Thread: Some questions before I get an iphone, answers please?

    Default Some questions before I get an iphone, answers please?
    Hey. I've been following the iphone hacking to some degree and now that it can be unlocked, I want to get one for use on t-mobile(faves is to great to give up). I just have a few questions before I purchase one:

    1) Can you buy the phone from the apple phone straight out, no activation?
    2) If I buy and unlock it, will I have to worry about new software updates hampering the phones functionality? Are updates forced or can I avoid them and keep the phone at 1.0.2?

    Thanks for the help in advance

    1. Yes
    2. Yes but if you need to restore the phone, iTunes automatically checks for firmware updates, and will apply them.

    but you could just keep the 1.0.2 firmware ipsw on your harddrive in case you did ever need to restore, you can do so using itunes by holding the alt/option key on mac and clicking restore. this will bring up a window asking you to choose the ipsw you would like to restore with.
