    so i was wanting to know, with the modem firmware update as well as the OS update, does the factory unlock still stick or what?

    i did that last night, downgraded from 4.0 to 3.1.3 and the unlock has stuck, but want to confirm that the unlock will stick with 4.0.

    let me know please.

    thanks

    p.s udid is registered :p

    The factory unlock will work regardless of OS.

    BaseBand?

    To me I thought it had to do with the baseband (which is not effected by any OS Update) because it's not a part of the OS, its a part of your phone --However I may be wrong but I am pretty sure thats correct

    your iPhone should be fine.

    hence the term

    factory Unlocked! also why true factory unlocked phones command more money! the owner doesn't have to worry about losing his unlock with firmware upgrades/ if he jb's he can still loose that!

    Thank you. Guess the OP doesn't care to believe what he is told !

    Perhaps he should use Google to understand why factory unlocks are forever.
