Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Functionality of iPhones unlocked.

Hi,

I live in Canada and as you know, the iPhone is not here yet (and coming up at a very expensive price). I was told that I could buy an iPhone, unlock it and use it with a SIM Card from any telecom provider; however, if there is an update to be made, the iPhone would lock again.

1. What are the types of updates and how often this would happen?
2. Is there a way to block the iPhone to get updated?

Thanks a lot for your support!

Julian

Kid_ant i have a question i hope u can help me..recently i told you that i was stuck coz of the upgrade to 3.1.3, the screen now says "connect to itunes with a LOCK logo on top / slide to make Emergency...


Jailbreak-in simple terms, is modifying the software of your iPhone to maximize its functionality, bypassing some restrictions from Apple, like being able to install apps which are not approved by Apple.

Now let's talk about Unlock. Almost all iPhones came locked with a certain carrier (SIM), for instance, AT&T in the US and Fido/Rogers in Canada. That means, if you put other SIM card on the iPhone, its won't be recognized and you won't have any cellular signal. For somebody to be able to use another SIM on his iPhone, the iPhone must first be unlocked, otherwise, like i said, the phone functionality of the iPhone won't work. Also, everytime you restore the iPhone, you're gonna need to have the legit SIM to be able to activate it, without activation, you won't be able to use the iPhone.

Now, the Spirit JB.
The new 3.1.3 Spirit JB does not support any unlocking tool. That means, even if you've jailbroken your iPhone already, you still can't use it coz you still need to activate it with a legit SIM. If you're in the US, try to borrow some AT&T SIM card from any of your friends just to activate your iPhone. If you don't know how to replace your iPhone SIM, go to the link below for the guide.

Iphone 3g


Hi, iPhone 3G's are currently unlockable without a SIM card. (Which are illegal in Canada). The only other 3G provider in Canada that you would be able to use the phone with would be Rogers but they share the same network and have nearly identical plans. There has been progress in efforts towards unlocking the iPhone but the time line is somewhere near November.

Unlocked iphone


Yes, done properly, unlocked iPhones retain full functionality. For obvious reasons, however, you do not want to upgrade them to new firmware revisions when Apple releases them as new firmwares will typically also reflash the baseband, causing the phone to be re-locked (unless you've used a hardware unlock method).

IPhone will not work in Canada is it true?


There is no legit way to unlock it or use it in Canada, though you may be able to use it as an iPod...but Apple gave AT&T a five year exclusive for service in the States...I am sure they are working on a Canadian model, though.
