In this article we have warned all interested users to jailbreak your iPhone andall’Unlock, informing them that, currently, there are tools and programs that canperform these two operations on the new firmware 4.3. Therefore, for this type ofusers, it is very important not to upgrade software. To be sure to avoid any problem inthis way, you can follow this tutorial.

There are two steps: the first involves the installation of a tweak via Cydia, and therefore requires a jailbroken iPhone, the second, however, can be performed on the original terminals. Let’s see how to proceed.
