    Right here's one to make you giggle from here in Abu Dhabi.

    Long time Nokia user, previous phones were N95, then the N97.

    After a couple of months of trying to love the N97 in spite of the lack of any real support for the Mac, I got rid of it and bought a jailbroken 3gs at a local supermarket here in Abu Dhabi.

    Took the said phone home, and of course, being a total noob, I upgraded to the dreaded 3.1. Then I realised that the phone was locked to AT&T in the States, and I was frigged.

    So, I restored the phone & took it back to the supermarket & claimed that it wasn't sim-free as sold & managed to get a replacement from the blissfully ignorant folk in customer service!

    Woo hoo!!

    Now the scary part. My Mac was responsible for upgrading the last 3GS to 3.1 and although I have learned my lesson, I don't want to connect the new phone to the Mac and find that it upgrades it automatically (the 3.1 firmware might be cached somewhere?)

    Should I format the Mac to be on the safe side, or will I simply get a dialogue box asking me if I want to make the same mistake again?

    You can go into where iTunes stores the firmwares and delete 3.1. You should always be prompted before an upgrade

    Do you know where that might be on the Mac, and what its filename might be?
