How to Find iPhone Baseband Version
The baseband is basically the cellular modem of an iPhone, and knowing what the version is for an iPhone baseband can be useful for many reasons.
In fact, knowing which baseband version your iPhone is using can be crucial to seeing if you can unlock your iPhone with a variety of the unofficial unlocking tools available out there, including ultrasn0w or other software unlocks.
Let’s quickly show you how to find the baseband version of an iPhones cellular modem firmware, contained within the iOS settings on an iPhone or cellular iPad:
Find your iPhone Baseband Version
Checking your baseband is really easy, grab your iPhone and do the following:
- Tap on “Settings”
- Tap on “General”
- Tap onto “About”
- Slide down and look next to “Modem Firmware” – these numbers will be your baseband version
For instance, in the screenshot the baseband version is 05.14.02 which makes it compatible with the ultrasn0w unlock for iOS 4.2.1.
We’ve discussed what iPhone baseband is before, it’s just your iPhones cellular modem firmware and you’ll need to know what it is if you plan on using an iPhone unlock.

You can get a valid sim card at your local carrier. You don’t have to activate it after purchase, just stick it in and connect your phone to iTunes. The phone will activate and you can chec in Settings –> General –> About.
