    forcast only guesses based on serial number. to know for sure.

    To check iPhone 3G/3GS bootrom version:

    Put your iphone in DFU mode.
    (Connect your iPhone to iTunes, turn off, click power +home button for 10 seconds, leave POWER button after 10 seconds, holding HOME button)

    iTunes will detect your iPhone in recovery mode.

    Go To:

    Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

    In Universal Serial BUS Controller, you will find Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

    Right Click and go to Properties, go to Details tab and select "Device Instance Path" from the drop down list box.

    In that information, u will find [iBoot-359.x] at the end.


    On a Mac:

    Put the iPhone in DFU mode
    Then navigate to "About this Mac".
    From there go to "More Info...", and select USB on the list on the left.
    Under the USB menu you can select "Apple Mobile Device (DFU Mode)" and that will bring up information about the iPhone.

    About half way down it will have the iBoot information:
    It will either be [iBoot-359.3]-old or [iBoot-359.3.2]-new.
    To get it out of DFU mode just hold both the home and power button until it powers back on

    I think: go to settings then general, look under Model: if the first 2 letters are MC it's the new bottom, if not then your lucky

    MC model only matters for iPod touch, not iPhone.
