    HI,
    I own the original 2G iPhone 8G unlocked and jailbroken with T-Mobile USA. After 3.0 is released will there be a good chance that I will be able to update and remain unlocked?

    Haven't seen this while searching the threads.

    Depends on what the Dev Team can do after public release.

    Their site states that it is jailbreakable, although they haven't released the software to do so yet.

    thank you! hopefully they will.
    do you think MMS will be able to work? I think the "hardware difference" excuse is BS. :eek:

    I updated my 2G iPhone (Orange UK) to 3.0 and it remained unlocked just fine.

    Officially, no. Unofficially, probably within a few weeks.

    Except in the dozen or so countries in which it will be officially unlocked.

    Absolutely just wait for the official 3.0 to come out alongside the third iPhone.

    The Dev Team should have an unlock for older iPhones within a month or so.

    I wouldn't mind an unlock. I don't begrudge paying a contract, i do however want to be able to use other sums as well.
