Thread: unlock with ultrasn0w

  1. #1
    Default unlock with ultrasn0w
    hey all really new to this whole JB/unlock expereince. digging it 100 percent. mad props to the dev team, app creators and the MMi community. anyways i wanted to know if unlocking the my 3gs on 4.1 is ok to do even if im under contract with ATT.

    one thing i dont want to hassle with is sim changes or anything else.

    will ATT know i have unlocked? and is it advisable to unlock under contract?


    thanks!

    Why would you want to unlock if you have an ATT contract?

    Since you are staying with ATT there is no reason to unlock. only do that if you are going to use your iphone on a different carrier. ie t-mobile

    I think what your trying to ask is will your carrier know if you unlock your phone, I'm fairly new to this myself, however I don't see how you carrier could possibly know what software you have on your phone without ssh-ing into your phone! I'm sure an expert will confirm, I never used to be unlocked until in an emergency when I had the battery ANC no signal and my friend gas signal no battery! Couldn't just slip his aim into my phone to make the call we really needed to make!!

    ATT probably wouldn't know if you were unlocked, and they certainly wouldn't care. There really is no use as long as you are under contract with them to unlock though.
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks

    there would be no difference in unlocking now or when your AT&T contract ends, only thing is if you do it now you have more choice if you ever need it (example you can't get signal with AT&T but can with T-mobile), also AT&T will only find out if you show them, but even then its only Apple that can void your warrenty not AT&T, and unlocking is legal
