    Hey all,

    since apple released their new firmware 2.2.1 which makes it impossible to unlock your iphone (if not updated using pwnage). I have this question.

    When i'm buying this new iphone (from England or Belgium probably), is it gonna have the new 2.2.1 firmware.

    Thanks in advance

    (please correct me if i'm wrong with the un-unlockable part in my post)

    Most iPhones start with 2.0 or 2.0.1
    I got my iPhone with version 2.0 on it.

    you MIGHT get an iPhone with 2.1 not sure but I know for a fact that you can't get one with 2.2.1

    Bought an iPhone 3G from the UK this Christmas. Firmware 2.2 was out for a month, but mine had 2.1.

    You can downgrade the firmware but not the baseband so yellowsn0w will not work.

    I would say it all depends on wether its old or new stock in the shops, if its old stock then i would say you could get a 2.0 version...
    HOWEVER you'd be going out on a leg.
