just wondering, i've requested a network unlock from my carrier and they say it will be process within 2 days - (they send a code then i connect to itunes and it's unlocked)

does anybody know if, after it's unlocked by apple, can i jailbreak and still keep the unlock?

it's iphone 4 running 4.3 on baseband 4.10.1?

Absolutely, once factory unlocked always factory unlocked, it will never change, jailbreak without issue and forget about baseband talk for ever.

You'll probably get a text message then you connect and you're unlocked, that's what happened with one of my older iphones, are you in the UK?

Close enough, I'm in Ireland, that's what they said - I'd get a text, connect to iTunes and I'm unlocked!

Just hoping it works now, been using an OLD nokia since I got rid of my Galixy S because I just assumed you could unlock any iPhone.. I was very wrong :D

Of course it will work, I had one unlocked by o2-uk in less that 24hrs, just sit and wait for that text message.

Make sure to update to 4.3.1 and then jailbreak with Redsn0w, very easy, but if you have W7/Vista make sure to run as admin and in XP compatibility mode, if you're OSX, then no worries, coz it just works.....flawless.

No they don't hide it from you, that would be illegal, check your providers website and they should have it written up whether they officially unlock or not.
