    Restore the phone and take it back, no need to unlock or do anything.

    You should upgrade to bootloder 4.6 ,erase baseband,restore to 1.1.4 firmware(if your on it) then restore to 2.0

    So no need to refurbish it with ziphone?
    I know the bootloader is problably not 4.6,so I probably have to upgrade it. it came with firmware 1.1.4 so what program should I use for do the whole operation? Also,
    whats gonna happen if they ask me whats my AT&T number or something... cuz I dont have one.

    You could use iLiberty or idemocracy ,first you must erase baseband on 3.9 bootloader ,then restore to the 1.1.4 firware,then use iLiberty to upgrade your bootloader to 4.6 ,then you could upgrade to the 2.0 firware but you don't have too

    what I did. I signed a contract with ATT for 1 day just to get a new iphone. As I was waiting in the store I memorized my att number just in case they asked me for it. Sure enough they activated a new phone for me and asked me for my phone number. (Luckily I memorized it) Went back home called ATT and canceled. If you cancel in 3 days you will get all the fees refunded and will not have to pay the activation fee.
