My friend has a V1 iPhone, on 2.2.1 with modem firmware (baseband) of 04.05.04_G. He asked me if he can unlock it either via software or with a rebel sim card. (He's T-Mobile, btw). I did a search, but saw a few different things and I don't know what to tell him anymore. Can it be unlocked either way? TIA.

Hasn't that been the V1 baseband since OS 2.0 and I'm pretty sure you can unlock it with quickpwn.

Oh okay, I wasn't sure about the baseband thing, thanks. So the 3G is the only iPhone on 2.2.1 that can't be unlocked via QuickPwn?

yeah, 2.2.1 can be unocked on the v1. Check out this thread particularly the post by GADeputy, in case he gets an invalid SIM error.

Thanks a ton. Just unlocked.

It did all the bootneuter flashing and all that stuff.. If he were to "Erase all Content and Settings" would it mess up the unlock?

I don't think so, but am not sure. Never had a V1 and since I'm on AT&T and don't plan on leaving have never considered unlocking anyway.
