    Hello all,

    I need to buy an iphone 4 for my wife, needs it to be able to be used in China later on, in other words, I need it to be unlocked. I have not follow on the status of iphone unlock. I'v just heard only iphone with certain old baseband can be unlocked? If I buy a locked version of iphone 4 right now, is there a good chance that software unlocking method will be out soon?

    If buying a new one then probably not. Your best bet would be to pay for a officially unlocked one.

    The supposed 8GB iPhone 4 being released tomorrow should be somewhat affordable unlocked - around $400 or so.

    Unlocked 8G iphone 4 is $550+tax on Canadian's apple website, there is really no point buying that as 16G iphone 4S is $650+tax :(

    Correct. A new iPhone 4 sold now will not have the 01.59.00 baseband. Software unlock is not possible after that baseband.


    No. The best solution is the Gevey Ultra unlock. It's $25-$30.
