    I searched for answer or tried to find one. But My cell phone keeps loosing it's signals goes from 5 bars to none. So I need to get it checked, but of course it's JB and unlocked so I need to do a restore of 3.0, I have a few Questions!

    1 any way to save my info and setup so I can restore the JB when I get done at apple?

    2 should I do the 3.0 restore or wait till 3.1

    3 any tips on how to make this simpler?

    For the most thorough job, you should do a DFU restore back to 3.0, and then take it to Apple. They won't be able to tell a thing. I had to get my iPhone serviced so I did a DFU restore, and then a recovery mode restore and that seemed to be fine.

    1. Back it up in iTunes. However, sometimes jailbroken backups have trouble going back on a device.

    2. Shouldn't make a difference. Just DON'T upgrade to 3.1 or else you might have a problem since it is unlocked. Make sure your problem isn't fixed after you restore it.

    3. Be prepared to lose everything that is not backed up to your computer.

    Thanks just one other FYI

    I actually took it back to the Apple store yesterday (Unlocked) simply because I read some where a Apple genius not making a big deal about it. She looked at it and took in back for a sec told me as long as it's a unlocked phone Apple won't do anything and to restore the Apple software and all will be well! ;)
