    Alright, currently I'm on a 3GS unlocked and on T-Mobile, with a jailbreak on it as well. I'm running on iOS 4.2.1 I need some help with the fact that, if I upgrade it to iOS 5, when it comes out, will I be able to unlock it again, so that I can still use it on T-Mobile? I don't mind losing my jailbreak items, I've only got a few apps and themes and a couple of cydgets. I can just re-download those if needed. I guess this is kind of confusing.. If I upgrade my iPhone to iOS 5 when it comes out, will I be able to unlock/jailbreak it again? If you could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

    The devs will have to create a new unlock. No telling how long that could take. If you want to remain unlocked I suggest not upgrading to os 5 until an unlock has been announced.

    Yes use sn0wbreeze to preserve your baseband. It will be a tethered jailbreak though

    As you might be guessing, the jb and unlock are two separate but related issues. The most important thing for you to know is this: DO NOT UPDATE VIA ITUNES. Reason being, your unlock (unless you're using a Gevey SIM) relies on your phone having an older baseband, and if you update in iTunes your baseband will get updated to a version that cannot be unlocked.

    There are tools/programs that will help you update without changing your baseband. (See above posts.) Best bet: check in again when you're ready to update.

    Thanks for the answers. Now that iOS 5 is out, I'm looking for someone to really confirm what I'm asking. If I update my phone right now, will I be able to JB/Unlock it?
    iPhone 3GS
    MC model
    Currently on version 4.3.3
    And my baseband is 06.15.00
    Thanks ahead of time.
