    Hi all!

    I have a locked iPhone 4 to Vodafone UK and have installed the iOS beta (latest version). The phone wasn't unlocked on iOS 4. Is it possible yet to unlock the iPhone on iOS 5?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Will Vodaphone not unlock it for you? O2 will for theirs...

    JB and unlocking is not the same.

    Jailbreak != Unlock. There hasn't been a software unlock available for the iPhone 4 since 4.0.1, if memory serves.

    But since you mention being on a EU carrier, shouldn't they unlock it for you if you request it (not locked in permanently like the US)?

    If I had to guess, I'd say that there will never be another software unlock for the iPhone.
