[Question] [Solved] How to unlock my iPhone?
I have a brand new 2G iphone OTB 2.1 fw, I do not have the att sim, so when i go into itunes to start the unlocking precess it is not being reconized by itunes, it says please insert sim i tried my t-mobile one and it did not work. Do i need a att sim to do the first step (restoring) of unlocking? I am using the iclarified guide.

when you say 2G are you referring to the first iphone or second generation? the first iphone does not come 2.1 OTB. Either way you do have an option to activate, or if it is the first unlock as well

Do this mate:
1) Update to latest 2.2!
Plug you iPhone to iTunes and press and hold both keys (sleep/home) until
you see that is on recovery mode. iTunes will ask you to recovery, press
recovery and say yes to recovery/update question. No iTunes should install
FW 2.2 for you. Which is the latest.
Once is finished, you'll be back to the same screen you where before, but
updated to 2.2.
2) Pwn the iPhone
Now Click Here to download quickpwn for MAC
or Click Here to download quickpwn for Windows
Open the program and follow the instructions.
Once is finished, you should be activated (you can see the home screen icons)
but maybe not unlocked. If this is the case, and your T-Mobile sim is not
getting any signal, do this:
3) Unlock the iPhone
Go to Settings > General and set Auto-Lock to Never!
Open Cydia (will organize some stuff and quit, only happens the first time.
Reopen it), click search, and type bootneuter.
Install the BootNeuter App and quit cydia. Open bootneuter and switch Neuter
ON, and unlock ON, and press Flash!
The phone will reboot, reopen bootneuter again, and switch Neuter and Unlock
AGAIN to ON, and press flash. This time will start unlocking.
DO NOT INTERRUPT THE PROCESS!
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FULL CHARGED BATTERY!
Once Bootneuter finishes the phone will be fully unlocked and your T-Mo SIM will
work. Now reopen cydia, click Manage > Packages find BootNeuter and uninstall it.
I hope that helps.
worked perfect thankyou to all
You are welcome.
Keep checking the forums for other goodies.
These forums are the real killer "app" for the iPhone.
