    Hey,


    Looking for sound advice please guys!

    So, I jailbroke and unlocked my iPhone 3G years ago and it's got the point where the firmware (3.0 - 7A341) is just too out of date. Rather than me upgrading the jailbroken firmware I just want my normal phone again (because iOS4~ pretty much does the things I wanted my jailbroken phone to do in the first place).

    Here's the crux. I want to stay on Vodafone but my unjailbroken/unlocked iPhone is locked to O2. If I do the following, is this the solution to having a normal - up-to-date iPhone 3G?

    Restore to factory with this:

    Use a free O2 pay-as-you-go sim (whack £15 on it) and use this:

    Would I then have an off-the-shelf 3G mobile that I can update the latest 3G-compatible firmware through iTunes... so Facebook and other apps shouldn't crash every single time, MMS will work and I can sync without fear of things going wrong????

    Thanks.

    Any advice would be most appreciated. I no nothing about basebands, does this affect me?

    Thanks, yes I believe I posted that as part of my question.

    My phone WAS on O2 but I unlocked it to use Vodafone - I'd like to know if my above post is correct and the whole process will give me my desired outcome. Thanks.
