If you are waiting anxiously for the upcoming iPhone 3.0 firmware update – due to be released tomorrow – but concerned that it will relock your iPhone, you need not fear (too much). @MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team announced on twitter that he would be airing a demo of an unlocked iPhone running on the new software.
Earlier it was reported that the iPhone was jailbreakable but not yet unlockable. This latest twitnouncement should mean that those of you who own iPhone’s originating from the US or other countries with carrier restrictions will be able to continue using the device with either China Mobile or China Unicom, while still reaping the benefits of the improved features of the firmware update such as landscape on-screen keyboard and cut-and-paste functionality.
