    hi guys,

    just wanted some advice.

    i have bought my first 3g iphone off a guy he said the phone is unlocked for all networks,

    well i have tryed my vodaphone sim card but it stays on usb itunes logo.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    i have started itunes but its giving me a error saying,

    " the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported
    only compatiable sim cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iphone"

    the guy i bought the phone off said it was unlocked to all networks, and i need to connect iphone to itunes to register the new sim to get the new sim to work?

    just wanted to know if this is true? or is there a way to tell if the phone has been unlocked? or is the guy i bought the phone off just saying it is unlocked when infact it is not.

    hope someone can help.

    thankyou

    You didn't have to connect to itunes to get you sim card to work all you have to do is put your sim card in the iphone and if its unlocked it will read your sim card.If not it will say no sim.

    Its obviously not unlocked.

    Download Blacksn0w, jailbreak and unlock.

    ok thanks guys i think your right its not unlocked as i put a 02 sim in phone and it booted on ok. i went into iphone settings and it states,

    iphone version 3.0 ( 7a341)
    carrier 02 4.0

    so its looks like its locked to 02.

    do i just Download Blacksn0w for the iphone version 3.0 ?

    is it straight forward to do, and will i have to watch connecting to itunes once unlocked?

    thankyou for the help.
