    I plan on buying a factory unlock iphone 4 but i hve a question.
    my friend told me that even if i buy the factoy unlocked iphone still need to unlock it via jailbreaking methods ( like redsnow).Is that true? also my bother has a iphone 3g and restoring or updating it sends it to the emergancy call screen.Will tis same problem happen to my iphone 4 if i restore or upgrade ( baring in mind it is factory unlocked).

    searched the forum and there seems to be 1 relevant question buts its 2 years old so i thought id rather be safe than sorry

    Factory unlocked = unlocked

    You don't need to unlock it using other methods

    it will, but any sim will activate it.

    Also, US only have iPhone on ATT so Apple would not need to sell factory unlocked iPhones so no, cannot buy factory unlocked in US.

    I think your friend was talking about how the iPhone will be unlocked but not Jailbroken.
