    Hey guys,

    just joined this forum to grab a few qucik answers off you know-it-all's....

    i have tried unlocking the iphone 3g with winpwn, and everything has gone straight forward, but there is no signal... is this because it doesn't hack the phone fully? My friend says his mate has done it, but tbh, i dunno whether he is talking complete BS...

    but the symtoms are as follow;

    Turn it on, works fine, all the new software is on there, BUT no signal at all. So i just came to either two conclusions... either there isn't a working hack for the phone, or i did it wrong...?

    Thanks for your time guys!

    WinPwn or any other program will not unlock the 3G. It's not unlockable as of yet. The Dev team are working on it and are pretty close. Just be patient

    You can jailbreak the iPhone 3G, just not unlock it.

    Google Turbo SIM if you're really desperate.

    Joking.

    Well, jailbreaking is basically allowing you to install third party applications that Apple don't usually allow. Not because they are 'bad', just because they edit some files that Apple don't want you playing around with.

    Anywho, what you can do is basically install some cool apps e.g. winterboard (which allows themes), categories (allows you to make folders and put a group of apps in that folder) etc.

    If you want a method on how to jailbreak I'm sure there's plenty around on this forum. The easiest is QuickPwn. If you just download that and install then it's pretty much self explanatory from there.

    Any problems, just PM me.

    Good luck!

    lol, thanks.

    We used to, but they removed it before I even joined. Can't remember why.

    Anyway, enjoy!

    how did you get a locked 3g anyway without going through apple or at&t??

    i was thinking about upgrading my plan and canceling it to have a unlocked 3g, for about $400. Is there an easier way? Thanks
