Has anyone figured this out yet? Youtube is full of good info on jailbreaking it with RedSn0w...and if I google it, I get a bunch of slick websites claiming to do it for $20-$30 but I question their authenticity.

I do need it unlocked. Who knows what ?

Just to clarify are you wanting to unlock or jailbreak?

I was able to preserve my baseband to update to iOS 5 but I can not get the gevey sim with t-mobile to work any suggestion?

I am running baseband 0.4.10.01

The gevey sim is the ultra pro but the cydia app furious mod is not working

Jailbreaking lets you install applications that are not approved by Apple. Many of these applications can be very helpful but they will unfortunately never make it to the App Store due to Apple’s restrictions. You can also used "cracked" versions of many App Store apps, essentially making them free.

The main reason to unlock your iPhone is if you want to use it with a different service provider (ie T-Mobile). An unlocked iPhone also has a better resell value.

Right i've done a lot of research about unlocking ios5 and here are the facts...

1: You can unlock ios4 no problem
2: You can jailbreak ios5 no problem
3: You can only unlock io5 if you don't update to ios5 via the standard iTunes update and instead upgrade using a patched ios5 that preserves the baseband. If you update via standard iTunes update then the baseband will be updated and there is no downgrade for the baseband as of yet, so once it has been updated normally there is no going back and no chance of unlocking until ultrasn0w or another app is updated to include the newest baseband.

Hope this makes sense

Have a look at this thread that Apple is looking at Apple is working to port Siri back to the iPhone 4.

Rumor: Apple privately testing backport of Siri to iPhone 4
