    So as some of you may know the unlock for the 3G iPhone will be released new years spurning the cat & mouse game again. I just got an iPhone 3G and im contemplating whether to unlock it or not. I have a legit account and the only reason im considering unlocking it is purely for resale value. Unlocked phones fetch more money

    But is it worth it to deal with the hassle of waiting for a patch to each official update and the associated risk of bricking?

    How about not unlocking and only doing it before you sell it?

    I totally agree. Why unlock it now if you have no need to do so?

    I would only worry about unlocking it when you are going to sell it. Untill then keep updating your phone through pwnage tool so you don't update the baseband and still have the ability to unlock it in the future if you choose to do so. It will definitely increase the resell value. :D
