    Hi all

    First time poster here, so thanks for having me and thanks in advance for any advice I may be given. Hopefuly I'll be a valuable member here!!

    Anyways on to my problem. I have bought a 32GB 3GS off the bay. It was listed as "totaly jailbroken and unlocked" however I'm not sure if it is jailbroken. It's definately unlocked but when the phone arrived it was as if it had just come out of the factory with only the stock apps installed and no cydia or anything else. It's using iOS 4.01 with 05.13.04 baseband.
    Now I had a 3GS last year but it died on me, so I know bits and bats about jailbreaking and unlocking as I've done it before. My question is have things changed, can an iphone be unkocked without being jailbroken and (I know it can from apple and the network )and can a iphone be jailbroken without having cydia or anything like installed or is it probably just not jailbroken, if so can it be?

    Cheers

    iPhones can be jailbroken without having Cydia installed. They cannot be unlocked (save factory and Carrier-requests) without being jailbroken.

    Thanks Shawa,

    So is there anyway to determine if it is or isn't?

    Does it make the pixel-y line when you turn it on? (I'm not sure if it does this on all jailbreaks.)

    When I turn my iPod touch on, I get this line of pixels above the Apple logo. This thread has some pictures of it. If it's just related to Jailbreakme, then I can't think of any other ways to find out if it's jailbroken. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302853
