im not sure but i don't think it matters what version of iTunes you have as long as its compatible with iPhone i thought it had to be 7 something to work for iPhone. And another thing your going to want to get an iPhone with 1.1.1 or lower for it to work with tmobile

yes thanks for the quick response... yes i was reading the other threads and found out i cant unlock the new fimware 1.1.2..:( unless i have 1.1.1.. so the way u can tell is to look on the box and the 4th n 5th number should be lower than 46 and thats 1.1.1 fimware?

Geez I hope not! I assume the firmware updates are the same as the iPod where iTunes asks you if you want to upgrade and you can either accept or decline?

so if its 46 youre screwed right? my sister just picked one up for me after mine bit it at the beach and its a 46. is there anything that can be done to use the phone besides using att which doesn't exist in the country I live?

um... that would be a negative unless you wanna hardware unlock which i wouldn't recommend unless your good with a soldering gun or on ebay look for turbo sim
