    Default About to get Iphone and in the UK - Advice Needed!

    Hi There!

    I've been considering getting an iphone for some time now and am about to bit the bullet...

    My question is:

    I'm in the UK

    When I get it...what is best to do seeing as I want to use the Turbosim solution to get my calls and texts working?

    As in, which activation to use?

    I'm a bit of a novice, but have been reading up a lot on the forums, so I know all the methods, but is there a *PARTICULAR* one I have to use to get the Turbosim working?

    Also, anyone in Scotland (near Aberdeen) tried or ordered a Turbosim?

    Thanks!

    As mentioned before by another member!

    "you need to use the iasign/iactivator method to activate it, as you need to pair it to the sim card it sees (tell it the imei of the phone, together with the iccid of the sim card).

    I've just done the iActivator method myself and it is fairly straight forward!

    Good luck!

    Thanks!

    Can I activate it with any method (while I wait to TRY and get hold of a TurboSim) and re-activate it later with Iasign/Iactivator?

    I'm running Windows XP SP2, btw...

    Sorry, probably repeating some questions, but just wanting to get this right first time, you know?

    Yes,
    In fact I would not only activate it but get read up and installing shh, you will need command line access to the phone in order to get TSIM up and running.
    I guarantee you if your not ready to go when your TSIM arrives, you will be so anxious to get it all working, you will probably find it really difficult and frustrating trying to run before you can walk!

    You can pair at anytime with IAsign.
    I had my phone up and running with SuperSim method first. Then I got Tsim and simple re-ran IAsign.

    Ok, thanks for the info...

    But, and sorry to sound ignorant again, but do I use Iasign or Iactivator?

    I'm running WINDOWS XP SP2

    Which one is best for me?

    Can anyone link me to a decent (semi)idiots guide to activating in a way that will let me use Turbosim on WINDOWS?

    Thanks!

    Default Iactivator

    Iactivator is for the Mac only, so youd need to use IASign.

    Theres a great tutorial on hacktheiphone to learn how to activate using Windows, as well as how to run SSH.

    That together with the tutorial listed as "A Muppets Guide to TurboSIM" is really all you need.

    Best of luck!

    Hi There!

    Thanks for the reply, but this is from the Dev site:

    "Online iASign for Windows users

    REMINDER: You need to have jailbreak'd your iphone, and to have uploaded iASign's iPhoneActivation.pem

    Just go there : https://ookoo.org/iphone/iasign.php and provide the required data (you have explanations on the page about how to fetch those informations on win32)

    Once you got everything, you can press the button, and download the .exe file. Save it where you copied iTunesMobileDevice.dll (for the jailbreak) and run it from windows. Click "Yes" and your iphone is activated."

    So, before using Iasign, I need to Jailbreak first? Does Iasign not activate my phone? I'm confused. Which method is best?
