    Hi there.

    Does anyone have any experience with unlocked iphones and international sim cards??!?! Im living in Santiago Chile, and until recently, never had a problem with my unlocked iphone and putting either Chilean or Argentine pre payed chips in it....

    at the moment I couldnt be more irritated with my iphone. everytime the phone goes on/off i have to unlock the simcard again. no signal and often says sim failure.

    it has been happening quite often, therefore ive refrained from turning it on/off.... but i just recently (last night) updated settings and it restarted.... now no signal, and sim failure.

    could this be some sort of sign the simcard is worn out? or the phones processing is too worn to read the sim card?

    it was weird, my phone died a couple weeks ago. this again happened.... where when i turned it on, it didnt give service, kept asking me to unlock the chip.... and finally after two days, it randomly just started working.... since then I had not turned it off, until I downloaded updates and it automatically rebooted.

    Could the updates that I downloaded have somehow locked the phone back up, so it wont except the sim card?

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help. I am currently in a stage where I need the number corresponding to this sim card... need to be reached.

    All responses are considered lifesaving.

    Sincerest Gratitudes.

    -Rob

    You can use redsn0w to hacktivate. You need to download a copy of the 3.0 firmware for your phone and when redsn0w asks you to locate your firmware, point it at the 3.0 firmware you downloaded even though you are running 3.0.1 This is confusing but it works.

    Default Unlocking the 3G-S

    Hi,

    I am living in Europe and I had a friend of mine buy me a new iPhone from the UK (16gb 3G-S). I planned to unlock it online and use it here but he had it activated in the store so now I am paranoid I won't be able to unlock it.

    Has anyone had any similar experiences with this? Is it still possible to unlock the phone so I can use it with any sim card?

    Much appreciated,
    L

    If you do some searching you will find that it might be unlikely that a new 3GS iPhone can be unlocked. What week was it manufactured, this can be found from the serial number on the box. Look for the 4th and 5th digits of the serial number. If they are less than 37 you have a good chance, more than 37 you can't unlock using ultrasn0w and your only options are to return the phone and get your money back or ask the carrier you bought it from if they will officially unlock your phone. Expect to pay quite a lot for this.

    At the moment your best best for buying an iPhone to use unlocked is to buy it factory unlocked from countries that sell this. The cost is usually at least 600. Please note that no iPhones sold in the US are factory unlocked.

    Hi there, thanks for this information.

    I have a 3GS and the numbers are exactly 3 and 7.

    I tried using pwnagetool to unlock the phone, unselecting "Activate phone" since it's already been activated on my O2 sim card.

    I built the pwned image from a 3.1.2_7D11 image and then used Alt-Option-Restore in itunes to select the custom restore image. The restore failed with error 1604.

    The iphone was unuseable until I restored an official 3.1 image back onto the phone.

    Does anyone know how to avoid the 1604 error and unlock it?

    Thanks

    Was your iPhone in normal mode when you option-clicked restore?
    You should not be in DFU mode when restoring a custom IPSW onto a 3GS.

    There can be other reasons for this error also.

    Your post is really interesting to know. But as wifi is the requirement, my wifi is not working. I do not know what is the actual problem. Is there any alternate way?
