    OK I had posted earlier about info on jailbreaking. And I thank you whomever helped me.

    Now I have come with more questions.

    After Jailbreaking an iphone you can unlock it so it can be used on any carrier. I plan on putting a pay as you go type card in and use that service. Now when you jailbreak and you turn off the phone you have to plug it into your computer again to turn it on so its re jailbroken.

    Now jailbreaking isn't my focus its the unlocking so I can use another SIM card.

    Could I turn off my phone and turn it back on and still use it just not jail broken but still unlocked or am I SOL?

    Edit:

    Im also buying a phone outright. Now buying one outright cause it to cost a pretty penny but doesn't have me locked into a contract.

    Is it already unlocked and i have been thinking about this way to hard or is it locked.

    You need to JB before you unlock. So why would your iPhone have unlock when your JB is gone? So you are expecting the unlock to stay there after your iPhone is not JB? Come on... use your common sense.

    Well you are talking to somewhat of an idiot. I have my moments where I ain't bright :D.
    Anyhow so your saying if I were to buy one outright it isn't unlocked? Because some people have theirs officially unlocked after their contract was done and I was wondering if this was the case if you to buy one outright.

    There is not enough information for what you are asking. Where are you buying your iphone? Buying at different places would end up with different answer. If you are to buy iphone officially unlock then why worry about unlock.
