    Jeesh.:rolleyes:
    Go ahead and buy an unlocked iPhone, you can always restore. Restoring will lock the phone but give you your warranty back.

    Wait, if it's factory unlocked, then your warranty won't be void, because it was unlocked by Apple.
    The Apple rep who talked to probably mistook you Wonder why for an iPhone that you unlocked yourself, which indeed does void your warranty.
    Restoring a factory unlocked iPhone (Like in your case) won't lock it again, sorry for the confusion.

    If your unsure of unlocking/jailbreaking/hacking/programming the iPhone, then just don't do it. It will be more pain then it's worth. I would read up a bit, especially in regards to unlocking the phone yourself.

    If you are talking about the 3rd one then why are you worry about anything?
    It's officially unlock by Apply, therefore warranty will NOT be void. USA does not officially sell factory unlock iPhone because of the deal Apple makes with AT&T. Don't get too frustrated and go read the forum a bit more before asking anything.

    Apple will cover it under warranty if something goes wrong with it.
    They wont know its unlocked or not if you bring it into an Apple store with an AT&T sim in it.
    But again they'll replace it and give you another Iphone that is obviously locked to AT&T.
    Thats offcourse if you're returning it into a USA Apple store.
    Apple Stores in the US dont supply/sell factory unlocked Iphones even if you explained them you bought it from another country.

    Its a little hard understanding what you're trying to say.
    You dont like the AT&T logo on the top left of the iphone?
    If you put an AT&T simcard inside your iphone it will display the same.

    i understand now thank you for your reply .

    Also i though if i purchase iphone unlock world that could upgrade any firmware without lock but that not really work at this time because if we're going upgrade high firmware but the hardware still the same which is iphone still slow not gotta work speed like new 32 GB iphone 3gs so i might buying iphone from apple then unlock at home cheaper
