    hello guys. i bought a iphone 4 in the US but i live in europe.
    its a:
    version 4.1 (8B117)
    modem firmware 02.10.04

    from what i've read its not unlockable yet. but someone told me you could
    unlock it tethered wich would mean you just couldnt reboot the phone because then the unlock goes away. is that true?

    Firmware => untethered or tethered JB

    Baseband => Possible unlock.

    4.1 JB is untethered using Redsnow, Limerain or Greenpoison. 2.10 baseband can't be unlock.

    It cannot be unlocked at the moment.
    Maybe down the road.
    Why did you buy a phone that you cannot use as a phone and have to deal with JB, unlocking, SHSh's, tethered jailbreaks etc...
    If you're in Europe you can buy a factory unlocked iphone and not have to worry about all that.

    Cheaper comes with a catch. A big one that means they're all locked to AT&T.
    You can sell it on eBay or CL.
