    Default Interesting unlocked 2g iphone
    I had unlocked my original 2g iphone(original command line method) and for some reason... It stays unlocked and activated regardless if i simply update or restore or anything i can do to it through iTunes and regardless of the iTunes version.

    What baseband is it running? Since a year ago from 2.0 > 2.0.1 > 2.0.2 > 2.1 > 2.2 > 2.2.1 these all run the same baseband, 4.05.04, and therefore will remain unlocked no matter what.

    The 2G remains unlocked as they don't change the BB.

    Activation can be a problem though...

    I know the unlock sticks, but how does it remain activated regardless of the firmware update i'm using? It's interesting nonetheless. I wonder if it can be of any use to hardcore iphone modders.

    Did you upgrade or restore?

    I simply upgrade now. No pwned firmwares just regular iTunes upgrade.

    Upgrade might keep your activation but will almost certainly cause all sorts of problems.
    When you start getting problems do a restore but if things are working OK for you at the moment - enjoy
