    Hey guys,

    I have an iPhone 3GS that I've had jailbreaked from the start. When I moved to another country in summer, I used SAMprefs to unlock it. (I could have had it unlocked by my provider, too, but I was impatient.) Now, the whole situation has changed a bit (Installous being out of the picture, plus my financial situation allows for actual purchase of apps. :p)

    So I was thinking about upgrading to iOS 6, since I'm still running 5.0.1, thus loosing my jailbreak. Will removing the jailbreak also remove the unlock?

    yes it will remove the unlock, did you save your activation ticket with SAM?

    I have no idea. I also didn't have an idea when I did it, just followed some tutorial on the intertubes. :D The only reason I did this was because my provider had provided me with an unlock link like 6 months before I actually needed it unlocked and then it turned out to not work anymore. I guess I could actually request a new one or something :)

    What's the activation ticket good for anyway?
