    I hear after a while(maybe a year or two) that the iphone battery will need to be replaced.
    Will changing the battery effect the unlocked status of my phone? Or will it remain the same(Unlocked)?
    I think that I'll have to send it to apple for the change when needed.
    I hope they don't upgrade the firmware.

    well if they replace the phone then well no unlocked iphone for you but you know they check for your number if you dont have att your screwed and i dont think if they just replace the battery it should affect it in anyway.

    I recently sent my iPhone for repairs (repairs were covered within Warranty) and I had jailbroken the phone.

    Apple told me via phone with the technician that my iPhone to be properly service would be updated to the latest iPhone software.

    Also, when the box came to send in my iPhone, the same note was their. It states

    So expect your iPhone to be updated if you send it in.

    Edit - I sent my iPhone with 1.1.1 and OktoPrep installed. When I got it back I got firmware 1.1.2, but luckily Apple just Restored it once so doing the Conciented Software jailbreak was successful.

    I use my iphone quite alot and the battery isn't how it use to only through 4 months. I heard we have to change battery after 2 years.

    I hope by then somebody will come up of how to change the battery like the ipods.

    Replacing the battery

    I just searched a couple of web sites that replace an iphone battery.
    The sites claim replacing the the battery will not effect the unlocked status of the phone.
    Replacement looks difficult due to the fact the the battery is soldered to the motherboard.
    Below are the links I've searched.
