    After getting a replaced iPhone 4, do they update the firmware on each of the phones? I've heard you get an un-marked box with an either refurbished or brand new iphone, none of which matters to me. I am concerned weather or not the new iphone will have 4.0.2 or 4.0.1 or 4.0 or do they even bother updating all the refurbished phones? or im not too sure about how it works. I've only had this phone for about 3 weeks. Still have a couple of days left on my 30 day warranty. :p

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You gotta get lucky but with refurb units you still have a chance.
    You can also hope to find a nice Apple rep that will look for a replacement unit for you with 4.0 or 4.0.1 if you ask nicely:)

    LOL--the Genius who saw my phone when we bought my husband's wanted to compare notes on Cydia apps. Many of them, if not most JB their own, and even the ones they carry in the store are often JB'd. Can't hurt to ask what firmware's on a new phone they offer you.

    Realistically though, we'll have a new JB within a few weeks as the Dev Team had a couple of exploits saved up. Getting a 4.0.2 phone is a nuisance, but not for long...
