I have just read that apple may be releasing a new update for the iPhone.
If you have unblocked yours, then DO NOT update. It may cause your iPhone to brick (or lock up).
Apparantly there will be a fix for this update sometime soon, so wait for it rather than taking a risk and having an expensive and useless phone.
You do not have to update or use any that are sent to you. Apple don't enforce updates.
So again, don't risk it and wait. !!!!!!
The 1.1.1 firmware revision that bricked some unlocked iPhones a couple months ago had to do with buggy unlocking software. Versions of the 'AnySim' package prior to 1.1 corrupted the SecZone which would cause the phone to turn into an expensive iBrick when the 1.1.1 firmware was applied. I don't believe phones that were IPSF or hardware unlocked were affected. Regardless..if you have an unlocked iPhone in the US, definitely wait until the iPhone Dev teams figure it out. If you are like most people and have a locked or 'virgin' iPhone, you shouldn't have any problems with upgrading.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones). click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Good luck!
