Well, if you are iOS user who rely on Ultrasn0w carrier unlock, then you probably jailbreak your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS using either PwnageTool 4.3.3 (for Mac Os X users) or with Sn0wbreeze 2.7 in order to preserve the unlockable baseband in order to unlock your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS on its carrier using Ultrasn0w 1.2.3.
