    4.0.1 = Can be unlocked.

    4.0.2 = CANNOT be unlocked.

    4.1 = CANNOT be unlocked YET. Dev team is working on unlocking it. Should be too far.


    The likelyhood of you getting a 4.0.1 is very low. It will most likely be 4.1. You will just have to wait for the unlock. Or if you know anyone in Canada, u can get the factory unlocked phone from an Apple store in Canada. I believe UK also.

    The guys post above just said that 4.0.1 can be unlocked. If you read the dev teams website it says they have an unlock for 4.1 in it's testing phase (It works but it's not ready for public release yet). They are working on it. More than likely it will be here before 4.2 comes out. 4.0.2 and 4.1, at this moment in time, are not able to be unlocked.

    Sorry your information is incorrect.
    The Dev Team has clearly said that they will not work on unlocking 4.0.2.

    So your best bet is avoid 4.0.2.

    4.1 unlock shouldn't be too far away.

    So, if i get 4.02, then i should just just update to 4.1 right????? Because if i update then the baseband will also get updated.... i am so confused right now. damn

    Yes.
    The Dev Team has said they won't work on a 4.0.2 jailbreak.
    So if you can't jailbreak, you can't unlock.

    My phone came with 4.0.2. I have already updated to 4.1 and am waiting for the Dev Team to release the 4.1 unlock.

    O ok, thank you for your help and also, do you know if you can tell which IOS is pre installed by looking at the back of the box?????? Or do you have to take the iphone out of the box and activate it to see????

    Yeah, as far as I know you have to open the box and check the actual phone to know which OS is on it.

    4.0.1 and 4.0.2 share the same baseband so 4.0.2 can be unlocked if there was a jailbreak for it (which there isn't). 4.1 on the other hand has a new baseband for which there is no unlock, and the dev team have not said anything about progress on an unlock for it. So even if you're on 4.0.2 do not upgrade (unless you know how to preserve the baseband) if you want an unlock when the 4.1 jailbreak comes out.

    The above countries offer unlocked iPhones 4s according to a website i found through Google.

    If your dad is passing one of those countries, you might be better off getting the factory unlocked ones.

    Goodluck!

    As others have said, you likely won't get 4.0.1. If you can get 4.0.2 don't upgrade unless you upgrade and preserve the baseband. While a jailbreak for 4.1 is likely near, it will probably be a long time before an unlock for 4.1+ is available.

    Well, I got a 32GB iPhone 4 iOS Version 4.1. People are saying the jailbreak is not far at all. Maybe Just a Couple of More days, Although i will get my iPhone on October 28th.... :( So hopefully by that time, the unlock will also be released. Lets see what happens i guess.... Im constantly checking Twitter.....

    P.S. Anyone that has recently bought a iPhone (whether it was 32GB or 16GB) have any problems like prox, or antenna issues????? etc. ????? Can some people give there opinions????
