    Default Jailbreak but no unlock?!
    If all goes well and spirit is released with only jailbreak no unlock, so does that mean if I jailbreak my iphone my unlock will be gone?????

    Not sure I follow. If you're already jailbroken you don't really need to run the new jailbreak. If you're factory unlocked, you can't lose that unlock ever. If you're trying to get rid of tethered blackra1n, I think you'll need to wait a bit and see if they make a workaround because if you update to 3.1.3 to use spirit, you will lose the ability to unlock (if you're not factory unlocked of course).

    No im already 3.1.3 not jailbreaked but I bought it unlocked i dunno whether it is factory unlocked or not but the 3rd and 4th and 5th number of my serial is 942 so I think it should be factory unlocked, it has new baseband and everything new...


    Ok my question is that my Iphone is not jailbreaked but unlocked, and it is 3.1.3 so if i use spirit to jailbreak will I lose my unlock?

    Hmmm.... you think factory unlocked. Try another provider sim in it from a freind or relative then you will know.

    As well it could be a 3.1.2 spoofing 3.1.3, or could be a 3g and not a 3gs.

    To tell if jailbroken already see if CYDIA is installed on it.

    Here in Syria we only have 2 types of Sim cards (MTN, and Syriatel)
    I currently am using MTN so should I borrow my sister's Syriatel or what?

    And no I do not have Cydia installed I bought it unlocked not jailbreaked D=

    But everything in my Iphone is new such as:
    MC model
    3.1.3
    05.12.01 Baseband

    And I heared to tell if your bootrom is new check the 3rd 4th and 5th number in the serial number if it is 940 or higher and mine is 942 so I think new bootrom too.

    Lol and it is 3gs cuz it has Compass in it and other stuff that 3g doesnt have...

    if your baseband is 05.12.01 then it is factory unlocked because neither the devs nor geohot have or will release an unlock for 05.12.01
