sorry for being naive, but i was wondering what this meant. i used ibrickr to install third party apps on my phone so is that the same as a unlocked phone? if not what's the difference? i was wondering this because i read on some previous threads that if you have an unlocked phone and update to 1.1.1, it messes your phone up bad. something about shutting down your sim card and making your phone worthless. pretty scary stuff. if i decide to update and give up my third party apps should i be worried that my phone could be turned into an expensive paperweight? any info will be appreciated. thanks guys.
