    Default Unlock Unactivated 4S- Europe

    Im thinking of buying an unactivated 4S,still in the box,locked to the Vodafone network in Ireland.As im moving to Australia at the start of January I really need to be able to unlock it.

    Is there an unlock for what i'm assuming will be the latest software update form apple as when i activate itll download the latest iOS.

    Been a while since i done an unlock(iPhone 3G) so forgive my ignorance

    Thanks in advance

    There isn't even a jailbreak for the 4S at this point. You would be doing yourself a favor just buying an unlocked phone to start with since you know you're moving, but you don't know when or if a jailbreak and unlock will be available for the 4S.

    Nope, there's no jailbreak and unlock for the 4s. You have two options:
    Get Vodafone to unlock the phone or get another phone.
    There's a jailbreak that will be coming with the launch of iOS 5.1, but no one knows when this will happen. Moreover there's absolutely no telling when ultrasn0w will be able to unlock the 4S.
