Should we try and keep our current baseband? Non 1.59

    I know the Gevey SIM is out there but would it still be a smart idea to keep our 2.10 or other baseband in case it turns out that one or the other could be unlocked? Or that the Gevey SIM will only work with certain basebands?

    Currently have 3.10.01 on 4.2.1. Is it worth saving baseband when upgrading to 4.3.1 in the chance that 3.10.01 is unlockable someday?

    I'm keeping my BB at 01.59. I don't trust those gevey SIM cards. Plus these iPhones sell for more should I later decide to sell it.

    Never hurts to keep it to be on the safe side however I just gave up and said screw it. The JB is more important to me than the unlock so I don't even care about maintaining my BB anymore. Besides, I have faith in the guys that they'll be able to come out with an unlock for the later BB's anyways.

    Gevey works with all current basebands.

    Seeing that only the first iPhone 4 baseband has been unlocked. I wouldn't hold my breath for a software unlock coming anytime soon, especially if iOS 5 is released in 3 months this summer -- JMO. I hope I'm wrong.

    I would preserve the baseband, though, just incase.

    My phone came with 03.10.01, but I'm preserving it just in case. It's easy to do with tinyumbrella. Im on 4.3.1 w/ 03.10.01 BB.

    You could, but seems a waste of time. Use a Gevey, anything past 1.59.00 is not unlockable (and may never be.) I personally went with vanilla 4.3.1 and the new 4.10.01 baseband.
