    Only after you install either purplesn0w or ultrasn0w via Cydia. Lots of threads about it.....look around a bit.

    Do you mean that if i use redsnow or purplerain it will lock my unlocked iphone?
    I will not use purplesnow or ultrasnow, as my iphone is already unlocked by the carrier

    I am just confused that if i jailbreak or restore iphone will i remove my unlock???????

    redsnow and purplerain don't lock phones. As far as a Restore locking your phone, if its factory unlocked then it shouldn't matter. My sister has a factory unlocked 3G and has Restored more than once with no issues.

    if the iPhone is the first iPhone, no. If it's a 3G, yes.. but an unlock is available for 3.0 so just connect to wifi untill you install the unlock
