    Hopefully earlier. :D Or if it is 12 midnight let it be EST. I'm in Mountain time, so it would come earlier in the evening for me. :)

    It doesn't matter, as long as you have internet, no matter where you are you can download it from cydia.

    New Year's Eve. So if December 31st is New Year's Eve, then I'd say a guesstimate would be around 2PM Eastern Time US would be a good choice; however, they could go with 0:00:01AM Dec 31st....

    lol, the intrigue for many 3G owners...

    A software unlock. One with just software. As opposed to a hardware unlock; the original required soldering and current 3G unlocks require a TurboSIM.
