There are a lot of circulating posts around the web about whether or not the iphone can be unlocked after an 1.1.3 update, etc, the answer is YES. Another misconception is that there is no OTB 1.1.3, which is FALSE, the new iphones come preloaded with 1.1.3 OTB (out the box), which does NOT pose any problems with unlocking the iphone, however you cannot unlock the phone in the traditional method. Simply go HERE and download the GUI version of Ziphone (its free of course), and follow the instructions. One small detail that they fail to mention however is that your iphone needs to be plugged into the USB, and into the computer (obviously) , for you to put it into recovery mode, after that give it 20 minutes and viola!, your iphone is unlocked, and there are Sim unlockers in the installer for 1.1.3 that want to change networks.
The 1.1.3 update is WORTH it, previously I had the most shoddy reception, sending a text was impossible without the “E” (EDGE) network icon, as well as numerous call failures even with full bars but no EDGE connection. Thats all changed with the 1.1.3 update, as well as a few updates to the text messenger, and google maps.

Some of the programs like SMBprefs, and Customize, are limited in their capabilities, though parts of the applications work, other parts like changing notification icons, and sounds, seems to do absolutely nothing. This could possibly be an isolated problem but I doubt it.   Sendsong does not work properly as well, the application crashes my iphone upon attempting to open it, sending me back to the home screen, so my ringtones need to be purchased from itunes which in my opinion is a retarded method, and now forces me to pay 99 cents for a ringtone…lame.

Another issue is that I have an alloted 300mb of unidentified data on my iphone in a location I can not delete now, sooOOO when I have some time Ill have to find a way to locate and delete the data and hopefully my iphone will still work 😉
