    After I buy a iPhone 3G off a friend whose upgrading to the 3GS and canceling his contract, how would I jailbreak and unlock it? I've been a Touch user for a while now and am a n00b when it comes to unlocking. It won't come with a SIM card, will putting any in allow me to somehow put it into DFU mode the quickpwning it on firmware 2.2.1 until 3.0 comes out?

    the process is virutally the same for the phone as it is the touch.


    personally, i restored via itunes, then jailbreak /w unlock option selected.

    And the phone having no sim in it has no effect on unlocking it? Kyle, that was not helpful at all. READ. Thanks germ. Nice username btw

    as unhelpful as kyle may seem, he is correct. personally, i would just wait for 3.0 jailbreak and ultrasnow to be released.

    you cant unlock the 2.2.1 with the 2.30.03 baseband anyway.

    you will still need to "activate" it via an ATT sim or via qwickpwn when its updated for 3.0

    Ok, as long as I can activate it with Quickpwn WITHOUT a simcard or with a non-O2 Sim.
