Place to start
Ok. I've spent some time reading stacks of stuff on here. (it's great!)
But I'm not sure I have the starting point for me. Please bear with me.
I have an iPhone 3G free by upgrade on my girlfriends phone account but she wants to keep her nokia (mad!)
I have a pay monthly account (different network) with data included but they don't do iphones.
So I have an un activated iphone which I want to unlock etc.
What is my next step? I think from what I've read I have to use my gf's sim to activate the phone (using itunes), then go through the process of restoring to install an old firmware, etc.
Is that correct or should I be doing something other than activating first with her sim card?
Currently I only have the emergency calls option on my nice new shiny iphone.
Very grateful of any help. Don't want to cock it up first time.
Thanks in advance.

I did this, then used blackra1n to jailbreak, then blacksn0w to unlock.
All done inside 5 minutes. No need to do anything else. Very very very simple.
My phone now works with my sim perfectly. And I would recommend this to anyone.
