    hi guys, i'm trying to unlock my new iphone 2g and also upgrade it to 3.0 but when i connect it to iTunes i get the message "itunes cannot activate your iphone because the sim card is not inserted or a sim pin is required." how can i upgrade it while getting this message...or do i have to unlock it with whatever firmware is already on it and then go back, install the new firmware, and then unlock it?


    also, if my iphone is locked and won't connect to itunes, how do i know what firmware is on it? (purchased off of ebay, so i have no idea what they had loaded on it)


    thanks

    put in DFU mode and plug into itunes and then click "Restore and Upgrade"

    it will update to 3.0

    then you just go through the jailbreak and unlock methods for your phone.
