbroken with the shsh files saved locally only?? Would the unlock stay in effect even if a restore was done to factory 4.0.2??

    I'm confused..lol

    Thanks

    For real?? That's sweet.

    I'm hoping I lucked out. Can't jailbreak it but if it's a factory unlock, I'll throw it in the b/s/t forum or eBay..lol

    And I can't put a different sim in cause I don't have one..lol..we only have AT&T and verizon here

    I don't think so, just tried with mine and it says nothing of the sort.

    It should say "international warranty" or something if it's factory unlocked. I'm pretty sure that's how it works

    I checked one time to find out where my phones are from since I bought them from eBay. One was from Canada and one from the US. Forgot how I managed to search that but I did enter the serials. Wish I could find that site...
