    ok now. hi im gonna install ipads baseband but i got a quuestion it say . is this newer model of the iphone 3gs ? if you are not sure you can determine your production week from the serial number in your settings>general>about screen.
    the week number is usually the 4th and the 5th digit of the serial number. for example .a sn beginning with 88926 would be week 26 of 2009
    and the serial on my iphone 3gs ios 4.2.1 is begining with 881050

    iPhone 3GS RedsnOw Question

    iPhone 3GS ios 5.0.1
    My SN Begins with 841041
    Says Is This The Newer (Fixed) Model: Yes or No
    (Do I Hit Yes or No) Can Someone Help Me Out

    Is this a newer model of the iPhone? If not sure, you can determine your production week from the serial number in your Settings->General->About screen. The week number is usually the 4th and 5th digit of the serial number, For example, a SN beginning with 88926... would be week 26 of 2009 3GS units made week 45 or later usually have a fixed bootrom before week 40, they usually have the older (Desirable) one, Betwwen weeks 40 and 45, results vary Caution: If you have a newer model and you don't correctly identify it here, you will likely need to do a full official restore to fix the mistake, losing any unsynced data. Note that newer models cannot yet have a custom logos.
