    It will not be unlock-able unless they have a surplus of older phones. More than likely it will have 3.1 installed on it - and that is not able to be unlocked at this time (due to the upgraded baseband).

    It may be un-jailbreakable as well and that is dependent on the bootrom. Check the 3rd, 4th, and 5th number in the serial number; if it is 940 or higher that has the new bootrom; if it is 939 or less it will be jailbreakable but not unlockable.

    So if it was to have a lower firmware version than 3.1, say 3.0, then i can jailbreak it and unlock it yeh ?
