    Morning all,

    I've got my hands on a iPhone 4, version 6.0.1, base band 04.12.02. My question is unlock-ability. It does not seem that this base band is unlocked, but I'm wondering if I upgrade the software to a newer version, would the new base band be unlocked yet? I'm not sure what base band upgrading will give me, so I'm very cautions before I try this, of course. Just wondering where I should go from the current version and firmware. Thanks!

    Trevor

    It can definitely be unlocked. Depends on if your carrier offers unlocks.

    Perhaps I should have been more specific. I'm looking for a jailbreak unlock.

    Why are you still trying to unlock it with jailbreak when factory unlocks are cheap and reliable? Also, no you won't be able to unlock through jailbreak because factory unlocks became so cheap there is no point in developers wasting there time for jailbreak unlock.

    hmm... this factory unlock thing is new to me. Seems to be a lot of BS on google about it thou. Care to suggest a reliable source? The phone is from Rogers.

    You can look on eBay, but for Canadian carriers it's fairly expensive.
