I need help! i connect my phone to the computer i press do it all in ziphone and it start but at one point it stops. it finds the phone and at information it says found iphone. rebooting in recovery mode and nothing happens...what do i do?

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
IC - March 26, 2008 at 10:00pm
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

Actualy, i do have skype. How do i find your email address?
Tom - March 20, 2008 at 4:21pm
I don't have skype but i could make an account quickly. Do you have MSN?
hanoverian - March 20, 2008 at 3:38pm
no nothing but still what is the reason behind this, do you have a skype if so send me your skype name to my email and we can talk to find out the reason if you would like !!!!
Tom - March 20, 2008 at 3:18pm
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
there is soething wrong did you unlock and activate properly, there must be an edge setting at the end of this menu, i had it then i called my network customer service and they provided my with the settings...may be you did not unlock properly.??? do not know
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
Tom - March 20, 2008 at 2:11pm
I followed the steps as shown above and everything seemed to work but everytime i want to use something which needs internet acces, it comes uo with the message ""Could not activate EDGE: You are not subscribed to EDGE." Should the jailbreak/ activation/ unlock sort this or have i done something wrong? Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Greentea - March 10, 2008 at 7:30pm
Do not ask the same questions, look all posts!!! and there are the answers!
wombat - March 10, 2008 at 6:32pm
@jared: if you used ZiPhone 2.5c then you should be on 1.1.4 already. Check settings, General, About for your version. Otherwise you need to specify more.
Jared - March 10, 2008 at 12:47pm
I used ziphone software to my iphone 1.1.2 otb. Now I would like to update my phone to 1.1.4 how do I do that?
wombat - March 10, 2008 at 12:32pm
....of course the RESTORE to 1.1.4 (tutorial here, get the 1.1.4 ipsw file) must be done FIRST
wombat - March 10, 2008 at 12:28pm
@grimlock: simply use ziphine and do it all. The other steps as said by hanoverian are NOT necessary!
hanoverian - March 10, 2008 at 9:29am
what i did that i downgraded to 1.1.1 and jailbreak it with the usual way, then i restored to 1.1.2 and jailbreak with the devteam the application that installs ssh. then i did a shift restore from itunes to 1.1.4 and used Ziphone 2.5c...hope this works for you
Grimlock - March 10, 2008 at 9:14am
@Hanoverian. I will get another iphone 1.1.2 otb fresh untouched and wish to a,j,u. This new IPhone is for a friend of mine and I dont want to play up after I a,j,u. Did you update your 1.1.2otb via itunes with "restore" or "download and update" before you ran Ziphone?
Grimlock - March 9, 2008 at 11:59pm
Han, Thanks for your help. Worked perfected. Yeah!!, I have a decent updated iphone.!!!
hanoverian - March 9, 2008 at 11:44pm
hi Grimlock, i upgraded to 1.1.4 and then used smb themes fix, under tweaks 1.1.3 then i installed summerboard and everthing is ok, hope this works with you...
Grimlock - March 9, 2008 at 11:07pm
HI Greentea and Wombat. 1.1.4 update is perfect and everything works with the exception of summerboard. I install the summerboard and also some themes but it doesnt show up on the summerboard. Does anyone have a similar prob or know how to fix this?
john - March 9, 2008 at 11:05pm
Joe, try and turn off your phone and turn it back on. Try and reset you internet connection to and see if its connected properly. Have you added the mac address on the iphone to your modem? My best bet is to restart the phone I had similar prob before and it worked
Joe - March 9, 2008 at 11:00pm
i did find how to get to the BS Subsytem but when i hit install it shows that the bsd subsytem version is 2 and after pressing istall it gives me error '"" package download failed : cant find host """ can any one help me out here thx
Joe - March 9, 2008 at 10:37pm
Big Thumps up for the hard work guys, i have one question i used the ZiPhone2.5 it seems everthing when smooth the only problem is i couldn't find from where to install (( BSD Subsystem first then OpenSSH from Installer.app )) any help will be apprecaited
