    Default Will the unlock work with any SIM after unlocking even a friends?

    Will the unlock work with any SIM after unlocking even a friends? Meaning if I unlock my phone, then pop my friends SIM in, will it work right then? Or is the unlock for only 1 SIM unless you reconfigure with a computer each SIM change? Thanks.

    You need to upload the lockdownd file to make it Factory Activated, then you just plug in a SIM and soft restart the phone. Viola.

    From an earlier post by me in another thread:

    Well, I just downloaded this zip: http://rapidshare.com/files/55049908/iunlock.zip.html

    Then I unzipped the lockdownd to my pc. Then using you favorite transfer method, I used ibrikr, Upload it to /usr/libexec in your iPhone.

    Hold the power down for 10 sec, slide the red slider and restart your phone. FREEDOM is now yours!!!!

    Thanks and repped for your help. Does this lockdown program permanently hold or can you remove it with a restore?

    When you say restore, you mean a full FIRMWARE restore using iTunes and not a reboot on the phone itself right?

    Thanks Darth. Are you the same guy i nailed for VIOLA on another thread? If so, I got you again. LOL So this lockdownd is ok to install AFTER I've completed the whole unlock process and it is necessary? I'm just afraid to ruin an already good thing, but if this prevents future headaches from a reset or SIM change, then I want it. It will remove if I do a restore as mentioned above. If I have to do a restore, then I just have to go thru the whole unlock process right? Seems easy enough. Lockdown won't remove on an iphone soft reset will it? Hope not. Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I missed this thread. The lockdownd should last with everything except for a firmware restore.

    If you swap multiple sim cards, it is a MUST. Otherwise, you'll keep getting the reactivate request.

    I used the lockdownd before I did the SimUnlock and then resotre my iPhone to 1.0.2 before using the iUnlock tool.

    Thanks for the reply. So is it ok to install lockdownd on now, since its already been unlocked?

    You said it wouldn't get removed unless you restore firmware, but then you said you restored after you used Lockdownd. Not sure I understand.
