    Default Friend's iPhone want to check if it is factory unlocked
    Ok so my friend he bought his iPhone from Saudi Arabia (Mobily) the sim card worked in Saudi Arabia, now when he came to syria he also put a sim card and it worked. So he wants to jailbreak using spirit but he doesnt know if it is factory unlocked or not.

    iPhone MC model
    version = 3.1.2 (He doesnt want tethered)
    serial = -----950------

    Its like my case when I wanted to know and well I just jailbroke and found out it was factory unlocked cuz I didnt lose my signal.

    Just use spirit to jailbreak. If his sim is working now it will still work after jailbreaking.

    Runing spirit doesn't touch the baseband at all, so wether or not the phone is unlocked it will still work. As long as you don't update the firmware with iTunes it will be fine.

    The phone can't get locked by jailbreaking so if he can use the sim now, he'll also be able to after the jailbreak.

    Yes spirit works for both 3.1.2 and 3.1.3. You can have the phone jailbroken in about 45 seconds.
