o.O

You plug it into iTunes and it will say Version 3.0 is out do you want to download only, install, cancel...

If not you check for updates manually by clicking check for updates on the iphone device main page.

Yes it will change the settings. You should backup your phone and sync your contacts with outlook. 3.0 is known to delete contacts.

Sync contacts: Click iPhone under devices in iTunes > Info tab > Check sync contacts with:

Definatly worth doing, you dont have the app store, you can get lots of games and things, many for free.

Not really. There pretty much indestructible. Serously, you could completely destroy the firmware and just rebuild the whole thing no problem.

Nothing to be worried about if you have all your data on your computer, thats the only thing that could possibly happen really, is you could lose some data. Back everything up that you care to lose!

Its well worth it for the update... You have to do it, theres so many more features and fixes, its a completely different phone.

I just got off the phone with my colleague.  This iPhone was purchase in Central America and was given to me here in the states when my current phone stop working (which i wasn't aware of).  he told me that if I update my iPhone via iTune, it may become damage.  Though he didn't say it, but by the way he talked about it, this phone may have been hakec in CA in order to work and if its true and I update the iPhone, my T-Mobile carrier info may be corrupt or permanent damage.

This being said, is it safe to go about the update?

Also, when backing up, can the firmware be restored prior to any update?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes you are not allowed to have T-Mobile here in the US. And no you cannot roll back to the old software. Well its not very safe. People have been unlocking plenty of newer versions 2.2.1, but I dont think 3.0 was unlocked.

Kinda' not clear on your response.  Based on my last input, do you think I should proceed with upgrade?

Well its really up to you, I dont want to say theres nothing to worry about and you end up not being able to unlock it. I would do research and download an unlocking program (quickpwn i guess) and make sure that it works on 2.2.1 with T-Mobile before you go any further. I think its definitely worth the time though. Theres a million and one new features. But I dont think you can go to 3.0 yet.

Just FYI, T-Mobile is allowed in the US.  Its just I was given this iPhone and I change the sim card.

Ok, just to finalized: as I understand it, in order to have the JPG download to my iPhone, I have to upgrade to 2.2.1.  This process may be probable that my carrier be affected and my phone inoperable unless I find some unlock program to unlock that version.  But I do risk that the new version may make my T-Mobile configuration inoperable.

Am I correct?

T-Mobile is NOT allowed in the US. AT&T is the only legal carrier you can have an iPhone IN THE UNITED STATES. In other countries, there are other providers. You can change the SIM card because someone with an AT&T SIM card already unlocked the phone. 2.2.1 isnt the first version with the image save, it is the newest software that should allow an unlock. You will definitely have to unlock the phone for it to work with T-Mobile, without an unlock, the phone will be unusable with T-Mobile. You might be able to unlock it with your friends SIM card and just put yours back in after upgrade!

Understood and you are right, its not allowed.  I thought you meant T-Mobile as a carrier.  Understood.

To finalized, the process of unlock is after the upgrade?

Yes, the jailbreak and/or unlock will be removed with every update. The pwnage tool says it unlocks iPhone 2G 3.0. Ive tried pwnage for jailbreak and it didnt work so I would be careful there.
