    Question OK confused can you or can't you JB 3.1.3?

    There seem to be conflicting posts about this. The sticky says you can't, yet Spirit JB is mentioned as saying you can. Which is correct?

    I may be taking a 3-month contract job in Germany and AT&T's rates are INSANE ($5.99/month extra AND .99/min). Obviously an unlocked iPhone would save me these charges, but if it can't be done, I'll just have to buy an unlocked phone for the trip.

    Ok the deal is you can Jailbreak Iphone 3.1.3 but you CANNOT unlock 3.1.3. The difference is that Jailbreaking gives you more control over the way your screen looks as well as better fuctions. Unlocking means that you can use a sim card from a different carrier in your iphone. Like I said there currently is no unlock available.

    I do know the difference between JB and unlock. I, of course, need both. Oh well, it looks like I need to buy an unlocked phone for the trip (assuming I get the position).

    Or you can wait till OS 4.0 is out and then maybe they'll be an unlock this is a scenario a lot of people are waiting for(could be months). But if u need an unlock now then yea you'll have to buy an iphone with 3.1.2 on it.

    Nope, won't be buying an unlocked iPhone-not rich enough . I will have to buy something cheaper.

    Completely false. You can unlock 3.13 on 2g, and on some 3g's if the bootloader is 5.8 or less.
