    Hey guys, i got an iphone 3g, here are the specs


    3g iphone (fido is a canadian carrier)
    firmware 4.2.1 (bc148)
    baseband 05.15.04
    bootloade. 5.9_m3s2
    running windows 7

    So i've been told I need to jailbreak redsnow, upgrade my baseband to use ultrasnow to unlock. But if i do this i will sacrifice my gps. I realy dont want to give that up, since i use my phone pretty often to find directions.
    Just want to get another opinion, Is there any other options of JB and unlocking and keeping my gps? what about using green poisin or snowbreeze?

    thanks.

    The jailbreak is not what causes that it the upgrading the baseband in order to unlock if your planning on switching carriers then that is your option since your phones baseband has already been updated to one that can't be unlocked

    I don't think everyone loses gps it's just a possibility other option is grevy sim that's a hardware unlock but I dont think that's the best way
