    Default 3GS got raped by my carrier

    So... I was walking from my car to the skytrain whennn... A pop-up came up on my carrier unlocked, jail broken iPhone 3GS. It said "a carrier settings update is now available for your device. Would you like to update? 'update' or 'not now'"

    I looked at it for a few minutes contemplating this before I decided its probably not spyware, cause the last thing I downloaded was flipboard a week ago, and figured maybe it would improve my intermittent signal on the skytrain. Wellll...

    Now my 3GS gets frozen as soon as I open up a keyboard, regardless of app. I can close the app (hit home button, even bring down the notification screen still) and resume, but keyboard is unusable no matter what. And if I flip over to spotlight search it freezes and resprings five minutes later and I can't do anything.

    I'm gonna try reinstalling custom iOS 5.01 and using the new untether jb when I get home tonight. Hopefully it will work after....

    If I remember correctly, you are not supposed to update settings on an unlocked device.
