Thread: Advice on purchasing a new iPhone 3GS?

    Default Advice on purchasing a new iPhone 3GS?
    Hi all,

    I'd like to get an iPhone 3GS with contract from AT&T (USA). I want to jailbreak it, though, so I need to ensure I get a 3.1.2.

    Is it possible to get a new phone from the AT&T store that still has 3.1.2? How could I make sure, aside from asking them to open the box and power it up? Serial number?

    If I buy it in an AT&T store, will they try to upgrade the firmware for me? What will I need to do with a new phone so that I can jailbreak?

    From what I've gathered online, I need to
    1. Install custom firmware via iTunes
    2. Boot with blackra1n
    3. Save my SHSH with Cydia to protect me from future upgrades

    Any tips on how to make sure a new phone I get has 3.1.2 on it?

    I'm pretty sure they won't open the boxes and power it up to see if it's what u want...u will probably just have to take what they give u but u can tell them to leave it in the box and u will activate it at home

    Chances of getting a non 3.1.3 3gs are pretty slim. I think you are going to end up dissapointed. eBay?
