is it true that when i connect it to iTunes it will lock itself back to normal? i have AT&T but i cant seem to find locked iPhones or craigslist lol. so i was gonna buy an unlocked one and just connect it to iTunes restore and hopefully it will lock back so i can update to 1.1.1 is this true?

lol i thought it was a bad idea too until, i heard someone say that the phone will lock back to cingular, whats the harm in that right? but does it even lock back to cingular or does it turn into a briick?

my impression is that they are bricked, but i haven't had to deal with it. So, i will stop speculating and let someone who is sure answer your questions.

as an aside, if you are on AT&T already, why are you purchasing an iPhone off of craigslist?

Are you seriously telling us that you cannot find a normal locked iPhone on the Internet...
no i have had an iPhone before and sold it (4gb) because i want a (8GB) and craigslist has the best prices and there unlocked but i don't care about it being unlcked. can u give me sites that will sell iPhones besides Apple then?
