    So, I've got a 2G iPhone that I need to unlock, but it doesn't have a SIM card. What can I do to unlock it?

    And also, I don't know what firmware the phone is on. It's my dad's and it hasn't been used since the 3GS came out.

    Blacksn0w will not unlock the 2G iPhone.

    Blackra1n will jailbreak it but to do the unlock you will need to run bootnueter from Cydia or Rock.

    But you do need a SIM card.

    If you are going to use it as an iPod (i.e. no cellular signal) just restore the iPhone to 3.1.2 and run blackra1n. That's it - No SIM needed (but you will get the "no SIM installed" popup).
