    My friend gave me his old iPhone 2g and his old 3G and I wanna use the 2g as my phone. I have tmobile. I restored the phone when I got it and now I have to activate it which I didn't know about. My dad has AT&T for his blackberry and I was wondering if I could use that to activate it and then jailbreak and unlock it. Can this be done?? If so how. And I'm not due if this is the right forum but what ever.

    My sister has a iPhone 2G so I am very familiar with this process. First of all, what firmware is the iPhone running?

    I believe it's on the latest firmware that the 2g iPhone can run. I restored and update it so it should be on 3.1.3 I believe. But I can't check since it says install valid sim card.

    If you updated it on the latest firmware it should be 4.0. But if you havent updated it between July and Now it should be on 3.1.3. Do you remember when it was last updated?

    No my friend thought it had been broken for like 3 years. And 4.0 does not work on an iPhone 2g ibeleive. It was last updated yesterday when I restored it.
