    Hey there,

    I've got an unlocked iPhone (1.0.2), if I connect it to iTunes, will it automatically update the firmware?

    Obviously, I wanna check this out before I connect it to iTunes, as I don't wanna lose my unlocked iPhone!

    Please help me guys,

    Thanks!

    It asks in a dialog. You can choose to say no and I think turn off update checks.

    I said no twice before installing it since I was busy and wanted to wait.

    No, it will download the software, but you have to request it to update the phone.

    Also, do I need to download the latest version of iTunes, or not?

    No, Apple doesn't force you to update your phone. If you have a software unlock in place, I wouldn't recommend that you update to 1.1.1 yet.

    No it will not update unless you ask it to update to the latest version.
