    Will Rebooting my unlocked iphone lock it?
    I recently purchased an unlocked iphone from ebay. LOVE my iphone!! I was using cydia and downloaded this mms app and after it loaded it said I would have to reboot my iphone. If I reboot my iphone will it lock my iphone again? Also is there a way to remove cydia?

    No it will not lock the phone. The only way to remove cydia is to restore the phone, which will also remove every jailbroken app you have.

    so i am confused... unlocking enables any to use it with any carrier.. while jailbreaking it allows pirated software.. if you hit restore in itunes will it make it clean, like from the factory or will it still be unlocked but not jailbroken?

    You will need to put your iPhone into restore mode.

    Hold home button down then plug your iPhone. Wait till you see the iTunes logo.

    you should be able to jailbreak it yourself, and unlock it yourself.

    Use redsn0w 0.8 and ultrasn0w 0.9
