    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to upgrading/jailbreaking, and I didn't know where else to go. I'll try explain things as best as I can.

    I bought my iPhone 4s off a friend who had got it on a plan (billpay). He stopped paying the bill, so the company blocked the phone. The phone is still useable, but it needs to be jailbroken to work.
    The phone is currently jailbroken, and is running iOS 5.

    My question is, is there a way to update the iOS to iOS6, keeping in mind that it needs to be jailbroken to operate.

    No way to upgrade other than to 6.1.3 and no way to jailbreak. If its already jailbroken, what's the issue?

    Probably just wants the iOS 6 features, and the apps that won't run on pre-iOS 6 firmware.

    Basically what this says:

    It's just, the phone NEEDS to be jailbroken to operate. If I restore the phone or anything, it wont work unless I rejailbreak it.
    But, I was wondering if I could get some help on how to do that, or if it's possible.
    My theory was, restore the phone (meaning it wouldn't work) and update it via iTunes, then rejailbreak from there. Would that work? (Keeping in mind, as soon as I restore the phone, it wont operate, it'll just say "connect to iTunes" on the phone)

    No, because the 4S cannot be jailbroken on current firmware.

    Perhaps due to a SIM based unlocking solution?

    exactly what this dude said.

    So, basically, there's no way for me to upgrade to 6.1.2 even? (I know 6.1.3 is out but as far as I know evasi0n is only 6.1.2)

    Even if you restored the 4S to iOS 6.x.x it has to be activated in order to jailbreak it so your stuck on iOS 5

    since you asked the same question a third time, let's change the answer /rolls eyes
