It appears that Apple may have been telling the truth about unlocked iPhones and the software update not playing nice together. Jonathan Seff over at iPhone Central shares his tale – in which even a new SIM card couldn’t resurrect is iBrick. Even though some Apple Geniuses may be quietly unbricking iPhones, I have to say I still don’t think it’s worth it. I’d ride out my contract and then pull the trigger (unless you’re with Sprint – then I can totally understand wanting to get out).
What about you TAB readers? Has anyone successfully updated with an unlocked iPhone? Here’s your opportunity to brag!
