    Default Very New at this need some help, please.

    o.k. please don't bash since i'm very new at this:

    Here is my situation:

    I am currently on AT&T 's iphone plan but plan on canceling it so i can go back to using the iphone with my old t-mobile sim.

    Since I have already unlocked the first part (IPOD, WI-FI) since I activated thru AT&T, what needs to be done next? Should I restore phone to factory setting first, is this even possible.

    Call to cancel at& t, done...

    next .......


    Please explain it like its for newbie, thanks so much.

    Stacey

    Restore the phone to factory setting by holding the home and sleep button for 25 sec until the triangle appears then connect the phone to itunes to restore. Afetr that, use Iindependent to jailbreak and activate the phone again. After that, go to one of those Software unlock thread in this forum to find out what to do next

    Will this be a problem if I have a canceled AT&T SIM card instead of a new one?

    I don't want to re-lock ipod & wi-fi function if having a cancel SIM will not work.


    thanks in advance anyone

    This will most likely happen if you perform a full restore. Your phone will need to be activated again in order to use Wifi and stuffs. But this can be taken care of by Iindependent and tappapp.
    By the way, if your phone is not unlocked yet and you want to unlock it, there is no way to perform a clean unlock without restoring you Iphone to factory setting, which will relock the phone.

    My phone is currently unlocked because my AT&T account is still active.

    I plan on canceling monday. What is the best way to go about it from there on?


    If there no way to just run the unlock program right after i cancel at&t, will it not work from there as i think you stated?

    this is confusing

    I see. Than before canceling the AT&T Plan. You dont need to restore the phone if you dont want to. Most people do because it safer.
    Right now, anytime you put a different Sim, the phone will say incorrect sim. You'll need to use Iidependent to jailbreak your phone,use tappapp to put the unlock files that you can find somewhere in the forum in to the phone and run it, voila!
    i believe that you can download those required files somewhere in the forum and the gui of the process.Piece of cake.
