    Make sure to back it up, before doing the update.

    Did you buy it unlocked, or tied to a carrier?

    I'm sorry, but I'm not sure how that works. Hopefully someone that does will pop in.

    1-be sure to backup
    2-be sure if your iphone factory locked, you only can use factory micro sim
    3-there is teather jailbreak with unlock if you want
    4-most important---- if you want unlock please update your iphone without upgrading baseband

    If your dealer unlocked it , it's not factory unlocked. Update to 5.0 and it will lock it.

    That signifies that your phone was not unlocked through a jailbreak. Keep in mind that outside of the US, it's much easier to purchase an unlocked iPhone, or even have your carrier unlock it for you.

    If I were you I might try talking to the place that did your first unlock. I don't mean any offense, but it seems like there are some parts that you aren't entirely sure about (every phone has a baseband, for instance, but which one it has can mean the difference between locked/unlocked--yours is listed in Settings>General>About>Modem Firmware).

    Updating and keeping an unlock isn't always easy if your phone isn't factory unlocked. Do you know offhand if your dealer used a Gevey SIM?

    My modern firmware is 4.10.01

    And im using a normal micro sim and not a gevey sim.

    How can i find out whett it is unlocked or not. I lost all my contact with dealer.
