For all those unlockers, please remember that if you are on 4.2.1 it can run only tethered, which means if you reboot you will need your mac / windows to run redsn0w to boot into your device.
For all others it should run untethered.

When doing jailbreak, there is an checkbox in redsn0w to use custom boot logos. You can use that.

I reply often, i aint an expert. But if you are getting, get the 4. Unlock should come out soon according to dev team community. But yes latest firmware's are stuck, so when you switch ON check for firmware version, if its OLD, just hand on. And never ever click the update pop up from iTunes.

My friend here has been happily using his software-unlocked iPhone 4 running on 4.0 for more than two months now. If your phone will have 4.2, you're gonna have to wait.

I went with the 3GS as well when I had to choose between the two, but that's only because I have an iPod for backup and don't care much for added capacity, so an 8GB iPhone 3GS was just fine for me. You decide, the iPhone 4 can be worth the extra money sometimes, depends on what you want from a phone.

And yes, since June '10 the 16GB 3GS has been discontinued. With the launch of the iPhone 4, the 3GS 8GB was also introduced into the market and that's the only new one you can get right now.
Appreciate the help. But if one picks up from the store today, wont it be with the latest firmware.

Also how much is the 8 GB 3GS costing? Somehow I am getting inclined towards the 3GS.

Thanx a lot for the reply. So sooner or later the unlock will be out and I wont be struck with an iPod . I am getting inclined towards the 3GS but will wait to take a final call based on the availability in the store.

if possible don't buy from store. i have 2 iphone 4 from store, one is unlocked by att which is a no-comittment phone and another under 2 yrs contract can't be unlocked by them and it comes with 4.1.

better to get brand new or like new pieces from craigslist. most are unlocked and jailbreaked.

I would say, that's even better. find a couple of guys with iphone 4. call them, arrange meeting on same day/same time/next day any time and get it done and over with.

process done and over with in half and hour. just did a similar deal for iphone 3g for my friend - deal done in 10 mins, paid $140, asking was $180. second deal was of HTC Fuze - deal done in 15 mins, paid $120 asking was $160 for my sister.

both devices were like new - no scratches, unlocked, screen protector and case.

would advice though to keep a keen eye. depends a lot on who the seller is. in my case both turned out to be school going guys.

Just some general info. Factory Unlocked iPhone 4 are available pretty easily in the U.A.E Works out to approx Rs. 30k. Unfortunately all phones being sent officially by Apple to the Middle East have Facetime deactivated. Only way to use Facetime is to JB.

I bought factory unlocked iPhone from Canada and it came to CAD 880 (including taxes). The Facetime gets activated once your SIM get activated and it doesnt require JB. I'm using Factime from here (chennai) to talk with my brother and friends.

Am planning to buy the iPhone 4 from Abu Dhabi - what will be the price for a 16g out there - Jailbroken etc. etc.? Will I face any issues in using it in India?

I have mentioned the price in my previous post. If you buy a JBed one, no issues, but like any JB iPhone, you cannot install iOS updates until they are cracked.
