    i want to get a 16gb iphone (most likely will be 1.1.3 OTB).
    my orange contract isn't up until november, so i guess i will need unlock it to use on my orange contract.

    few questions.

    i assume ZiPhone will be the tool to use to unlock it for other networks? does this downgrade any functions?

    what features won't i have access to if using my orange sim?

    i'm not interested in installing 3rd party apps.. does unlocking also jailbreak it ?

    once november comes, would i be able to restore the iphone back to factory and then treat it like it was brand new unactivated and go to O2?

    thanks for any answers.

    1. Yes, no
    2. I believe you will loose visual voicemail. Without a data plan internet and such would only be availible using WiFi.
    3. Yes
    4. Yes

    do i lose anything by the bootloader being downgraded (assuming that ziphone does this)

    is there anything else i should be aware of?

    how do you restore it back to the way it was OTB ?

    also, is it better to use iJailBreak 0.5.3 or the ZiPhone2.4 package ?

    through my personal experience, ZiPhone 2.4 works better. iJailbreak left me with YouTube not working, While ZiPhone worked perfectly. although others have had both work like a charm.
