    correct.....I am new the Iphone stuff.... I am a Blackberry user..and I carry a 32gb touch...
    What I am asking about is a 2g 8gb iphone i bought for my son. I know nothing about iphones... can I not even sync with Itunes and use it for music.. or put his current sim card into it.... when i plug into Itunes with no sim card in phone... it tells me ,,,, I need "ORIGINAL SIM" in the phone to do anthing....is there a way around this... unlock, jailbreak, etc etc... at this point i cant even restore....without it asking for "orginal sim"

    Well then, welcome to the jailbreaking world. May I ask if you know what firmware it is on?
