    Default Can an iPhone bought in Japan be unlocked to work in the US?

    My gf bought an iPhone 3G while she was back in Japan for awhile (purchased last October). She will be moving back to the US soon, and I am wondering if the iPhone she bought wont be a waste, and if there is a way I can make it work in the states? She has softbank over in Japan, and ATT over here in the States.

    Is this possible in any way? Thanks in advance.

    Just restore to FW 3.0, use RedSn0w 0.72 then UltraSn0w and the phone should work without a problem.

    Hi there! I have jailbroken my two iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 5.1 (both locked in to Japan-Softbank carrier), and I have tried to do the repo666.ultrasn0w unlocking method via Cydia. But it is not recognizing my Philippines sim/carrier. Is there a problem unlocking the Softbank (Japan) carrier? Or is there a problem with their iOS? Hope to get a response. Thank you!
