Aug 13th 2010 10:39AM @ProfessorJordan Yes if you have anything below 4.0.2 you should download this patch. The poster above me is incorrect
Aug 13th 2010 10:37AM @Unfwithable Do you have MobileTerm version 426? If it's older or the one in Cydia, it's not compatible with iOS4.
You can always SSH via OSX Terminal or Putty and change password that way. (Faster anyway)

If you purchase it at full price from Apple Stores, they are fully unlocked forever.
If you purchased it at subsidized price from carrier, it will be locked
Unfortunately, if you purchased it at full price from carrier, they will be locked as well.
So if you want a real fully unlocked forever iPhone in Canada, just order it from Apple directly
Jul 30th 2010 1:41PM @HellsChicken I think the point of getting unlocked phones is for ease of travel and you can just pop foreign simcard in there... unless you love roaming charges
Jul 30th 2010 12:49PM @JohnnyDiggMe I'm your opposite... I was actually thinking to import Canada fully unlocked iPhone 4 to the US but the fact that the white won't be coming until later this year just sealed it for me. Why get $700 phone with blah Black color. So I pulled the trigger and get the crappy US version with AT&T.
Next year i'll get white fully unlocked iPhone 5 :)
Jul 30th 2010 12:40PM Okay so
Full price from Apple Store -> fully unlocked
Subsidized from carriers -> locked
Full price from carriers -> locked
this is... news??????????

Jul 9th 2010 9:23PM You are 100% right.

Jun 15th 2010 11:34PM @ys Indeed.... I mean there is nothing wrong with selling the iPhone without contract and unlocked yourself (Apple) yet still partner with carriers to provide the locked subsidized price.
It's a very successful model all over the world and I cannot fathom why this never gets implemented in the US. Seems like in this country the choices are:
1. You go alone (ala Nokia) and sell the phone at full price ONLY and fail miserably
2. Bow down and kiss the feet of carriers and sell your phone locked to them.
These carriers need to be taught some lesson that they are just a dumbpipe and stop dictating what can we use with their network. I mean, I will be very upset if National Grid (my electric provider) told me that I can't use certain brands of Microwave, Fridge, or TV that's been tested and conformed with local regulations.
Jun 15th 2010 9:48PM @Bacchus027 If you bought iPhone 4, you will need to cut your simcard to MicroSIM size... and make sure you have dataplan too otherwise you will get charged terribly lol
