Ultrasn0w Permanently Unlocks The iPhone 3G On Baseband 06.15

Here is some good news and possibly some bad news for 3G users. According to @MuscleNerd’s tweet, the Ultrasn0w unlock for baseband 06.15 will be permanent.

Because there’s no 4.3 beta for iPhone3G, it’s effectively unlocked for life via the 06.15 ultrasn0w unlock

However, here is the bad news. This means that iPhone 3G users will not get the iOS 4.3 update and will possibly be locked out of any future updates coming from Apple too.

The iPhone 3G was launched around 3 years ago, so it makes sense for Apple to remove support for the device considering that they might launch the iPhone 5 this year.

So have fun with your unlocked for life iPhone 3G but don’t expect any new goodies from Apple.
