Default iPhone 3GS Firmware Check

Is there any way to check iPhone 3GS firmware without taking out of package?

I have a new iPhone but im not sure how to check the firmware before taking it out of the package. I dont want to take it out and found out i cant jailbreak it.

Thanks.

90% sure all new ones are 3.13, if you know when it was sent you might be able to guess more accurately...other than that no, not as far as I know.

Mine, when I got it 2 months ago, was 3.1.2.

But to answer your question, I think you have to power it up to check the installed firmware.

I have 3.1.3 Firmware with 05.12.01 baseband and was able to jailbreak it, though the process was a bit more involved than your regular "Run a program and shazam".

I'm 90% sure it will be 3.1.2. A friend bought one today and it came with 3.1.2.
