    i should have probably written down, i am dying to do this, but i want to unlock it... she just uses it with atnt but only wanted the extra programs...
    will it brick or change the ime number which the phone has, and then be turned away from the genius? and will unlocking it.. do the same?

    no, restoring it does what its suppose to do, restore it. Whether it removes all traces of the ziphone app is anyones guess. But Id venture to say if you need repairs and take it to an apple store after youve done a restore they will never know it was jailbroken or unlocked with ziphone.

    Other than the Dev Team's new system, ZiPhone is one of the premier ways to fiddle with your iPhone.

    I used it the last time I jailbroke/unlocked, for the record.

    People have reportedly even received unlocked phones from AT&T as refurb units (because AT&T didn't bother to re-lock them, or apparently check, for that matter).

    If you're looking for zero risk, the only option is AT&T. And keeping your phone in a protective air bubble inside the Fortress of Solitude. But even then those criminals from Krypton broke into the Fortress, so apparently the security is teh cR4PP3Rz.... So basically, you're SOL. :(
