    Look at this post here. You will have to update to the iPad baseband, because your current baseband isn't able to be unlocked.

    Ok I see, So the only draw back to this is my warranty will expire. However I will be able to use the phone on any carrier. correct? will this let me update my phone to future updates like 4.4 or w/e?

    Yes, the new unlock will void your warranty for good because you're updated the iPhone's baseband to that of an iPad (no going back after that).

    To upgrade to a future update would be iPhone suicide. The iPhone Dev-Team or whoever would have to figure out a way to unlock the iPad baseband again. So updating would be a big no-no, unless there is a solution.

    For now, I suggest not upgrading and changing your baseband. Wait for a better way to get the unlock. But if you really need it then go for it. If you can wait, use another phone.

    Exactly. The new unlock is really for people who are stuck and actually need it. It's really not for people who want to upgrade just because they want to upgrade. If your iPhone is out of warranty like a 3 year old 3G, then updating your baseband for the unlock is doable.
