    Default Update Question?

    I currently have a 3gs on 4.01 and it is has been jail broken via the the jailbreakme.com route, it's on an 02 contract and I recently used there free unlock policy. The phone has now been unlocked officially by them and I have tested it working all ok.

    Now I would like to update to 4.1 because I think it may cure a Wifi problem I am experiencing however I know that when I update then the baseband is also updated, I know I could go down the route of umbrella and all that but just trying to keep it simple.
    So if the phone has already been carrier unlocked officially then is this update going to lock it back to 02?


    Regards

    Well I bit the bullet and the result was good ......

    Updated to 4.1 via Itunes and jail Break with Limerain and all is fine, tried Orange sim and 02, so it appears that an official unlock remains unlocked.

    Once a phone has been unlocked via a code it stays unlocked. If the phone is patch unlocked (software patch) then it will become locked again once updated.
