    hello everyone, someone has asked me to unlock their iphone. I'd do this by using Redsn0w and Ultrasn0w as I've been into iphones and ipods for ages so know what I'm doing with that, however....

    I will be carrying this out on my laptop which will obviously involve the iphone being formatted which they don't mind, but when they plug it back in on their computer what will happen, will it all have to be erased including the jailbreak and unlock???? thanks Mike

    PS the iphone is on 4.2.1

    If its on 4.2.1 the only way to unlock would be to install the ipad bb.
    And that comes with many sides, let them know before you do it.
