    You can safely upgrade to 3.0, your phone will remain unlocked. Keeping your phone activated is another story. I figured out that your phone will remain activated if you update a phone that was activated using pwnage tool, quickpwn will not keep your phone activated when you update.

    when the firmware is released on June 17, the Dev-team will just rewrite Quickpwn to support 3.0. remember, the baseband for a 1st gen iPhone remains the same on 3.0.

    If you buy your iPhone w/o a contract, you can use any ol' AT&T SIM card in the iPhone 3G, whether it includes a Data Plan or not

    yeah. i tried restoring to 3.0. but it won't get past the activation screen. going back to 2.2.1 until a quickpwn is written for 3.0. unless there is a way to bypass this nasty activation screen
