    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I just can't find a discussion where this is clearly mentioned: on which iOS version is a new iPhone 4 that you buy in an Apple store in the US? 4.0 or 4.1? Has anyone bought one in the past few days and would be able to tell me?

    Thanks!

    4.02 generally. Though some may have 4.1 preloaded. Most are, as far as I know still preloaded with 4.0.2

    Mostly 4.0.2 and some are getting 4.1 also.
    Both cannot be JB or unlocked.

    But if your itunes is running software version 4.1 and you sync your new phone, doesn't this automatically update it?

    What?:D
    iTunes running firmware version 4.1?
    You're way off.
    It will pop up a message asking you if you want to update your iphone to the latest version. Its up to the user, you dont have to. You can click the box that never asks you again. It never updates automaticly without the user accepting and click ok and yes a bunch of times and waiting to download the firmware update.
    BTW the new 4.0.2 seems to be jailbroken so far with limerain so if you get one with 4.0.2 you can JB and unlock it with ultrasnow.
    Nothing for the official 4.1 baseband will unlock it yet.

    I'm not familiar with the technical language. What I am asking, and it may still not be clear, is if I have updated my itunes to OS 4.1 and a sync my new iphone 4 with this version of itunes, will my phone be running OS 4.1?

    You dont update itunes with os4.1 you only update the phone with ios4.1.
    And no if you just sync your phone with itunes 10.0.1 it will not update your phone automaticly without asking you and without you clicking yes and accept a few times.

    OK, thank you: I finally understand. By the way, I'm 80 years old and have new 15" and 17" MacBook pro computers and an iphone 4. I'm pretty adept at what I use them for, but the technical vocabulary often confuses me.

    I got one 3 days ago and it had 4.0.2.
    Yesterday at the ATT store 4 went out the door, all having 4.0.2 cuz each CSR informed the new owners of the ios installed and that there was a update.
