Foreign iPhone, still impossible to update software?

My brother bought an iPhone 3GS in Australia, now living in Belgium with it. He's fine with the old OS version, but soon I'm gonna get it and I wanna know if I can update the OS without it getting all blocked and such (We had to jailbreak it to get it to work normally again after an OS update)

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

check out your iphone status on dev.mk about the lock or unlocked status. if your iphone shows unlocked there then you can update your iphone 3gs to latest 5.1.1 . if you iphone is still locked to carrier the you cannot update the phone. if you update it then you have to do alot of things to unlock it . give me imei of you iphone i will check for you or unlock it if possible . thnx

I've checked the Imei on the site you gave me. It says it's unlocked. If you want to see for yourself: 011982000697116

So if I update it, do I need to jailbreak it?

Because the iPhone is Australian it blocked up when we updated it with the software from the Belgium store.

by

no need to do anything . just update it. software is same for all the iphones . country doesnot matter for software.
