It seems that the wifi issue is one that affects all smartphones and is packet sniffing.
The fix that is in OS4.2, Find My Iphone, allows for the iPhone to be remotely wiped if it is lost or stolen. This has been possible if you have a Mobile Me account since the 3gs was launched in 2009 - it is now available to everyone.
You could write what I know about mobiles on a pinhead but I bought myself an iPhone 4 in Bangkok several months ago after my existing mobile was stolen. At the time the iPhone4 was still not officially available in Thailand so what I purchased was one origially from the USA and it was unlocked so I could use it PAYG with the local 1 to Call provider.
I arrived back in the UK a month or so ago and switched my PAYG SIM card to my Orange PAYG one which the Thai people had cut down for me free. It worked well and I have no problems.
However everytime I plug it in to my PC it tells me that new software is available but I don't download this as I have been told it will relock my phone. Is this true or just scareware. The problem I would have if it was relocked is that I have no idea who the original provider would have been in the USA and I don't want to end up with the preverbial block of glass.
Any help would be much appreciated. I really don't use my phone much in the UK and I don't want to enter into any contracts.
Hi Beta Yes there is an application called Cydia on my phone but I already knew my phone was jailbroken. What I really wanted to know is what would happen if I updated to the latest apple software as I have no idea which phone company in the USA the phone would have been connected with.
