    From what I understand if the phone is unlocked by the carrier, then it remains unlocked forever. Even if the phone is jailbroken.

    No problems, I have a jailbroken 3GS and unlocked fine and my friend unlocked his jailbroken 3G with no problems.

    Hi there,

    I have a jailbroken 3G on 3.1.3....and I am locked out of the new baseband 5.12.01. Will the official o2 unlock work when my iphone has already been jailbroken?

    worked fine on my iPhone 3G I just removed blacksn0w unlock and sync'd and got the unlock message whilst still jailbroken

    the O2 unlock is not baseband specific it will unlock your phone regardless

    No, you have a phone unlocked by your carrier using Apple's servers

    I always wonder why can't the dev/hackers find out how carrier unlock iPhone (ie. forever) that was once locked to specific carrier. I mean, if Apple/carrier is able to do it with a software update then it must mean that there's some sort of way to do it.

    Not that i care much about it because i have an officially unlock iPhone. Just wondering.

    I wish it was that simple.:D
    It is done on the Apples servers side not on the phone.
