Hi, I am new to this forum so please excuse anything I may say that sounds a bit stupid but I am not very technically minded.

I have got an iPhone 3gs ios version 4.1. The phone was locked to Vodafone and I asked them to unlock it which they did. I connected the phone to iTunes and it said congratulations your phone is now unlocked. My new Tesco sim card was accepted and the phone works fine. I have tried to download some apps but they all seem to need a higher version of the ios. iTunes says there is an update for my phone ios version 6. I need to know if I update my phone to this version will my phone still be unlocked and also will the phone continue to work properley. Hope someone can help.


Thanks DaveB

iPhone 3GS, iOS 4.1, Unlocked by Vodafone
