    I am in Dubai & bought an unlocked iphone locally with a ver 1.1.4 (4A102), as I want to upgrade to version 3.0, pls adv me the actual steps to do so without getting locked. Importantly, need to take a back up of my contacts & notepads.

    If you're on the old firmware you can't backup the notes through syncing. You have to explore the phone with Iphone Explorer(Mac) or DiskAid(Windows) or SSH in to the phone. The notes are stored in one notes.db file in the following location


    The contacts should be synced through iTunes, just click no when you're prompted to upgrade the firmware when you connect to iTunes. After you do the sync right click the phone in the left column of iTunes and select Backup to backup the phone. In order to get info on Jailbreak and unlocking the phone we need to know which OS is on your computer? Mac or Windows?

    You should have said it wasn't legit unlocked.

    Are you sure you went to 3.0?
