NOTE*: After completion its probably a good idea to install BSD Subsystem first then OpenSSH from Installer.app

NOTE*: If you are in an unsupported country YOU MUST patch AppSupport after unlocking or your dialer will keep crashing as will your SMS:

So just to clarify, this will work on a brand new OOTB 16GB iPhone? If I go to my local AT&T store, pick one up, bring it home and run this software I'll be able to put my T-Mobile SIM card in it? How do I avoid having to get a service plan and paying an activation fee? Can I tell them I just want the phone?

@IC, most likely not as it not a 3G/Smart Phone. Try any ways. If you dont try you dont know.
IC - March 26, 2008 at 11:48pm
@GRIMLOCK. Thanks for that. So they releasing a 3G soon? damn....oh well...as least it works now. But just curious again, cause I can use my 3 simcard (roaming) in my nokia 6200 (which is not a 3G phone, but tri-band I gather).
Grimlock - March 26, 2008 at 11:32pm
@IC. 3 network cards does not work because it uses 3G. Where as all other sim cards are ok. Thats why Apple is developed a 3G version of Iphone to be released. If you bought a new Iphone recently it is most likely to be 4.6 BL. 3.9BL are old Iphones released in the first 6 months. Otherwise all Iphone now are 4.6BL

Hi Wombat, yes, its me again. Strange, I inserted my local simcard, and now it shows SERVICE! YES! Where as before, I was using my simcard from Australia, wondering how come it didnt work? IE, it roams on my other nokia phone (btw I uses the network "3", could that be the problem?). Just out of curiosity.... thanks! IC

Hi Wombat, I read all most of the post in this section, and I have some questions. I got a new iphone 8gb a week ago and trying to unlock it to use in China. Now, this is what I have done. 1- restore phone in itunes to 1.1.4 (04.04.05_G) (do I need to install with the 1.1.4 ipw?) Also, how to tell if its 4.9BL or 3.9BL? 2- I selected the DO IT ALL with my alternate simcard in it 3- My email, youtube, safari is working fine etc, but my carrier shows NO SERVICE 4- I have installed BSD Subsystem and OPEN SSH Please advice how to make my iphone work! thanks alot. I tried installing anysim 1.3 to unlock the phone, but says

No, there most definately isnt an EDGE settings menu and im prety sure i did it right, i mean there's not alot to do wrong. I plugged in my iphone, downloaded ZiPhone GUI v2.5 and clicked "Do it all!" Anything done wrong there?
hanoverian - March 20, 2008 at 3:03pm

Tom - March 20, 2008 at 2:57pm
Thanks Hanoverian, but there is no EDGE setting in the General > Network menu. I only have VPN, Wi-Fi and an option to turn Data roaming on/off. Any ideas whats going on??

Hi Guys: After running ZiPhone 2.5, my SMSD is not working. No problem in installing SMSD, but when click that icon, it appears to try loading it,but it won't, and then go back to the springboard (Home). I really like to have this app back as it is much more useful than the stock SMS from iPhone. So, help me out, please.
hanoverian - March 20, 2008 at 2:18pm
hi Tom you should go to setings, then genera, network, then edge at the bottom of the screen and then you have to enter the settings of your network if it is vodafone, or what so ever.....hope this helps you
