    Have Something To Say ?

      Is this jailbreaking thing possible in India on an iPhone 3GS bought from the US bound with AT&T ?
      Can I then unlock it and use a SIM card of my choice ?

        @Shikher if you buy 3GS now from US it’ll be 3.1 out of box and that is a non jailbreakable at the moment. I suggest you to buy iPhone 3GS from Australia or Italy because they sell factory unlocked iPhones.
