So I will keep my iOS as 4.1? How can I use some latest application? :( I also asked a store here nearby and I wa told that he can keep the firmware to 02.10.04 plus update the version to 5.0.1 then at the same time I can have it unlocked and use local network provider????

Do think this is all true?

Thanks :)

Yes, 02.10.04 is your baseband version. Not the firmware.
Your firmware is 4.1
You can update to a custom 5.0.1 ipsw with redsnow and keep your old unlockable baseband version.
You will still need to buy a gevey.

Go to iClarified.com and get a tutorial that uses Redsn0w and includes a No_BB IPSW to preserve your 2.10.xx baseband

Just remember, the clock is ticking
Once Apple stops signing 5.0.1, you can only go to 5.1 (and Redsn0w won't work for doing that)

You can try and find a grey market vendor who can IMEI unlock your phone.
I do know that IMEI unlocks for SoftBank phones are very hard to find.
Many others have posted this repeatedly.

What the hell is Japan Baseband?! Don't make things up!

If you actually READ the thread then you will know Modem Firmware IS the baseband.

You need to learn how to search and read. Not going to mouth feed you.

You can't unlock this one. I think you should rather stop searching for the unlock as you would be scammed by someone claiming he can unlock it. So beware !

HELP!!!! Can I update my Iphone4 from version 4.1 to 6.1.3

I already unlocked my phone using Gevey sim. My phone is from Japan and I'm using it here in the Philippines. I can already text or call in my phone but the problem is I can't download application because it requires a higher version. Can I update my phone from 4.1 to 6.1.3 using iTunes. Is it a good idea or not? What might happened to my phone if I update it?

Iphone 4
version 4.1
firmware 02.10.04

If you update the baseband, the sim interposer will no longer work.
You can use Sn0wbreeze to update to 6.1.3 and preserve the baseband, but it will be a tethered jailbreak (if you require the jailbreak to use the sim interposer - that might be an issue)
Contact the sim manufacturer or retailer for correct support.

hi, i am from the philippines

i saw the new iphone 5c and i told my aunt in the usa to buy one for me, and she bought at&t carrier or in short, the phone is not unlocked, since i asked her to buy the iphone5c which is & $99

so i just want to ask if the phone will still work here in the philippines,
i mean that i can still connect to wi-fi and use the applications even if it is at&t carrier, it does not matter that i cant insert sim and send texts and calls

will it still work as a recreational material? since i have an ordinary phone to use for texting and calling

please, im hoping for positive responses:)

It needs to be activated, so a AT&T sim should be included otherwise it won't activate, it does not need to be an active SIM wit an active acount.

You should be able to get a greymarket IMEI unlock really cheap for an AT&T phone, like $2, then you can use it for calls as well!
