    Thanks for clearing that up dukenht
    /me off to buy turbosim.
    Like you say, apple might not update the software for a while so if turbo sim is the only way forward then people are going to use it unless they want a very expensive ipod touch lol.

    When I said good luck, I meant it All I'm saying is I'm not going to try as it is not a piece of cake (programming the turbo sim correctly, cut the simcard,...) and pretty expensive too (a turbosim is 60 euro plus shipping and waiting for it), almost a 100 dollars plus shipping, on the producer's site.
    BTW, could you please post me the link where the dev team said officially we have to wait for an update from apple? I did not see it. thanks a lot

    Just wondering..
    if i go this route(turbo sim) does that prevent me in the future from doing a software unlock when the boys figure out how to do it when apple releases a new firmware patch...

    also.. does my AT&T sim card that comes with my phone need to be activated inorder for the turbo sim method to work... or can i use OOB sim card as is...

    thanks

    Sorry ale if I sounded agressively. I just wanted to clear things up for ppl a lil bit.
    There's a thread last night by pspsully in which you can find the information about how the current baseband wont work with the available secpacks and all that, that's why we have to wait until a new firmware comes out. Also in geohots blog he explained very clearly the difference between the newest code and the previous ones. Only an equal sign makes that much difference. "="
    It all comes down to this:
    new(A00086A0): BLS badversion ; secpackver<=mainfwver
    old(A0000574): BCC badversion ; secpackver<mainfwver
    One equals sign can make a big difference"

    No, it doesn't even touch the baseband/bootloader/whatever. You'll have to jailbreak the iPhone, but thats about it.

    You don't have to activate the SIM that came with your iPhone. You'll just need it to read some values that will be stored to the TurboSIM mem. Thats what the TurboSIM will use to fool the iPhone to think you're using a "blessed" SIM. Activation must be done the regular way.

    All in all, 5 easy and quick steps will have you making calls with 1.1.2:
    - downgrade to 1.1.1
    - install OktoPrep
    - update to 1.1.2
    - jailbreak 1.1.2 (current version does everything, also activates)
    - copy values from AT&T/O2 SIM to TurboSIM, replace with your own <operator_here> SIM

    Done.

    P.S: I did a few in the past weeks for friends and family. All working, no failures.

    thanks for the reply thesman, appreciate it
    one last question
    when you say activation must be done the regular way?.. does that mean jailbreaking and hacking the activation process is bad?

    I do not see why the turbo sim method will prevent you from doing a software unlock later. Besides, that was the ealiest way (aside from the hardware unlock) to unlock the iphone (before the software unlock for the old firmwares was ready) and a lot of people who did that method then did an upgrade and a software unlocked the iphone again

    The sim card you have to leave in the turbo sim is your simcard (you'll have to cut it, otherwise it does not fit the turbosim - and the simtray of the iphone either), not the at&t one that comes with the iphone, of course, even if you need the at&t one too during the process

    Thanks
