    Alright, so before this new iPhone comes out... I want to be prepared.

    I'd like you guys to tell me if this will work and is a good idea.

    First, I will sell my iPhone for about 300-400$ (it's in great condition with 35$ screen protector + case). I will then wait for the new iPhone to come out, and then upgrade, hopefully paying 300-400$ for the new iPhone with a contract. I will the use this trick to get rid of my new data plan: Get Rid Of Your Forced iPhone Data Plan & Save Money Your Monthly Phone Bill | dollarish

    After that, I will jailbreak my iPhone, paying only 10$ under a family plan.

    Do you guys think this will work?

    Just sell it after the new one comes out. The new one wont be unlocked for months. So keep yours unlockable so it is worth some cash

    The whole problem with that trick is your phone sends your IMEI to ATT periodically. They're going to know you have an iPhone and just stick the data plan right back on.

    Maybe they won't but I'd be sure sometime within that 2 year agreement you get a text message saying you're using an iPhone without an eligible data plan and they're going to automatically add it for you.

    We'll see.
    What makes you think they have had any trouble with the latest BB

    Musclenerd has had trouble with it. Besides i think they are giving up on current bb and working on the newer bb and ramdisk issues

    They have already stated that they are not looking at BB 2.30 and are working on 4.x
    2.30 wouldn't be a problem if it was worth them unlocking but to do so would expose any holes they find. By not doing so they are in a good position to have 4.x unlocked shortly after official release.

    OK - how about if it's unlocked within 2 weeks of release you give me thanks if not I'll give you thanks.

    I only suggest this because no one has ever helped you enough for you to thank them...

    I'm predicting serious hardware updates to delay a jailbreak on the new iphone. Keep in mind apple has gone as far as calling jailbreaking illegal.
