    This kid in my school is selling me his iPhone 3G, and I want to turn around and unlock it then sell it on eBay.
    Is 3.1.3 unlockable yet? Also, what information should I ask him? Baseband version / what else? Thanks

    3.1.3 is not unlockable as of yet, just wait untill new iPhone comes out with iOS 4.0. Ask him if the phone has any water damage or if he's ever had problems with it.

    I know for a fact he hasn't. But I heard theres a way to downgrade the baseband if it has a specific bootloader? Would the bootloader version be in settings so he could check it easily?

    The only way to dowgrade it is through Fuzzyband from Cydia. But in order for that to work he need bootloader 5.08 and very few iPhones were made with it. I think the only way to check that is if you use a pc. If he''s already jailbroken just get fuzzyband and it will automatically check it.
