    Default Bought second hand iphone 3g restored to factory settings-no original sim-FW version?

    Hi

    I just got a second hand iphone off ebay - its been restored to factory settings (I assume as it just has a picture of itunes and a lead) and I don't have an original sim!

    I have no idea what firmware its on! I'm not sure what to do next- do I put it into DFU mode and restore to FW 3.0?! Then redsn0w then ultrasn0w...

    Seller is ignoring me by the way so I can't find out from them what the firmware is...

    Thanks in advance- cant see any answers using search

    Restore to 3.0, jailbreak and unlock it. Leave your sim in. Any sim, just disable the sim PIN, if any. Good luck

    If you have restored it then It's now on 3.01
    Just download the 3.0 IPSW and resN0w using that (you will still bhe on 3.01) If you need to unlock install UltraSn0w.

    I would have been suggested you the same way. As your problem is solved so my thinking is right. Enjoy using your iphone.
