    Hey guys.
    Just bought an unlocked (factory unlocked) iPhone 3G~ (I live in NZ)

    Does that mean that I can jailbreak and update without worrying about anything?

    Just make sure you do not activate with pwnage or quickpwn. It will lock the phone. When it brings up a box that asks "Do you have a contract that would normally be activated with itunes" click yes.

    Yeah I did some research. Apparently, out of all the countries which sells unlocked phones, NZ is the cheapest!

    Thats not true, once an iPhone is hardware unlocked it cannot be reversed so it will always be unlocked no matter what you do to it
