Help with activating US AT&T phone in the UK please
I know you always get these questions here so I'm sorry for not having anything more interesting to ask but I'd really appreciate some help/advice.
I bought an immaculate 3GS from an auction. I stupidly didn't check the IMEI with Apple to see which carrier it was locked to. Anyway it turns out it's AT&T. The phone came completely back on factory settings so needs activating and then jailbreaking and unlocking so I can use it in the UK.
I've spend the best part of 6 hours today trying to activate the phone with Redsn0w and other tools but I can't even be sure what firmware it is running.
F0recast tells me the following:
Baseband - 05.13.04
Bootloader - 6.4
And at the bottom it says Firmware 4.0. It also says it's
When I try and use the 4.0 IPSW, Redsn0w rejects it saying it doesn't recognise the file. I've downloaded about 4 versions of it now from different sources such as Apply and Felix Bruns but still the same issue.
Any help at all on this will be amazing. Can I just buy an AT&T sim card to activate or does it have to be linked to an account? Or do I just sell it on eBay.com to someone in the states in the hope that they can get it working?
Thanks in advance
