Hi, I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running on iOS 4.0.1, though the firmware installed on ,my iPhone is quite outdated, I have no plan to upgrade it to higher version or to iOS 4.3.3 as I am preserving the baseband of my 3GS form getting upgraded so that I could unlock it in the future without updating its baseband to iPad’s 6.15.00. Anyway, since Apple is likely to release iOS 5 firmware, will I be able to unlock my iPhone 3GS on iOS 5 without updating its baseband?

At the moment, the only solution available to unlock your iPhone 3GS is by updating its baseband to iPad’s baseband, which is the only unlockable baseband available for iPhone 3GS, and then unlock it using Ultrasn0w 1.2.x. But the problem is, the GPS feature of the iPhone will be disabled permanently (since there is no fix available yet). This also means that other iTunes and jailbreak apps that utilized GPS technology will not work on iPhone 3GS with iPad 6.15.00 baseband installed, which includes GMaps, Maps, iGo, and a lot more.
