    Hey guys, i recently bought an iphone 4 from apple that came preloaded with 4.1 firmware. I have t-mobile and need to unlock it for everything to function but since this iphone has the new baseband should i return it and buy one off ebay with 4.0.1/4.0.2 or keep the one i currently have and wait it out?

    4.1 is the current firmware, so its only common sense that it will come with it.

    Now sure why you are expecting it to come with an older firmware. If you wanted older firmware you should have ordered the iphone before 4.1 launched.

    Well, originally i was not even planning on buying an iPhone. I was going to buy the ipt4g but figured carrying that and the phone would become irritating so decided to get an iPhone. And i decided to take my chances since whenever i bought consoles, software and hardware versions varied widely even if the latest version came out, apparently that does not apply to apple

    Nope, Apple always uses the latest firmware on their device. I'll never understand how they update them so quickly before even selling them..

    so much for giving choice to the customer.... just out of pure speculation how long would guys predict it takes to unlock the new baseband (ie. how long did it take to unlock the original?)

    Choice? What choice? Most people don't give a damn what firmware they have. As long as it works.
