    Hey,

    I was having crazy problems with recovery mode and i finally escaped. I now have an inactivated iphone 3g with 4.1 and a t mobile sim card. I just need some one to point me in the right direction so i dont mess things up again.

    Cheers
    Patrick

    No i purchased this iphone off craigslist and it was all ready on 4.0... Is there a way i can go back to 3.1.3 and jail break it just so it works with my girlfriends t mobile sim card? I have friends who have att sims. If i get one of their sims can i unlock this phone and then use a t mobile card?

    thank You

    you can activate the phone with the sim card, not unlock. you can try downloading the 3.1.3 firmware and shift+restoring to that firmware. might not work tho, give it a shot, worst that could happen is a restore.
