    Ok I have an iPhone 3GS I bought it from where i live Syria.
    So I am not sure if it is factory unlocked or normally unlocked.. so I want to jailbreak using spirit but i am afraid my unlock will disappear... So here is the info about my iPhone:

    Iphone 3gs
    3.1.3
    MC model
    05.12.01
    Sim: MTN (South Africa)

    Also I heared that from Serial number 3rd 4th and 5th number can tell about factory unlocked or not if it is higher than 940

    Mine is 942...

    So anyway to know if my iPhone is Factory unlocked or not???

    I read a while ago in an old thread that Syria and other 42 contries started selling the unlocked iPhones some time in 2007. I would say that they are still unlocked but I can't say for sure.

    I would say if it's on 3.1.3 and the BB is 5.12 then it is factory unlocked because there is no unlock for BB 5.12
