    OK so i bought a used iPhone for $120 bucks off, zendoo.com and it came with factory default settings. So i cant do anything with it unless I have a at&t sim. I do have a dummy att sim card my mom gave me from her job, its not activated or anything just an at&t sim card. I have a t-mobile sim card with the sidekick plan which i want to use on the iPhone, all i want to do is unlock the phone so i can use my t-mobile sim. Is there any work around for no having an active at&t sim?

    P.S i have my moms sim card from her iphone, so i put it in and typed in her phone number, and it said i need to contact telecom or something to authorize.

    Thanks in advance, guys

    the sidekick plan doesn't work for the iphone anymore.
    tmobile blocked all non-sidekick phones from using that plan.

    Be sure your on the latest firmware, then use redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak and unlock.

    Ok, put it in DFU mode, flashed it to 3.0. Jailbreaking it with redsn0w right now... it unlocking the baseband currently. The sidekick plan does work, only the data doesnt work, i still have unlimited texting for a $1 a day.
