Canadians on iPhone 1.1.1 / Rogers
Not exactly "news" or all that interesting for those waiting for the 1.1.1 sw unlock, but just a couple of things I confirmed this weekend...
a) iPhone 1.1.1 firmware works with TurboSIM + a Rogers SIM.
- You need a valid AT&T SIM to activate the phone (can be an iPhone SIM or not).
- You also need an Applesaft programmed TurboSIM, either via a serial-accessible phone (i.e. Razr) or via a 1.0.2 iPhone.
For example, I have a 1.0.2 sw-unlocked phone, which I used to program the TurboSIM. I bought a new iPhone this weekend, upgraded it to 1.1.1, activated it with my old AT&T SIM card, then plunked in the Rogers SIM + TurboSIM combo -- all is well. I'm selling my old 1.0.2 to a friend most likely.
b) iTunes WiFi Music Store is *not* locked to the U.S. store, it allows purchases off the Canadian store.
a) Re-activating the iPhone with the old SIM I believe "resets" your 2-year contract timer. Basically, iTunes walks you through as if you never owned an iPhone before -- it just notes the $20 iPhone data plan being added, while ignoring voice plan selection. Bah.
b) Until there's a good jailbreak + activate solution for 1.1.1, this approach is still bloody hell since Apple requires over the air re-activation with AT&T on every update. I keep my AT&T SIM around because I travel a lot, but otherwise it's annoying.
Cheers - psvt
Thanks for sharing the info.
