    I bought an iPhone 3G a while ago locked to O2. I used Ultrasn0w to unlock it so that i could use it with my Orange 3G Contract sim card. Everything works fine.
    But now Orange is official, if i restore my iPhone with the new downloaded firmware will it make it officially Orange - and just jailbreak?
    Are there any pros or cons to become official again?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just try to restore it with the orange SIM in see what happens. Some people have had success when they put the orange SIM in because it downloads the carrier settings. That hasn't happened for some people you may as well try.

    Hmm okay i think i'll give it a go..was hoping for someone who'd done it so i don't mash up my baseband.. oh well.

    Here's what im going to do should anyone else need the info (as i was searching for days)..

    -iPhone 3G 02 - Unlocked for Orange Contract sim working fine (unlocked with unltrasn0w)
    -Connect to itunes, restore with the new firmware, leaving the sim card in the iPhone.
    -Restore
    -????
    --Jailbreak if working..

    :)

    You will be able to get a free unlock with a Simplicity SIM. They just need an O2 phone number and the IMEI of the phone, there's a few people on here who have unlocked iPhones after buying them second hand.
