    Default Iphone delivered 5 minutes ago in UK woohoo! Advise pls

    Hi all,

    Ok I'm after some advise, I have just recieved my Iphone from the states and soo pretty it is!

    Now i'm, in a pickle! Baring in mind the unit cose me 400, i'm wondering what i should do with it obvoiusly i can't use it, It's just asking to be activated.

    Now do i do the DVD John thing? or will that give me problems when it comes to unlock it? & what when i go to use itunes on another pc?

    Now i see loads of other threads about all sorts of things but don't really understand the latest thing to do is.

    Can someone please advise me.

    Thank You.

    Well, when my iphone arrives later this week (also UK), I fully intend to Activate it, even if I can't unlock it yet.

    The DVD Jon method is probably the easiest. Worst case, if the phone needs to be deactivated later to run an unlock (unlikely) you can also deactivate using the Wiki Activation/Deactivation method.

    Does that help?

    I have seen reports that this has NOT worked and people were placed in 'Activation Queues', had to speak to AT&T and then been told that they entered an invalid SSL... back to square one...

    I don't remember seeing anything conclusive that this has worked. Maybe someone else can confirm they have actually done this SUCCESSFULLY!

    Loads of people there have done it (although they are in usa)

    But the phone brings up 0.00 balance info all the time!

    It would appear to be far better to try the hack methods if you're overseas.

    The AT&T 999-999-99 social security number trick *may* work to get you past one screen, but don't forget you're also being validated by your iTunes account, which as we know from buying music is very fussy about your credit card not being a US one if you try to buy from the USA store.

    I'd be very interested to know if anyone with a non-US credit card has managed to legitimately activate their iPhone without physically going into an AT&T store and getting one of the coupon codes to activate a pre-paid plan.

    But it may be iTunes doesn't check the country of origin of your account/card? I guess the only way to find out is try, or search for someone else in that situation who has already done it (not one of the many people who have relatives in the US).

    I am in London, got my phone a few days ago and did waht DVD Jon commends to unlock. Worked first time and very worthwhile doing! I don't know whether its going to premempt us from any action we need ot take to unlock it for any sim though.... Go for it though, in my opinion, otherwise you are just going ot stare at it adoringly!

    I am in Mexico, and when i got my iphone i tried to get a pre paid plan, i got trough all the steps in itunes, i got a phone number from texas and a pin number, then itunes asked me to add funds to my account by going to att website, but there i could not fund my account with a non-us credit card, so i had to do the DVD Jon hack to activate it, it was so easy to do i was amazed, and as that had to do in a windows machine and im a mac user, i tried to sync with my mac and it worked as well, but you have to take AT&T sim card out otherwise you can see the iphone mounted in itunes, but cant see your play lists, you only see a page asking you to fund your AT&T account, but when you take the sim out, you can see all your playlist, videos etc just like an old ipod.
